Hailing from Zvornik, Bosnia and Herzegovina Mladen Jurosevic aka Youngen debuts on Bonzai Progressive with The Long Way Home which comes backed up with two top notch remixes. Mladen got into music from a very young age. At just 10 years old he began to play the accordion and made the switch to synthesiser a few years later. His music collection started with an Astral Projection CD – Trust In Trance – and this set him on a collision course with electronic music which he has a passion for. In the year 2000 he invested in his first music production suite – Propellerhead Reason – and from there he learned the program inside out and started to produce his own sounds. As a teenager, he frequented many techno and psytrance parties which would have an influence in his sounds. Over the years he switched to a more progressive house and deep house output, and now his sound is deep, emotional and dreamy electronic dance music filled with deep grooves and melodic sequences.
Italian DJ and producer Luigi De Santis aka GgDex returns to Piston alongside his newest creation KEYGI with the fantastic Yes I Am EP.

Since then he has shown up on various compilations for Bonzai and Piston as well as releases on other labels. KEYGI is Luigi’s newest creation and what a way to introduce, we hope to see more from this guy and his persona’s in the future.
VAN CZAR & DANTIEZ SAUNDERSON featuring ANN SAUNDERSON – THE FORCE (BONZAI BASIKS) – VINYL + DIGITAL RELEASE
Our next Bonzai Basiks release – The Force – comes courtesy of a fantastic collaboration of artists featuring Belgian DJ and producer Van Czar, DJ and producer Dantiez Saunderson and UK songstress Ann Saunderson. Van continues to lead the way in deep techno grooves and his tracks are always powerful tools in the mix for many jocks. After he joined Dantiez on their back to back set at this year’s (2015) Legacy Festival, they decided to get together in the studio and soon after they started working on this fine cut. Over the last few years Dantiez has taken after his legendary father, Kevin Saunderson, and released quality cuts on several labels including Kevin’s own KMS. The guys then decided to employ the soulful, gospel-esque vocals of Dantiez’s mother, Ann. Back in 1992 Ann featured as backing vocals on the anthemic Pennies From Heaven by Inner City which was headed up by her husband Kevin, and went on to record several high profile tracks over the years. To keep it all in the family we get treated to a wonderful remix by the legend himself, Mr Kevin Saunderson who led the way in the early Detroit house and techno scene and gave the world some of the most memorable tunes ever with Inner City and others.
The dynamic duo return to Progrez with another of their deep techno offerings, this time around they give us the superb three track EP – Specterman. Jon ManimaL & Magros aka MetrONomes remain a constant force within our Progrez imprint and their last outing – Mistique set this in stone and gained fantastic support from across the board, their work also appears on many compilations, They consistently provide quality mixes for Bonzai Basik Beats on a regular basis as well as DJing at various venues. Always an exciting time when they drop new beats our way and we look forward to much more in the future.
Russian producer Starodumov Vladimir aka Skyio debuts on Bonzai Elemental with the tripped out vibes of Exoplanet. Ever since he was a child, Starodumov loved to get a closer look at how things worked, he stripped equipment down and explored sound by tweaking knobs just to see what they would do. He studied piano at music school which gave him the skills to hunt down and refine new melodies. In today’s modern processes of music-making this knowledge has gave him a greater understanding of music which he then transforms into his own compositions. He got his first release on Freedom Recordings in 2009 and gained a lot of attention with his fresh approach and in 2011 he released on Only One Records which got great support on radio shows and DJ sets alike. A highly gifted artist we hope to see more from in the future.
Russian based DJ and producer Anton Vishniakov aka Rise and Fall returns to Bonzai Progressive with another of his spine tingling deep prog monsters – Open System, which comes backed up with two superb remixes. Over the last few years he has been responsible for some memorable remixes as well as a few of his own cuts which have gained a lot of support. His last two outings on remix duty was for Phi Phi’s Hiccup and Audio Noir’s Wunderschong on his Almost Famous Reworked Volume 3, both of which gained a lot of support and features. We last got a taste of his own works with Immersion back in February 2015 and based on that we know we’re in for a real treat yet again.
Founded in 2004, Abity aka Argentinean DJ’s and producers Jose Duque and Bruno Signorelli debut on Bonzai Progressive with Anachronistic which comes backed up with Aeroplane in Original and Dub flavours. Over the years they have plied their trade with top quality releases on labels such as Cherry Drop Records, Spring Tube, Baroque Records and Armada Music. Their similar tastes has allowed their style to evolve, a blend of progressive house and minimalist techno elements certainly makes for interesting listening. Delighted to have this duo on board and we look forward to more of their sounds in the future.
