TIESTO – THE TUBE – MATAN CASPI REMIX (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

We continue our 25th year celebrations with another classic remixed in contemporary style. This time around Matan Caspi gets to grips with Tiesto’s 1996 cut The Tube which first appeared on our XTC imprint back in the day. Tiesto aka Tijs Verwest really needs no introduction, he’s achieved global success in the last 20 years playing in massive arenas to sold out concerts as well as unleashing a torrent of music in that time. His early days stretch right back to 1990 and he is the man behind a multitude of aliases which littered the early 90’s with some memorable moments. He first appeared for us on Bonzai Jumps with Glycerine – 666 in 1995 which also led to contributions on other BJ cuts. His first release as DJ Tiesto was this one which came around the same time as his other Bonzai Jumps releases – Second Game and When I was A Sperm – under his Tom Ace and TB X-Press (with Bjorn Wendelen aka DJ Ghost) monikers respectively. Matan Caspi takes to the helm on the remix and yet again he impresses with his attention to dishing out pure quality progressive house. Based in Tel Aviv he remains undoubtedly one of the most productive electronic music producers under the spotlight. He has been constantly developing his music productions and his work has been internationally exposed and played by many artists and top DJ’s around the globe. Over the years he has amassed 15 original cuts with us at Bonzai HQ as well as a ton of remixes and appearances on many compilations. He’s also a regular visitor to our Bonzai Basik Beats radioshow where he delivers tight mixes at every turn. He runs the label Outta Limits together with his good friend and production partner Stan Kolev and is always busy with touring and concentrating on his future productions, where you will find original, raw and innovative material.

He quickly gained a reputation as a talented artist and travelled to the US where he became embedded into the music scene there. He set up two record labels, Pro Records and Garbage Records and tracks from these labels have been hammered by top jocks all over the world. We’ve seen several hugely impressive remixes from him on BP over the last few years and no doubt we’ll be seeing much more. Manu Riga remains a much revered artist at BP, he’s contributed so many wonderful gems over the last 7 years and he doesn’t seem to be letting up just yet. He never fails to deliver on the quality front and he recently ventured into a new style for his music with excellent results. His last outing was on remix duties for Brlee – This Is The Place which followed the amazing Your Silent Cries which grabbed a lot of attention. Mandy Jones returns with her sultry tones and delicate inflexions to provide the vocals on Still Alone. She worked with Manu Riga on Disconnected and brought a whole new dynamic to the progressive sound, nice to see her back once again. Three top notch artists at the peak of their game.
