The ever impressive Koschk returns to Bonzai Progressive alongside four top artists who deliver brand-new remixes on his Speak My Mind EP. Koschk remains a firm favourite, with his brand of silky-smooth progressive house resonating well among other artists and DJ’s. With years of experience, comes the consistent output we’ve become accustomed to and, as a testament to that we just had to get these new remixes on board which do justice to the originals is the best possible way.
We continue our Club Traxx series with Progressive House 25. As ever, we’ve carefully selected 20 of the finest progressive cuts, collating them into a refined package for your convenience. This is the perfect way to boost your crate and give the crowd an in-depth, journey-led set they will never forget.
Fresh off the back of his last effort here with Dome, Rafa Alcantara returns with the fantastic, Radar which includes two solid remixes from Coss Bocanegra and BRVNNI. Also known as DJ Killer, Rafa is one of the most influential DJ’s in Spain having been instrumental in building the electronic music scene there. From the early 90’s he has been a constant presence on the local scene as well as playing on the world stage at top festivals and clubs. He co-founded Negritta Records in 2000 and quickly became noticed by the likes of Pete Tong who offered great support on BBC Radio 1. Great to have him back.
Narik makes a welcome return to Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic three tracker titled Shaka EP. This is Narik aka Johann Bomy’s second stint here after his Summer 2019 debut with Try To Understand featuring Zara Taylor. Growing up in the 70’s, Johann experienced all kinds of music, but it was the New Beat, House Music era that really grabbed his attention, making him passionate about electronic music in general. He was always on the lookout for the latest tracks which helped him learn about and want to know more about where the music came from. This turned into a desire to start producing and, since 2017 he has churned out a raft of quality cuts on various labels with a great support base. We’re delighted to have him on board.
We welcome Fatih Kosar and E. Eren back to Bonzai Progressive with another sublime slice titled Fate. This one follows their equally superb Lock-In from mid-2019 and features a fantastic remix from Neptun 505. Hailing from Istanbul, Fatih and Eren have carved out a solid reputation on the dance music scene. Faith’s passion for underground music during his early years, led him to electronica and a job at the popular Twenty club. From here he started to gather dance records, gaining experience and forming a party collective called Groove Therapy. He remains an underground DJ and he loves the deeper sounds of house and progressive. E. Eren is obsessed with spreading sound frequencies that expand the sonic boundaries of the present by feeding off the past and future roots of culture. A lover of several genres, his sets are innovative and raw. He’s held residencies as top Istanbul clubs, playing alongside a host of world-renowned jocks and ha has presented his own radioshows. A pleasure to have them back at BP.
One of our most prolific artists, Karim S, returns with another stomper for our listening pleasure in the form of his techno infused Back In Time which, comes packed with three stand out remixes. It’s been a while since his last effort here with Indian Summer alongside Lounasan, but he always delivers the goods when called upon. Having started his musical career in the 90’s, Karim is well placed to bring back some memories of the scene, going ‘back in time’ to get a flavour of the sound. This one is special, delivering a cool retro sound with a contemporary edge, not to be missed.
Goa, India based DJ, producer Rohan Artani aka Rawnn, debuts with us at Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic Blast Off which features two solid remixes from Crocy and Almi & Theus. Electronic music is not the only passion for Rawnn, he is also into movie scoring which is a whole other ball game. His sounds lean on the heavy, melodic side, giving that edgy cut, which falls beautifully into the way he constructs deep progressive and tech grooves. A relatively new face in progressive, he has already seen releases on Mystique Music and Deeper Love. Nice to have him at BP and we hope to hear more soon.
Santini (B) & Quatretemps follow their stellar remix on Greg S’ Lost Feelings with the superb, Powder. With the original release making waves over on our Bonzai Classics imprint, we thought a couple of progressive remixes from three wonderfully talented artists would add an extra bit of spice to the track. These guys really need no introduction, they’ve been stalwarts on the scene for decades, providing magical moments for clubbers and ravers all over the world. They have been and will continue to perform live at many events, breaking from the traditional DJ routine to a more hands on, creative performance. A very much respected duo, not just with Bonzai, but within the international scene, there can be no doubt of the impact they’ve had in shaping the sound of a generation. You can catch the guys at Bonzai Originals 2020 and Legacy Festival 2020. They are also in the studio working on new Phrenetic System material as well as other exciting new projects. It’s well worth keeping an eye on these two, big things are gonna happen.
Doriaan aka Mexican DJ, producer Dorian Padilla is back at Bonzai Progressive with the superb U-Boot. This one follows hot on the heels of his last effort for us, a sublime remix on Undertale’s Alive But Dead. In 2015, he had his first official release under Mexican label Sky Records. After some other solid releases with Sky Records, he debuted on one of the biggest labels in Mexico, Jumpers Recordings. Doriaan is building up a discography that has one objective, make people dance and feel a wide range of emotions. He has been focused on producing quality music with influences ranging from techno, to deep house, psy trance or even classical, his very diverse musical taste inspires him to create music that has groove, melody and emotion. 2020 promises to be another good year for him, delivering more music than ever in his short career and pushing the boundaries to make his sound better and better every day. Always worth keeping an eye on this talented artist.
Spanish artist John May debuts with us at Bonzai Progressive with the superb Electromagnetik which features a top-notch remix from two of our very own heavy-hitters, Manu Riga and Phi Phi. Highly influenced by the Synth-pop of the 80s and the melodic electronics of the 90s, he has spent over 18 years composing for himself and for others, producing remixes, creating projects within the different genres of electronic commercial as well as underground and club sound. By the year 2002 he had a number one on the dance floors of Spain alongside J. Puentes and their duo Pro-Active. He then got more into house music, producing for Vince Magnata and remixing various artists from the USA. More recently he found himself getting into the Progressive and Techno scene, with deeper melodies and more underground groove. We’re delighted to have him on board.
JoC H aka Bolivian DJ, producer Jose Henry returns to Bonzai Progressive with the superb Momentum EP. This one comes after a bit of a hiatus and marks his fourth release with us since 2016. His last outing came back in 2017 alongside fellow countryman Paul Jove and the very well received, Farewell Inti EP. With a hugely impressive back catalogue on top labels this guy has one thing on his mind, to transmit his energy into everything he does creating an exciting and amazing experience to his listeners. Great to see him back for more at BP.
