Haievyk aka Ruslan Haievyk returns to Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic two tracker titled The Universe. This one follows the well-received Heartbeat as well as remixes for his own MacoVision project and Scott Rotton. Ruslan is on fire at the moment, he has dished out some top-quality stuff for us in the last few years and we always get excited when his newest works come through the office. His love for electronic music started with The Prodigy which got him hooked. He also likes soft and powerful sounds with melodic parts. He has seen releases on several labels from across the northern hemisphere and he has won a number of music-based competitions in the last several years. His music has seen airplay on many radio stations including Kiss FM, DJFM, DFM and BBC Radio and his DJ sets are known to bring an energy to the floor and for being immersive and dynamic.

The Universe is a wonderfully constructed piece that tells a compelling and mysterious cosmic story. We’re eased into the groove with nifty rhythmic percussions and a solid kick drum leading the way. Distant synths begin to tease as a rich, subby bassline takes control. The synths gain momentum as cascading arpeggios come through. The break is the main event here though, mystifying and breath-taking thanks to a subtle display of pads and expertly crafted FX. A fantastic slice that will not disappoint.

Dynamic delivers a pure, driving progressive groove that locks us in right from the off. A tight drum arrangement is at the core, keeping the rhythms flowing and the groove solid. Spacey synths flow in abundance, setting out that mesmerizing vibe. Powerful basses drive the groove, offering us deep droning sequences to dancey plucks. On the break we are treated to some classic style synth stabs that enrich the groove brilliantly before we head back to full on mode. Another superb effort that is not to be missed.

Our next Bonzai Progressive release features a debut from a host of artists who’ve come together to deliver a top-notch collaboration for the two tracker Earth Or Heaven. Moodigliani, Mad Boss and Bnny join forces to bring a wealth of experience to the table. Moodigliani are producer, DJ duo Fiorenzo D’amore aka DaSouL and Antonio D’Amato aka Tatonka. Mad Boss are Antonio D’Amato, Dario Paltanin and Maurizio Brusadelli. All artists have gained a solid rep in their respective fields, be that tech-house, techno, deep house and progressive house, these guys have been involved in all in some way over the last number of years. They all boast impressive release counts on several quality labels and appear regularly at exclusive parties and events. We would need a whole lot of web-space to go into detail about this group, but instead we’re gonna let the music do the talking.

The Original Mix delivers a superb, cinematic, groovy slice of progressive house. A nice chunky kick drum leads the way alongside soft hi hats and subtle percussions. Deep droning basses stack up against a hypnotic offset bass and swirling, cosmic pads as a wonderful spoken word narrative leads us deeper into the groove as the musical elements continue to captivate. The track is polished off with some cool blips and bleeps that are laced with FX creating a rich textured slice and one that is a definite must have.

The Dark Mix takes us on a deeper path as the title of the mix suggests. This interpretation of the original goes far beyond the realms of progressive house, leading us to a surreal analogue utopia. A strong drum section provides a solid platform for the distinct analogue style basses and synth stabs to shine. Rhythmic percussions deliver a tribal vibe as buzzing synths invade the space. The spoken vocal from the original is minimised here but does not take away from the authenticity. Top-notch stuff that will not disappoint.

Those Old Rave Bastards from O.R.B. are on the loose again, churning out yet another banging Techno joint in the form of Red Tram. CJ Bolland, Steve Cop and Dany Van Der Rieten aka DJ Steel just cannot stay away from the studio, we can only imagine the fun they’re having coming up with tracks like this. Since the launch of After Dark and the debut release, It’s Just Music followed by Sonic Solution’s The Hornet, the message has been clear, have fun and enjoy the music. The guys have laid down a sound which represents all the pristine glory of modern production techniques alongside the very essence of that nostalgic sound from the heydays of rave. They have impressed so far and we have no doubt this will continue, come along for the ride and simply enjoy the music.

Red Tram opens with a dark infused kick drum and some gnarly stabs. A sinister pad rises up bringing an air of anticipation and intensity. The pads dissipate to reveal a classic synth stab laced with pure Techno alongside a very recognisable vocal shot. The kicks are mesmerizing as they pound out a solid rhythm along with shuffling hats and strategic claps and snares. A short break raises the bar after a raucous climax before settling into the groove once again. The main break delivers a strong retro themed buzzing bassline and infectious vox before a snare roll takes us into full on mode for the duration. A monster tune for the arenas or the clubs that will not disappoint.

Celebrated Croatian artist Ivo T Montina aka Cortex Thrill returns with another sublime progressive cut for our listening and dancing pleasure. Ivo is an artist who has come up through the ranks and through the years. He got his first big break with Bonzai back in the early nineties and Cortex Thrill tracks soon became synonymous with the sound of that era. He moved away from that style of Techno to a much more involved, deeper groove and soon he found progressive house. But his style of progressive house is unmatched, it carries a blend of rich, soft, aggressive and melodic tones that are woven together beautifully. His last effort here was on remix duties for Koschk’s Dystopia and prior to that we were treated to the fantastic remix on Blufeld & Nikko Mavridis’ Iris, already this year we are spoilt. So much more to come from this guy, so stay tuned.

Cortex Thrill – Eureka, out this week on Bonzai Progressive, is featured by Beatport in the Progressive House genre page!

So much more to come from this guy, so stay tuned.

The Original Mix is warm with a fluid motion right from the off as a smooth progressive bassline rolls effortlessly alongside cascading arpeggios and a tight drum arrangement. The track delivers a stellar, cosmic vibe that send the hairs rising on the back of the neck, thanks to tasty note changes and perfectly executed transitions. The cosmic theme erupts as a striking pitching synth riff takes over on the break, leading to a superb climax and then back to full on mode. Top-notch once again, not to be missed.

Podgorica, Montenegro based DJ and producer Ognjen Vukovic aka AudioStorm provides a superb remix and follows his last cut, The Day When I Left which was well received among many. From his early childhood he was fascinated by music. He enjoyed its energy and beauty and it was that which made him decide to follow a career in electronic music and he turned his attention towards the pioneering electronic bands of the burgeoning underground dance scene. It was listening to this music which inspired him to begin to explore more progressive sounds. As his interest in electronic music grew, he began to write his own tracks and ever since we’ve been treated to many quality releases. Here, we are served with a more energetic take than the original, doused in ethereal bliss as swirling pads and striking synths converge into melting melodies. The bass drone attracts attention and is joined by a tougher stabbing bass for maximum impact as the floating arpeggios cascade alongside. A wonderfully contrasting piece, that moves us towards the floor and which delivers some serene moments on the break. Totally immersive and definitely one for the set builders.

The Singularity Mix from Ivo delves into darker territory, with a chunkier groove filled with phat beats and a gnarly bassline. A rippling underbelly provides plenty of movement as the track lures you to the depths and the floor. Sublime note changes stand out, creating an emotive side while keeping us locked into the tougher edge. The synths on the break are superb, slicing through the murk with infectious arps in tow. Definitely a contender for the later sessions, a must have.

Mexico native Mauricio Olivos aka DJ and producer Coss Bocanegra debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the superb three track EP titled The Room. Mauricio burst onto the scene in 2015 when he signed his first ep with UK based Detour Musique. His perseverance and creativity have made him adapt to new sounds and methods of producing, expressing his ideas and feelings in each of his tracks. He has recently spread his sound internationally having signed to various labels including our very own Bonzai Progressive. When he’s not in the studio, he provides skillful sets for the In And Out Music crew. We’re delighted to have him on board and no doubt we’ll be seeing more soon.

The Room delivers a sublime progressive groove made up of swirling pads and tight, rhythmic percussions, led by a punchy kick drum and a sub level bassline that rattles the bins with aggression. A subtle retro vibe is evident on the arpeggio, almost veering into 303 territory, but not quite. The plucks of the arp mesmerize and become a major focus in the groove along with some very cool vocals, adding character. A dark mover that will rock the floors, no doubt.

The sonically charged theme from the title track continues into Erendira albeit with a chunkier groove. The track intros with thumping kicks and dark, gritty basses which contrast with a soft voice and bright, hypnotic arpeggio. The bassline is massive, commanding authority and dominating the groove with ease. Gated vox create an emotive element filled with a melodic undertow which adds to the contrasting nature of the track. The break softens down to focus on the synths before rising back to the main groove for the duration. A stomping slice for the tougher floors.

Last Moment finishes up this trio of sublime cuts and, stays true to the theme that we’ve come to love. A chunky groove leads us into a darker arena complete with more of those captivating, classic spoken vocals that become the narrative. Big, punchy kick drums lead a rhythmic percussion section which is laced with quality FX and a deep, rumbling bassline. Smooth, housey chords stack up against sweeping synths and mesmerizing arps. The break unleashes a surreal melody along with the vocal before thrusting us back into the main groove and a tense finale. A must have that will not disappoint.

Koschk returns to Bonzai Progressive with Dystopia which also features two solid remixes from Cortex Thrill and Matt Black. This one follows the fantastic Made Of Stars from a few short months ago and is right up there in the same vein of quality we’ve come to love from this guy. Lebanese DJ and producer Vince Aoun remains consistent in his delivery of quality sounds, he has grabbed the attention of many top jocks like Paul Van Dyk, Judge Jules, and Paul Oakenfold and his tracks appeared on many labels around the globe including PVD’s Vandit Records. Known for a unique, silky smooth progressive groove, we’re always delighted when his latest creation drops through the mailbox.

Franco is a DJ in his home town of Buenos Aires where he appears regularly, playing out tight sets to a wanting crowd. He has recently moved into production with a tendency to lean towards the progressive sound with a distinctive tech flavour.

Lebanese DJ and producer Vince Aoun remains consistent in his delivery of quality sounds, he has grabbed the attention of many top jocks like Paul Van Dyk, Judge Jules, and Paul Oakenfold and his tracks appeared on many labels around the globe including PVD’s Vandit Records. Known for a unique, silky smooth progressive groove, we’re always delighted when his latest creation drops through the mailbox.

The Original Mix conjures up vibrant images of a dystopian age with harsh sounds and some dark vocal snippets. The track is powered by a tight drum section and deep, sub level basses. Hypnotic arpeggios stand firm as the layers build, creating an intimidating atmosphere. Köschk pulls out all the stops here, creating a rich, almost cinematic cut that will sit perfectly into any late-night set.

Cortex Thrill aka Bonzai stalwart Ivo T Montina returns on remix duty after a fine interpretation on Blufeld & Nikko Mavridis’ Iris. From the sweaty darkened rave scene of the mid-nineties, Cortex Thrill has stood the test of time and evolved their sound while utilising the cutting-edge technology of the day. In its contemporary form, that sound has bridged the gap between progressive and tech resulting in a hybrid genre that is unique. Previous outings here in recent years have certainly lived up to that and we’ve no doubt we will be seeing much more from Croatia. Here, Ivo delivers his meticulous progressive interpretation with the usual quality in mind. A strong, powerful groover made up of tight beats and a mesmerizing bass section. Cascading arps are joined by sweeping synths that add rich texture to the sound and a mystical vibe. Top-notch again, not to be missed.

Matt Black returns to Bonzai Progressive on remix duties, following his superb Blindspot from a few months ago. He has been making music since the mid 90’s and has since gone on to have tracks signed to labels such as Stripped digital, Mirabilis and Pro-B-Tech and has had remixes on labels such as Crop Circle, Emotional Content and 3rd Avenue. In the past Matt’s music has been supported by DJ’s such as Nick Warren and Hernan Cattaneo and has been played on both major radio stations and internet stations such as Proton radio and Frisky. Matt brings his A-game to the table once again with an absolute stomper of a track. Wonderfully upbeat with a buoyant groove filled with pulsating basses and a strong drum arrangement, the track leads up to the main event with teasing allure as the main synthline takes hold. On the break the filters are opened to unleash that transcendent and purely euphoric synth that etches its way into your brain for the duration. Fantastic effort that will not disappoint.

He has recently moved into production with a tendency to lean towards the progressive sound with a distinctive tech flavour. We don’t know too much about this guy just yet, but we have no doubt his name will soon be recognised and associated with quality vibes.

We kick off with Coca Cola Black and its pulsing bassline that has been churned up from the depths, encased in a warming glow. Nice, tight beats lead a steady rhythm as space-age synths and FX layer up, creating an ethereal groove that mesmerizes. The track takes us up and down with hair-raising climaxes heralding in each act in fine form. After a display of beautifully constructed sequences, the track settles into an exciting analogue filled slice thanks to those classic stabs. A superb effort that will keep the floors moving long into the night.

Lonely Depression intros with quite a dark theme as muted kicks and a gritty bass synth are joined by otherworldly melodic flutters before a short rising cymbal crashes into a solid, powerful groove. The groove is packed with deep, pulsating basses and sharp stabs that compliment each other perfectly. Hypnotic synths fade in, taking us higher and locking us in for the duration. If you thought this track could not take us any further, think again. Coming out of the blue, rich, vibrant, cosmic pads stack up for a totally sublime sequence that contrasts beautifully with the darker elements. A top-notch slice that is not to be missed.

LA, California based DJ and producer Ian Nash debuts on Bonzai Progressive, delivering a trio of solid progressive house grooves with The New Black. Born in 1993, Ian was first exposed to electronic music at the age of seventeen when he went to Ultra Music Festival in Miami. He was immediately hooked, and went on to DJ at his college radio station, winning the west-coast division of Tiesto’s College Invasion Tour DJ Competition in 2013. After college, he began producing trance music under the name Cloudchaser, releasing his first EP Across the Sky, on Above All Records in 2018. A trip that same year to Dirtybird Campout turned him into a raving fan of house music. Under the name Ian Nash, he combines his love for house with melodic elements, taking listeners on unprecedented journeys through groove, both at home and in the club. We’re delighted to have him on board.

Born in 1993, Ian was first exposed to electronic music at the age of seventeen when he went to Ultra Music Festival in Miami. He was immediately hooked, and went on to DJ at his college radio station, winning the west-coast division of Tiesto’s College Invasion Tour DJ Competition in 2013. After college, he began producing trance music under the name Cloudchaser, releasing his first EP Across the Sky, on Above All Records in 2018. A trip that same year to Dirtybird Campout turned him into a raving fan of house music. Under the name Ian Nash, he combines his love for house with melodic elements, taking listeners on unprecedented journeys through groove, both at home and in the club. We’re delighted to have him on board.

The New Black boasts a strong, probing bassline that straddles a wave of rhythmic percussions and cosmic FX. Tight beats drive the groove as various synths create a rich tapestry of sound. The intro eases us into the vibe, teasing with a static synth alongside a cool bass. As the main bass takes hold, melodic synths emerge, complete with a full-on alarm style retro stab that will definitely grab a lot of attention. Top-notch stuff that is not to be missed.

Different Color Eyes is a beautifully crafted slice that will subject you to an onslaught of frequencies that cohere effortlessly, creating maximum impact on the floor. Strong, punchy kicks lead the way alongside bright hi hats and rhythmic percussions, while a dancey bassline gets the toes tapping. Undulating synths raid the senses, pitching perfectly to create the desired effect of getting hands in the air. An excellent slice that is a must have, no doubt.

Kiwi is a much darker affair than its predecessors with its tougher, analogue style approach to the sounds. A driving beat takes us on the journey as deep basses rattle the low end along with expertly crafted bending synths and an array of quality FX. The track locks us in with a narrative that you just do not want to end. It’s captivating and alluring, guiding us deeper while allowing the body to move to the groove. Very nice indeed, this one will not disappoint.

After Dark is proud to present the brand new two tracker from Sonic Solution titled The Hornet. CJ Bolland and Steve Cop have reinvented their 1991 project for the 21st Century, and man have they created a Techno gem. Their last SS release was over 25 years ago and now, with this new sound, it just feels like yesterday. From the gut busting Beat Time to the warehouse razing Bagdad, these guys made their mark on early rave culture in the best possible way, and they are still revered with huge respect today. CJ and Steve really need no introduction, they remain as passionate about producing and DJing as they did all those years ago and up to today. It’s fair to say that with the launch of After Dark, they have a new wave of energy, taking the oldskool vibe and applying modern day techniques for a blistering hybrid groove that is sure to rock festivals and parties around the world.

Right from the very first beat, The Hornet gives off a strong, powerful vibe. Classic kick drums and spritely hi hats combine for that retro theme as cool FX come through. Energetic hoover synths swarm as the Techno groove lifts off, forcing you to the floor to shake that booty. A monster tune that will be a welcome addition at any club or festival, not to be missed.

Glimmer takes us deeper into Techno with a superb retro themed rendition. Upfront, punchy kick drums are stacked against a deep, rumbling bassline as trippy chords are scattered through the groove. Super crispy hi hats deliver an injection of adrenaline to the sound that sends it into the stratosphere. Cascading synth lines and squeaky FX join a beautifully crafted chaotic sequence that carries soft melodies and harsh stabs in equal measure. In true Sonic Solution fashion, we are veritably locked into the groove and remain there for the duration. A stomper of a track that will not disappoint.

DJ Dag and Matthew Kramer return to Bonzai Progressive with more top-notch progressive grooves to wreck the floors this Summer. These guys have decades of experience and their respective journey through electronic music are impressive and inspiring. DJ Dag aka Dag Lerner is best known as one half of early 90’s pioneering duo Dance 2 Trance alongside Rolf Elmer. He was of course responsible for many other hits in various groups and for lighting up the floors at the Dorian Gray and other venues in Germany and across Europe including Space Ibiza and Cocoon. Matthew Kramer aka Matthias Kramer became interested in electronic music from a young age. He also graced the decks at Dorian Gray and has also plied his trade at many venues in Germany and beyond. Matthew and Dag have been in collaboration for many years with a wealth of top tracks on several labels. They’ve produced a plethora of tracks as solo artists and as part of groups that provided the soundtrack to a generation of clubbers and, it’s clear they haven’t finished just yet. No doubt we’ll be seeing more from these two.

The Original Mix intros with a strong, thumping kick drum which is boosted by an on-beat bass drone. Crispy hi hats soon follow, whipping up a steady rhythm as the percussions build. Melodic plucks emerge with teasing allure before cascading arpeggios join in alongside cool spoken vocals which allude to an infamous secret recording. The groove becomes infectious with sweeping pads and those relentless arps creating an intense atmosphere. Fantastic stuff yet again, not to be missed.

The Remix version intros with a cool robotic voice alongside punchy kicks and a rolling bassline. Shuffling percussions layer up, settling us into a steady rhythmic groove. Subtle synth stabs lurk in the background as rich pads swell up as melodies creep in. After a short break we’re locked into a strong groove that will most definitely get the floors rocking. An absolute must have for the clubs.

UK based producer Anthony Yarranton is back at Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic Aircode, which follows his last effort here, Meridian, from the Summer of 2018. Anthony has been an active producer since 2010. His portfolio of work, released on labels such as Proton, Silk, Perfecto Black, Vapour, Transfused Records and Baroque, has gathered support from a wide range of world-famous DJ’s, resulting in live performances in many parts of the UK and Europe. After a short break from producing and a relocation, he returned to his roots presenting a new, fresh, uptempo progressive style that embodies the late 90’s and early 00’s classic sound.

The Original Mix dishes out a deliciously melodic progressive house joint with a sense of euphoria. A solid construction layered with punchy kicks and shuffling percussions that deliver a flowing rhythm. On the low end a powerful, gated bassline drives the groove as the note changes harmonise with the teasing melody. The synth lead builds and builds to a classic style climax which is a nod to one of Anthony’s influences who is based in New York. On the break we find a serene sequence with soft pads that soon make way for the main groove once more. Excellent stuff, not to be missed.

London based Robin Thurston debuts on Bonzai with this impressive remix. A name familiar to many on the progressive house circuit, he has released music on many top labels which are championed by a host of top jocks. On the DJ front, Robin’s are making people sit up and take notice. Having played a memorable closing set to a packed room at Sasha’s Last Night on Earth New Years Eve event for Room2Move at Brixton Academy, he has also performed at Ministry of Sound and the Egg, and regularly features on the ever-popular Electronic Sessions boat parties on the River Thames. Great to have him on board. On the remix here we get treated to a deep, sultry groove filled with cascading melodies and a real smooth underlying sentiment that grabs you for the duration. A tight drum arrangement powers the groove as atmospheric pads and synths light the way. Top-notch stuff that will not disappoint.

Transient Motion aka UK based producer James Webb returns with a solid remix which follows his Spectra EP from earlier this year. James is a lover of many different genres of music, his influences range from Rock and Indie to Trance, Techno, Hip Hop, Drum n Bass and Classical. He uses these influences to carve out his own unique sound, weaving different styles into a blend of uplifting progressive based tech and trance. He had his first release in 2017 which gained great support. An up and comer with a lot to offer and definitely one to watch. Here, James delivers a superb interpretation, borrowing the punchy kicks and solid drive from the original. The synths build with anticipation as the bassline powers the groove from the depths. Get to the break and be taken into the stratosphere before settling back on terra firma, an absolute must have, no doubt.

Understanding the intricacies of club music has helped Scott become a truly versatile DJ, because of this he has been a staple DJ for some of the world leading brands including 5 consecutive years for Space Ibiza On Tour. His productions are often a modern blend of techno, progressive house and trance, carefully infused into a precisely crafted sonic package. A pleasure to have him on board.

His productions are often a modern blend of techno, progressive house and trance, carefully infused into a precisely crafted sonic package. A pleasure to have him on board.

The Original Mix sets off with a fresh drum section filled with chunky beats and bright, crispy hi hats alongside rhythmic percussions. Striking synth plucks create a trance-like vibe, growing in anticipation. A deep rumbling bassline powers the groove as melodic arpeggios and rising pads come through. On the break we’re lulled into a minimal sequence with airy pads and soft tones before a raucous build up takes us to the main event and the 303 lead. Delivered with subtlety, the acid groove is infectious and worth the wait. Excellent stuff, not to be missed.

Ruslan Haievyk is up first on remix duties. Haievyk is Ruslans new persona for producing and already he gave us the superb Heartbeat as well as some remix work on his own MacroVision project. This guy is hugely talented and it’s always a pleasure to hear his latest work. On the remix here he wastes no time in getting right down to business with an upbeat vibe, complete with cosmic sounds and a solid, rumbling bassline. Cascading arps and bright plucks combine for a sweet melody to the backdrop of an intensely building groove. The break unleashes the full force of the synths before a beautiful climax delivers the much anticipated 303 sequence that blows the track up brilliantly.

Switzerland based F-Act returns to Bonzai Progressive with his superb Back To The 90’s Remix. We last saw Bruno with his Detuned World which gained great support as expected. He proved his feeling for rhythm and music at the age of seventeen when he got his first DJ gigs. Since 1993 he has been producing music as F-Act, mostly as a hobby but in the early 2000’s he’s churned out a plethora of tunes on various labels with great support from around the world. Here, Bruno pulls at our nostalgia strings with a beautifully crafted intro which bursts into life after a few bars with a solid, thumping beat and infectious arp. We’re teased with the main melody as the tension rises. Deep, sub-level basses rock the floor as the track is layered with quality sounds, creating a rich and dynamic groove. The 303 sequence is filtered in with expert precision, causing a frenzy in the groove when it peaks. An absolute monster of a tune that will definitely grab a lot of attention, a must have.

Ukrainian DJ and producer Ruslan Haievyk aka MacroVision returns to Bonzai Progressive with the superb Moonbiturate which features a remix under his newly formed Haievyk persona. This one follows his collab with Isels and their excellent Radiance and the equally impressive Heartbeat which was a debut for his Haievyk project. Ruslan’s love for electronic music started with The Prodigy which got him hooked. He also likes soft and powerful sounds with melodic parts. He has seen releases on several labels from across the northern hemisphere and he has won a number of music-based competitions in the last several years. His music has seen airplay on many radio stations including Kiss FM, DJFM, DFM and BBC Radio and his DJ sets are known to bring an energy to the floor and for being immersive and dynamic.

First up we have the Haievyk Edit dishes out a superb club fuelled vibe with all the traits of its bigger brother over on the epic remix. A solid, driving beat complete with punchy kicks and shuffling percussions will get the floors moving as the infectious bass and synth melody warm the groove. An absolute monster that will definitely destroy the floors.

The Haievyk Remix is an epic slice which lays a cosmic foundation laced with lush progressive tones and an infectious hook. A solid, driving drum arrangement powers the groove, taking us along for the ride. Deep, droning bass tones contrast beautifully with the striking synth plucks that deliver that hook with gusto. The note changes on the bassline are hair-raising, offering a euphoric vibe in tandem with the synths. A journey that captivates, etching a marker on the senses that will remain a vivid memory. Top notch stuff.

Belgian DJ and producer Karim Sghaier aka Karim S returns to Bonzai Progressive alongside fellow countryman Lounasan with the superb Indian Summer. No strangers to BP, the guys first joined us back in 2016 with the excellent Pilots Of The Millennium and, after a few remixes, Karim was back with the impressive Cirao in 2018. Karim started out with his musical career in the early 1990’s singing and acting in theatre while also learning the piano and synthesizer, nourishing his love of music. He also began to buy his first records and shortly thereafter was inspired by Chicago house music and Detroit techno. He soon started to DJ at parties in his local area before breaking out and playing all over Belgium. This brought him to Topradio’s Gemini show every Tuesday evening before picking up his first residency at Bassment In Motion and Underground Techno Party. He has appeared on stage with many top jocks and during his sets he showcases his skills by using three decks while using a Roland TR-909 drum machine. Lounasan was fascinated with electronic music from an early age, always creating new sounds. Over the last several years he has been using all his free time to explore visual and audible impressions, attempting to capture certain atmospheres in certain places around the world. Great to have both back for more.

First up we have the title track, Indian Summer which intros with a nice chunky kick drum and rolling bassline combi. Bright, crispy hi hats cut through the lower frequencies as mesmerizing pads float overhead. Cool vocals add a nice vibe to the groove as cosmic elements rise up. Ethereal, cascading arpeggios on the break take the track to the next level before we come back to the main groove for the duration. A top-notch progressive mover that will not disappoint.

Next up we have the Original Mix of The Sunny Voices. The intro boasts a stuttering bassline groove with a live feeling drum arrangement adding a nice rhythmic vibe. A much deeper bassline fades in with smooth note changes that give the track a dynamic edge. Cool melodies add a beautiful texture to the sound, in the subtlest of ways that really draws you in. The break is a sublime affair as a captivating voice is joined by arpeggios and pads creating a hypnotic groove. An excellent slice that is not to be missed.

Formwandler gets to grips with The Sunny Voice providing a solid interpretation with a classic, retro themed twist all wrapped up in an epic track that will boost any late-night session. The intro eases us into the groove with a series of soft sounds before a nice thumping beat takes over alongside shuffling hi hats. The darkness in the groove is prevalent and this is enhanced with the introduction of retro style 303 lines. A driving, hypnotically charged slice that is an absolute must have.

After Dark is proud to present our debut single from a trio of Old Rave Bastards or O.R.B. as they are affectionately known. CJ Bolland (label head honcho), Steve Cop and Dany Van Der Rieten aka Steel are the old bastards behind the project and they’re here to load us into the time machine and take us back to the glory days of Techno. We don’t think an introduction is really necessary on this occasion, but we’ll give you a recap of who these O.R.B.s are. CJ Bolland is considered with legendary status amongst a generation of electronic music lovers. From his early days collaborating with like-minded enthusiasts in projects such as Space Opera, Phantom, The Project and Sonic Solution to name just a few, to laying down his first studio album titled The 4th Sign which went on to become an iconic pressing. Over the years he experimented with different sounds and to date he boasts an impressive repertoire that includes DJing to dedicated ravers all over the world. Belgian DJ and producer Steve Cop has contributed heavily to Techno in the early nineties. He is the other half of Sonic Solution along with CJ and we all know the top tunes they turned out under that guise. A very much in demand DJ, Steve has played all over Belgium and more recently he has been featuring in several parties held by the mighty Bonzai. Dany (Steel) is a veteran of the Bonzai posse having released tracks under Batteries Not Included with Roel Butzen, D-Bedroom Visitors with Stefan Melis (Bountyhunter) on UVM as well as a few cuts on sub-labels from back in the day. Dany joins forces on the decks with Steve using his Steel persona and they are regular artists on Bonzai’s party and festival line-ups. A formidable trio with a wealth of experience and just the right amount of lunacy to create mind-blowing Techno.

It’s Just Music is a feisty number with modern production values and a classic oldskool vibe. Perfectly constructed with shuffling percussions and a pounding beat, driving a steady rhythmic arrangement, you will be forced to move to the infectious groove. Dark piano chord stabs from the early to mid-nineties Techno sounds are brought to life with a millennial twist, delivering maximum impact on the floors. A relentless, powerful mover that will light up the floors, no doubt.

Warung aka DJ, producer duo Aaron Hopkins and Dillon Ames debut here at Bonzai Progressive with the excellent Matahari. While riding mopeds around busy Bali intersections one half of this duo was intrigued by an Indonesian concept of Warung meaning small family run business. It quickly became apparent how intrinsic Warungs were to the culture, they were self-made, the lifeline of the family, and an ever-lasting legacy to carry on. The concept of Warung became the perfect meaning for their sound and project. Aaron and Dillon decided to put aside their solo projects and together cultivate a rich sound, from the ground up, with the intention of starting an organic musical identity. The cultivation continues but with each groove constructed, they continue to push forward into a new space that warrants a mix of old and new. After several productions and collaborations this duo knows their way around the studio and continue to bring more dance floor ready grooves to a thriving scene. Great to have them on board.

Warung – Matahari, out this week on Bonzai Progressive, is featured by Beatport in the Progressive House genre page!

Matahari intros with a nice thumpy kick drum and shuffling hi hat sequence. A deep probing bassline comes through alongside a raspy, vocoded vocal that adds character to the track. A buoyant groove ensues with a dancey vibe made up of subtle melodies that contrast with the more edgy nature of the low end. The break descends into silence before the melodies fade up with the vocal in tow. The musical elements are mesmeric and come to a smooth climax into the main groove for the duration. A top-notch, light-hearted progressive effort that will not disappoint.

Emosi carries a solid, deep progressive vibe right from the outset. Muted kicks are joined by delicate percussions patterns and a fading in arpeggiated synth line. The bassline delivers a warm groove that adds depth to the track as the arps create a spacious atmosphere. The main riff is eventful throughout, opening and closing the filters to keep us locked in as various instruments dish out their own nuanced melody, forming complex patterns with a meditative undertone. Excellent stuff once again that is not to be missed.
