Bonzai Progressive is proud to present its next release, Odyssee by Innertales, featuring two brand new remixes with diverse styles for the 21st century. Written by the late great Philippe Van Mullem and produced by Phi Phi, Odyssee first appeared on Hard Times Recordings in 1994 before being snapped up to appear on the 1998 Bonzai Trance Progressive cut – Return To Odyssee, as Earth Odyssee. Philippe and Phi Phi had enjoyed a very successful studio partnership, putting together a string of hits as Dobel You, Honey C, The Gaps and of course, Quadran. Sadly, Philippe passed away in 2015, although his legacy lives on. Phi Phi remains a stalwart on the electronic dance music scene, churning out lush progressive grooves as a solo artist as well as several collaborations with a raft of top artists.
The first remix comes from a trio of established artists who have amassed a hugely impressive back catalogue over many years. Phi Phi, Karol Dhe and Electro Men Age, deliver their Remix 2022, taking us into deep progressive vibes with smouldering and moody grooves. A much darker interpretation, we find those original melodic elements weaving through the murky, bassy tones. The track charges forward, filling the spectrum which will no doubt send shockwaves through the speakers onto the floors. Top-notch stuff. Belgian DJ, producer Mad Gregor is up next on remix duties, dishing out a sublime effort filled with a Jarre-esque vibe. Chunky beats and rhythmic percussions are joined by an infectious rolling bassline and an ethereal atmosphere. An array of soft melodies combines before striking synths and gritty stabs coupled with piercing pads build on the dreamy construction. A beautiful rendition that is not to be missed.
