We welcome Narik back to Bonzai Progressive with a superb slice titled, Rush. This one follows his 2020 cut, Shaka EP and promises to be just as well received. Growing up in the 70’s, Narik aka Johann Bomy, 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. Always a pleasure to have him on board.

Chunky beats and rhythmic hats get the groove moving as the pads intensify, layering up and harmonising, taking us to the stratosphere. The tracks main focus is to get us to think, through music, a message of hope and ways to achieve peace. The perfect start to 2021.
