CORTEX THRILL – MITOCHONDRIA FEATURED BY BEATPORT

The wait is finally over, Cortex Thrill aka Ivo T. Montina returns to his Bonzai home, after 20 years on hiatus, with the retro laced upfront progressive house cut Mitochondria. Ivo launched his Cortex Thrill project in 1993 on Loving Ed Records, but he was soon picked up by the expanding Bonzai Records in 1994 with his debut – Intro. A string of classic hard trance, trance and techno EP’s (Duction, Infiltration and Euphoria) followed – along with a quality remix for Jones & Stephenson’s First Rebirth – and it was during this time that he was joined by studio partner Sven Gleda. In 1995 the guys took a break and returned in 2001 with releases on various labels including the album The First Contact Death Star on Croatian label Dancing Bear. As Sven pursues other projects, Ivo took the decision to revamp Cortex Thrill and the results are simply stunning. Even though it’s been 20 years since his last Bonzai release, he is in tune with the quality sound the label offers today. As if his return isn’t good news enough, Ivo is committed to delivering more of his unique sound in future release, something we very much look forward to. For now though we invite you to Mitochondria and its two superb remixes from Fabian Jakopetz and RBA.
