FERMANZ & DEL CASTIO – 3 DEGREES [BONZAI PROGRESSIVE]

Turkish DJ and producer duo Fermanz and Del Castio mark their Bonzai Progressive debut with the dark progressive tones of 3 Degrees. Fermanz grew up with a musical family and was collecting records from a very young age. Influenced by the sound of the 80’s, he started to DJ in 1999 before getting the producer bug the following year where he released his first effort titled Awakening. Several releases followed including Save A Prayer which was remixed by Stan Kolev. He decided to change his name from Peaceful Mind to Fermanz and has since signed with a few labels. So much more to come from this guy and it’s great to him here. Del Castio started his music journey in 1997 as an MC at Hip Hop parties. In 2002 he took to the decks and became a pro DJ, working at various clubs and events. His style is varied, he can turn his mixing skills to any genre which puts him in a unique position. He loves the reaction from his crowds while DJing and also when he plays his own latest creations. Delighted to have him on board and hopefully we’ll see much more in the future.

MATAN CASPI – EUNOIA [BONZAI PROGRESSIVE]

Matan Caspi is at it again, he’s created yet another masterpiece for our listening pleasure in the form of Eunoia which comes with two excellent remixes. The last several years has seen Matan’s profile grow and grow, breaking into new ground with new fans coming thick and fast. This is all down to his dedication and the way he works his progressive grooves on the floors. He started experimenting with music when he a was little kid, playing the guitar and the keyboard, mostly thanks to his father who pushed him in that direction. He later played in some rock bands before finding electronic music somewhere in late 1999 after hearing a few tracks which really made him think that by producing it you are not dependant on other players and can compose the entire track by yourself. With constant practice on some music production programs he understood that this is what he wanted to do and this proved to be his calling as the many years of quality tracks will show.

BLUFELD – ANONYMOUS WE STAND [BONZAI PROGRESSIVE]

We kick off 2019 in emphatic style with a superb offering from one of our in-house stalwarts, Blufeld and his awesome Anonymous We Stand which features a brilliant remix from Narel. Last time we got a taste of Blufeld’s uplifting progressive sounds was on remix duty for Ottexx’s Welcome To My Space back in the Summer of 2018. For many years Blufeld has been captivated and completely mesmerized into a three-dimensional world of sound, and endeavours to maximize all levels of the sonic and emotional spectrum so as to reach and tug at the heartstrings of people who love electronic music. He is a craftsman with a deep sense of care and love for the output and quality of his productions, a producer who works solo to use sound and imagination to output everything that’s inside his heart and mind to create some of the most complex and deepest emotive tracks in progressive house music. For him, electronic music is the pulse of life. Evocative of all genres, yet guided by a set of dynamics and instrumentation very much of its own unique identity. Always the professional with an intelligent sound, his work always gets the office buzzing.
