Apsara debuts on Bonzai Progressive with this stunner entitled ‘In Motion’, which comes with two superb remixes. Apsara commands huge respect in the electronic music world. She has built a reputation as a forward thinking, stand out DJ and this has been recognised by her peers on many occasions, most notably when John 00 Fleming described her as a “super talent”. Having played all over the world and released her music on top quality labels, we are delighted to be welcoming Aspara into the Bonzai family.
The Original Mix has a quite energetic feel with a jagged bass coursing along to the backdrop of some very cool drum percussions. Nice tough kicks soon follow alongside crisp hats creating a flowing groove. Heavy duty metallic sounds become a focus on the track as the bass deepens giving off a pulsating vibe. Strong progressive edge here with a very cool organic flow, not to be missed.
UK born but now residing in Greece, Steve Self marks his Bonzai debut with a stunning remix. Steve started producing in 2004 and is currently learning classical piano. He got into electronic music during his student days in Manchester where he organised parties and held his own residencies. Steve has also released on many labels covering different genres. Here he gets the remix going with a surreal intro full of garbled vocals that etch a strange vision. Nice and chunky kicks take control soon after and a very well constructed drum and percussion section soon get the rhythms flowing. A cool deep bass lurks in the rear before easing into full flow with lush texture. Full of quirky sounds and quality FX this track is an epic ride that will be a big feature in many sets, no doubt!
Hoova & White Resonance debut on Bonzai with this simply amazing remix. The guys boast an absolute horde of quality releases across many top labels. They are a formidable pair with the progressive house realm and they also delve into other genres on occasion. Here the guys get the remix up to boiling point with a fine display of production skills. Nice and smooth intro with a simple percussion tap and a beautiful melodic pad which transforms into lush chords with a phat kick over the top. A top class vocal that just oozes classic house is the perfect accompaniment to those chords and gives this track a truly house vibe. The deep bass though keeps the track firmly with the progressive range making this an absolute must for any box, top stuff!
