One of Belgium’s much loved artists returns to Bonzai Progressive with (no) Regrets which comes backed up with a fine double remix from Stan Kolev. Greg recently signed to Bonzai and his debut slice Go Away was very well received indeed. After dreaming of working in the music industry from a young age, Greg realised his dreams when he became resident at several top clubs and soon he was a household name in the clubbing scene. He found himself wowing the crowds at Insomnia Nights and Magic. Other regular appearances on the festival scene include Illusion, Bonzai & Friends, Illusion at The Beach, Beachland, Retro Arena, Sunrise Festival, Sunset Festival and more. Greg has now started to organise his own events – Back and Forth and Eccentric where he plans to bring a wide selection of music to the masses. His style is a mixture of Deep House, Tech House, Nu Disco and Retro and wherever you hear him play you’ll know just how much he loves spinning as he takes you to the floor.
The Original Mix intros with a crispy hi hat and sharp clap combi as striking vocal snippets come through. A powerful, pumping kick drum delivers a solid punch alongside a deep probing bassline and more of those cool vocal shots. Simple one note hits litter the sound as a mesmerizing staccato string fades in. The track breaks to reveal a perfect club style vocal which is accompanied by swelling pads for maximum effect taking us to the climax and back to full on mode. A fantastic slice of progressive house music that will most definitely keep the party rocking.
Miami-based DJ and producer Stan Kolev returns to Bonzai Progressive after his last outing – Circulation, with a double header remix. Over the years Stan has earned himself a place at the top of Progressive House music as a highly respected and in-demand producer. Moving to Miami from Bulgaria at an early age, Stan began producing in 1996 and by 2003 he already had a massive world-wide hit with De Moma De under the name Casa Flava, which also hit UK Top 40 Dance Chart. He has released more than 700 originals and remixes on the most respected record labels in the world. He has also taken his music outside the club scene by producing music for Porsche TV commercials as well as having a track featured on the hit TV series CSI: Miami for several years in a row. Always a pleasure to have him here at BP. On the remix here Stan opens with a nice crunchy bass sound before a muted kick drum and shuffling hi hat takes over. Rising pads fade in along with cool percussions to form a cool rhythm. The beats are beefed up leading the way for the sub level rolling bassline that dominates the low end. Subtle musical notes enhance the pads and on the break a touch of melancholy comes through contrasting with the striking vocal. After a smooth climax we head back to the main groove for the duration. Not to be missed. Stan also provides a Dub version with the vocal stripped out for the deeper sets.
