Goa, India based DJ, producer Rohan Artani aka Rawnn, debuts with us at Bonzai Progressive with the fantastic Blast Off which features two solid remixes from Crocy and Almi & Theus. Electronic music is not the only passion for Rawnn, he is also into movie scoring which is a whole other ball game. His sounds lean on the heavy, melodic side, giving that edgy cut, which falls beautifully into the way he constructs deep progressive and tech grooves. A relatively new face in progressive, he has already seen releases on Mystique Music and Deeper Love. Nice to have him at BP and we hope to hear more soon.
Santini (B) & Quatretemps follow their stellar remix on Greg S’ Lost Feelings with the superb, Powder. With the original release making waves over on our Bonzai Classics imprint, we thought a couple of progressive remixes from three wonderfully talented artists would add an extra bit of spice to the track. These guys really need no introduction, they’ve been stalwarts on the scene for decades, providing magical moments for clubbers and ravers all over the world. They have been and will continue to perform live at many events, breaking from the traditional DJ routine to a more hands on, creative performance. A very much respected duo, not just with Bonzai, but within the international scene, there can be no doubt of the impact they’ve had in shaping the sound of a generation. You can catch the guys at Bonzai Originals 2020 and Legacy Festival 2020. They are also in the studio working on new Phrenetic System material as well as other exciting new projects. It’s well worth keeping an eye on these two, big things are gonna happen.
Fresh off the back of his Bonzai Progressive debut, Boccaccio Life (Chapter 1) alongside Olivier Pieters, PCP aka Pieter Claeys returns in solo mode with the superb Reaching Out. An oldskool jock who is considered with legendary status, Pieter was busy in the 90’s destroying the roof of the famous Belgian dance music utopia, Balmoral (and still is). He also held a long-term residency at The Temple (formerly Boccaccio). Over the last several years, he’s released a raft of tracks on various labels, including his own, Rewritable Records and sub-label Vintage Deep. Great to see him back and we hope to see more in the future.
Doriaan aka Mexican DJ, producer Dorian Padilla is back at Bonzai Progressive with the superb U-Boot. This one follows hot on the heels of his last effort for us, a sublime remix on Undertale’s Alive But Dead. In 2015, he had his first official release under Mexican label Sky Records. After some other solid releases with Sky Records, he debuted on one of the biggest labels in Mexico, Jumpers Recordings. Doriaan is building up a discography that has one objective, make people dance and feel a wide range of emotions. He has been focused on producing quality music with influences ranging from techno, to deep house, psy trance or even classical, his very diverse musical taste inspires him to create music that has groove, melody and emotion. 2020 promises to be another good year for him, delivering more music than ever in his short career and pushing the boundaries to make his sound better and better every day. Always worth keeping an eye on this talented artist.
Spanish artist John May debuts with us at Bonzai Progressive with the superb Electromagnetik which features a top-notch remix from two of our very own heavy-hitters, Manu Riga and Phi Phi. Highly influenced by the Synth-pop of the 80s and the melodic electronics of the 90s, he has spent over 18 years composing for himself and for others, producing remixes, creating projects within the different genres of electronic commercial as well as underground and club sound. By the year 2002 he had a number one on the dance floors of Spain alongside J. Puentes and their duo Pro-Active. He then got more into house music, producing for Vince Magnata and remixing various artists from the USA. More recently he found himself getting into the Progressive and Techno scene, with deeper melodies and more underground groove. We’re delighted to have him on board.

His last outing came back in 2017 alongside fellow countryman Paul Jove and the very well received, Farewell Inti EP. With a hugely impressive back catalogue on top labels this guy has one thing on his mind, to transmit his energy into everything he does creating an exciting and amazing experience to his listeners. Great to see him back for more at BP.
Russian electronic music artist Undertale, debuts on Bonzai Progressive with Alive But Dead, which features a solid remix from Doriaan. Undertale is a new project who used to go by Santiago Frenz, where he produced a range of mid-tempo, deeper sounds for many years. He is a very much in demand DJ on the underground scene in his hometown of Ufa, and we are delighted to have him on board at BP.
One of our stalwarts here at Bonzai Progressive, AudioStorm, returns with the fantastic Echolocation. Hi Last outing here was on remix duties for Theus’ Get Away. From his early childhood he was fascinated by music. He enjoyed its energy and beauty and it was that which made him decide to follow a career in electronic music. By the beginning of the 90s, as grunge rock took over, he turned his attention towards the pioneering electronic bands of the burgeoning underground dance scene and in particular the music that was coming from Goa, India. Psy-Trance, as it became known, was for AudioStorm a diverse, forward thinking, adventurous mix of eastern and western cultures and new and older sounds.
Lebanese DJ, producer Köschk is back with a fresh new four tracker in the form of his latest offering, Speak My Mind EP.

Always a delight when he drops some new material through the mailbox.
