There are many collab projects in the world of music production but there are very few that really hit the mark and do it with little effort. Matt and Manu have hit that mark and we are delighted to have them on this week’s Bonzai Basik Beats. These hugely talented artists have already got a monster release under their belt with You Are Contagious and more on the way. They have recently embarked on their own radioshow, Ethnoscience which is gathering pace each month. Tons more we could say about these two but let’s instead get right into the mix and enjoy the progressive journey on offer. Tracks and remixes come from East Cafe, John Drummer, Samotarev, Max Magnum, Audio Noir, Matteo Monero, Ruben De Ronde, Gai Barone, Controlwerk, Martyne, Julien Bracht, Daniel Nusdeo, Fernando Olaya, Andres W and original works from Manu Riga and Matt Holliday.
