QUADRAN – ETERNALLY – MANU RIGA DARK TECH REMIX FEATURED BY BEATPORT

One of Bonzai’s most prolific artists gets to grips with one of Bonzai’s most famous cuts. Manu Riga takes on Eternally by Quadran, a track that spawned the pioneering Bonzai Trance Progressive label back in 1996. Our 25 years celebrations just wouldn’t be the same without including Quadran, at the time made up by the formidable duo of Philippe Toutlemonde and Philippe Van Mullem – who sadly passed away in 2015 and who is dearly missed by many around the world. These guys had worked on numerous projects together over the years and Quadran was certainly the most popular. A string of hits in the mid to late nineties piqued the interest of many true progressive fans and after a short period of inactivity Philippe Van Mullem brought the Quadran sound into the new millennium to the delight of many. Manu Riga is undoubtedly one of Bonzai Progressive’s hardest working artists with a raft of originals and even more remixes that could easily fill a whole set all night long. His sound has touched many and he shows excellence in everything he touches. Recently he has tweaked his style to be slightly darker, with a touch of tech which shines through in this remix. Get on this one, it will blow the roof no doubt and keep an ear out for more special remixes in the months ahead.

Renowned club DJ and music producer Greg S debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the superb Go Away which features two top notch remixes from Matan Caspi and Manu Riga. Greg is much revered across Belgium and Europe for his energetic sets at many top clubs. From just 16 years of age he became hooked on electronic music after visiting clubs such as Boccaccio, Cirao, Balmoral and Extreme. It was then that he knew what he wanted to do. His big break came when he landed a residency at Top Tien and from there he secured gigs in several venues including Bocca (Resident), La Rocca, La Gomera, Club Lux (Resident), Riva, The Factory, Noxx, Pacha (Bordeaux) and KU-Lounge (Benidorm) as well as festivals such as, Insomnia Nights (Resident), Magic (Resident), Illusion at the beach, Cafeina, Beachland, Ibiza at the beach, Dance -D-Vision, Retro Arena (Topradio), Le Dimanche, Happy People, Tentacao, Drunk’n Funky, Sunrise Festival and Sunset Festival. His style is a mix of Deep House, Nu Disco, Tech House and Retro. In 2014 he got into producing music and his first track – Coming Your Way – was released with great support. This guy thrives on music, it’s his passion and the passion pushed him to organize his own events – Back And Forth and Eccentric. Great to have him on board and we hope we see more soon.
