PHI PHI & MANU RIGA – MOON DUST FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Up next on Bonzai Progressive we have a meeting of minds from two musical maestros, namely, Phi Phi and Manu Riga. This Belgian duo are getting together properly for the first time and we’re blown away by the end product of this much anticipated clash of titans. An introduction is not really needed here, we all know the calibre of these guys and we’re more than familiar with their beautifully crafted works. Manu Riga aka Adriaan Baussens ranks high among many as a top artist, dedicated to delivering maximum experience to the listener. When he produces music you just know he puts his soul into the groove and, the best part is, he can apply this to several genres as he’s proven in the last few years having delved into the likes of melodic techno, tech, downtempo, chillout and of course progressive house. His last outing, Kurudi, was well received as ever and we hope to see more in the future. Phi Phi aka veteran DJ and producer Philippe Toutlemonde remains at the top of his game after more than 30 years in the business. He has been at the forefront of the dance music scene in Europe during that time and he was a pioneer in the early progressive trance sound. He’s continued to deliver the goods over the last several years and he regularly joins forces with other top producers where he injects his wealth of experience into the project. Always a pleasure having him here at Bonzai Progressive.

MANU RIGA – KURUDI FEATURED BY BEATPORT

We welcome back experienced Belgian artist Manu Riga with his superbly crafted two track slice titled Kurudi. Since 2010 we’ve seen this guy’s sound evolve and mature, taking his sound on a journey to find new ideas and forming unique musical textures. With a hugely impressive original and remix release count, we continue to be surprised by just how talented he is. More recently he has taken to a more direct, club orientated approach, a deeper more upfront style, which is being appreciated by his core fan base and wider music loving community. His latest offering was on remix duties for Night Shift Master’s Code Red which, as expected, gained great support. Over the last several months he successfully took the reins at Vesta Records alongside Rick Pier O’Neill and he continues his monthly radio show, Escape on Progressive Beats radio. It’s always a pleasure when his latest original works comes through the office, because we know we’re in for a real treat.
