MANU RIGA – UNSTOPPABLE FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Manu Riga is back with his latest effort, the two tracker Unstoppable, a fresh sound that will definitely get floors pumping. We’ve grown extremely fond of this guys talent over many years, he never disappoints and delivers his music with integrity and professionalism. Having mainly focused on the deeper end of progressive we now get a chance to hear a different side of Manu Riga. After many thoughtful weeks, Adriaan is about to unleash a slightly different style than before. He is aiming directly for the floors with a more clubby approach all wrapped up in an expertly crafted package. On the DJing front you can catch Manu Riga in the mix on his monthly podcast Escape which can be heard on Progressive Beats Radio. An ever increasing fan base, top charting positions, a successful album and follow up remix package on top of a hugely impressive back catalogue, this guy certainly is Unstoppable.

JEEVES – MUTATE (GREEN MARTIAN)

Jeeves debuts on Green Martian with the fantastic Mutate which comes backed up with a remix from music maestro Manu Riga. Mutate is a full on driving progressive groover with some wonderfully crafted melodies that float across the track creating some very nice textures. At its core we get a strong, solid beat which is joined by a throbbing sub bass. Swirling pads and cool FX litter the sound as a mysterious deep spoken vocal comes through. The big hitter here though is the drum section with that pounding kick and crispy hats creating a smooth rhythmic flow. Top notch stuff that will not disappoint.

STAN KOLEV – BREATHLESS (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Based out of Miami Beach, Florida, Stan Kolev returns to Bonzai Progressive with the superb Breathless which features two stunning remixes from Manu Riga and Rise and Fall. This guy has been churning out quality vibes for over 10 years and in that time he has turned his hand to many styles and genres. He focuses mainly on progressive house but you will find he can dish out top notch deep house, house and tech house with the same dedication and resulting quality. A very much revered artist by his peers, Stan inspires many to reach his standard. His back catalogue is mind blowing and he has appeared on many top rated labels over the years. Great to have him on board at BP and no doubt we’ll see much more in the future.

MANU RIGA – SURROUNDED – REMIXED FEATURED BY BEATPORT

Manu Riga aka Belgian multi talented artist Adriaan Baussens recently gave us his emotionally charged, quality filled album Surrounded, which performed extremely well on the scene having climbed high in many charts with support from the cream of the crop in the electronic music scene. The album was packed full of stunning progressive sounds and deeper house grooves, so what better way to celebrate this than to call in a host of top notch artists to give the album a remix makeover. Manu Riga’s journey through music has been one of dedication and passion with every project given 100%% to ensure that only the finest quality is delivered. It’s also been filled with personal ups and downs due to his health condition, but with a close knit circle of friends and a dedicated fan base he finds the strength to continue fulfilling his dream of making good music. Without doubt he is one of the hardest working producers around and this is shown through his tremendous contributions to Bonzai Progressive, in both original and remix work. During and after the album he has relentlessly churned out fantastic music and his latest remix from Man On The Moon is testament to that. With so much more coming up in the near future, it’s well worth sticking around to follow this guys story.

MAN ON THE MOON – SENSE (MANU RIGA’S PERSEVERANCE REMIX) CHARTED BY BEATPORT

The hugely talented Manu Riga steps for remix duties on this one with his Perseverance Remix and once again he delivers a fine slice of progressive for our listening pleasure. For the past 11 years this guy has been a champion for the Bonzai Progressive sound while realising his own diverse sounds. Still enjoying the warm reception from his studio album (as Manu Riga) Surrounded, he wasted no time in getting back to full on work mode and is already lining up some new material and remixes such as this one and his last outing on remix duty for Koschk’s Diwan. Big things still to come from this guy and we always look forward to more. The remix keeps with the deep theme of the original but adds that extra punch to get the floors moving. A nice punchy kick drum leads the way as tight percussions dish out a fine flowing rhythm. The bassline keeps thing on the deeper side with its warm well rounded groove. Pads layer up to fill the sound and create a sublime atmosphere which comes to the fore on the break before breaking down to percussions and FX and then rising once more to take back to the driving groove. Very nice indeed and a definite must have.

MAN ON THE MOON – SENSE (BONZAI PROGRESSIVE)

Bonzai Progressive debutant Man On The Moon delivers the deep and thoughtful Sense which comes with a top notch remix from Manu Riga. The Original Mix is a proverbial rabbit hole of deep progressive grooves that just keeps going deeper and deeper. A solid, punchy kick drum drives the track while surreal synths and pad sounds create an eerie atmosphere. A distant vocal repeats ‘sense’ which mesmerizes throughout the track. A powerful deep rooted bassline comes into play to take us further into the abyss and solidify an already strong progressive groove. The break takes surreal to a whole new level and we find ourselves totally hooked before we get slammed right back into the main track for the duration. Superb stuff that is not to be missed.
