Cherry Pheromone debuts on Bonzai Progressive with the tantalising progressive grooves of Tibetan Nights which also comes with a sublime remix from Yuriy From Russia. What a debut this one is, Cherry Pheromone digs deep into the progressive abyss on the Original Mix. The intro draws us in with deep lush basses and a tight drum arrangement followed by mesmeric pipes that give the track lots of texture and depth.

His DJ sets are woven together with original edits, creating a unique atmosphere that has caught the ears of many.

Cologne based DJ and producer Nepou debuts on Green Martian with the fantastic Regentanz EP. His music is characterized by many stylistic features of diverse genres including progressive house among others. The musical sphere ranges from dreamy, uplifting and playful melodies to mystic, melancholic and trippy sounds. The common components of all his tracks are his stylistic synth sounds, a deep atmosphere with the intention to send his listeners on a journey. Nepou started playing piano at age 8 and had lessons for 9 years. Since then, music has always played a very important role in his life. Finally, he got in contact with the production of electronic music for the first time in 2009. Shortly afterwards, he began to produce music himself with an Akai MPK 49 and Ableton Live. From this point on, Nepou’s style was subject to a constant change until it became what it is today. Since the beginning of 2017 he has seen several releases on various labels, this guy is only getting started, much more to come in the future for sure.

DJ Ghost heads up our next special celebratory 25 years remix, and he gets the job done with a stomping re-imagining of DJ Looney Tunes’ Workstation. DJ Looney Tune is the brainchild of top Belgian artist Ramses De Craene, who is also know for several other projects that fell under the Bonzai/Lightning umbrella such as Da Tune, Freeze, Hard Beatz, M.W.F., R.A.M.S.E.S. and Tazmanian. He has also worked in several groups, notably Black Widow, Bomb Trexx, Hard Beatz, Mental Refreshment, Oddworld (with Laurent Veronnez), Phrenetic System, Repulsive 2 (with Stefan Melis), The Bomb Squad , The Sync (with Mike Dierickx) and Zenith where he contributed heavily to the early Bonzai sound. Under his DJ Looney Tune guise he was responsible for many top hits in Europe and across the World, Beatbox on Bonzai Records, Jumpin’ & Pumpin’ on Bonzai Jumps and Boom On The Moon on Axma among others. It was these tracks that catapulted his presence on the scene and when Workstation (which was originally a B-Side on Jumpin’ & Pumpin’) hit the sound systems things took off even bigger. The tracks was synonymous with peak time moments in clubs where it brought the crowd higher and higher with its trancey techno style. Several remixes where commissioned soon after with the likes of M.I.K.E. doing the business with his magic touch. As it’s our 25th year we thought a contemporary take on this classic was prudent and, thanks to the mighty DJ Ghost, the results are superb.

Multi talented Belgian artist Manu Riga is back with more of his beautifully crafted offerings in the form of Trying Harder EP. He enlists the superb vocal talents of John M for this one and once again the results are outstanding. Manu Riga is fast becoming a leader in utilising strong vocalists in the progressive arena. His past endeavours have been greatly recognised, adding an extra spice to progressive house music with his army of fans dubbing him The Master Of Voices. His dynamic sound is ever changing and he adapts beautifully to each vocal artist he works with. He never fails to impress and we’ve no doubt there will be much more coming out of Manu Riga studios in the future. French singer John M aka John Morillion dishes out a sublime vocal on this one. He spent his childhood years living between France, UK and USA where he took in the different cultures which have influenced his style. His travel experiences culminated with the 2012 album Love It All which was followed in 2014 with his fan backed Born To Meet You.
