Body Shock – Rock This House (Original Release 2002 Bonzai Records Cat No. BR-2002-178)

Rock This House beefed up the Body Shock sound delivering a faster paced, harder vibe than previous. This one kept things simple featuring a solid beat and gritty offset bassline and searing high pitched synths. So simple yet highly effective. The flip side got down and dirty with breaks and acid forming a monster tune that rocked hard.

Rain In The City would be regarded as Body Shock’s seminal cut its powerful groove that drew in a lot of support.

Body Shock – Ghosts In The Church (Original Release 2001 Bonzai Records Cat No. BR-2001-167)

Ghosts In The Church represented the typical Body Shock sound which consisted of trance induced melodies alongside harder edged grooves. The bassline was always the big factor as it drove the tracks on relentlessly and allowed the melodic side to shine. This one got the remix treatment from Marc Et Claude and featured in many compilations.

Body Shock – Full Moon (Original Release 2000 Bonzai Records Cat No. BR-2000-154)

The 2000 trance bomb Full Moon featured as the B-Side of Sleepless but gained its own A-Side release on Bonzai Records UK as it proved quite popular in the UK trance scene, as did many Body Shock tracks. A fast paced chugging bassline was the platform for the track as swirling strings and hypnotic synths took the groove high into the trance realm.

Body Shock – Destination Nexus (Original Release 2003 Bonzai Music Cat No. BM-2003-182)

Destination Nexus delivers a wonderful trek into the harder side of trance with tough beats and growling basses forming up beside gritty synths. This track also marks the end of a great run of tracks with subsequent Best Of EP’s following soon after. On the flip we had The Bishop which stood up firmly as a go to track.

Body Shock – Attack Of The Body-Snatchers (Original Release 2000 Bonzai Records Cat No. BR-2000-160)

Originally released as the A-Side on Body Snatchers – which was a trio of connected tracks including this one, Return Of The Body Snatchers and Invasion Of The Body Snatchers, that gave the listener a fantastic trance induced journey – Attack Of The Body-Snatchers was the catalyst that locked you in for the duration. Driving basses and a solid drum arrangement laid the foundation for the star of the show, the synths. Those synths rose and fell effortlessly and etched their way into your soul, snatching your body. Body Shock started out with Bjorn and Laurent at the helm before Bjorn’s departure in 2001. In 2002 Laurent was joined by Yves Deruyter in all subsequent releases. Laurent Veronnez, Yves Deruyter and Bjorn aka DJ Ghost were responsible for some of the biggest and most memorable cuts coming out of the Bonzai stable under many aliases and groups.
