Red Bull Elektropedia Presents Bonzai Reworks – Vinyl Release

Reworkings of classic tracks just wouldn’t be the same without an accompanying vinyl release. On this 12″ we’ve selected three sublime cuts to fill out the grooves and deliver the ultimate listening experience. Side A features Jones & Stephenson – The First Rebirth (Charlotte de Witte Remix) which offers a raid on the senses thanks to Charlotte’s contemporary take. Expect sizzling melodies and a driving Techno groove. Side B1 holds Lefto’s remix of Thunderball – Bonzai Channel One which dishes out a pumping tech fuelled vibe full of scathing synths and that iconic vocal we all know and love, one for the big events here. B2 features probably the most unique of all the reworkings. Stuff gives us their Bonzai Tribute Mix which is a sublime mash-up between Blue Alphabet – Cybertrance and Cherrymoon Trax – The House Of House. Mostly done with live instruments, this quintet have certainly captured the essence of those early tracks. A seminal track that personifies Bonzai’s stance in the electronic music world.

Red Bull Electropedia Presents Bonzai Reworks

Belgian online platform Red Bull Elektropedia have – as part of our 25 years celebrations – commissioned a series of special reworks of some of our notable classics. Red Bull Elektropedia have been a major force in documenting Belgian culture and nightlife since 2009. Their output exudes professionalism and the content is always interesting and accurately detailed. We’ve worked with them in the past and when they said they wanted to help us celebrate this year, of course we accepted. They have enlisted the talents of some of Belgium’s finest contemporary music artists to work their magic, and we couldn’t be more happy with the results. The reworks are available on CD, Digital and Vinyl and if you head over to Red Bull Elektropedia’s website you will find excellent mini docus on each artist. On top of that they have also produced an in depth documentary around the Bonzai story. Featuring rare unseen footage of Bonzai studios and the artists that passed through its doors, we also get various testimonies on the good times and tougher times from label founder Christian Fly Pieters and business partner Marnik Braeckevelt as well as contributions from several other key players from the early Bonzai days, artists and fans. The documentary will be aired at special screenings on 14th October 2017 and then general release online shortly after.
