WHEN THINGS GO WRONG – BLUFELD REMIX

To keep the 25 years celebrations we’ve commissioned another series of remixes of some of our memorable classic cuts. In 1996 we launched the Bonzai Classics label and delivered the top tunes of the day on vinyl, CD and later on digital platforms. The success of the label was outstanding and this was due to the forward thinking, in-depth knowledge of the electronic music scene from within the Bonzai family. Over the last number of years we’ve been busy filling up the Bonzai Classics digital catalogue, it’s now possible to download hundreds of your favourite Bonzai retro gems via Beatport. Keep your eyes peeled for more in the run up to 18th November 2017 at Waagnatie where our year long party comes to a climax.

WHEN THINGS GO WRONG – BLUFELD REMIX

To keep the 25 years celebrations we’ve commissioned another series of remixes of some of our memorable classic cuts. In 1996 we launched the Bonzai Classics label and delivered the top tunes of the day on vinyl, CD and later on digital platforms. The success of the label was outstanding and this was due to the forward thinking, in-depth knowledge of the electronic music scene from within the Bonzai family. Over the last number of years we’ve been busy filling up the Bonzai Classics digital catalogue, it’s now possible to download hundreds of your favourite Bonzai retro gems via Beatport. Keep your eyes peeled for more in the run up to 18th November 2017 at Waagnatie where our year long party comes to a climax. To kick start this new series we’ve enlisted the supreme talents of Blufeld, a very much revered Bonzai artist for almost a decade, who will be utilising his remixing skills on Airwave’s When Things Go Wrong. With an ever evolving sound, Blufeld is the perfect match up for this one as the original contains beautiful melodic parts for him to play around with. There can be no doubt that Airwave is a hugely influential figure in the progressive and trance scenes. For over 20 years he has consistently provided us with anthemic tracks filled with raw emotion and drive. Released in 2003 this explosive melodic trancer rose to prominence in a very short space of time. Such a simplistic structure that seems to unleash a wave of emotion with every listen. If there was ever a defining moment in emotional, melodic trance, then the original is right up there. On the remix Blufeld has done the track justice, bringing the sound in to the modern era in a deeper progressive style. The intro comes at us with mesmerizing synth which is followed by a solid chugging bass and tight beat construction that stays the course for the duration. The beauty of this track lies in the raw proggy groove that draws you in as the layers build. Blufeld creates a tension the builds effortlessly and climaxing with that infectious melody we know and love. A simply stunning contemporary take on a classic that will give the floors a good time.

Airwave’s 2005 album Trilogique was a defining moment for the status he held within the scene, already regarded with legendary status due to his total commitment to his sound, here he catapulted his profile further reaching a greater audience all over the world. Already heralded as a great, this album solidified that sentiment in concrete. A three part journey filled with all sorts of hidden gems that both surprised and astounded.

Airwave – Trilogique – Progressive Edition

This edition definitely delivers a slightly more tech orientated style as can be heard in Progressive Aggressive.
