Red Bull Elektropedia presents: Bonzai Records – The Story

This year marks the 25th anniversary of one of Belgium’s most iconic dance labels: Bonzai. The importance this local powerhouse had on ravers and dance floors worldwide was just astonishing. Multiple generations of fans have grown up with these timeless classics that span from trance to progressive, or the sturdier electronic genres. From bringing out the first record to ultimately becoming a global force with around a dozen sub-labels and hundreds of releases to date, Bonzai have engraved themselves in the definitive history of dance music.

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.

25 Years Bonzai CD

The legendary Belgian Bonzai label is 25 years old and is more popular than ever! “Universal Nation” of Push was this year the number one on the greatest switch on Studio Brussels. Bonzai even had his own stage at Tomorrowland. And at this festival, “Universal Nation” was one of the most twisted songs. The Bonzai revival can not be stopped!

Airplay – Arctic Trance (Original Release 1994 Bonzai Records Cat No. BR94044)

The 1994 track Arctic Trance from Airplay aka Jean-Claude Russell and Sven Staes represents the Bonzai sound at that time perfectly. A surreal, mysterious intro leads into distant acid blips before bursting into a full on hard trancer that hypnotises with a superb percussion arrangement and spacey breakdowns. The original vinyl release was backed with the superb Out Of Side with a heavily FX’d DR Martin Luther King Junior delivering his famous I Have A Dream speech while sounds swirled around overhead. After an epic intro we are left a deep and dark techno monster that got the heart racing with a fast paced groove. Just one more snippet of the vast Bonzai empire.
