Citizen 42 aka Andy Tau and Philthy Chit aka Phil Taylor & Chitra Kumar join forces to give us “Curious Mind” backed up with a couple of quality mixes. The guys have an already impressive resume within the Bonzai stable and are continuing to show their talent with tracks like this. Andy Tau is no stranger to the scene with a slew of releases under various guises and he continues to show his talent with support all over the world. Phil and Chitra got together in 2007 and have been mixing and producing ever since, they are regular DJ’s and have played alongside the cream of the crop. They have hosted many parties with the likes of M.I.K.E, Tucandeo and Andy Tau gracing the decks.
First up is the original mix, a wonderful progressive vibe is kicked off with a kick and arp combination that builds and builds with a chugging bassline up to a real solid groove. Crisp percussions and a well crafted melodic sequence will get the floors moving, amazing!
Melbourne based Narel aka Nick Simmons is up next on the remix. Nick is a veteran on the Bonzai scene with releases on some of the classic labels and remixing for top artists. Now we see him return with a stunning take on the original track here. Trancey breaks get us moving and soon the melodies build up with epic pads and arps, the bassline creeps up and morphs its way through the track with the filters doing a great job creating classic acid sounds, pure quality.
Fresh from their latest release “Sunrise Over Ganymede”, Tom Conrad & Andre Bonsor take to the mixing desk once again. Progressive trance at its best! Slowly building its way to a true stomper with a tight kick and crisp hats, the bassline teases and teases until suddenly it breaks out to its full head bobbing glory, what a bassline it is! Subtle melodies make their way through the track and you find yourself totally immersed in the groove with this. Perfect.
2013 started and we invited one of our Portuguese Monster DJ’s to record one of our Club Cult’s. Lucio Monteiro. This guy played in the most mythical clubs in the last 30 years. Some of them are among the best clubs in the world, for example, D-Edge, Paradise or even in Lux, among others….Lucio Monteiro gave us a DJ Set fully provided with groove and deep harmonies. With no more description…. Just listen to this living legend!
Established Spanish DJ/Producer Alex Roque debuts on Bonzai Progressive with a stunning tech house slice backed up with awesome remixes.
The original kicks things off in this fine pack and brings with it the flavours of tech, house and a kickin rhythm, memerizing vocal riffs dominate the break and keep you hooked.
Regular remixers and dynamic duo Mindgamers step up with a jaw dropping funk driven monster, bouncing grooves and a fantastic bassline on this will make for aural pleasure everywhere!
The Citizen 42 Remix adds in the original vocals on the break which adds an added punch to proceedings, and then finishes the release with a Dub Remix of Deep Speechless, grooving tech house vibes with throbbing basslines and some very nice synth work.
Excellent debut release which is sure to gain lots of support.

Launched end 1994 under the name Bonzai Trance Progressive. The name was bit more accurate back in those days. Since then BTP has evolved into BP which is more than just a progressive trance label. Since late 2k9 we decided to distance ourselves from the trance scene since todays trance sound doesn’t really fit out vision anymore. Today the label is not afraid to take a leap into multiple directions, with a touch of electro, minimal, house and any other style - without forgetting the main focus is to deliver a quality progressive sound.
DJs PHILTHY CHIT aka Phil Taylor and Chitra Kumar are two people whose sole aim in dance music is to make people realise that music matters. They pride themselves on being clubbers before DJs and it is this perspective on dance music which keeps them rooted to what it is people want to hear when they see them play. Their passion for creating sets with vibrant, energetic and emotive dance music is unique amongst todays up and coming artists.
Moving away from the minimal scene which has for so long confined dance music, they look to bring back the ecstasy into house music through their performances. With their influences spanning a wide range; deep into trance and progressive house of an ERIC PRYDZ nature, to the raw techno influences of people such as SLAM, their unique sound embodies everything that dance music should do. Their ability to bring together euphoric, thought provoking melodies and chunky driving bass-lines through seamless progressive mixing using loops and effects imaginatively, keep the crowd engaged at every level.
Through their own hard work they have created one of Manchester’s finest electronic nights with a zealous following. People travel from both ends of the country each month just to be a part of the special clubbing community which they have created in AGENDA. Using this as a platform to take their message to the dance hungry folk of Manchester they have gained an underground reputation for their ability to mix at a professional level and play sets the likes of which they can confidently say cannot be heard anywhere else. The atmosphere they create for clubbers is one of unity and completeness, something they were proud to share with the likes of DJ HARRI, the founder of Glasgow’s legendary underground night Sub Culture @the (infamous) Sub Club, when he played with them for Agenda’s 1st birthday last November.
This year will see Philthy Chit grow from strength to strength, with top artists from labels such as Bedrock and Anjuna Beats all waiting to play at AGENDA and take on their unique sound. They represent artists who are to be distinguished solely by their exceptional natural talent and the musical principles they hold rather than hype or fashion. To think that they have achieved so much yet they have only been DJing for over 18 months speaks volumes about their passion and ability to perform.
