Bonzai All Stars shake off the lockdown blues to deliver their latest nu rave classic – Poncho Girl, on Bonzai Classics, which comes backed up with three top-notch remixes. Christian Pieters aka DJ Fly and Laurent Veronnez are the creative minds behind this BAS production. Poncho Girl serves up a quintessential nu rave classic groove with solid, pounding beats, hypnotic notes and cool vocals. The track teases us with tension and energy, winding us up, ready for the drop where we can let go and absorb the sound. The perfect fodder for the arena or big club venues, not to be missed.
Poncho Girl is given the remix treatment from a trio of legendary artists (actually there are six artists involved overall with decades and decades of experience). With the nu rave classic sound gathering momentum, we call on the old guard to bring their wealth of knowledge to the studio and bring the classic sound into the new era.
Up first, Santini & Quatretemps are on the remix. These guys have been around for quite a while now, contributing heavily to the Bonzai sound over the years, and here, they do not disappoint. The guys go straight for the jugular with a huge synth driven groove, leaning on hair-raising climaxes which will deliver maximum impact on the floors.
DJ Ghost, who is a Bonzai stalwart having been part of the family for decades, is next up on remix duties where he keeps the energy levels in the red. The original vocal is used alongside a more chugging bassline and punchier kicks, the perfect set builder no doubt.
Finishing up the release, we have fantastic remix from a trio of old rave bastards, namely CJ Bolland, Steve Cop and Dany Van Der Rieten with the O.R.B. Remix. Founded in 2019, O.R.B.'s mission is to revive the old sound with a modern twist, and they have succeeded with every release and remix they churn out. Here, they've brought the darker elements to the fore as heavy hitting beats are joined by mesmerizing risers, scathing arps and a huge drop that will destroy the arenas this Summer and beyond.
