Gai Barone is one artist who is going to be making a huge impact in the music scene this year. The Italian producer and DJ has been creating waves in the industry over the past years. 2017 saw Gai carving out a dark, provocative, increasingly recognizable soundscape with each one of productions and currently stands on the threshold of an electronic dance music breakthrough.
Bonzai chose this moment perfectly to hand over the reins of the yearly progressive mix into the hands of Gai this year! Mixing edition 006 which happens to be the Italian’s first solo-mixed release, it puts his singular take on electronic music – one more complex and meticulous in character – into tack-sharp focus.
“From the top down, everyone’s saying it,This will be the year of Deep. You only have to look at the direction of arena stages, club line-ups, label output, radio playlists, etc to see where that’s coming from. It’s just one of the reasons I’m so thrilled to be bringing this release in the earliest months of the most promising of electronic music years.” – Gai Barone
His own music naturally plays a key role in the threading of both mixes. New cuts ‘Tanita’ and ‘Cantica’ both debuts within the first half. ‘Something Between Us’ and ‘The Bloop’ meanwhile etch waypoints in the second. Interlaced between are Oovation’s synth-warping ‘Solar’, ‘The Passenger’ from Montenegro’s AudioStorm, Yuriy From Russia’s elegiac ‘Black Lagoon’ and the drop-side intensity of ‘Dust of Light’ c/o Mark Found. The release plays out with the epic-in-scope, first time teaming of Solarstone & John 00 Fleming with ‘Hemispheres’

Barone has designed the series to reflect his “Portrait-style” delivery, meaning that each track stands out as an individual piece, different than the rest, but still joins the rest to form a larger whole.
