ALEX PHILIPP – PARALLEL CROSSPOINT (GREEN MARTIAN)

Russian producer Alex Philipp debuts on our Green Martian imprint with the sublime three tracker Parallel Crosspoint. Alex loves blending grungy atmospheres from the nineties with psychedelic sounds from the sixties, all wrapped up in techno flavours. He has seen a very impressive list of releases on various labels since 2013 and we have no doubt we will be seeing much more from this outstanding talent.

Parallel Crosspoint is up first with its glitchy organic vibes. The intro eases in with a soft pad alongside a nice punchy kick as various percussions get the rhythm flowing. Blippy FX and raw analogue sounds provide wonderful textures as pulsing bass drives the track forward. A multitude of FX draws lots of focus here and the expertly crafted arrangement keeps the vibe groove intact. Sublime slice of deep techy progressive house that will be a welcome addition in many sets.

Steady movement sets of with a smooth uplifting pad as blippy FX fill the spectrum. A superb bright arp weaves in and out as the filters tear out harder edged segments. Subtle kicks and a flowing rhythmic structure round off the intro as the track crashes into the main groove with a fantastic acid styled bassline. The break offers up cool chords that give stark contrasts to the sound resulting in a strong hypnotic groove. Superb stuff and not to be missed.

Tired Of News sets off with a crashing FX that leads to a grungy bass that resonates through the speakers menacingly. Big phat kicks join in as the percussions begin to form up to the backdrop of rolling, melodic arps and subtle chords. Intensity builds leading up to the break where a smooth melodic sequence plays out before easing back to the main groove for the duration. Top notch progressive and a must for any late night set.

REFLECTION SOUL – APRIL (DREAMS) (GREEN MARTIAN)

Russian producer Reflection Soul aka Robert Besmaternykh returns to Green Martian with April (Dreams) which comes in two flavours. His last appearance was on his debut with Constellation which saw good support across the board and we have no doubt this stunner will follow suit.

First up we have the Original Mix that intros with a cool Balearic flavour as smooth kicks are joined by an atmospheric vibe and a captivating pad sitting at the back. Lush basses begin to filter through and take the groove up a notch as we get lost in this stunning cut. Tight arrangements provide a solid rhythmic feel as the bass leaves its plucky nature and becomes a warm platform for the groove. On the break we are treated to a beautiful display of melodies in the shape of smooth pianos and strings which bring stark contrasts. Wonderful stuff that will be a welcome addition on the terraces.

The Progressive Mix ups the tempo as it fades in slowly before a punchy kick takes over and is soon joined by a throbbing bass that dominates throughout. The percussions give off a solid rhythmic vibe and keeps the groove on course. The first break reveals a gritty sub bass and gives the first hints of melody as a striking piano arp begins its rise. On the main break the piano comes into full force as the melodies become prominent, an epic sequence is crafted perfectly before we are thrust right back into the main sound. Top notch yet again from this great talent.

His remixes and productions are widely supported by some of the biggest names in the scene and his ridiculous work ethic ensures that his tracks will continue to fill the sets of the world’s biggest progressive DJs.

First up we have Range Park with its smooth progressive flowing vibe. Floating synths bring that progressive house vibe to life as chunky kicks and rhythmic percussions provide a solid beat. A deep, throbbing offset bass envelopes the sound and takes it a little deeper as contrasting melodic flavours filter through. Very cool and dancey cut here which is not to be missed.

Despina gets into full progressive house mode with a stunningly mesmerizing synth that captivates throughout the track. Tight drums keep the groove moving as a fantastic bassline takes control. Melancholic melodies flow as a myriad of arps and synths weave together to provide a surreal atmosphere. Nice, deep and hypnotic progressive grooves fit for any party, not to be missed.

Swiss producer Louis Desero returns to Green Martian with Oriental Breeze comprising five stunning deep progressive house tracks. Louis was last seen at Green Martian with his very well received Masquerade EP so you can expect to hear more top quality tunes this time around.

First up we have Oriental Breeze with its beautiful and mesmerizing vocal led intro alongside lush vibrato synth chords. A deep almost growling bass commands authority soon after and the track settles into its intoxicating rhythm with the help of a tight drum arrangement. Dry arps fill the background and as the note changes come the hairs on your arm are raised. A truly heads down and move to the groove track that will keep floors going all out.

Desert Storm sets the scene with a wonderfully melodic vocal alongside some fading pads. A twisting bassline ensues as punchy kicks and minimal percussions take the sound on its journey through the progressive house sphere. A cool array of FX come out of nowhere and add smooth textures to the sound. Beautifully layered strings and various instruments are the perfect addition with the help of more from that stunning vocal on the break. The track takes a slight turn as big stabby synths take hold making this a definite must have.

Next up is The Rush with its tough gritty offset bass and floaty kicks accompanied by expertly crafted percussion patterns. Contrasting melodies sweep by as the strings and pads come into play and bring a dynamic edge. These sounds marry well and we are left with a sublime and epic trek into the progressive world which we do not want to leave. In another twist a simply stunning piece of piano play comes in alongside a plucked instrument giving off a world music vibe. Breathtaking stuff.

Tribalistic drums provide the intro to Artificial Sleep and soon after a nice and well rounded kick joins in. Short and sharp offset basses will get the feet moving for sure as wistful pads flow through the sound creating a magical atmospheric vibe. Louis showcases his musical skills with a beautiful piano sequence that fits into the groove perfectly. The break offers up sweet arps and strings before a winding sub bass takes over and brings the track back with a bang. Wonderfully layered slice of prog with varying sounds that will provide the perfect backdrop to a sunset party on the terrace.

Scirocco is quite simply stunning, a delightful listening experience for any occasion. The intro boasts Mediterranean styled guitars that will captivate as each string is plucked. A distinctive electric guitar etches out a warm melody as downtempo drums begin to fill the space. The big hitter on this track and the part that will have you locked in is the stunning piano arp that effortlessly glides up and down the keys. Amazing stuff that is not to be missed.

ONE MAN GROOVE – MISSING YOU (GREEN MARTIAN)

One Man Groove aka Ezra De Reus debuts on Green Martian with Missing You. Ezra began DJing around 1989-90 and was mainly playing Hardcore, this soon led to Techno and Trance and ultimately to Progressive vibes. In 2001 he temporarily stopped DJing and started producing with his first releases coming out on No Bounds Records. A great music lover, we are delighted to have this great talent on board.

Missing You gives off a smooth progressive house vibe as the intro gets going with a chunky kick and rhythmic percussions that takes us into the main sound with ease. A cool bubbly bassline ensues and has the power to move as it pulsates through the sound. Sweeping gated synths etch out some cool melodic sequences as pads rise and fall in the background. Throughout the track bright notes swoop down and give a dynamic feel to the sound. The break gets up close with those gated pads before slamming us right back into it for the duration. Top notch stuff on this debut and a must for any box.

Deep Groove does exactly what it says, the intro gets into the groove with a punchy kick alongside a deep droning bass and sharp hats backed up with tightly arranged percussions. A wonderful pad rises and brings a melodic vibe to the sound. The track breaks into a trancey plucked synth riff bringing a euphoric edge which climaxes in a full on prog monster. Superb stuff that is definitely not to be missed.

DULUTH – TRIBUTE (GREEN MARTIAN)

Italian DJ and producer Duluth aka Marco Trovato makes his debut on Green Martian with the superb Tribute. Marco got into music at a young age and at just 16 he began to DJ at local radio stations where he soon became noticed and was offered many gigs in local clubs. He was playing Acid House and Rap in 1990 and soon his friends were encouraging him to get into the production side of things. Marco has released top rated tracks like Icarus on Mistique Music , Origin and Cremisi on Darkpload Deep and Beggar on Iboga Records. Now with Bonzai we are sure there is much more to come in 2014.

The Original Mix is up first and takes us into a smooth deep progressive house journey. The intro boasts a nicely arranged percussion section with a warm synth forging a melancholic groove to the backdrop of a mystical speech by the late great Nelson Mandela. Smooth flowing rhythms give off a laidback groove which is shored up by a dominating deep rooted bass. Superb stuff and a definite must have.

On remix duty we have another of Marco’s guises, the Mark Found remix turns the heat up to a simmer as tougher edged kicks get the track flowing. Tight percussion patterns provide a solid rhythmic groove here and the bass reverberates beautifully through the sound. That wonderful Mandela speech is reprised here and adds a truly inspirational tone to the sound. A much deeper affair in the remix and will no doubt appeal to many.

Arseniy has been DJing since 2005 and has graced the decks at many top venues across Russia. In 2009 he started producing under his Digital Department guise and has since seen releases on labels like Mystique Music, Incepto Music, Balkan Connection and more. Canadian singer-songwriter-musician and composer Cara is well renowned for her vocal skills within the progressive house and trance sphere. Her vocals hold a melancholic edge which fits very well with electronica and she also records some rock and indie.

First up we have the Original Mix which intros with a nice big 80’s inspired breakbeat featuring big snares a chunky kick and sharp hats, this well crafted drum arrangement holds true throughout and brings a lot of character to the sound. Plucky hard edged basses build a strong platform for the track as the vocals begin to peek through. A darker, deeper bass drone comes into play and gives it a big room feel and works so well alongside much brighter arps with subtle melodic twists. Cara’s vocal tells the story beautifully and you find yourself captivated by her voice which makes this a definite must for any party this summer!

Blufeld steps up to the remix plate with a wonderful progressive house cut that will move the floors no doubt. We last saw the inspirational Blufeld earlier this year with his ‘Huddlestone Arch’ single that performed nicely on the circuit. Since then David has been very busy indeed with other projects which we hope to see very soon. Here he utilises his massive skills and ramps up the grooves with a powerful 4/4 cut. A smooth subtle intro leads us gently into a nice chunky kick and bass combo, the bass reverberates through the sound beautifully as the rhythms come to life with the help of tight percussion and drum arrangements. Cool melodic arps fill the sound and come to prominence on the break alongside samples of Cara’s brilliant vocal. Top notch yet again from Blufeld, a must have!

The kicks soon get a nice thump attached as the track gathers pace with strings sweeping through the sound and the synth becoming more intense. The track settles into a solid groove and is garnished with subtle, flowing melodic arps. These are matched perfectly to the vocal which has been give a wonderful makeover in the FX department. Nice and solid, hypnotic vibes here and will no doubt turn a few heads.

JULIEN NOLAN – CROSSING LINES EP (GREEN MARTIAN)

Highly acclaimed as DJ and Producer, Julien Nolan debuts on our Green Martian imprint with the wonderful two tracker ‘Crossing Lines EP’. Julien has always been following his own vision of electronic music. He started off DJing and throwing parties at the age of 15 in Nice, South of France. This led him to hold a residency at Nikki Beach, St Trropez for 2 years. Eventually he got into producing and his first release led to a broader recognition of his skills, and releases on several other labels like Red Session Records, OM Records and Ultra soon followed.

First up we get into a smooth progressive house flow with ‘Crossing Lines’ as a cool arp sweeps through the intro and the kicks thrash out a dancing beat. A driving bassline engulfs the track as it leads the main focus of the sound with super tight percussions, particularly some big and brash toms, keeping the rhythm flowing. The break reveals more of that constant arp as the bass creeps back in to the back drop of a very cool tweaked vocal sample. The track powers back into full swing after the break leaving us with the sweet taste of progressive house goodness, top notch!

‘Fargo’ sets off with a very smooth synth line that steadily builds as melodies are constructed beautifully. We get thrust right into the vibe as a phat kick delivers a solid platform alongside a superb downbeat snare. A short break unveils a fantastic piano riff that will have the house heads bouncing. A super groovy bassline is the perfect companion for that piano riff and on the break the two are joined effortlessly to create one hell of an infectious melody. Great stuff from Julien that is most definitely not to be missed.

DYRON – BEYOND HORIZON EP (GREEN MARTIAN)

It’s been a while since we last saw Dyron aka Lucas Bika. His last outing ‘Berlin EP’ saw great support and today we have this new four track EP entitled ‘Beyond Horizon’. He has been involved with electronic music since childhood when he started making his first tracks and DJ sets using a PC. He was mainly interested in trance music during that time until 2006 when his thoughts and desires went different ways and he turned away from electronic music for the next three years until his return in 2009, we are glad he made that return as the quality of his productions is top notch.

First up we have ‘The Morning’. Cool progressive vibes get us moving as tight drum arrangements kick us off. Sweeping hypnotic pads will have you locked in from the off as a deep churning bassline deliver a massive punch. The percussions are doing a lot of work here and they provide super smooth rhythm that will have the party heads bobbing. Cool vocal samples are the perfect addition to this sound, a must have track in those early summer sets!

‘Fantasy 1′ intros with a nice tough and punchy kick with a nice release on the end. This is joined with a cool crispy hat and groovy house keys. The bass attacks the low end brilliantly as it reverberates through the sound with authority. In the background the pads hold court beautifully and give off a truly mesmerising vibe. The percussions are well constructed and give a real flowing rhythm as they evolve. On the break those house keys do their thing which gives the track so0 much character. Perfect fodder for the terraces and the floors!

‘Magic Journey’ sets off with an upbeat phat kick and tight percussion arrangement with classic slap drums in prominence. A classy female vocal takes full control of the sound as you find yourself lost in its melody and warmth. Smooth pads and a superbly deep bassline give this track a monster groove that is most definitely not to be missed.

Lastly on this stunning EP we have ‘Beyond Horizon’, the intro bursts into life with a very cool and bright sound. Nice punchy kicks sit over a beautiful swirling house pad and a deep droning bass. The percussions are well arranged with a very prominent cowbell keeping the rhythm flowing. Beautiful melodies waft through the sound as this true progressive house groover gathers momentum. A stunning combination of sounds that will do well in any setting for the summer!
