REFLECTION SOUL – COLOURS (GREEN MARTIAN)

Russian producer Reflection Soul aka Robert Besmaternykh delivers another fine progressive house cut for Green Martian with this two tracker entitled Colours. His last outing April (Dreams) back in the Summer had made a great impact with support coming in from many quarters. Much more to come from this guy and worth keeping an eye on.

Colours intros with a smooth rhythmic drum arrangement as punchy kicks are joined by sharp percussions that really get the track on the move. Offset vocal samples crash into the sound alongside a pulsing pad that just sits perfectly at the back. The big hitter here is that bassline with its deep throbbing grooves that fill the sound beautifully. Melodic synths take over bringing a wonderful house vibe to the track. The break lets loose on the melodies as they converge into wall of sound that is broken by the warm tones on the bass. A very cool driving groove that will get featured on many sets no doubt.

Leak intros with a mish mash of percussions that form up brilliantly into a cool rhythmic flow. Snappy kicks punch through and are joined by a beautiful rising pad that brings subtle melodic flavours along for the ride. The percussions steadily build and culminate in a furious arrangement that binds the track together brilliantly. The bassline sits back and delivers it subtle tones to great effect allowing the brighter elements to dominate. The break unleashes the full wrath of melodies this track has to offer in a euphoric sequence filled with lots of sounds and a hair raising vocal sample. A wonderful display of melodic house that will turn a few heads on the dancefloor.

LONELY SUN & NICOLAS AGUDELO – ROBOTRONICA (GREEN MARTIAN)

Lonely Sun & Nicolas Agudelo deliver their latest cut Robotronica, which is backed by two superb remixes. The guys’ last outing Aurora Storm saw great support at the start of this year, since then they have remixed Nico Parisi’s Napoli By Night among other things as they continue to deliver top quality at every turn.

First up is the Original Mix which intros with a nice punchy kick and a sweeping pad that cascades beautifully through the track. A smooth and subtle bass sits perfectly in the groove allowing those pads to shine. Crispy hats and sharp claps gather pace and give of a cool rhythmic vibe. The break is a beautifully constructed sequence filled with those cascading pads as well as subtle melodic phrases and sweet sounding vox before getting back into the main groove with a very cool arp sequence in tow. Top notch stuff and an absolute delight to listen to, a must have.

The Dub Mix provides a slightly modified arrangement with an emphasis on extended drum patterns and less vox. The same upbeat vibe as the original with just a few subtle changes.

Onez!e steps up for remix duty and delivers an epic take. Onez!e debuted back April this year with This Is Dream and subsequently remix Chris Harris’ What’s Left Of Them with much support on both. Here he beefs up the groove with a fantastic uplifting progressive house workout. A solid percussion led intro paves the way for a big chunky kick that really gets the track on the move. The track progresses with a superb arp that fades in bringing its warm glowing presence into the groove. Cool transitions bring many wonderfully constructed elements to the sound. The droning bass tone is the perfect companion for those arps and comes to prominence on the break where the melodies shine alongside that wistful vox. Just the tonic for those Autumn parties where the Summer blues can be washed over.

July 2014 saw TFC debut on Bonzai with Joey.L with great support coming in, delighted to see him back on remix duty. The intro sets of with a cool bass sequence as melodic arps fade through alongside sweeping vox sounds. Nice chunky kicks join in followed by crispy hats as the rhythms begin to form. A mesmerizing ahh vox takes centre stage here as you find yourself drawn to its lulling nature. The break is a superb collection of strings, pads, FX and more, culminating in a euphoric sequence. Top quality stuff that will be featured in many sets no doubt.

Lastly we have Aquamatica which intros with a very cool bass pulse and rhythmic percussions. A nice punchy kick sets the track on course as the bass begins to transform into a much tougher version. The first break unleashes a fantastic arp filled with warm tones and melodic flavours that transform and filter beautifully. The bass is the big player here as it takes on many facets keeping the groove flowing. On the main break we get a smooth melodic sequence that takes us back to the main track for the duration. Excellent stuff destined to be a big hitter among many.

ONE MAN GROOVE – BROKEN (GREEN MARTIAN)

One Man Groove return to Green Martian with the superb three tracker Broken. Summer 2013 saw his debut with Missing You which gained a lot of support across the board.

First up is Broken with its surreal atmospheric intro comprising a beautifully toned kick alongside some sweeping pads. Steady flowing rhythms are introduced with a cool percussion arrangement that shuffles along nicely. Melodic pads begin to ease their way through taking the track to the next level of prog house. On the break the melodies shine and climax with smooth build up right back into the main groove and taking us along for the ride. Brilliant stuff that is not to be missed.

Star Roads is up next and intros with a chunky kick and complex percussion pattern arrangement that really brings the vibe alive. A deep throbbing bass comes through and brings a techno flavour that bonds beautifully with the drum section. Lots of percussions going off all around giving the track a boost of energy that will light up any floor. The break throws up a curve ball as grainy distorted flutes take over bringing an organic feel to the sound. Top notch stuff yet again from One Man Groove.

Stolen Memories sets off with a nice punchy clipped kick with some cool atmospheric FX in the background. Out of nowhere a superbly deep and resonating bass creeps in to the sound and locks you right into its progressive house grip. The percussions throw up a solid rhythmic groove alongside intermittent keys that are subtly sweet. The break reveals more of these keys before sliding into a cool synth hook that takes us back into the main sound with short build up as the journey continues. Progressive house at its best and a definite must for those longer, intelligent sets.

RISHI K. – BLACK ICE (GREEN MARTIAN)

It’s been almost a year since we last saw Rishi K. over at Green Martian HQ and we are delighted to see he is back with another plunder in his progressive house world. His latest two tracker Black Ice is the long awaited follow up to Inflection Point from November 2013 and we have no doubt this latest offering will be just as stunning.

First up we have the title track Black Ice that sets off with very cool and classic styled punchy kick and hat combo. Smooth housey chord stabs ease their way into the sound alongside a colourful vocal sample. We get right into the track proper after a smooth rising pad transition takes us to the upbeat bassline that dominates the sound so well. The break reveals a smooth piano sequence before a massive kick roll thrusts us back into the main groove for the duration. A hugely impressive slice of prog house that is a definite must have.

Falling awake intros with a cool punchy kick and offset hat combo as various percussions layer up on top. A very cool synth riff comes in early on alongside some vocal FX before we get a taste of the powerful bassline. The bassline will get asses shakin on the floors as it delivers its groovy workout. Subtle piano sequences filter through and marry well with the synth arps which bring a melodic flavour. Top notch stuff from Rishi and a track you will not want to miss.

NAREL – THE VIEW AT 2 AU (GREEN MARTIAN)

Melbourne based Narel aka Nick Simmons returns to Green Martian with this stunning three tracker entitled ‘The View At 2 AU’. Nick is a veteran on the EDM scene with releases on some classic labels and remixing for top artists over many years. Most recently he delivered a solid remix on Blufeld’s ‘Huddlestone Arch’ as well as his own ‘The Machines Were Dreaming’ on LCD Recordings.

First up we have the superb ‘The View At 2 AU’ as it intros with subtle percussions alongside a warm rising pad and deep bass plucks. A monster kick soon takes control and the track is on its way. The grooves build steadily as those pads return as does the fantastic bubbling bass. The bass just oozes summer vibes and beautifully tweaked melodic sequences come through as the track evolves. On the break we see the melodies mature to the backdrop of a cool breaks pattern. The perfect fodder for the terraces this summer and definitely not to be missed.

Deepcry makes his Green Martian remix debut with his superb take on the original of The View At 2 AU. Deepcry has worked with many top artists over the years and has a string of releases on Morphosis Records. Here the remix intros with a nice punchy top heavy kick with a rising pad coming in from the back. The track gets into full swing with a superb driving bass that would have any floor jumping. A wonderfully melodic sequence plays out giving off a euphoric vibe that gets the goose bumps rising. A definite big hitter here that will keep the summer memories alive well into the Autumn and beyond.

‘Terminal Shock’ intros with a slowly fading in pad and subtle percussions. A cool, punchy kick joins in as bass notes begin to form. Nice and laidback progressive house grooves here that lock you in for the duration. The bass becomes much more prominent as its velvety texture lulls you into its groove. Subtle keys give off cool melodies as the FX in the background beautiful textures. After the break the track takes a very cool twist adding a grittier side to the sound. A must have track for the late night parties and will turn heads for sure.

BLUFELD – THRELKELD (GREEN MARTIAN)

Bonzai veteran Blufeld returns to Green Martian with his stunning two tracker Threlkeld. As ever we are in for a real treat, just like we had on his last outing back in March this year when Huddlestone Arch was released gaining lots of support. With lots of things in the pipeline we are sure to be hearing a lot more from this guy so watch this space.

First up is the title track Threlkeld with its smooth drum led intro with dreamy pads fading in from behind beautifully. The kicks evolve brilliantly into a nice and punchy hit as the bassline begins to drive the track forward and giving that purely progressive house feeling to the sound. The track has a nice organic feel to it and is contrasted perfectly with sweet melodic flavours coming off the synths and pads. Top notch stuff yet again from Blufeld , not to be missed.

The Middle Of Nowhere intros with snappy percs which lead up to a deep resonating bass and backed up with punchy kicks. A wonderful Jarre-esque synth can be heard in the background which provides a solid platform for the construction of an expertly crafted arrangement of sounds. The bass does a great job of holding up the grooves while a multitude of melodies weave intricate sequences. Highly infectious grooves that will leave you wanting more.

EMLAB – CARNATIC EP (GREEN MARTIAN)

Russian producer EmLab delivers his next Green Martian outing with the two tracker Carnatic EP. We last saw him with his debut track Sirenes and more recently on remix duties for Onz!e’s This Is Dream.

First up we have the title track Carnatic with its nice punchy kick led intro with subtle percussive elements in the background. Cool rising FX take us into a bass arp with hair raising note changes as melodies sweep across the sound. The break unleashes a beautifully serene setting as wispy pads ebb and flow. A wonderfully rich plucked melody captivates as it leads us back into that infectious bassline. Top quality stuff yet again that will have you hooked throughout.

Lip Service sets off with a cool low end kick that gets you right in the gut as percussions ease their way into the sound. A short break brings with it a smooth droning bass that meanders through the groove as sharp synth hits rise and fall. A nice steady groove is born and takes us to the break where a slightly darker tone is adopted. Deep bass synths are contrasted with brighter pads resulting in a melancholic flavour. Superb FX bring lots of different textures before getting back to the main track to continue our journey through this wonderfully hypnotic slice of progressive bliss.

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.
