NEPTUN 505 – LUNAR EP (GREEN MARTIAN)

It’s been a while since we last saw talented producer Marcin Stepien aka Neptun 505 round these parts, but the wait is over as we present another superb slice in the form of the two tracker Lunar EP. Growing up he listened to music from hip-hop to dance. Over time electronic music took his interest so he started to study the roots of this type of music. Artists like Michael Cretu (Enigma), Kraftwerk and Jean-Michel Jarre are the people who had the greatest impact on him. He started to make own music in 1999 but 2008 was a real breakthrough year for him with original and remix releases on labels like Magnetide Records, UDTK Records, and then later on Dirty Stuff Records, Electronic Tree, Mistique Music, Smart Phenomena Records and Passion Fruit Recordings. Aside from his Bonzai Progressive debut with his Zulu EP, Marcin then showed up on Green Martian with a top notch collaboration with E.F.G. and their Followed By Eye back at the start of 2015.

PAUL SAWYER – I KNOW (GREEN MARTIAN)

Winchester, England born Paul Sawyer debuts on Green Martian with this sublime two tracker entitled I Know. Paul is a serious hands on artist who is not afraid to get his hands dirty trying new things and looking for the next melody or harmony. Inspired by his younger brother, one of the original DJ’s on the free rave scene around Hampshire. Paul would later start to learn the art of mixing once the parties had started to move into clubs, developing a serious vinyl habit and embracing the pioneering, cutting edge dance music of the time. As the expansion of the house music movement started to take hold of the early 90´s, Paul´s DJ career blossomed as a valued resident at a flurry of new, enticing clubbing hotspots around the home counties, including the House of Windsor parties, of which his first appearance involved warming up for major influencer and teenage hero Sasha. After several stints in Ibiza he returned to the UK and by the late noughties he was cited one of DJ Mag´s Top 10 Resident DJ’s in the UK and quoted by Mixmag as a DJ to look out for. He soon moved into production and launched his label Krafted, which saw multiple releases with Konneqt, Whartone Records, Sweep the Floor, Suffused Music and Cockpitch Records amongst others. Paul’s new project Soultrak, with long time free-party buddy and fellow DJ Paul Moore is making waves across the underground, while his original productions are gleaning support from industry key players. Great to have him on board here at GM and we hope to see more in the future.
