SeamLess Beat and Franz Lehmann join forces to deliver deep sultry progressive grooves on Green Martian with Toward Peace which comes backed with two top notch remixes. UK born DJ and producer SeamLess Beat aka Nick Newman started his music career as DJ playing Happy Hardcore and Drum n Bass in various clubs. In 2013 he started to produce and now he boasts a raft of releases on top labels including many on the mighty JOOF Recordings as well as LuPS Records, Mystique Music and Carousal Records with appearances on compilations for Bonzai Progressive’s Club Traxx Breaks 2 and Green Martian’s Afterhour Trax 12. He also hosts his own radio show, BlueWav Deep on Pulse House Radio where he showcases the finest deep grooves around. Argentinean DJ and producer Franz Lehmann hit the producing bug back in 2013 with his debut track Deathroom on Cubik Records, since then he has released on labels like Balkan Connection, OLD SQL Recordings, Massive Harmony, Mistique Music and BQ Recordings. With a distinct progressive sound these guys have matched up well and no doubt will turn a few heads with this, their first collab.

SEAMLESS BEAT & FRANZ LEHMANN – TOWARD PEACE (GREEN MARTIAN)

With a distinct progressive sound these guys have matched up well and no doubt will turn a few heads with this, their first collab.

The Original Mix intros with a surreal other worldly sound that delivers a haunting vibe. Chunky kicks and tight percussions provide a solid rhythm that glides effortlessly along as a deep droning bass cuts its way through the track. Those surreal, plinky pianos and bright blips mesmerize in the strangest way as we are led into a veritable rabbit hole of progressive grooves. A wonderfully constructed slice of prog that will intrigue with its colourful textures you will not want to miss.

Up on remix duty we have Manu Riga with his Harmonies Remix. Manu aka Belgian musician, composer, producer and DJ, Adriaan Baussens is no stranger to these shores with his exhaustive back catalogue of works on Bonzai Progressive. Last time around we saw his growing collab with Matt Holliday gather pace with their second release Submerged Needs which continues to gain support across the board. Lots more coming up from this guy including, a new collab, more radioshows and DJing, so stay tuned for more. On the remix we are treated to a Manu Riga special with lots of tight drums and perfectly placed percussions. A deep droning, pulsing bass fills the track beautifully alongside the melodic synths that drive the groove. Rich voices crop up throughout as the track progresses and add a wonderful character to the sound. Such a brilliantly worked slice of prog here that will definitely not disappoint.

SWEEN – NEUTRON (GREEN MARTIAN)

Sween returns to Green Martian after quite a long hiatus with the superb Neutron. It was back in 2009 when we last saw this talented artist with the wonderful Sweencity which was backed with Danceity. Sweencity was included in several compilations such as Deep Trance Trax 1 and the very first Afterhour Trax as well as a spot on Bonzai Worx DJ Session 19 compiled by Chantola. A very exciting return that will definitely get a few heads turning for sure.

Neutron intros with a smooth dark tone that is filled with cool punchy kicks and distant sounds. The bassline bubbles up from the depths and brings that dark edge with it which is the dominant force throughout the track. Cool atmospheric sounds fill the spectrum as bright arps bring a melodic flavour. The track drive on with a hypnotic force that keeps the groove in check. A wonderfully diverse sound filled with deep, dark vibes and contrasting bright melodies, superb stuff.

Angels sets off with a cool drum pattern and a nice chunky kick on top. The bass creeps into the sound from out of nowhere and becomes the driving force throughout. Beautifully rich melodies cascade down through synth arps and are joined by sweeping pads that really captivate the mind. A totally mesmerizing experience that will keep you hooked for the duration, a must have.

Absolution intros with a full on punchy kick with shuffling hats and a lush rolling bassline that will get the dancing feet moving right from the off. In the background rich melodic strings float across the sound and deliver an intensity that builds throughout the sound. On the break the strings morph into a pulsating sequence as a melodic arp synth teases us with its imminent prowess. The bass has a huge impact on the sound as it effortlessly plods along with ever changing notes. Such an upbeat and euphoric sound here that will definitely turn a few heads, one to watch.

Never Forget sets off with a driving bassline alongside a nice chunky kick and rhythmic hats. Sweeping pads and strings fade through and bring a sweet melodic flavour as various sound also lend a hand. On the break we get treated to an epic slice of melody building as arps and strings combine to deliver that euphoric feeling. A super smooth solid slice of melodic progressive house that would sit perfectly in any peak time set.

ALTEK – CONTROL EP (GREEN MARTIAN)

Altek debuts on Green Martian with the tantalising Control EP. Hailing from El Paso, Altek has been influenced by lots of different genres which have shaped his sound today. In mid-2000’s he became more involved with electronic music, particularly deep house, progressive house, minimal, techno, and trance. He started DJing in 2006 and was mainly focused on trance but changed direction as he looked more into progressive sounds. Now residing in Austin, TX and thanks to the help from RealMusic Events, Electric Avenue ATX †and Hypersonic Radio, today Altek can showcase his record box at local clubs (Kingdom and Lania) which contain sounds from Cid Inc, Stas Drive, Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren, Guy J, Guy Barone, †Mike Griego, Marcelo Vasami, Andrea Cassino, Anthony Mea, Addex and many more underground house hold names. He started producing back in 2007 when he took piano and music theory lessons which in essence have helped with his understanding of music.† After many years of learning and practicing, he got recognition for his remix on One of Use, One of Them by Lukajieff. Delighted to have him on board and we look forward to more.

First up we have the slinky progressive house grooves of Control. A tight punchy kick intros with cool atmospheric sounds coming through in the background. The track breaks early to reveal a fantastic dancing bassline that will definitely get the floors moving. The bassline melds into the groove as cool vocals blend in alongside subtle melodies. On the main break we get drawn into a superb melodic sequence filled with sweeping pads and lush synths. A real smooth slice of prog here that will not disappoint.

Coven intros with a cool melodic arp as deeper tones go off in the background. A nice and phat kick soon takes over and we begin our trek into a true progressive house groove. Smooth swelling pads rise up alongside a superb bass that meanders along in its slinky groove. Fresh sounding synths bring an air of brightness to the sound and on the break we get a taste of a very cool lead that ties the track together beautifully. Perfect fodder for an early morning session, not to be missed.

Rounding up this fine EP we have Bayside Drive with its classic intro filled with a surreal atmosphere that builds and builds with a blissful flavour. Cool synth arps deliver a subtle melody as the track evolves and takes us deeper into the groove. Sleek percussions dish out a solid flowing rhythmic vibe as we head into the break where we are drawn into the sound even more with a little help from a smooth melodic groove. A top class progressive house experience that will turn a few heads for sure.
