DEEPALEXANDER – TIMELOOP (GREEN MARTIAN)
July 31st, 2013
Croatian born DJ and producer deepAlexander aka Sasa Skrobar debuts on Green Martian with a stunning three tracker, “Timeloop”. Sasa began clubbing at 16 and soon after he had the music bug and he started to buy his first records. He landed residencies in various clubs around Croatia and played at outdoor festivals including Exhibition. 2011 saw Sasa produce his own sounds and has released a few tracks on Hand Job Recordings, and with much more to come this guy is one to watch.
“Timeloop” intros with a cool chunky clipped kick and is soon followed by some classic hats setting off a fantastic flowing rhythm. The big focus on this track is the simply wonderful retro sounding synth bass, so basic yet extremely effective as it transports your mind back to the great old days. A rising pad adds contrast to the sound while a cool melodic arp provides a very progressive backdrop, top stuff.
“Drifting” takes a deeper progressive house direction with a superb rolling bassline from the off. Tight kicks and sharp hats build the flow with soft synth stabs taking us to the break where a myriad of sounds come together beautifully. A gritty, edgy feel comes out of this groove and makes this a must for any jock.
“Deep Inside” continues with the deeper house vibe, again we see Sasa’s skills in the arrangement with super charged kicks and crystal clear sharp hats. The bassline is a huge feature on this track, it winds its way through the sound mesmerizing as it goes. On the break those synth chords really get the track moving and we settle into a strong progressive ride, top notch!
