Serbian DJ and producer Nemanja Petrovic aka Gibbon debuts on Green Martian with ‘Dance Of Nature EP’. Having perfect the art of mixing from a young age, he soon moved into the world of production and secured a few releases before getting hooked up with Bonzai. The prospect of many releases are what’s in store with this guy so keep your eyes and ears peeled.
First up we have ‘Meanders’ which gets going with a nice, full kick and percussion combo and leads us up to a cool, pulsating, rough edged bassline with a mesmerizing pad going off in the background. The pace picks up with the percussions forming a tight and rhythmic arrangement which settles the track nicely for a smooth progressive journey. The break brings forth those mesmerizing pads and are joined by a brilliant vocal sample before jumping right back into the main groove, top quality stuff.
The Dub Mix offers a relentless progressive journey with a rough edged bass and superbly crafted drum arrangement which makes for a rhythmic ride. The break lets loose with a mesmerizing pad which soon makes way for a brilliantly crafted synth sequence that dominates the track. A must for those later sets!
‘Avalanche’ intros with a nice chunky kick with cool and crispy percussions enhancing the rhythm. A short break brings with it a wispy pad before climaxing with a powerful pumping bass which will take over any floor. Stabby synth work comes through and is joined by cool plucky sequences on the break as a deep drone rises from the depths. The track reaches its peak as the sounds combine brilliantly for the duration, a very classy progressive groove indeed.
After a nice fluent intro filled with well rounded kicks and rhythmic percussions ‘Torrent’ unleashes its full potential with a sublime liquefied synth that is delivered with smooth melodies. The bassline coolly matches each note on the synth and creates a stunning groove at which to shake that ass in an unforgiving manner. The break gives full attention to those quality synths as a subtle, sweeping arp adds assistance before rising back into full swing, wonderful track and a big hitter for sure.
‘Spirit Awakening’ rounds off this stunning EP in style. A silky smooth kick led intro eases into some cool and groovy strings with a sweet and melodic arp soon joining the party. A plucky bassline gives the track a nice bounce as we settle in for an nice flowing ride. A myriad of melodies come through in many guises on the break and form the basis of the track as it gives off an uplifting, happy vibe. An eleven minute journey into an upbeat groovy little number!
