GMT – VICES & TRANSGRESSIONS EP (GREEN MARTIAN)
June 5th, 2013
GmT aka Gamut debuts on Green Martian with a stunning three track EP entitled “Vices & Transgressions”. Slovenian born Gamut is the product of a very musical family having taken to this art from an early age with a venture in drums and percussion instruments. His teenage years were spent performing with bands and in 2000 he entered into the world of EDM with his first listen to a progressive CD. It wasn’t too long after that he started to DJ and ultimately produce his own sounds, many releases followed on many labels and here we see this diverse talent shine with more already lined up for the future.
First up we have “Sway Shades”, a real nice progressive house stomper that intros with a cool percussion and a monster kick. The bassline powers through with some deep synth vibes pulsating the rhythm. Gamut’s early drum experiences are very evident with an expertly arranged drum section. Funky grooves build up through some cool stabs, a fantastic guitar riff and brilliant vocal samples with an added crowd cheering effect that has a huge impact. Very retro feel on this that is gonna be huge on the club floors!
“Sex On Substance” goes a little deeper into the prog house vibe. The track intros with an array of quality FX and subtle pads before a stunning bassline and kick combi powers the rhythm on. Again we see Gamut expel his amazing drum arrangement skills filled with many different percussion instruments. This groove settles in nicely with the synth work standing out. Erotic vocal samples are accompanied by a fantastic saxophone riff and on the break the groove ramps up a notch. This is a seriously strong track that will be on a lot of playlists for sure.
“Hedonizer” takes us on a much brighter more energetic journey with a strong solid, melodic groove. Very well crafted patterns with the drums taking centre stage and shored up brilliantly with a hypnotic bassline. The break brings the melodies to the fore with fantastic sequences and feel good pads. Another powerful example of quality production.
