Delphi debuts on Green Martian with ‘Mariana Trench’ which is a stunning slice of progressive house that comes backed up with two quality remixes.
The Original Mix is a testament to that almost euphoric progressive house sound that captivates so well. The intro boasts a bright arp synth that leads smoothly into a strong kick accompanied by some cool FX work. Subtle hats and percussions build flowing rhythms and out of nowhere a warm bassline fades through taking the track to the next level. Hypnotic high pitched notes become a big focus on the sound and on the break a mesmerising sequence begins. Big sounds are the order of the day here with a stunning drum arrangement, top quality stuff and one to watch for sure.
First up on the remix is none other than 06R aka Hisataka Ogura who is no stranger to Green Martian. His last outing on this imprint came in the form of the wonderful ‘Air 2.0’ which gained massive support from many top jocks. On the remix Hisataka applies his sublime brand of prog house, the intro boasts subtle kicks and stand out percs that build rhythms flawlessly. Cool arp sequences steadily rise with the bassline holding up the low end perfectly. A stuttered vocal adds an uplifting feeling while big synths enhance this feeling further. Superb stuff yet again and a must for those big parties!
Eddie Murray aka Aeonism, is an Irish DJ and producer who recently marked his GM debut with ‘My Soul’. Here he shows his talents yet again in style with a fantastic take on all the qualities of progressive house. The intro sets us off with swirly sea sounds while a rising synth leads us to a cool kick and hat combi. The synths continue to rise with teasing melodies beginning to filter through. The bassline draws you in with a deep drone and is the perfect companion to this evolving sound. Mercy is shown as melodies are unleashed and a simply stunning ride ensues. Get this in your playlist and you will not be disappointed!

The ever impressive Blufeld returns with a follow up to his 2009 prog trancer “Metrobot”. This sequel entitled “Metrobot City” comes with two superb remixes and is sure to be a hit just like his 2009 track. Currently Blufeld is busy with remixes and original material with the possibility of a few collabs also, so watch this space!
The Original Mix intros with deep rising synths and subtle percussions, this leads up to a chunky kick which gets the groove flowing. Throughout the track the kicks transform into a type of mini breaks which adds a lot of character to the sound. Melodies play a big part here also with many variations combing beautifully and becoming prominent on the break. After the break the track gains a lot more momentum as the vibe intensifies, quality stuff!
First up on remix duties is an emphatic duo who are no strangers to the Bonzai stable. Castra & Sovve serve up a real summery treat on their remix. The guys have both featured many times across many of Bonzai’s different labels and both guys have also worked with Blufeld in the past. The remix takes on a much more upbeat vibe, the classic kick and hat intro blends nicely into a full on pumping track when the bass comes through. The delightful melodies soon follow and you really do get a sense of summer from the sound. On the break the melodies are king and these build up brilliantly to a perfect climax before settling back into a smooth blissed out ride.
Tokyo based producer 06R is next up on remix. Hisataka is fresh from his last release which was “Air 2.0” on Green Martian and he always delivers the goods with his own brand of quality. Here his remix takes the breaks route with a very intense mixture of sounds. From the off a super tight breaks arrangement takes hold with many more layers being added throughout. The melodic sequences are top notch and blend so well with the tougher side of the breaks. A must have for those later evening terrace parties.
Tokyo based producer Hisataka Ogura aka 06R returns to Green Martian with a true progressive stomper and a follow up to the original “Air” from 2012 which featured on Paul Oakenfold’s Flouressence Essential Mix in July 2012. “Air 2.0” comes with four remixes, two of which are from outstanding artists.
The Original Mix intros with a real summer vibe, cool breaks and a rich vocal sample with a melody of guitar sounds lead us up to a deep droning bassline. The breaks build anticipation and when the four/four kicks come through the track explodes into a smooth and powerful terrace tune. The break produces a wealth of melodies and will get you right into the spirit of the moment. Loads to listen for on this with its myriad of sounds and a track that is sure to get a lot of attention, the perfect summer groove!
Blufeld is first up on the remix, this guy is churning out quality stuff on a regular basis. Not long after his third studio album and plentiful remixes, we see him apply his awesome style to this stunner. Utilising the original vocal for the super smooth intro before the tight kicks take over. Slightly tougher edge here with a gritty, punchy bassline thundering through the sound. On the break the track delivers a raw, organic sequence before getting back to the groove where a superb melody comes through giving stark contrast, awesome stuff yet again from Blufeld.
Melbourne based Narel aka Nick Simmons is fresh off the back of his last release on LCD Recordings “The Machines Where Dreaming” with his Warm Air Remix. A much deeper vibe is evident here as the bassline seems to dominate, and what a bassline it is, it winds its way through the groove effortlessly mesmerizing your mind. This is coupled with stunning arps and very subtle melodies which light up the track, another great summer party tune fit for any gig.
The 4 On The Floor Mix is the original without the breaks on the intro for those DJ friendly moments.
The Breaks mix is one of those tracks that would be THE perfect soundtrack to a setting sun anywhere in the world. A feeling of euphoria sweeps over you as the wall of sound cascades over your body bringing a complete sense of being at one wherever you may be at that time, quite brilliant!

The original mix gets us straight into that deep sound kicking off with cool sweeping pads building up to a huge thumping kick with familiar sounding housey chords, a chunky, gritty bassline sneaks up and grabs hold of you and settles into a driving rhythm while the pads continue to mesmerize. On the break we are treated to some superb funky instruments that get us ready for more phat grooving.

Tokyo based producer Hisataka Ogura aka 06R delivers another fine example of his self styled genre “Promelodic”.
Fresh from his last outing on Green Martian with “Air” which was chosen by world renowned DJ Paul Oakenfold on his Flouressence Essential Mix in July 2012, we now have a cracking two track release with quality progressive house/trance and beautiful melodic sequences.
“Obsidian Eyes” opens with hats, shakers and a sweet melody which builds into a cool rhythm with a thud on the kicks and great bassline. On the break we are treated to a warm piano melody with surreal pads and arps. An absolute epic ten minute ride in the world of 06R’s promelodic grooves.
“Gaze In Deep” leads more towards a pure progressive trance groove. Tight drums with awesome rising and falling pads and a killer bassline, on the break things quieten down and a sweet melody prevails until the perfect build up kicks the groove straight in again.
Two epic tunes that will intrigue and hook a lot of people.

Meanwhile those “wheels of steel freaks” deliver more rhythmical extra’s than You ever absorbed before, and this without the loss or forgetting the warmness and originallity that electronic music can express.
They are known for building more than just a regular party, every night is another story, a souvenir , a sound and loop collage of the finest. Some DJ’s fear them, cause of their provocative “mind blasting” spinning. Others love them cause of their original approxiative way of serving music to a dancing crowd. Sometimes with a slice of self made samples or film-text-anecdotes, sometimes with crazy sounds or test-records, the sky has no limits.
Or better, Mothers… lock up Your daughters…The Beatblenderz are among us
