SOVVE & BLUFELD – LYING LOW (GREEN MARTIAN)

 

[soundcloud id=’89479480′]

 

Progressive house-trance stalwarts Sovve and Blufeld team up to deliver an outstanding piece of work in “Lying Low”. The track is backed up with an impressive host of quality remixes that does justice to the original concept in many ways. Both these guys are very busy indeed with numerous releases under their belts and a wealth of remixes to boot.

The original mix is a magical affair filled with super sweet melodies and brilliant throbbing bassline, the tune kicks off in true 4 to the floor style with the percs building up to a cool arrangement. Soon the bassline takes over and an amazing synth-voice becomes the focus with those melodies bringing the vibe together.

Orsenite, which is a side project for Blufeld, delivers the first remix in style. Stripping back the original and exposing a deeper shade to the track. The bassline is a lot more subtle and the melodies sweep in and out, again we here the synth-voice dominate, top notch remix.

A firm favourite at the moment is 06R with his remix, his distinctive promelodic style seeps out of this track and this is a perfect example of an ever increasing sub genre. Total transformation on the original with the voice being the centre piece, much more prominent melodies that continue to build up to something quite euphoric, big club favourite for sure.

Now a veteran in the Bonzai stable, Kevin Vega lends his talents on the remix, a more housey affair ensues with a wall of sound approach. Huge big synths collide to build that wall with a chest pounding bassline. Subtle melodies are evident but the big sound takes over on a stunning mix.

Rishi K drops by for a bit of prog goodness, nice and steady rhythm with the voice sweeping by, good chunky basses blend in with superb synth work while a melody plinks on by. The prog vibe continues to rise throughout and the break reveals a myriad of sounds that combine well, top drawer stuff from Rishi and a big sound for any floor.

BLUFELD – THOUGHTSCAPES (GREEN MARTIAN)

 

[soundcloud id=’81034152′]

 

The stunning talent of Blufeld shines through on this his third studio album. Embroiled in emotive, melodic sounds there is a poetic element as the tracks weave out a story to be told.

Kicking off we have a wonderful melodic intro filled with light, breezy sounds which is a perfect way to set us up for the journey ahead.

The title track “Thoughtscapes” is a super sweet ride on the edges of progressive house and trance, upbeat, fresh and feel good vibe radiates through the speakers and directly into your thoughts. Quite chunky bass adds texture and those melodies release the good chemicals in the brain giving that perfect euphoric feeling.

“Delve” would be considered one of the more darker vibes here with its heavier kicks and deep sinister bassline, sweeping gated vox sounds find their way on top of some brilliant synth work creating awesome melodies, superb!

“All My Life” takes on a more solid progressive approach, again we see some tight drum and percussion work with a constant offset bass delivering a steady groove. Throughout the track a surreal pad captures the imagination and totally hooks you into this sound.

“One Little Wish” is a brilliant extension to the previous track, carrying the vibe along with a lot more melody and a bassline that constantly morphs keeping you locked in to the groove. This is a track that you will listen to again and again finding different sounds with each rotation, very very well constructed.

At the midway point we get “Profound” which is a true progressive trance tune with the kicks and crisp percs providing a solid and steady rhythm. Real nice melodies combine with a cool almost oldskool pad section on the break. A track that will grace a lot of boxes for sure.

“The Sky Between Us” is a typically awesome Blufeld track, lots of layers with differing textures are arranged beautifully over a chunky bassline and delivering a solid slice of prog. It has the qualities of a dark edged track with an uplifting feeling, brilliant.

“Viewpoint” is one of those musical moments that captivates the mind, warm, lush sounds swirl around in a melodic carousel. Very subtle intro that soon settles into a solid progressive groove, the many sounds build layer upon layer with a tight drum arrangement cementing the vibe. Real nice flow on this and a firm favourite for sure.

“Told You So” takes a slight different direction in the signature style, progressive breaks veering towards 4/4 with light melodies and a heavy bassline. Another fine moment of thought provoking music hooking you in for the duration.

“Clarity” is a short melodic interlude filled with the melodies we have come to love within this album, simply beautiful.

Finishing this album, but not our journey, is “I’m Found”. Blufeld’s talents allow him to create a wonderfully sublime soundscape that invokes a feeling of realisation through sweet subtle sounds and a quality drum arrangement, a fitting way to leave the album and continue with your own thoughts.

BLUFELD – VIEWPOINT (GREEN MARTIAN)

 

[soundcloud id=’78072259′]

 

Music maestro Blufeld delivers another top quality production on our main label with this latest release which is backed up with some superb remixes.

“Viewpoint” is one of those musical moments that captivates the mind, warm, lush sounds swirl around in a melodic carousel. Very subtle intro that soon settles into a solid progressive groove, the many sounds build layer upon layer with a tight drum arrangement cementing the vibe. Real nice flow on this and a firm favourite for sure.

One of our most popular remixers Kevin Vega steps up to the desk with a more darker, harder edged sound while keeping the focus on the original. Well tuned kicks and percussions reside over some awesome synths where the melodies are almost sinister with a gritty feeling, top stuff!

Blufeld ramps up the energy on the first of two of his own remixes. Blufeld’s Distorted Reality Retake is a lot more upbeat with pulsating rhythms and some wonderful variations on the original melodies which will put this remix into a lot of playlists, big sound!

For his second remix we see Blufeld turn his hand to a more chilled out ambient sound which he does so very well. Beautiful sounds with feel good qualities that are perfect for those lazy days or relaxing evenings where your mind will wander, sublime.

BLUFELD – THOUGHTSCAPE (GREEN MARTIAN)

 

[soundcloud id=’67241619′]

 

Bonzai veteran Blufeld makes a very welcome return to our shores with a stunning progressive house/trance release “Thoughtscape”, backed up with a couple of very impressive remixes this will turn a few heads on the floors for sure.

Blufeld’s last outing on Green Martian was the well received “All My Life EP”, since then he has been a busy producer indeed. With a host of other releases on Bonzai Progressive, Bonzai Trance Progressive, B-Classics, Progrez, Camouflage, Fourty-5, Android and more the status of veteran is well deserved. The following is a quote from Blufeld’s official bio and sums up this very talented producer well: “electronic music is the pulse of life. Evocative of all genres, yet guided by a set of dynamics and instrumentation very much of its own unique identity, it breathes a type of emotion to a degree that can only be reached via the imaginative use of synthesizer and drum.” Wise words!

The original mix is a super sweet ride on the edges of progressive house and trance, upbeat, fresh and feel good vibe radiates through the speakers and directly into your thoughts. Quite chunky bass adds texture and those melodies release the good chemicals in the brain giving that perfect euphoric feeling.

On the remix we have the awesome duo of Manu Riga with their Tripscape Mix, the guys take things to the darker side of progressive house creating a trippy experience, amazing bassline with a melodic sequence that is top notch, beautiful vocal used on the break and then it’s back to a kick-ass groove, brilliant stuff.

Blufeld provides us with a Chilldown mix, all the melodies of the original are packed in her in all their glory with huge sweeping effects making the hairs stand up with goose pimples in support, quite amazing piece of music here!
