MICHAEL BERKLIN – CITIZENS OF THE EARTH VOL.1 (GREEN MARTIAN)

Hailing out of Cyprus, Michael Berklin aka Michalis Fotiou debuts on Green Martian with the impressive Citizens Of The Earth Vol.1. Michalis found music from a young age and began to teach himself synthesizer where he would discover the magic of creativity. An explorer of all kinds of musical styles he soon settled into electronica having met film composer and sound designer Mario Christophorou who gave him lots of encouragement and guidance. He also takes to the turntables and has entered into many DJ competitions with good results and reviews. Delighted to have this guy on board and we hope to see more in the future.

Citizens Of The Earth Vol.1 intros with a solid, tight groove made up of nice chunky kicks and cool percussions that set the rhythm alight. Smooth, melodic pads begin their rise as ethnic styled voices ring through. A probing deep bass binds the sounds together beautifully unleashing a truly sublime progressive groove. The break provides a contemplative respite as wistful sounds play out before we get thrust back into the main track for the duration. A stunning slice of prog that will definitely hold its place in any set.

Story Of The Descendants sets off with a cool rippling synth and sweeping pad before a phat, chunky kick takes over alongside a deep throbbing bassline. Soft hats accompany a subtle drum arrangement as the focus turns to the melodic side where fleeting arps and enigmatic vocals shine through. The break is filled with these soft, hypnotic sounds and hair raising vocals. That dark sub heavy bass comes through once more and we are led back, deep into progressive territory. Top notch stuff and a must have track.

Since starting to produce in 2007 he used his musical influence to combine various sounds resulting in his own unique style.

ALTEK – SOMEONE (GREEN MARTIAN)

El Paso based Altek makes a welcome return to Green Martian with the wonderful Someone. His last outing, and his debut, Control EP gained a lot of support on the circuit and cropped up in many sets. Heavily influenced by Trance in the early 2000’s, Altek has been on somewhat of a musical journey. Since starting to produce in 2007 he used his musical influence to combine various sounds resulting in his own unique style. Now focusing on deeper, meaningful sounds, we are sure to be seeing much more from this talented artist.

Someone intros with a beautifully bright upbeat vibe that carries on into the main groove delivering an almost euphoric vibe. Nice chunky kicks alongside crispy hats provide a solid rhythmic platform for the track to build up the myriad of melodies. Those melodies converge perfectly and will definitely keep your interest throughout. Cool vocals litter the sound and add the perfect textures for this summery vibe. The break is a wonderful display of uplifting sounds that allow you to dream away before getting thrust back into the main track for the duration. A must have track for sure, not to be missed.

That Feeling opens with a solid, strong kick and shuffling hat combi that is joined by cool FX and ever rising high pitched strings. Cool chords fade through and start to take this warm progressive house vibe off the terrace and onto the beach for a full on dance party. Beautifully constructed melodies make their way into the sound and are enhanced by a perfectly placed vocal that sees out each section. The temperature rises as we head to the break where a short respite is in order before we get right back into this absolute stomper of a tune. A definite big hitter for the summer, this one is gonna do some damage.

Aquarius sets out with a nice smooth vibe complete with a warm low end bass and soft kicks alongside an array of bright percussions. Sweeping pads fill the background as cool plucked strings linger. A real deep groove ensues and gives off a melancholic vibe that hypnotizes beautifully. Purely blissful deep progressive house that will definitely get on playlists all over.

Scales eases into existence with soft pads that cascade beautifully across the sound alongside subtle percussions. Tight drum layers begin to form and the solid deep vibe takes hold. An array of cosmic sounds are littered right throughout the track as a deep droning bass shores up the low end. On the break some cool noisy stabs come through as a haunting melody tries to break through. Super tight arrangement that you will not want to miss out on.

KINDRED SPIRITS – DEMOISELLE (GREEN MARTIAN)

Kindred Spirits’ next Green Martian release, Demoiselle, follows on from the superb Folies d’Antan in February 2015. Kevin Vega is called up for remix duty on this one which will definitely get the house juices flowing.

The Original Mix intros with a cool bright flavour filled with crispy hats and sharp percussions which are soon joined by a nice big chunky kick. Synth arps come through early on and set the scene for a melodic trek into smooth progressive house. The offset bass and accompanying deeper sounds provide the perfect backdrop for the melodies to slide effortlessly through the sound. A wonderfully upbeat sound that will do well in any set, just in time for Summer.

Fresh off the back of his last outing, The Gambler on Progez, Kevin Vega shows up at Green Martian for remix duty on Demoiselle. The remix itself delivers an infectious floor jam filled with super tight drums complete with intricate percussion patterns. On top of this we find a punchy kick that really dominates the sound with its well rounded edges and low end prowess. Rising arps cascade right through the sound as we are locked on to the groove, while on the break we are led deeper into the groove before getting slammed right back into the main track for the duration. A super smooth progressive house journey you will not want to miss.
