PAUL KARDOS – TRES SONIDOS EP (GREEN MARTIAN)

Hungarian producer Paul Kardos debuts on Green Martian with the wonderful Tres Sonidos EP. Since 2013 Paul has been churning out the quality on OLD SSQL Recordings with a raft of releases focusing in on the Progressive House side of the tracks. This release is no exception as we are treated to some beautifully crafted smooth progressive vibes.

Tres Sonidos En La Vigilancia brings the summer vibe to life with a beautifully structured arrangement filled with ubiquitous sounds upbeat vibes. Right from the off we are lured into its grasp as sweet, subtle melodies float by. Subtle kicks with just the right amount of oomph are joined by rhythmic percussions and a warm bass that fills the sound perfectly. The track moves with grace as we are carried along it its clutches for the duration, brilliant stuff that will not disappoint.

Persian Soul opens with cool distant hats and sweeping pads that bellow up from below and cloak the sound with their richness. A pulsing bass note is joined by much crisper hats as the rhythm gathers pace. After a short, surreal break chunky kicks come in and the track is let loose with its beautiful euphoric flow. The main break throws up a fantastic melodic sequence that oozes a trance-like vibe with those subtle gated synths. A very simple, yet highly effective slice of melodic progressive house that is not to be missed.

Pandemonium intros with a sweet melody that draws on the imagination with ease. A throbbing deep, low end bass comes through as shuffling hats rattle in. Sweeping pads and strings fly through the sound and bring in a euphoric melody. Two minutes in we get a taste of the chunky kicks that drives the groove on perfectly. A gritty bass is introduced and gives the track an edge, but the bright, airy sounds will keep this one firmly in the tripped out section for sure.

MOOSICK – THE CHASE (GREEN MARTIAN)

Iraqi born DJ and producer Moosick aka Mustafa Ismaeel debuts on Green Martian with The Chase. Although born in Baghdad, Mustafa grew up in India and ultimately ended up living in Canada. The experience of being exposed to different cultures has played a huge part in his sound. He started to DJ while at university and played at top clubs around Toronto including Sound Academy and Club 77. He has also graced the decks at the Bacardi NH7 festival in Bangalore and the Garden Of Eden festival in Southern Ontario as well as multiple guest spots across various radio stations. Lots more to come from this guy in 2015, so stay tuned. The Chase comes packed with three top notch remixes.

The Original Mix intros with a superb kickdrum that packs a nice punch on the low end and some cool rhythmic drums to get the floor moving. A deep, probing bassline comes through and takes over with its powerful groove and is soon joined by cool pads that sweep across sound. Sustained chords drive the hypnotic edge of the track as the shuffling hats keep the rhythm flowing. On the break those chords come to life with sharp stabs that split the low frequencies in two. A top notch cut that will be a welcome addition in many sets.

The first of three remixes is Jekyll’s Metastasis Remix which intros with a cool elemental flow as rattling chimes are met with blowing winds and light rain. In the background a warm pad begins its rise alongside a distant heart beat. A nice big punchy kick comes out of nowhere with crisp hats in tow and we soon find ourselves on the cusp of an epic ride. Sharp, bright melodic keys dish out a cool lead as a siren winds up and takes us deep into the groove with the addition of a driving bassline. On the break the melodies break free in various guises and deliver a sublime sequence before crashing right back into the main track for the duration. A wonderfully rich progressive journey you will not want to miss.

Onez!e returns to remix duty on Green Martian after a short hiatus. We last saw this talented artist back in November 2014 with his remix on Lonely Sun & Nicolas Agudelo’s Robotronica which turned a few heads and gained great support. Here he takes the remix on a fantastic ride filled with wonderful melodies and a driving relentless bassline that never lets up. An intensity develops in the track as those background pads and winding synths rise and rise bringing the track to its highest level before we drop into the break where the bass remains king. A deep progressive monster that will shake up a lot of floors.

Video Life debuts on Green Martian with a fantastic remix that will fast become a go to track for sure. On the intro we get a soft start as muted kicks are joined by a cascading percussion and shuffling hats. The softness disappears as a superb offset bass ploughs through and dominates the sound. The bass transforms after a short break and delivers a powerful, driving groove that is matched beautifully with strong chords and a tight drum arrangement. A definite go to track that will keep the party rocking.

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.

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. 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.

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.
