MAXIM VOZISOV – M31 ANDROMEDA (GREEN MARTIAN)

Maxim Vozisov debuts on Green Martian with M31 Andromeda which comes with a superb remix from Kevin Vega. Maxim is an electronic musician from Yekaterinburg, Russia and the very first piece of music printed on his mind in his early childhood was a track from the French group Space with Magic Fly. As a teenager he had no ideas about dance music, until he listened to U96’s Das Boot, then he discovered rave. He soon found house music in the ever changing world and he became a fan of Daft Punk, Orbital, Air, Underworld, The Chemical Brothers and many more. Sasha became an inspiration for him as he found his own sound and nurtured his own talents. After a period of time he got serious about music and began performing in clubs in Yekaterinburg and Sverdlovsk region. He organized different events and recorded lots of compilations, many of which were broadcasted on various radio stations. In the last few years he turned to producing his own music, he has opened his mind to explore sound and find his own unique style.

The Original Mix carries a solid progressive groove that will sit perfectly in any set. The big hitter here is that pulsating bassline that rises and falls effortlessly with the groove. Around the bass we find a tight drum arrangement complete with chunky kick drums and intricate patterns that set the rhythm loose. Swirling pads create wonderful textured layers and add to the captivating trait that runs throughout. A definite must have no doubt.

Kevin Vega is back on remix duties and once again he delivers the goods. A stalwart on the scene Kevin’s work is highly respected and always appreciated. We recently got treated to his The Crimson King over at Bonzai Progressive and that along with this fantastic effort will ensure that 2017 starts with a bang. Always a pleasure to have this guy’s work drop into the mailbox and we always look forward to more. On the remix here Kevin gets us settled into superb progressive groove with his beautifully crafted sound. Chunky kick drums lead the way before a powerful, probing bassline comes through to take over. Expertly crafted FX and a rhythmic drum sequence ensure maximum impact on the floors while becoming locked on the infectious groove. Lots going on here so no doubt this one will be revisited many times.
