FOLLOWING LIGHT – DELL (GREEN MARTIAN)

Following Light makes his full Green Martian debut with the superb two tracker – Dell. Ukranian born Kirill Guk has remained a constant force in the progressive house world since 2010 having released on a vast selection of labels. Inmost Records, Balkan Connection and Abstract Space are just a few of the labels mentioned but gives you an idea of the status this guy holds. His music features heavily in sets across the globe and he has worked with some top artists along the way. We last got a glimpse of his talents on remix duty for Samotarev’s Midnight Pinball as well as an appearance on our Afterhour Trax 18 compilation.

Dell opens with a cool percussion led intro with a smooth warm pad filling the background before making way for punchy kicks and cosmic synths. A deep droning bass tone adds depth to the sound and gives the track its progressive groove. Mesmerizing melodies deliver splashes of colour to the sound and keep you locked on throughout. Top notch stuff, a must have track.

Iincessant gets right into a deep groove from the outset as chunky kicks and a superb hypnotic bassline get the progressive juices flowing. Crispy, shuffling hats provide a steady flowing rhythm to the track as swelling strings and pads bring in rich textures. Throughout the track we are treated to a myriad of melodies that give a brighter touch in contrast to the deeper elements. An excellent slice of melodic progressive house that will be a welcome addition in any collection.

TIM AARON – DISTANCE WAITING (GREEN MARTIAN)

Tim Aaron debuts on Green Martian with the wonderfully lush two tracker – Distance Waiting. Tim aka Aeropolis has been into music from a young age, he started to experiment with sounds and got into trance music before venturing into the progressive side of the tracks. A very much experimental producer, Tim loves to recycle sampled sounds creating his own textured palettes. Great to see him on board and we look forward to much more in the future.

Distance intros with a punchy kick and a tight slapped drum roll in the background. Soft claps and various other percussive elements start to find their way into the track as a warm bass rises up from the depths. The bass soon becomes more prominent in the sound and is joined by a superb sub bass bringing in a harsher sound. Atmospheric synths deliver cool stabs of sound with a melodic progressive edge. The break features a brilliant arp that hypnotizes as it filters off and on before those solid beats return and slam us back onto the floor. A simply stunning slice of progressive house that will do well in any set.

Waiting sets out with a simple punchy kick with subtle percussions hanging off the fringes. Spacey pads fade in and out as the percussions are filtered in alongside a crispy sharp hat. The cool rhythms of the track get an injection of warmth from the subtle synths before a superb rolling bassline takes over. The pads hang in the background beautifully creating a wonderful texture to the sound that blends effortlessly with the groove. The break takes us deeper with the bass fading out leaving behind a brilliantly tweaked synthline before returning to takes us to the climax where we get thrust back into the main sound for the duration. Top notch stuff that is definitely not to be missed.

SWEEN – TRANSPORT (GREEN MARTIAN)

Fabio Andrea Petrini aka Sween makes a welcome return to Green Martian with the superb two tracker entitled – Transport. His last GM outing was back in April 2015 with Neutron which quickly gained a lot of attention.

Transport gets things moving with a pacey tempo filled with a solid kick drum and nice, crispy shuffling hats. Probing basses find their way through the sound and lay down a superb progressive groove. Cool voices float through and are joined by a building synth line that hypnotizes alongside some fantastic rattling percussions. An intensity creeps into the track as rich strings ebb and flow leaving behind a kaleidoscope of colour and wonderfully textured sounds. Excellent stuff here that you will definitely want in your playlist.

Autocoscienza intros with a smooth kick drum that packs a lot of low end giving it an almost laid back feel. Extremely cool percussions fade in and bring a surreal twist to the sound and in the background we feel the bass start to bubble up. A maelstrom of bells creates a chaotic picture that really gets right in under your skin. In a surprising twist we get hit with some brilliant chord stabs that seem to fit right in on the chaos surrounding them. An absolute stomper that will turn a few heads for sure.

JIMMY ROQSTA – COLD BREATH (GREEN MARTIAN)

Estonian DJ and producer Dmitri Lyssenko aka Jimmy Roqsta return to Green Martian to mark his full release debut with the superb Cold Breath. This guys is no stranger to Bonzai shores as he has appeared on various imprints on remix duties including Bonzai Progressive, Bonzai Basiks, AK-Tek Records and Bonzai Back Catalogue. His sound can be melodic, forward moving with a positive vibe and which has already featured on many other labels over the last number of years, labels such as Lost Language, Baroque, Deep Blue Eye, Incepto Music and more. He regularly guests on online radio shows including Pure FM and Proton Radio. Nice to see this guy return and hope to see more in the future.

Cold Breath opens with a wonderful haunting theme as slicing synths start to fade in and take control. A nice array of chunky beats and shuffling hats join in and deliver a solid rhythmic groove with a little help from a superb probing bass that chugs along driving the main body of the track. Those synths really have all the focus though as they cascade up and down the notes with expert filtering bringing them to life. The break brings back that haunting vibe with its droning basses and super cool plucks. Top notch stuff that will definitely do the job on the floors.

Space Donkey intros with a high end kick and fading arp melody that is joined by cool atmospherics that create a spacey, cosmic vibe in the sound. A fantastic pulsating bass starts its journey and dances along the groove with ease as those arps get beefed up to become a big focus. The break descends into a quieter affair with the bass continuing to throb in the background while superb bright synths do their thing. A real nice slice of progressive house with an upbeat vibe that will get the floors moving no doubt.

EXPERIMENTAL FEELINGS – INDIAN TRIP EP (GREEN MARTIAN)

Experimental Feelings aka Spanish DJ and producer Toni Gonzalez gets his full Green Martian release with the superb three tracker – Indian Trip EP. He first showed up in September 2015 on remix duties for Pavlin Petrov featuring Selina Stoane’s Feeling Alive which gained great support, and prior to this he appeared on Green Martian’s Afterhour Trax 17 and Bonzai’s Progressive House 15.

Indian Trip gets right down to business from the off and takes no prisoners with its punchy kicks and tight percussion arrangement. Swirling sounds create a wonderfully atmospheric vibe that drives the groove beautifully before getting some backup from the solid bass line that bubbles up from the depths. The groove is relentless here as we get totally hooked right up to the break where the track digs deep into an Eastern flavour filled with Indian voices and wonderful melodies. Fantastic slice of prog here that will definitely light up any floor.

Forces Of Nature gets the progressive juices flowing with a truly atmospheric vibe filled with airy pads and melodic strings that melt into the sound with ease. A cool synth chord is present throughout and serves as a mesmerising focal point. The bass line trods along with a smooth driving force that shores the track up perfectly and allows the melodic nature of the groove to shine. The break takes us to a more intense arena with a deep vocal and some harsher synths that add a tougher edge to the sound. Top notch stuff yet again from this guy.

Insomnia intros with a complex arrangement of percussions drums and sweeping synth pads that when combined provide a solid groove filled with progressive delights. A punchy, probing bass enters the fray and gets the groove going on a deeper course. A seemingly haphazard affair which alludes to that sense of insomnia where you find yourself torn between sleep and an awakened state. The break almost frees you from this inertia with a subtle yet short lived melody that threatens to cut through the darkness only to be swallowed up and slammed back into the main groove for the duration. The perfect tool for those late night sessions for sure.

Atsunori Murata debuts on Green Martian with the tantalising two tracker Vanishing Point EP. A relative newcomer on the scene this guy has a few releases under his belt on various labels including Fourreal Records, Clinique Recordings and Suffused Music. We’re pleased to have him here at GM and hope to see more in the future.

Vanishing Point delivers a solid progressive workout that packs a lot of energy which is dispatched by a driving bassline and a super tight arrangement.

The bassline sits perfectly on the low end as the tight drum patterns get the rhythms flowing and on the midrange a series of arps and synths dish out their own syncopated grooves. A real prog mover here that will most definitely grab the attention of many jocks and listeners alike.

Freedom And Restraint intros with a cool melodic flavour that has a streak of Balearic vibes running through. The lush tones of the bass notes blend beautifully with the higher end as the mids take us for a ride on the progressive skyway. Tight drums offer up cool rhythms as the layers build and all the while we are being sucked right into this full on progressive groove. The break delves right into melodic territory as the pads and synths converge to leave us with a very uplifting experience that is climaxed beautifully before crashing back into the main track, superb stuff that is not to be missed.

AITRA – FAITH IN SPACE EP (GREEN MARTIAN)

Aitra aka Polish producer Matgorzata Imiotek debuts on Green Martian with the superb Faith In Space EP. He recently showed up at Bonzai Progressive alongside E.F.G. with Splash back in June 2015, but this time around he is flying solo with a much more Balearic, emotional vibe.

Faith In Space intros with a friendly kick and hat combi complete with rhythmic percussions that settle us into a perfect, upbeat dancey groove. Ibiza-esque basses wash over the sound with a warming glow that really lifts the track beautifully while cool pads pulse along the sidechain. The track breaks to reveal a wonderful display of melody that captivates with intricate patterns. The melody fades out and leaves behind a solid grooving progressive house cut that will definitely have the floors bouncing for the remainder of the Summer.

On Give Me A Sign, Aitra enlists the vocal talents of Angel Falls who adds a wonderful mystifying character to the sound that will max out the euphoric receptors in your brain. The track itself boasts a solid groove to get the feet shuffling as a tight drum arrangement leads the way alongside a well crafted rhythmic percussion section. The White Isle gets another nod as blissful melodic guitar riffs float across the sound. The vocal definitely gives the track a huge boost making this an absolute must have cut for the terrace or the club.

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.

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.
