DOFAMINE – ZERO (GREEN MARTIAN)

Debut appearance on Green Martian for Dofamine with Zero, which comes backed up with two superb remixes. July 2014 saw Dofamine get a foothold on the scene with Warm on Stripped Digital with subsequent releases on Stripped Recordings and Inmost Records. Well worth keeping any eye on this rising talent.

On the Original Mix you can expect to get a helpful dosing of smooth grooves nicely packaged in a summery vibe. The intro brings a solid rhythmic flow as tight beats do their thing while a side-chained synth creates a warm texture through the sound. A deep bass drone beefs up the groove and takes us straight to the dancefloor for an ass shakin boogie. The track settles into a smooth progressive house groove leaves us wanting more, superb stuff.

One name that keeps cropping up on remix rosters is the veritable Kevin Vega. Known for his tight, professional remixes, we are delighted to see him around the Bonzai HQ once more. His last outing was back in March 2014 with Andromeda and since then he has been in great demand for remix duty. On top of all that, his track Consolidate featured on the chart topping Bonzai & Friends Underground Progressive Collection. The remix here strips down the original and injects that Vega magic which highlights the progressive elements so beautifully. A nice, restrained kick is joined by subtle percussions that make for a steady flowing rhythm. Simple and effective synth melodies start to ease into the sound as the bass bubbles up from below to add a warm touch to the sound. An infectious hook takes over and you find yourself locked into this pure progressive groove. The break zones in on the melodic flavours of the track before we are led right back into full on mode for the duration. Top notch yet again from Kevin.

Green Martian favourites Kindred Spirits hit the remix desk with another fine example of their progressive house brand. May 2014 saw their track Close Up get a great reception from many quarters. Here they bring the remix to life with a very cool percussion led intro that builds up to a nice punchy kick to get the groove on the move. A strong multi-layered bassline comes through as funky keys bring out beautiful textures. This leads up to a sweet piano overlay that is joined by sweeping, rich pads. The break digs deeper into the progressive abyss while keeping a firm grip on those cool house grooves. A definite must have track that will warm up the coldest winter days.

BAZURIK – STREETS (GREEN MARTIAN)

Aktau, Kazakhstan based Bazurik aka Arthur Yessekenov debuts on Green Martian with the fantastic two tracker entitled Streets. The Original Mix intros with a strong punchy kick, crispy sharp hats and a smooth melodic arp that rises and falls to the backdrop of cool synth stabs. The track warms up beautifully as a lush, plucked bassline takes over bringing a wonderful depth to the sound. Swirling pads cascade around in the back and a superb melody gets the goosebumps rising. On the break we are left with those wonderful pads and a subtle guitar sequence. The bass comes back again and leads us into the main groove for the duration resulting in a super smooth progressive groover, top notch stuff.

Aivengo makes his Green Martian debut with this superb remix filled with all the goodness of sweet melodic house music. The intro brings a nice punchy kick with cool percussions filling up the space before a deep and warm bass joins the party alongside sharp high scale piano plinks and plonks. The piano melodies evolve beautifully as deeper chords make an appearance giving off wonderful contrasts and lush textures. The break reveals some very cool and uplifting pad sequences that build up to a brilliant climax, thrusting us back into the main groove. Superb stuff and a track that is definitely not to be missed.

TFC – MY SUPERMAN (GREEN MARTIAN)

TFC is back, this time on our Green Martian imprint with My Superman. His first outing was on Bonzai Progressive with Joey.L back in the summer and gained lots of support.

First up we have the Original Mix of My Superman which intros with a smooth round of percussions that get the rhythmic juices flowing right from the off. A deep resonating sub bass rattles the sound before a tight punchy kick comes through. Rising FX takes us into the first break where a wonderful melodic sequence brightens up the groove with the help of a sumptuous vocal that captivates the mind with its tale of wonder. A euphoric feeling floats over the whole sound in the most beautiful way while retaining a progressive house groove. Top notch stuff that is not to be missed.

Swiss producer Louis Desero returns to Green Martian with an outstanding remix on My Superman. We last saw Louis in July with his Oriental Breeze which enjoyed a great response across the board. Here he intros the remix with a beautifully melodic sequence as a touch of melancholy creeps in through the vocal. Sweeping pads and arps fade away and reveal a brilliant bassline that meanders through the sound perfectly. Nice chunky kicks set the rhythms loose as percussive elements find their way. Stunning melodies come back into the sound with a vengeance as the vocal delivers its sweet nothings. A true progressive vibe lies at the heart of the track and will definitely make this a must have in any set.

Next up we have the Original Mix of Running Away with its big and brash synths that give it a big room appeal. The intro boasts those big synths that set the tone perfectly for the track and they are soon joined by punchy kicks and a deep throbbing bass that just sits at the low end allowing the synths to take the glory. The track offers up a truly awesome melodic display through big synth sequences that will surely have the floors pumping. On the break the synths subside a little to reveal a nice and simple vocal strain that ties the melodies up beautifully. Very cool uplifting sound that will appeal to many and will no doubt gain a lot of attention.

Digital Department serve up the remix for Running Away and do a great job for sure. We last saw Digital Department in June this year with You Put A Spell featuring Cara Leigh, and no doubt this time around we will be treated to more of the same top quality vibes. The intro sets off with a sharp clap and a rising pads that give way to a filtering kick that turns into a superb pounding thump. Those pads continue to formulate a surreal vibe and really dig deep into your mind. Out of the blue the most warmest bass takes over and adds a beautiful quality to the sound. On the break the melodies shine alongside the brilliant vocals and are complimented with a big break beat pattern. This is a monster of a track that will leave you wanting more with every listen, not to be missed.

REFLECTION SOUL – COLOURS (GREEN MARTIAN)

Russian producer Reflection Soul aka Robert Besmaternykh delivers another fine progressive house cut for Green Martian with this two tracker entitled Colours. His last outing April (Dreams) back in the Summer had made a great impact with support coming in from many quarters. Much more to come from this guy and worth keeping an eye on.

Colours intros with a smooth rhythmic drum arrangement as punchy kicks are joined by sharp percussions that really get the track on the move. Offset vocal samples crash into the sound alongside a pulsing pad that just sits perfectly at the back. The big hitter here is that bassline with its deep throbbing grooves that fill the sound beautifully. Melodic synths take over bringing a wonderful house vibe to the track. The break lets loose on the melodies as they converge into wall of sound that is broken by the warm tones on the bass. A very cool driving groove that will get featured on many sets no doubt.

Leak intros with a mish mash of percussions that form up brilliantly into a cool rhythmic flow. Snappy kicks punch through and are joined by a beautiful rising pad that brings subtle melodic flavours along for the ride. The percussions steadily build and culminate in a furious arrangement that binds the track together brilliantly. The bassline sits back and delivers it subtle tones to great effect allowing the brighter elements to dominate. The break unleashes the full wrath of melodies this track has to offer in a euphoric sequence filled with lots of sounds and a hair raising vocal sample. A wonderful display of melodic house that will turn a few heads on the dancefloor.

LONELY SUN & NICOLAS AGUDELO – ROBOTRONICA (GREEN MARTIAN)

Lonely Sun & Nicolas Agudelo deliver their latest cut Robotronica, which is backed by two superb remixes. The guys’ last outing Aurora Storm saw great support at the start of this year, since then they have remixed Nico Parisi’s Napoli By Night among other things as they continue to deliver top quality at every turn.

First up is the Original Mix which intros with a nice punchy kick and a sweeping pad that cascades beautifully through the track. A smooth and subtle bass sits perfectly in the groove allowing those pads to shine. Crispy hats and sharp claps gather pace and give of a cool rhythmic vibe. The break is a beautifully constructed sequence filled with those cascading pads as well as subtle melodic phrases and sweet sounding vox before getting back into the main groove with a very cool arp sequence in tow. Top notch stuff and an absolute delight to listen to, a must have.

The Dub Mix provides a slightly modified arrangement with an emphasis on extended drum patterns and less vox. The same upbeat vibe as the original with just a few subtle changes.

Onez!e steps up for remix duty and delivers an epic take. Onez!e debuted back April this year with This Is Dream and subsequently remix Chris Harris’ What’s Left Of Them with much support on both. Here he beefs up the groove with a fantastic uplifting progressive house workout. A solid percussion led intro paves the way for a big chunky kick that really gets the track on the move. The track progresses with a superb arp that fades in bringing its warm glowing presence into the groove. Cool transitions bring many wonderfully constructed elements to the sound. The droning bass tone is the perfect companion for those arps and comes to prominence on the break where the melodies shine alongside that wistful vox. Just the tonic for those Autumn parties where the Summer blues can be washed over.

July 2014 saw TFC debut on Bonzai with Joey.L with great support coming in, delighted to see him back on remix duty. The intro sets of with a cool bass sequence as melodic arps fade through alongside sweeping vox sounds. Nice chunky kicks join in followed by crispy hats as the rhythms begin to form. A mesmerizing ahh vox takes centre stage here as you find yourself drawn to its lulling nature. The break is a superb collection of strings, pads, FX and more, culminating in a euphoric sequence. Top quality stuff that will be featured in many sets no doubt.

Lastly we have Aquamatica which intros with a very cool bass pulse and rhythmic percussions. A nice punchy kick sets the track on course as the bass begins to transform into a much tougher version. The first break unleashes a fantastic arp filled with warm tones and melodic flavours that transform and filter beautifully. The bass is the big player here as it takes on many facets keeping the groove flowing. On the main break we get a smooth melodic sequence that takes us back to the main track for the duration. Excellent stuff destined to be a big hitter among many.

ONE MAN GROOVE – BROKEN (GREEN MARTIAN)

One Man Groove return to Green Martian with the superb three tracker Broken. Summer 2013 saw his debut with Missing You which gained a lot of support across the board.

First up is Broken with its surreal atmospheric intro comprising a beautifully toned kick alongside some sweeping pads. Steady flowing rhythms are introduced with a cool percussion arrangement that shuffles along nicely. Melodic pads begin to ease their way through taking the track to the next level of prog house. On the break the melodies shine and climax with smooth build up right back into the main groove and taking us along for the ride. Brilliant stuff that is not to be missed.

Star Roads is up next and intros with a chunky kick and complex percussion pattern arrangement that really brings the vibe alive. A deep throbbing bass comes through and brings a techno flavour that bonds beautifully with the drum section. Lots of percussions going off all around giving the track a boost of energy that will light up any floor. The break throws up a curve ball as grainy distorted flutes take over bringing an organic feel to the sound. Top notch stuff yet again from One Man Groove.

Stolen Memories sets off with a nice punchy clipped kick with some cool atmospheric FX in the background. Out of nowhere a superbly deep and resonating bass creeps in to the sound and locks you right into its progressive house grip. The percussions throw up a solid rhythmic groove alongside intermittent keys that are subtly sweet. The break reveals more of these keys before sliding into a cool synth hook that takes us back into the main sound with short build up as the journey continues. Progressive house at its best and a definite must for those longer, intelligent sets.

RISHI K. – BLACK ICE (GREEN MARTIAN)

It’s been almost a year since we last saw Rishi K. over at Green Martian HQ and we are delighted to see he is back with another plunder in his progressive house world. His latest two tracker Black Ice is the long awaited follow up to Inflection Point from November 2013 and we have no doubt this latest offering will be just as stunning.

First up we have the title track Black Ice that sets off with very cool and classic styled punchy kick and hat combo. Smooth housey chord stabs ease their way into the sound alongside a colourful vocal sample. We get right into the track proper after a smooth rising pad transition takes us to the upbeat bassline that dominates the sound so well. The break reveals a smooth piano sequence before a massive kick roll thrusts us back into the main groove for the duration. A hugely impressive slice of prog house that is a definite must have.

Falling awake intros with a cool punchy kick and offset hat combo as various percussions layer up on top. A very cool synth riff comes in early on alongside some vocal FX before we get a taste of the powerful bassline. The bassline will get asses shakin on the floors as it delivers its groovy workout. Subtle piano sequences filter through and marry well with the synth arps which bring a melodic flavour. Top notch stuff from Rishi and a track you will not want to miss.

NAREL – THE VIEW AT 2 AU (GREEN MARTIAN)

Melbourne based Narel aka Nick Simmons returns to Green Martian with this stunning three tracker entitled ‘The View At 2 AU’. Nick is a veteran on the EDM scene with releases on some classic labels and remixing for top artists over many years. Most recently he delivered a solid remix on Blufeld’s ‘Huddlestone Arch’ as well as his own ‘The Machines Were Dreaming’ on LCD Recordings.

First up we have the superb ‘The View At 2 AU’ as it intros with subtle percussions alongside a warm rising pad and deep bass plucks. A monster kick soon takes control and the track is on its way. The grooves build steadily as those pads return as does the fantastic bubbling bass. The bass just oozes summer vibes and beautifully tweaked melodic sequences come through as the track evolves. On the break we see the melodies mature to the backdrop of a cool breaks pattern. The perfect fodder for the terraces this summer and definitely not to be missed.

Deepcry makes his Green Martian remix debut with his superb take on the original of The View At 2 AU. Deepcry has worked with many top artists over the years and has a string of releases on Morphosis Records. Here the remix intros with a nice punchy top heavy kick with a rising pad coming in from the back. The track gets into full swing with a superb driving bass that would have any floor jumping. A wonderfully melodic sequence plays out giving off a euphoric vibe that gets the goose bumps rising. A definite big hitter here that will keep the summer memories alive well into the Autumn and beyond.

‘Terminal Shock’ intros with a slowly fading in pad and subtle percussions. A cool, punchy kick joins in as bass notes begin to form. Nice and laidback progressive house grooves here that lock you in for the duration. The bass becomes much more prominent as its velvety texture lulls you into its groove. Subtle keys give off cool melodies as the FX in the background beautiful textures. After the break the track takes a very cool twist adding a grittier side to the sound. A must have track for the late night parties and will turn heads for sure.
