KINDRED SPIRITS – CLOSE UP (GREEN MARTIAN)

Kindred Spirits return to Green Martian with Close Up and comes with a fantastic remix from Jakhira. We last saw the guys a while back with Square 1 EP which saw good support from many quarters.

First up we have the Original Daytime Setting mix which gets right into full swing with a superb kick that punches through beautifully and is joined by cool and rhythmic percussion. On the break we see a sweet melodic piano take centre stage before crashing right back into this powerful mover. The track is driven by those wonderful basses that truly defines the characteristics of this duo as they deliver another top notch progressive house joint.

Jakhira’s Night-Time Setting mix is up next and again we see the quality of production dripping with purely progressive flavours. Nice and punchy clubby kicks are joined by tight percussion patterns that provide a solid rhythmic base. Beautifully sequenced melodies are big feature and sit perfectly with the groovy bassline. The break is a journey in itself as pads and strings combine with a sweet melodic piece before building back into this full on prog house slice. A definite must and not to be missed!

DYRON – BEYOND HORIZON EP (GREEN MARTIAN)

It’s been a while since we last saw Dyron aka Lucas Bika. His last outing ‘Berlin EP’ saw great support and today we have this new four track EP entitled ‘Beyond Horizon’. He has been involved with electronic music since childhood when he started making his first tracks and DJ sets using a PC. He was mainly interested in trance music during that time until 2006 when his thoughts and desires went different ways and he turned away from electronic music for the next three years until his return in 2009, we are glad he made that return as the quality of his productions is top notch.

First up we have ‘The Morning’. Cool progressive vibes get us moving as tight drum arrangements kick us off. Sweeping hypnotic pads will have you locked in from the off as a deep churning bassline deliver a massive punch. The percussions are doing a lot of work here and they provide super smooth rhythm that will have the party heads bobbing. Cool vocal samples are the perfect addition to this sound, a must have track in those early summer sets!

‘Fantasy 1′ intros with a nice tough and punchy kick with a nice release on the end. This is joined with a cool crispy hat and groovy house keys. The bass attacks the low end brilliantly as it reverberates through the sound with authority. In the background the pads hold court beautifully and give off a truly mesmerising vibe. The percussions are well constructed and give a real flowing rhythm as they evolve. On the break those house keys do their thing which gives the track so0 much character. Perfect fodder for the terraces and the floors!

‘Magic Journey’ sets off with an upbeat phat kick and tight percussion arrangement with classic slap drums in prominence. A classy female vocal takes full control of the sound as you find yourself lost in its melody and warmth. Smooth pads and a superbly deep bassline give this track a monster groove that is most definitely not to be missed.

Lastly on this stunning EP we have ‘Beyond Horizon’, the intro bursts into life with a very cool and bright sound. Nice punchy kicks sit over a beautiful swirling house pad and a deep droning bass. The percussions are well arranged with a very prominent cowbell keeping the rhythm flowing. Beautiful melodies waft through the sound as this true progressive house groover gathers momentum. A stunning combination of sounds that will do well in any setting for the summer!

DANI BOSCO – WHEN THE RUN STOPS (GREEN MARTIAN)

Italian DJ and producer Dani Bosco shows up on our Green Martian imprint with the superb ‘When The Run Stops’. This track first seen the light of day at the beginning of this year on Bonzai Elemental. Its original format was smooth downtempo grooves while today we get the full on clubbed up version along with a top notch remix from DJ Shy aka Horizons.

The Club Mix sets off with a real chunky groove as phat kicks creating a pumping rhythm alongside crispy percussions and brilliant sub bass that just sits waiting to pounce. Very much on the tougher side of progressive house the track holds up very well with lots of swirly FX and some fantastic synth play. The break brings back those original melodies which make the transition from chilled out vibes to powerful progressive beats. An amazing turnaround and one that will gain lots of attention no doubt.

Horizons is up next with a superb remix, and what a job he does here. Nice and intense intro as deep pads sweep across an array of FX and subtle percussions which build and build up to a nice and chunky kick before a pulsating offset bass begins to dominate. The bass creates a cool flowing vibe as some fantastic melodies start to take shape, these are further enhance by the unexpected note changes on the bass. The break brings with it a surreal yet blissful atmosphere where you can let loose before slamming right back to this stunning progressive stomper!

REFLECTION SOUL – CONSTELLATION (GREEN MARTIAN)

Russian producer Reflection Soul aka Robert Besmaternykh debuts on Green Martian with the superb two tracker ‘Constellation’. Robert has been around the scene for a while now and his productions always ooze quality. He has seen many releases on various labels and no doubt we will be seeing a lot more from this guy.

First up we have the title track ‘Constellation’ which intros with a very cool filtered sound that fades through and leads up to a full on chunky kick and crisp hat combi. In the background the percussions take shape and create a nice flowing rhythm. The big hitter here is that bassline, it bursts into the sound with a purpose and relentlessly dominates throughout with its infectious groove. Nice melodic sequences squeeze into the track and provide a cool contrast to that bass. This is an epic ride through the deeper side of progressive house and is must for those late night sets.

‘Acoustic’ intros with a rhythmic hat sequence before punching through with a nice phat kick. Cool synths begin to form up before the bass shakes the foundations with its deep, almost growling presence. Melodies start to ease through as the layers build and a superb pad sequence sits perfectly in the sound. The break brings the melodic influences to the fore with a vast array of sounds before getting back to the main track. An awesome slice of prog house that will be a welcome addition in any set.

ONEZ!E – THIS IS DREAM (GREEN MARTIAN)

Canadian DJ and producer Onez!e debuts on Green Martian with his superb ‘This Is Dream’ which is complimented by two superb remixes. He started producing music since early 2012 and has already been signed music to industry standard labels, showcased on radio shows, and played live in clubs across the world. He has discovered a captivating, non-commercial sound, a mixture of Progressive, Techno, and House music which makes for exciting listening that will no doubt appeal to many.

The Original mix intros with a subtle percussive element that intensifies and leads up to a nice punchy kick as a sweet pad forms in the background. The soon comes through and adds a huge depth to the sound which works so well. Sweeping melodies materialise resulting in a fluent smooth groove that hypnotises the mind. The break unleashes a swathe of melody along with a very cool vocal that works to intensify the hypnotic groove. Fantastic debut and one to watch!

Russian producer EmLab returns to GM on remix duty after his stunning ‘Sirenes’ which was well received from all quarters. Here he ramps up the energy as a driving bassline takes full control. Beautifully layered sounds combine well and the drum section adds a flowing rhythm. On the break a myriad of melodies produce a dreamy atmosphere as the sublime spoken vocal gets into your very soul. The track kicks back with a surprising gritty synth line that adds a cool twist to the sound. A definite must for those uplifting progressive sets!

Horizons aka DJ Shy delivers his stunning Horizons Sunset Remix. Smooth intro with layered pads creating an ethereal vibe as the vocal comes through adding a nice touch. A superb melodic arp finds its way into the track as phat kicks and well crafted percussions build up the rhythms. The bass sits perfectly on the lower end and soon becomes a true force within the sound as it performs its magic. On the break the track really takes off as the melodies intensify before slamming right back into a full on uplifting progressive stomper. A must have for any box and an absolute joy to listen to.

BLUFELD – HUDDLESTONE ARCH (GREEN MARTIAN)

Blufeld returns after a short hiatus to deliver another stompingly good prog house cut ‘Huddlestone Arch’ which comes backed up with a raft of quality remixes from some of Green Martians best artists. Although David has been away from Green Martian for a short time he has maintained a constant force in the studio with other projects he works on. His last outing, the fantastic ‘Metrobot City’ was given the remix treatment and was very well received.

First up we get into the Original Mix which intros with a fading in percussion pattern and leads to a nice full and well rounded kick. Before long a lush, deep bass pulsates through the sound and provides a solid platform for the track. Very cool melodic arps begin to form and give off a smooth and groovy vibe. The break delivers an almost chilled out experience as that bass takes the lead and allows subtle melodies to float by before returning to the main track resulting in a real smooth and uplifting journey, great stuff!

Brazilian DJ and producer Mathie DeLois also returns to the Green Martian stable with his stunning remix. Mathie’s previous release ‘Warning EP’ was a popular choice among the prog fraternity and here he continues that vein. A tip of the hat to the original as the track eases in with some cool percs as melodies begin to form. The track gets into full swing as the tight kicks and pulsating bass burst through. The break inspires a hands in the air moment as big bassy synths are let loose alongside those cool melodies. A very nice track indeed that will draw a lot of attention.

Next up on the remix we have another GM artist, Delphi. This guy had a great reaction to his last outing ‘Mariana Trench’ and here we are sure to see this repeated. Nice and chunky kicks get the track moving with a rhythmic percussion section soon following. The kicks alone will move you as they have a certain quality that just shouts DANCE! The bubbly bassline adds to the dance factor and is complimented perfectly by a relentless stuttering effect on the synth that constantly morphs with well tweaked parameters. Expertly crafted drums and subtle melodic arps give a cool distraction as this track just seems to plough on through, a big sound no doubt and one that will feature heavily in many sets for sure.

Melbourne based Narel aka Nick Simmons is the perfect choice for remix duties here. Nick’s diverse skills always seem to apply maximum quality in his works. His last outing was for LCD Recordings with ‘The Machines Were Dreaming’ which performed very well indeed. Here the track intros with a cool clanging type sound that soon leads to a very cool bassline that screams progressive. Phat kicks make a show and are the catalyst to an absolute stomper of a tune. Layer upon layer build up smoothly as each sound comes through and lead to a nice melodic arp the sets the track up beautifully. At the break a full flowing and uplifting experience ensues makes certain that this epic journey will leave a positive mark no doubt!

Rounding off this superb pack we have Blufeld’s Hideaway ‘Chilldown Mix’. David strips away all the stomping beats and leaves a truly amazing and inspiring piece of music. Subtle melodies that tease and tease as they weave cool patterns throughout the sound will leave you begging for more. Extremely downtempo beats are the perfect addition to this arrangement and overall you will be left with a fresh sense of being, it is that powerful!
