Chunky kicks and sharp hats provide the intro as well as some very sleek synth work. The track transforms when that bass comes through, it totally takes over the sound and locks you right into its vibe. Beautifully contrasting sounds work so well together as the track captivates the mind body and soul. Top stuff from the guys.
Velvet Girl aka the legendary Airwave gets to grips on the remix, and what a stomper he has in store. Huge big kick intro with a beautiful rising chord sequence which takes into progressive house utopia. A throbbing, unwinding bass is let loose and gives off an air of funk into the sound, this is coupled with some quality echoing arps and serves to deliver a stunning groove. The structure is built brilliantly as the layers produce a myriad of sounds that take you far away. Aside from that bassline the big hitter is a superb, groovy riff which is a very cool dynamic on the track. Amazing slice from Laurent and a must to be played out and cherished by many.

These sounds blend so well together resulting in a rich tapestry of sounds that would sit well in any set, top class stuff.
The very popular Jimmy Galle steps up for remix duty and delivers a stunning slice of tech fuelled, prog house vibes.

Delphi returns to Green Martian after his well received debut ‘Mariana Trench’ with a stunning energetic workout on the remix.

Throughout the track a wonderful, almost metallic sounding riff gets a lot of attention while on the main break some sweet melodies sit back and tease before being unleashed creating an uplifting vibe. One to watch here and a definite must in any box.
Columbian music production duo Nicolas Agudelo and Lonely Sun mark their Green Martian debut with the fantastic two tracker ‘Aurora Storm’. The guys got together in 2013 and they both brought their own skills to the table. Nicolas Agudelo is one of Colombia’s most promising electronic artists, his diverse, elaborate releases are supported by major DJ’s as well as underground DJ’s all around the world. Lonely Sun aka Daniel Cabrera is an emerging producer from Colombia. Daniel’s love for electronic music started very early in his life while listening to 80s and 90s music, he found he was fascinated by the sounds of the synths and percussions that were proposed at the time. So he studied to become a DJ and also studied electronic music production.
‘Aurora Storm’ is up first and intros with a cool snappy kick and crisp hat combination as a stuttering bass note rolls through. A much richer bassline soon enters the fray as the track settles into a smooth progressive groove. Nice little melodies sit underneath the main sound while lush pads rise over the top. As the sound evolves we are treated to a really cool and mellow break until a grainy, old recording typoe vocal appears builds the track up again to that smooth progressive groove. Top notch stuff!

Very smooth and epic journey and a must for any box.
