LONELY SUN & NICOLAS AGUDELO – AURORA STORM (GREEN MARTIAN)

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!

‘Gossip’ delivers a steadily rising progressive vibe as understated kicks and smooth percussions provide the intro. A bubbling bassline sits back and lets cool synths and warm pads take control of the sound. On the break a sweet melodic sequence takes over with the bass along for the ride before we are taken back into the main track with a subtle yet effective build up. Very smooth and epic journey and a must for any box.

DELPHI – MARIANA TRENCH (GREEN MARTIAN)

Delphi debuts on Green Martian with ‘Mariana Trench’ which is a stunning slice of progressive house that comes backed up with two quality remixes.

The Original Mix is a testament to that almost euphoric progressive house sound that captivates so well. The intro boasts a bright arp synth that leads smoothly into a strong kick accompanied by some cool FX work. Subtle hats and percussions build flowing rhythms and out of nowhere a warm bassline fades through taking the track to the next level. Hypnotic high pitched notes become a big focus on the sound and on the break a mesmerising sequence begins. Big sounds are the order of the day here with a stunning drum arrangement, top quality stuff and one to watch for sure.

First up on the remix is none other than 06R aka Hisataka Ogura who is no stranger to Green Martian. His last outing on this imprint came in the form of the wonderful ‘Air 2.0’ which gained massive support from many top jocks. On the remix Hisataka applies his sublime brand of prog house, the intro boasts subtle kicks and stand out percs that build rhythms flawlessly. Cool arp sequences steadily rise with the bassline holding up the low end perfectly. A stuttered vocal adds an uplifting feeling while big synths enhance this feeling further. Superb stuff yet again and a must for those big parties!

Eddie Murray aka Aeonism, is an Irish DJ and producer who recently marked his GM debut with ‘My Soul’. Here he shows his talents yet again in style with a fantastic take on all the qualities of progressive house. The intro sets us off with swirly sea sounds while a rising synth leads us to a cool kick and hat combi. The synths continue to rise with teasing melodies beginning to filter through. The bassline draws you in with a deep drone and is the perfect companion to this evolving sound. Mercy is shown as melodies are unleashed and a simply stunning ride ensues. Get this in your playlist and you will not be disappointed!

STEREO FOR TWO – SHADOW SCIENCE EP (GREEN MARTIAN)

Stereo For Two aka Tim Verhees and Joris Bylemans debut on Green Martian with the stunning ‘Shadow Science EP’ which also comes backed up with three brilliant remixes. Tim and Joris are very well established artists and musicians. They like to blend many genres and are very much into jazz and classical and tend to bring these styles into the modern recording arena. Between them they guys have released multiple tracks across many labels and continue to deliver the goods whatever they turn their hand to.

The Original Mix of ‘Shadow Science’ intros with a classic clipped kick and hat combo with much more percussions soon following suit. A rippling synth sound forms up as the very subtle yet super effective bassline does a wonderful job on the lower end. The break brings with it a very cool vocal sample and some stunning FX work. As the track progresses a hypnotic groove sets in and locks you on for the duration, simply amazing stuff.

Leach is first up on the remix. This artist has seen a massive amount of releases over the years on labels like Neglected Grooves, PurpleCat Digital, Basic Grooves and Mystique Music to name just a few. On the intro a short kick and hat combo leads up to the main groove, here the remix does much justice to the original as hypnotic tones settle in with the bassline and cascading synths take hold. Very good use of the vocal samples which really add to the contemplative mood set from within the sound.

Next up on the remix is Belgian artist Rone White. Rone has seen releases on Neglected Grooves, Melodic Records and Basic Groove. Here he totally transforms the track with a much more pronounced bassline and additional melodies that really beef up the sound beautifully. Nice and tight drum arrangement sit well over the beefed up bass and the melodies are a very cool adaptation on the original. On the break a wall of sound blasts forth as the synths do their thing before slamming right back into the relentless progressive groove, superb stuff.

Dutch DJ, producer and mastering engineer Marc Pollen is our next remix artist, and he puts on quite a show. Marc is another artist from within the work horse community who churns out the qaulity at every turn. He has had releases on the likes of Balkan Connection, Basic Groove, Baroque, Indigo Records and Bos Tech Limited to name just a few. Here he adds his brand of quality to the mix with a top drawer offering. The intro goes straight into a gritty kick and bass workout with soft open hats waiting in the wings. Marc has made the vocal much more legible which makes it stand out even more and adds a deeper texture to the sound. The bassline seems merciless until we get a note change the just sets the track on fire with the help of quality synth work. A definite must for any prog set and sure to get the floors moving!
