UK based DJ and producer Edwin Van Cleef debuts on Green Martian with the stunning three tracker Choral EP. Hailed as an amazing talent by reputed dance music magazine MixMag, Edwin brings his lush, cosmic house grooves to the masses. His first release Never Be Alone At Night was well received all over and gained airplay on the mighty BBC Radio 1. Delighted to have him on board and we are excited for more in the future.
Choral intros with a smooth arp that pans across the speakers creating a spacious vibe. Nice chunky kicks soon join as a tight drum arrangement comes through bringing a cool flowing rhythm. Sweeping voices cascade all around the groove as a warm bass synth adds a great depth to the multi layered textures. We settle into a wonderful house groove with floating melodies and stunning FX. On the break a beautifully constructed melodic sequence takes over before we get slammed back into this solid mover for the duration. A superb debut from Edwin and one that will definitely get the floors buzzing.
Next up we have Believe which sets off with a subtle kick distant arp that carves out a cool melodic phrase. Crispy hats bring a rhythmic flow as sweeping voices span the spectrum. The bassline really sets the track alight with its acidic flavour and marries beautifully with the brighter elements. The break digs deeper as a warm low end bass makes its mark and is complimented with an awesome array of synth notes that takes us back into the main groove. Smooth and hypnotic cosmic vibes that will turn a few heads no doubt.
Give You Love takes us on a trek into straight up pumping prog house grooves. The intro lulls us in with its subtle mix of punchy kicks and shuffling hats before a monster low end bass drone creeps in and hooks you right into its solid groove. An absolutely stunning vocal runs throughout the track and brings that pure house feeling. On the break a cacophony of synth arps create a blistering sequence of melodies that blend perfectly alongside the vocal. A real mover here that has got peak time written all over it.
