Romanian born Alex Twin debuts on Green Martian with the superb two tracker titled Senin. From a young age he has made the wheels of steel his vocation in life which has taken him to exotic locations around the world. A hard-working DJ, he was resident at Cala Bassa, Elephant and Cafe Mambo before settling in UAE with residencies at top venues in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and then on to Sardinia and Monaco. A producer with a growing reputation, his EPs have recently been supported by Ibiza DJs Amine Edge, Iban Mendoza and many others. Alex Twin continues to do all the right things in his growing DJ and production career and it’s great to have him on board.
Alex’s unique progressive style manifests brilliantly on this release. Senin is up first with its deep, tribal groove working the floor beautifully. Tight beats and shuffling hi hats lead the way as a deep, lush bassline saunters along the low end. Hypnotic pads etch onto the brain as cool melodies add colour to the groove. Subtle 303 tones weave through the sound making this an intriguing cut that will not disappoint.
Prelude intros with a fresh drum arrangement complete with nice punchy kicks and bright crispy hi hats layered with rhythmic, tribal drums. The beat is infectious as it locks you in for the duration. As the layers build the track becomes mesmeric and sublime thanks to fading in pads which generate an air of tension with an emotive and enlightening climax. The musical elements take us to another planet, deep into space while the drums keep us rooted to the floor. Such a beautiful combination that will be a welcome addition in any late-night set.
