SeamLess Beat and Franz Lehmann join forces to deliver deep sultry progressive grooves on Green Martian with Toward Peace which comes backed with two top notch remixes. UK born DJ and producer SeamLess Beat aka Nick Newman started his music career as DJ playing Happy Hardcore and Drum n Bass in various clubs. In 2013 he started to produce and now he boasts a raft of releases on top labels including many on the mighty JOOF Recordings as well as LuPS Records, Mystique Music and Carousal Records with appearances on compilations for Bonzai Progressive’s Club Traxx Breaks 2 and Green Martian’s Afterhour Trax 12. He also hosts his own radio show, BlueWav Deep on Pulse House Radio where he showcases the finest deep grooves around. Argentinean DJ and producer Franz Lehmann hit the producing bug back in 2013 with his debut track Deathroom on Cubik Records, since then he has released on labels like Balkan Connection, OLD SQL Recordings, Massive Harmony, Mistique Music and BQ Recordings. With a distinct progressive sound these guys have matched up well and no doubt will turn a few heads with this, their first collab.
The Original Mix intros with a surreal other worldly sound that delivers a haunting vibe. Chunky kicks and tight percussions provide a solid rhythm that glides effortlessly along as a deep droning bass cuts its way through the track. Those surreal, plinky pianos and bright blips mesmerize in the strangest way as we are led into a veritable rabbit hole of progressive grooves. A wonderfully constructed slice of prog that will intrigue with its colourful textures you will not want to miss.
Up on remix duty we have Manu Riga with his Harmonies Remix. Manu aka Belgian musician, composer, producer and DJ, Adriaan Baussens is no stranger to these shores with his exhaustive back catalogue of works on Bonzai Progressive. Last time around we saw his growing collab with Matt Holliday gather pace with their second release Submerged Needs which continues to gain support across the board. Lots more coming up from this guy including, a new collab, more radioshows and DJing, so stay tuned for more. On the remix we are treated to a Manu Riga special with lots of tight drums and perfectly placed percussions. A deep droning, pulsing bass fills the track beautifully alongside the melodic synths that drive the groove. Rich voices crop up throughout as the track progresses and add a wonderful character to the sound. Such a brilliantly worked slice of prog here that will definitely not disappoint.
