Madrid based artist Jesus Gonzalez aka Jacob Singer makes a welcome return to Green Martian with the two track EP titled Elohim. This one follows his last effort, Urantia over on our flagship Bonzai Progressive imprint. Jacob started out in music playing the guitar and was heavily influenced by rock and metal bands for many years. After he discovered electronic music however, he soon realised that this is where his passion lay. Now a veteran on the progressive scene he has churned out many noteworthy releases on various labels and it’s always great to have him here.

St. Petersburg based producer returns to Green Martian with the superb Digital Soul. This one comes after his debut this time last year (2017) when he delivered the excellent Earth Resonance and no doubt we’ll be in for a real treat now as we were then. Since graduating from music school Fashion Police became interested in electronic music. He has a unique approach to writing his own music and he uses his 10 years of music school experience as his basis. In 2008 he got his first release with Inside Me on 4 Seasons and since then there is no stopping this seriously talented artist. With affections for multiple genres, his work has been supported by a broad spectrum of DJ’s around the world.
Back in 2017 we were treated to a sublime album filled with sonic gems in the form of Narel’s Losing Adequacy. Now in 2018 after much support for the album, we’re delighted to announce six remixes of tracks specially selected to bring maximum impact on the floors. Nick Simmons began to experiment with music and this hobby became a bit more serious in 2010 when his first tracks were released on the Bonzai Progressive imprint Fourty 5. His sound is rooted in oldskool progressive, progressive house, ambient and downtempo and this influence is beautifully re-constructed in his output.
Mexico City native Doriaan shows up on our Green Martian imprint with the superb Rosario. He makes the jump over from Bonzai Progressive to deliver a more melodic flavoured progressive sound. Last time out he gave us the wonderful Perte on BP which gained great support. Doriaan is a self-taught musician, not coming from a musical background he took a 6-month course and learned to play the piano. Trial and error are how he was able to learn the skills he now employs to churn out quality sounds. With several releases now under his belt, this guy is definitely one to watch.
Ottexx debut on Green Martian with the superb Welcome To My Space which is backed up with a solid remix from Blufeld. Ottexx is a collaboration of two talented producers from Minsk, Belarus. Ottexx was created in 2016 and focuses first of all on high-quality sound, aimed at the electronic music scene. These two musicians also have a lot of experience performing as DJs at different clubs in Belarus, which gives them confidence in every performance. With careful preparation their sets are truly explosive. Great to have them on board at Green Martian

Ricardo makes the jump over on our more melodic driven progressive imprint Green Martian with the stunning two track slice titled Lily. With a raft of top notch releases over on Bonzai Progressive, we’re delighted to have him at GM where we know his more polished, harmonious sounds will thrive. We last saw Ricardo alongside his formidable studio partner and friend Gabriel West with their Tonic EP which found itself appearing on many charts and playlists. A versatile artist with a diverse skillset, he certainly knows how to work a track. No doubt we’ll be seeing lots more from this guy both solo and in collaboration, for now though enjoy these two super tracks.
Cypriot artist George Ellinas is back at Green Martian with Hide Away. This is his GM debut after he appeared over on our flagship label Bonzai Porgressive with Illusionize back in 2016. His musical voyage started at a very early age with classical piano lessons and the study of music theory. He then proceeded to study music production at Berklee College of Music in Boston USA, and also one of the major turning points for his music journey was working at the legendary Boston Beat Record Store. As well as being heavily involved in electronic music, George also plays in various bands around the island of Cyprus as a keyboardist. He has been recording music for the last 20 years and has also done arrangement and production work for a number of other artist and also his running his own Record Label Sanille Recordings.

Allan has a unique sound which he moves between genres, always focusing on quality and ensuring maximum impact. Nowadays he mostly puts his energy into deep grooves, jazz and progressive house music. He also produces under many different aliases and has appeared on labels like Dutchie Music, Grouper Recordings and more. Great to have him on board at GM.
Alexey Koptev a.k.a. St. Petersburg based DJ and producer joins Green Martian with the superb Dancing Under The Stars which features three solid melodic progressive cuts. A newcomer to the production scene, Alexey’s passion for electronic music began in the 2000’s when he was 16 years old. His distinctive feature is the creation of an enchanting atmosphere on the dance floor and clockwork melodies wrapped up in a steady tempo. While DJing his musical selections are distinguished by an easy, but at the same time, in-depth atmospheric sound. The desire not to stand in one place, makes him immerse himself in the search for a new dynamic sound, for the redoubling of the modern public with a special variety. He has dabbled with various genres but now Alexx has chosen Deep and Progressive House, as over time his musical preferences have changed from fast rhythms to more moderate ones, with a deep bass line, melodic synths and ambient overflows.
Romanian producer Lucian Dragomir debuts here at Green Martian with the fantastic Oceans Lab which is backed up with the equally fantastic Reflekt. A relative newcomer on the scene, Lucian brings a real fresh sound bursting with raw, dirty sounds that grab your attention. Two very interesting cuts that will definitely turn a few heads.
Estonia based Kristjan Koemets is back on Green Martian with another colourful trip into progressive in the form of his newest slice entitled Slowly Drifting Into The Night EP. It was back in 2015 when we last saw him with his Observers EP. Prior to this he had cuts on Green Martian in 2010 and on Progrez in 2008 with Old Castle then in 2009 with Reflective EP. Remixes also came thick and fast during this period for artists such as Blufeld, Arto Kumanto, Joost Glazenburg, L.A.V.I, D.E.E.P and Zakat Project. Great to see this guy back at the helm and we hope to see more in the future.
