The Bonzai Classics remixes just keep on coming. This time we’ve enlisted the very talented and popular remix trio of Rick Simmonds, Stephen Jones and Liam Melly aka The Space Brothers. The guys get to grips with The Green Martian – Industry and churn out a fitting tribute to a club stomper. The man behind The Green Martian – Laurent Veronnez – gave us this cut back in 2000 on our Tranceportation imprint and the track instantly became a firm favourite with its minimalistic approach and that sizzling, intense build up. It was quickly snapped up by Serious Records and went on to feature in many compilations. Durango 95 provided a memorable remix back in the day that would still stand out in today’s scene. Prior to this Laurent was knocking out track after track and hit after hit as Airwave and many other guises, but The Green Martian project always delivered having already had 8 tracks that rocked clubland. Several other release would follow in the next few years before Laurent put more focus into his main projects. We are delighted with this newest remix, and just so you know, The Green Martian hasn’t gone away.
The Space Brothers was started by Rick and Stephen before Liam joined the group in 2014. Throughout the mid to late nineties the group became synonymous with pumping remixes as well as several anthemic trance cuts including Shine, Forgiven and Heaven Will Come. Their own tracks were given the remix treatment by the likes of Lange, Olmec Heads and Matt Darey and their debut album featured a special mix of all tracks from Paul Oakenfold. They also had mega hits under different aliases including Ascension (Someone), Chakra (Home, I Am), Force Majeure, Klymax, Lustral (Everytime), Oxygen, Sapphire, Simmonds & Jones and The Realm which marked them as legends on the scene. In 2014 Irish producer Liam Melly joined up and their first release as a trio – Forever – was very well received. One year later they put their name to this remix we have today and we’re proud to be able to officially release it on our Bonzai Classics imprint. The remix gets going in true club style with a nice punchy kick drum and rhythmic percussion backdrop before a snare roll takes us to the bass drop which delivers a charging rolling bassline and that infectious gated synth. The track builds and builds before breaking to reveal brighter, wide open synths backed with cool acid lines that weave in and out of the sound. The main break goes into almost complete silence which is broken by a soft rising pad that creates a dreamy atmosphere. But the pleasantries don’t linger too long as we begin an intense climactic build up that ends with a huge wall of noise before the beats take over once more. An epic cut that will still raise the roof at any venue.
