Roger Martinez – De Machtige Trip (Remixes) [Higher States]

8 min read

Higher States opens the summer season by showcasing new interpretations of Roger Martinez's 'De Machtige Trip'. With a career now spanning well over a decade, Roger's transcendent style has long been a favourite of the world's top DJs. Cid Inc, Eelke Kleijn, John Digweed, Guy J, Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren and Sasha have all been steadfast supporters over the years, and remain as progressive music continues to grow and evolve. Sitting prominently on Roger's resume as one of his most well-received tracks has been 'De Machtige Trip'. Released in 2013 via GEM Records, the production was beloved for its timeless musicality and pristine techno framework, ultimately finding a place in a wide assortment of DJ sets. Now, looking to breathe new life into the track for 2023's summer season, Higher States invites Alex O'Rion and Roger himself to re-imagine the production in their own essence.

Leading the release off is Roger’s 2023 rendition which once again proves his craft must be taken to heart. Rather than burst into a dancefloor whirlwind or electronic symphony, Roger’s update evokes its emotions through slow burn repetition. Dodging expectations and emphasizing its conceptual charm, it paints idyllic scenes of solitude, as hypnagogic arps unveil a semi-conscious dreamland powered by perfectly manicured beats and rebounding rhythms, before the Dutch artist's melodic attitude reveals itself during a second act of colourful synth phrasing and mesmerizing progression.

Making a return to the label with the second and final interpretation of ‘De Machtige Trip’ is Alex O’Rion. Rising out of a successful career as a trance producer, Dutch artist Alex O’Rion took inspiration from the likes of John Digweed, Nick Warren and Sasha, to forge a path into the world of progressive house. Alex’s groovy melodic sound found its footing quickly thereafter, as he notched releases via Nick Warren’s Hope Recordings and Hernan Cattaneo’s Sudbeat Music. Moving forward, 2020 proved to be a breakout year for the Nijkerk resident. On the strength of projects for Replug and The Soundgarden, Alex rose to Beatport’s #3 best-selling progressive house producer, paving the way for releases via Guy J’s Lost and Found and UK behemoth Anjunabeats. Having continued on an upwards trajectory moving forward, Alex now sits comfortably amongst the genre’s elite as he continues to tour the world, delighting crowds with his impeccable taste and exquisite programming skills. Having made his Higher States debut in 2020 with ‘Imagine’, an EP co-produced with Antrim, Alex now makes a welcome return to the label with a groovy take on ‘De Machtige Trip’. While maintaining the uplifting spirit of the original, the Dutch phenom crafts a sweeping sonic experience all his own, a deep hypnotic journey where voluptuous basslines provide the backbone for invigorating melodies and balmy textures to surface from their rhythmic architecture, onwards to a finale of emotive grooves and speaker-buzzing revelry.
