An artist on an a rapidly rising upwards trajectory, Fairchild is an artist with a strong reputation. Finding his work supported by the the DJ elite, Pete Tong, Jeremy Olander and Jody Wisternoff are three of many to showcase the US producer's name. Indeed, it is on October 2017's "Anjunadeep 09" compilation, co-mixed by Wisternoff himself, that Fairchild sees his track "The Light in You" featured. A portfolio that includes releases for Arkade, NU Ideals and Motorik, now sees a debut remix for Particles. Taking on Mondkrater, the Fairchild remix wraps "Limb" in a shaker-fuelled percussive casing that grips the listener with a head-nodding groove and deep kick. Making full use of original melodic elements, a sweeping and meandering motif enriches the opening movements before a new, silky smooth arpeggio creates a spine-tingling moment in the breakdown. Rhythm and melody combine once more in the second half to create a work of passion and emotive tension.
Danny Lloyd is a storied name in the world of underground dance music. Fascinated by music from an early age, his forays into a diverse range of musical genres has brought him much success in both solo and collaborative ventures. With a portfolio that has seen work signed to BCSA, Lowbit and Soundteller, Lloyd's music for Particles is centred around 2015's "Espejismo" EP which went on to see remixes from fellow production partner, Andrea Cassino and French icon Rick Pier O'Neil. A clutch of remixes including Loquai and Pier O'Neil and Desaturate, is now joined by a remix of Mondkrater. Creating a dynamic groove and tightly interwoven bass line, Lloyd cleverly develops the melodic sequences that are so prevalent in the latter stages of Mondkrater's original into new and exciting directions. With subtlety and poise, a light and airy affair drifts enticingly along a nine-minute voyage of delight that passes in a hypnotic flash.
Polish producer, Jakub Heliński, is an artist who has carved out a sizeable niche over the course of 2017 with his Controlwerk moniker. Describing himself as a risk-taking 'sound auteur', inspired by Digweed and Kobana, Controlwerk's passion for progressive and deep house has led to over a century of production credits for the likes of Soundwaves, BC2 and Spring Tube, while January 2017's full-length "Borderline" album featured on Tuxedo's Electronic Tree. His music supported by a gamut of international DJs that include Gai Barone, Above and Beyond and Kenneth Thomas, it is a pleasure to welcome back Controlwerk after his remix of East Café in June. Crafting a unique remix of "Stellar Depth", the melodic themes central to Mondkrater's work immediately make their presence felt as a strong percussive backdrop fills the stereo spectrum and a swathe of shakers and hi-hats accompanying a dominant beat. Beautifully crafted new melodic structures make a sympathetic appearance at the breakdown in a work of imagination and technique.
Remixes from Fairchild, Danny Lloyd and Controlwerk find "Binary" divisible by three.
