Further demonstrating the rich twenty-first century seam of talent found beyond Europe's old 'iron curtain' borders, Gregory Sahakyan crashed onto the global progressive scene under his Progreg moniker with "Deep Harmony", part of a quintet of tracks comprising the "Fall Particles 2012" compilation. "Representative of the new school of progressive music", Gregory sees each original piece as "an experiment between progressive sound and melodic techno" and it is this mantra that has seen his Progreg production guise gather pace throughout 2013. The "Underworld" EP for Svatoslav Tvardovsky's erudite Stereo Paradise imprint paved the way for further work on Spring Tube, DAR Digital and very recent remix of David Granha's "I Need a Toydoll" for Particles.

Reprising "Deep Harmony" here, listeners are reminded of the multifaceted layers of sound that encompass the Progreg style through swathes of pads and crystalline arpeggio riff, while two brand new remixes from Absolution and Fretwell provide further extension to the Particles relationship with Progreg and his "Deep Harmony".

Brainchild of Argentinean DJ and producer, Cristian Gandini from the Buenos Aries capital, Absolution is one of many collaborative creations that have seen him work with artists such as Mike Griego and Nicholas Van Orton. With a clutch of releases under his own name and a strong background in DJ'ing, Gandini's Absolution project has formed a strong relationship with the South American imprint, Baires in 2012. The delightful "Pleasure Delayer" has seen the focus of that relationship with remixes from Rich Curtis, Dark Soul Project and label head, Santiago Garcia all receiving widespread support. Turning his attentions toward "Deep Harmony", the Absolution remix provides a deep rhythmic flow of percussive claps and clicks enveloped in soft reverb while a straight bass line and hypnotic arpeggio hint at the blossoming of the full Progreg lead line that gradually weaves itself into the rhythmic pattern before subtly unfurling itself as rhythmic components once again come to the fore.

Stalwart of the progressive breaks scene, South Yorkshire man Tim Fretwell needs little introduction to followers of the progressive sound over the last decade. An illustrious past has seen his music supported by the 'great and good' of the DJ world from James Zabiela and Steve Porter to Sander Keinenberg and John Digweed. Indeed, it was the latter that contacted Fretwell to remix the huge Pole Folder and CP track "Dust" for Bedrock. Working for the finest imprints, recent work has seen him gracing the catalogues of Mesmeric and Intricate while his interpretation of Kyohei Akagawa's "Maps Unfadable" for Particles in early 2013 was a progressive jewel. Working his production magic on "Deep Harmony", Fretwell has crafted another progressive classic to add to his considerable portfolio. Full of the trademark vibrancy, melody and rhythmic know-how that has made his talents so sought after, Tim has lit up Progreg's original with wonderful additional production material ensuring dance floor supremacy is sure to follow.

Two harmonious remixes from Absolution and Fretwell have brought Progreg's "Deep Harmony" undoubted further success.
