An Argentinean artist with a rich musical heritage and global renown, Axel Bray has derived considerable success with his Partenaire production name. Now debuting on Particles with "Ex-Machina", remixes come courtesy of German and Brazilian artists.

A Buenos Aries native, the Partenaire name has seen Bray hit the global music stage on numerous occasions with work signed to such high-profile imprints as Clubsonica, ICONYC and Stellar Fountain. With a century of production credits to his name, high-profile support has come form a host of blue-chip tastemakers that include Nick Warren, Guy J and Eelke Kleijn with further support on Aly and Fila's Future Sound of Egypt show and fellow countryman, Hernan Cattaneo's Resident. The title track bristles with low-end dominance as a growling bassline supplies immediate melodic intonation. A ticking percussive groove and deep kick provide a club-friendly backbone while melodic phrasing comes courtesy of vocal phrasing at the mid-point and a striking arpeggio that hypnotically reveals itself throughout the third movement. Partner track, "Endangered" is again characterised by a strong and dynamic bassline that sits effortlessly against an intricate percussive groove. A delicious array of melodies emerges across the mid-range, as a hypnotic arpeggio and then a haunting lead line provide texture and depth in equal measure. The result in a darkly impressive offering.

A self-confessed "DJ and creator of melodic beats", Paul Baule is a new artist operating of Germany. From his home in the Berlin capital, Baule's nascent career has already seen him feature on Dutch behemoth, Click Records with the four-track "Phosphenes" hitting the label in late 2018. With further original music on LW Recordings and Mind Field Recordings, it is a pleasure to welcome Baule to Particles with a debut remix. Characterised by a tasty groove and reverb-laden percussion section. Partenaire's bassline is stripped back to a note on the bar to provide the foundation for a rich melodic tapestry to reveal itself as the track progresses. Cleverly taking key elements from the original, Paul Baule has taken "Ex-Machina" and created a stunning interpretation full of craft, skill and mature production technique.

Fans of Proton Music and Particles will remember the name of George Gomes for his work under the GRG production moniker. A Brazilian artist of sizeable talent, the GRG name has been writ large across some of the finest modern imprints including Vapour Recordings, Stripped Digital and Cid Inc.'s Replug. Making his debut in 2009, some fifty production credits have been scattered across a nine-year career that has seen the Brazilian hit the heights on numerous occasions. Making his debut for Particles remixing Tim Penner's beautiful "Lost Again" in September 2017, GRG returns to the label with an outstanding remix of "Endangered". Redolent in angular, chunky rhythm and rapid-fire hi-hat percussion, the central melodic theme from Partenaire's original makes its presence felt in shimmering fashion, accompanied by a dramatic, gleaming arpeggio sequence that showcases GRG's talent. Hitting its stride post-breakdown with arpeggio and bass in full effect, the result is powerful and impressive.
