A growing artist with a passion for "awakening evolving minds", Demitros and sometime collaboration partner, Dante Pippi, are rising stars in the Brazilian underground dance scene. Bursting onto the scene in December 2016 with "Demogorgon" for The Alien Gate, Demitros has since gone on to feature heavily for Particles. July 2017 marked a debut for the label with the twin-track "Cosmos", while February 2018 saw the outstanding "Quantum Tunneling" with high profile remixes from Kastis Torrau and Nicolas Rada that then saw the track featured in the Visceral compilation series.
Joining forces with fellow countryman Dante Pippi in November 2018, "When You Get There" saw two new original productions combined with remixes from Pole Folder and Imran Khan. An August 2018 remix of Pole Folder himself is now joined by a superb reworking of "Gone" as Demitros and Dante Pippi take the elements from the original and shape them in new musical directions that sparkle with new musical riffs and counterpoint melody. A driving beat and strong percussion give further depth to an impressive new reworking.
French star, Rick Pier O'Neil, needs no introduction to the underground music fraternity. An iconic figure whose illustrious career has seen him work with such household names as Donna Summer and Stevie Wonder for the likes of Sony Music and Motown, his entrance into the world of progressive house has seen the Frenchman amass over 1000 production credits. Under the umbrella of his own RPO and Garbage Records, several hundred tracks have enlightened a growing fanbase with a distinctive and successful sound that has seen his work featured on the likes of Bonzai Progressive, JOOF and Clubsonica Records. The expertly curated "One Side of the Underground" series has seen Rick Pier O'Neil make his mark on Proton Music, while his work for Particles has seen a clutch of releases in collaboration with Desaturate.
Thus, September 2015's "Spirals" and July 2016's "Crouch / Cursed" EPs have kept O'Neil at the forefront of the scene with remixes of Kastis Torrau and Donatello and Nicolas Rada showcasing his genuine skill as a remixer. Taking on "Gone", the Rick Pier O'Neil remix is an expertly crafted affair that creates a link with the original through a dark and driving bassline that provides a menacing touch. Clever melodic touches light up the pulsating rhythmic framework hinting at the phrasing laid down by Trilucid and Phil Martyn and extended by a raft of immaculate additional production material. The result is another Rick Pier O'Neil masterstroke.
Remixes from Demitros and Dante Pippi and Rick Pier O'Neil find "Gone" very much part of the here and now.
