Lucas Rossi has been an impressive contributor to Argentina's underground dance scene for almost a decade. From his Cordoba home, a residency at "Bianca Espacio Electronica" saw impressive performances with Darin Epsilon, Matias Chilano and Deminicis himself, while gigs across South America have seen him perform on the same bill as Jimmy Van M, Dave Seaman and Eelke Klein. A production career that has seen over a century of credits hit a stream of high-profile imprints after a 2014 debut for Suffused Music, has since found Rossi's work on the likes of Songbird and Balkan Connection, while a further notable highlight was an appearance on Nick Warren's The Soundgarden with the "Adversities" EP in May 2018.
A pair of Particles remixes for Lanvary in October 2017 and Kynan Cosma in September 2018 are now joined by a third as Lucas Rossi delivers a compelling rework. Paying tribute to Deminicis' track, the refrains of the original create a familiar framework before the melodic phrasing so central to "Life on the Moon" cleverly lifts itself out of the rhythmic groove. A strong beat, white-noise washes and airy pads create extra depth in a strong remix.
Striving to be an "original and unique artist, with his own style of music", Filip Abramczyk has been a standout performer in Poland's underground dance scene. Through his Pysh moniker, the Warsaw resident hit the headlines after winning a remix competition for Booka Shade's "Regenerate" and going on to perform regularly across Poland and Europe alongside Robert Babicz, Kolombo and Josh Wink. This springboard for success has led to over 250 production credits sitting proudly next to the Pysh name with an album and vinyl release for Einmusika high on a list of achievements. A regular for the label, other work has seen him featured on such heavyweights as Get Physical, Manjumasi and Steyoyoke.
A spirited Particles debut remixing Rudy UK in June 2018 quickly saw the release of the five-track, "Ballada" some three months later, as remixes from Matias Chilano and Christian Hornbostel added to a trio of impressive original tracks. Now returning, the Pysh remix of "Tao the King" takes the pulsating bassline of the original and uses it form the basis of a rhythmic groove foundation that anchors the tracks against a collage of panned shakers and closed hats. Building with consummate ease a chorus of melodies firmly rooted in the original make their presence felt at the breakdown. With clever production technique and a swathe of original production material Pysh has created a unique and impressive remix.
Remixes from Lucas Rossi and Pysh have continued to showcase "Life on the Moon" for Juan Deminicis.
