Proton creative art and design supremo, Ben Mautner, is back with a Royal Sapien sized bang to take on the next installment of the Proton "Compiled and Mixed" series. After the huge success of the 2 disc epic that was the Moonbeam extravaganza, Kobana's silky production skills showcase across the Proton label roster and James Warren's recent second outing, Royal Sapien returns once again to illustrate precisely why his status as DJ extraordinaire and production guru are fully warranted.

With a rich production list as long as the proverbial arm, two successful and diverse record labels under the Proton umbrella in Olaris and Conquer, and an unsurpassed reputation as DJ that has seen him feature on John Digweed's "Transitions" show with his "Stacked" offering (part of the "Red" trilogy), Ben's first outing for "Compiled and Mixed" was a smorgasbord of musical flavours and combination of some 70 plus pieces of musical production, mixed in his own unique style.

Returning to the series, Royal Sapien's "Players" is a diametrically opposite approach to his "Product Placement" offering. Preferring to let the music do the talking, his aim was to compile a series "featuring the biggest names across the Proton labels" letting their productions shine in a straightforward "flowing sequence".

The result is a superb collection of high-profile artists and releases on some of Proton's finest imprints and mixed in Royal Sapien's inimitable and seamless signature style. King Unique, Luke Chable and Timo Maas sit comfortably next to one another while the dance floor grooves of Ben Coda and Nick Muir are woven expertly into the mix alongside progressive stalwarts Cid Inc and Arthur Deep.

Make no mistake; this is a blockbuster compilation where imprints such as Mesmeric, DAR and Replug fully earn their reputations as purveyors of supreme modern EDM. Furthermore, the most recent high-profile and newcomer to the 400 strong Proton label roster, Mark Betteridge's 99percentrecordings, is welcomed to into the fold with two remixes from their extensive catalogue.

A trawl through the Proton archives saw Royal Sapien "overwhelmed" by the sheer number of "Players" within its virtual walls. Further Royal Sapien excursions into the adventures of the big-hitters? Watch this space...
