New to the label, Austin Martin lit up the "Summer Particles 2018" compilation in August last year. Now returning with a full debut EP in the teasingly titled "Space Cake", Austin Dest and Martin Snel provide another moment of melodic vibrancy as the rippling arpeggios and muted motifs of the title track provide the perfect counterweight to a driving rhythm and pulsating bassline. Reprised here, "In the End" reminds listeners of the Dutch duo's production prowess, while a pair of remixes from Australia and Russia take "Space Cake" on a different voyage.

Hailing originally from Tasmania but moving to the bustling Sydney metropolis to immediate success, Zankee Gulati is an artist who provides club audiences with a scintillating bend of sounds that encompass the full gamut of underground dance music – from deep and progressive house to rich melodic techno. Performances alongside an array of bluechip DJs that include Guy J, Robert Babicz and Eelke Kleijn have only enhanced a growing reputation. A nascent production career that began with 2017's "Airborne" on Clinique Recordings has been followed by work for such established imprints as Stellar Fountain and Bonzai Progressive, while May 2018's "Breathe" EP saw an impressive Particles debut with a pair of original tracks combined with remixes from Marcelo Paladini and Beat Maniacs. Now returning, the aptly titled Zankee Gulati "Cosmos" remix reveals a stripped back, atmospheric reworking of "Space Cake". Taking the central melodic themes of the original, Gulati has applied a laidback broken beat foundation that supplies the perfect vehicle for twinkling piano motifs to drift gently across the mid-range. The addition of spoken samples and ambient effects thus creates a delicate moment of magic.

Ewan Rill is a Russian artist who needs little in the way of introduction. A mainstay of the global underground dance scene for nearly a decade, over 1,600 production credits sit proudly next to the Saint Petersburg resident's name, for over 70 different labels. Over 250 of those credits have been welcome contributions to the Balkan Connection family of labels while further work for the likes of Spring Tube, Stellar Fountain and Suffused Music continue to find Rill a sought-after producer in a demanding and constantly-evolving industry. A debutant with LoQuai as part of the "Winter Particles 2015" compilation, "Beat Meditation" went on to receive a full release with remixes from Artem Kalalb and Cream and Deep Fog. A remix of Pete K's "Perseu" saw a return to the label in September 2017 as Ewan Rill now remixes "Space Cake" with suitable aplomb. A driving beat heralds the familiar refrains from the Austin Martin original as a reverb-laden percussive groove, full of hi-hat urgency, provides a strong foundation for a chorus of additional production material to hit new heights. A running bassline adds dancefloor urgency as new melodic motifs and chord progression add a touch of class.

Remixes from Zankee Gulati and Ewan Rill have kept Austin Martin flying high with all the "Space Cake" they can eat.
