As summer wends its sunlit path across crystal waters and cerulean skies, Particles pauses once more to reflect upon a quarterly compilation full of experience and promise. "Summer Particles 2015" sees eleven tracks from artists located across South America, Europe and Australia, come together in a single work of summer elegance.

The first quartet of tracks sees Russian established producer and label owner, Asten, open proceedings with a beautiful slice of electronica as "Bird's Adventures" swims across seven minutes with smooth melodic flow and evocative atmosphere. Hungarian, Fiddler, provides a transition in to deep house subtlety with "I'll Keep You in my Hands". Delay-drenched vocal cuts vie with rich pads and drifting beats to create a lazy summer vibe before Baunder returns with an excellent stripped back "Dub" take on his recent successful remix of Huminal's "Morning Riser" from the "Pocket Universe" EP on Particles. The learnedly named "Montessori " from Polish duo, Tuxedo and Rafa'EL take hypnotic rhythmic riffs to new heights, paired with multiple layers of counterpoint melody to impressive effect.

Fresh from work for Lowbit, MNL and 3rd Avenue, second Argentinean, Juan Astudillo, enhances a growing reputation with "Café Medianoche", a beautifully worked progressive house offering that offers complex arpeggio sequences coupled with driving rhythms, while Portuguese producer Li-Polymer extends a stellar career thus far with the trademark bass-fuelled sound that provides an exquisite backdrop for the "Silence Between Us" as it bounces forward in relentless hypnotic state. Arthur Minnahmetov combines a collage of intricate percussive rhythms and airy textured pads to mesmerising effect in "Fomo" before Intricate Records stalwart, Sebastian Weikum then hits his stride once again with the beautifully constructed, "Kyoto" – a TB303-tinged bass line supplying energised backdrop before a looped vocal cuts creates a melodic texture all of its own backed by thumping house beat.

Fresh from his "Zodiacs and That" EP on Particles earlier in the summer, Australian producer, Somersault, extends a fledgling career with the smooth house vibe of "Crux". Soft organic keys combine with hard-edge arpeggio before a series of house vocal cuts and thumping kick deliver dance floor groove. Romanian duo, Smart Wave and Pake extend the Ibiza terrace feel with "Sunny House Down", a meticulously blended combination of house chords and stripped back staccato rhythmic interplay before a return to electronica in the final act. Taking "Rip Tide", part of the newly released" Gold Dusted" EP, Vitamindevo reprises the work with a new "Waves Edit" that creates a stripped back version of the original work, removing the bass line and allowing the strong rhythms and melodic elements to take centre stage.

Eleven new tracks provide a warm, shimmering glow over "Summer Particles 2015".
