Alex and Andrew have ridden an increasingly growing wave of success over the past nine years with their Lanvary production moniker. Divergent musical perspectives have seen the duo come together to "experiment in their musical kitchen". The culinary hard work has seen the duo perform regularly across their home country alongside the likes of Ben Bohmer and Jody Wisternoff, while production work has seen Lanvary amass some 150 production credits since a 2010 debut for Underphunk Recordings.
A raft of original and remix work has followed for the likes of Stellar Fountain, Balkan Connection and Mistique Music with music for both Particles and Proton Music causing a considerable stir within the underground dance fraternity. "Micromegas", "Penumbra" and "Leviathan" all showcased Lanvary's talent on the former, before December 2017's "Venus" stood out on Proton Music followed by remixes from Soulwerk and LADS. Lanvary themselves have remixed GMJ, Matter and Hot TuneiK and it is a pleasure to welcome them back with a typically impressive remix of Andre Sobota. Adding a huge bassline and immaculate groove to their reworking, an arpeggiated riff hypnotises across the 6-minute offering, pausing for airy pads to waft gently across the breakdown. Carefully sculpting elements from Sobota's "Left Behind", Lanvary have created an innovative and striking rework that pays homage to the original.
Rudy Dubé is an artist who has continued to break new ground with his contemplative and hugely impressive production work. Despite only having a clutch of production credits to his name since a May 2016 debut for Subjekt Recordings, Rudy has gone on to create an impression with his deeply melodic and elegantly crafted production work. May 2017's "Qualia" EP for Olleva Records was a notable highlight as was a remix of Quatri's "Ozora" for Nie Wider Schlafen four months later.
A Proton Music regular since a debut remixing David Calo in late 2017, February 2018's "Time / Spirit" EP saw a triptych of the highest quality supported by fans and peers alike. Remixes from GMJ and Matter and Andrea Cassino continued to showcase the EP before Rudy hit the Proton headlines once again with the incomparable "All Things Fade" in March 2019. Able to infuse his music with a subtle melodic elegance that sets him apart in a crowded scene, it is a pleasure to welcome Rudy back with a sublime reworking of Andre Sobota. Taking key elements from the title track, a rich new bassline generates a strong foundation for a ticking percussive groove. A new variation on a central motif mesmerises as it repeats across the 7-minute voyage with sensitivity and elegance, as pads from the original add texture and depth.
With inspiring remixes from Lanvary and Rudy, Andre Sobota has a new "Alter Ego".
