Janko Dragovic is an artist with a long and rich association with the underground dance industry. First, through his Progress Inn moniker alongside Igor Kadic, and then on his own under the Desaturate moniker, Dragovic has continued to wow audiences with spellbinding DJ sets across Europe and Australia supporting the likes of Sasha, Cattaneo and Zabiela. An ever-expanding production portfolio has seen the Desaturate name featured on a host of blue-chip imprints and a century of production credits tell their own success story on Replug, Balkan Connection and Juicebox Music. Furthermore, Particles became a regular home to Desaturate's music, exemplified by "The Unholy Mountain" in May 2016 and collaborations with Rick Pier O'Neil and Forniva throughout 2016 and 2017.
January 2018's "Wanderer" EP showcased a stunning three-track EP on Proton Music and a remix of Deeparture's "Embraer" in November 2019 is now joined by a wonderfully creative interpretation of "Macropsia". With a chunky, driving rhythm in full effect, the pulsating bassline of the original is quickly developed with a new heavily modulated and gated lead line that takes on a life of its own while retaining the central characteristics of Huminal's work. Building in intensity, syncopated synths blend with a superbly effected guitar phrase that brings the track into an exciting new direction post-breakdown.
An artist at the peak of his powers, Matias Chilano reigns supreme across his Argentinean homeland. A regular across the clubs of Buenos Aries, Cordoba and beyond South American borders, Chilano has shared the stage with a global DJ elite that incudes Nick Warren, Quivver, Khen and Jimmy Van M. Moreover, his ability to play piano and drums since the age of seven, has seen a triple century of production credits find their way onto such esteemed labels as Balkan Connection, Mistique Music and Soundteller supported by the cream of world DJs including Hernan Cattaneo and Armin Van Buuren.
A trio of remixes for Particles throughout 2018 showcased Chilano's considerable talent as he now debuts on Proton Music with an elegantly crafted remix of "Macropsia" that is full of trademark attention to detail and hypnotic and silkily evolving sound progression. Retaining the essence of Huminal's work, a host of additional production material manifests itself in gloriously textured chord and haunting new motifs that add a new depth and character exploding into life in the third movement.
Remixes from Desaturate and Matias Chilano continue to showcase "Macropsia" with vivid intensity.
