07/28 Silinder's 21:21 remixed by Soulwerk, Erdi Irmak
Long time friend of Proton Music, Irish production guru, Gavin Mulhall, has continued to drive forward the underground dance genre through his Silinder pseudonym. A musical legacy that stretches back a decade, 2014's "Basement" EP was yet another landmark moment in a celebrated career that has gone on to see a clutch of notable remixes. After a recent release on Balkan Connection, "21:21" now receives a remix EP of its own on Proton Music itself.
Madrid based Gonzalo Luque has provided a steady stream of impressive productions under his Soulwerk alter ego since 2011's debut for Whose Haus. Previously featuring on such imprints as Cr2, Great Stuff and Saved with considerable success, the Soulwerk name allowed Luque to change direction and concentrate on the "intimate concept of electronic music". A regular on Balkan Connection, Replug and the Visceral compilation series, March 2015's "Genesis" on the Nick Warren managed Hope was a notable career highlight. Supported by Eelke Kleijn, Hernan Cattaneo and Nick Muir, the Soulwerk portfolio for Proton began with the enigmatic "Searching For You Through the Stars" in 2014 with subsequent remixes from Rich Curtis and Kastis Torrau. 2015's "Spiritcatcher" marked another high point to be followed by a forthcoming remix EP.
With a foundation of heavy beat and lazy percussive rhythms, the Soulwerk remix of "21:21" is a rich and textured affair that revels in intelligent melodic elements that provide a hypnotic path alongside pitched and gated pad phrasing. A sure-fire dance floor hit with its tech house tribal rhythms and echoes of Silinder's original melodies, the Soulwerk remix is likely to earn the Spaniard many more fans.
From cosmopolitan Istanbul on the banks of the ancient Bosphorus, Erdi Irmak has emerged to blend the subtle eastern flavours of his Turkish homeland with a thoroughly modern production sound that has seen his status rise rapidly. A penchant for a host of styles ranging from deep house to progressive and techno, Irmak's 2011 debut on Physical Gravity quickly expanded into an ever-increasing body of work for the likes of Movement, Stripped and LuPS.
A score of production credits for sister label Particles and a debut full-length album, have also seen the "You In Me" EP hit Proton music with remixes from Tvardovsky and Lonya, while the forthcoming "Night" EP continues Erdi Irmak's trend in producing original material. Remixing Silinder, the Erdi Irmak remix sees "21:21" taken in a smooth melodic direction. Tribute is fully paid to the original mix with house flavour and chords in tact, while Irmak's additional production material has provided an elegant percussive flair to accompany new melodic sequences. The result is something special.
From the medieval city of Turku, on the southwest coast of his home country, Finnish producer Tommi Pirinen has carved out a considerable niche for himself using his Oskari production name and 2011's "Dream Beater" debut for Architronica. With a penchant for "the smooth vibes of deep house to driving progressive tech house and techno", the Finn has demonstrated a mastery of production styles that have seen subsequent releases on Juicebox, Lowbit and BC2. Furthermore a remix of Sonic Union and Khen's "Introspection" for fellow countryman Cid Inc.'s Replug, is a notable highlight in an expanding career.
Now making his Particles debut, the Tommi Oskari remix of "Paradiso" is a chugging, rhythmic affair that evolves through its seven-minute journey with a poise and grace that is an equal to the original. Using Omar El Gamal's original components as a foundation, additional production sees a gated synth sequence provide a hypnotic layer of intrigue in a work of considerable skill.
In the small town of Tongeren, the oldest in Belgium, Dominique Heyninck has extended his influence far beyond the borders of his home country. Through his Madloch production pseudonym and a triumvirate of labels that include Sound Avenue, Crossfade Sounds and 3rd Avenue, Madloch has provided the underground music scene with a galaxy of releases from high-profile artists supported by the likes of Jon Digweed, Hernan Cattaneo and Eelke Kleijn and featuring in a monthly show on Proton Radio. As a producer and DJ, Forward Music, Visceral and Agara have found a home to the Madloch sound alongside a quarter century of credits on Sound Avenue.
Joining forces with Mexican producer Hot TuneIK who has provided material for both Sound Avenue and 3rd Avenue in 2015 thus far, the pair have conjured up a magical interpretation of "Hacienda". Retaining key melodic elements from the Omar El Gamal original, the Madloch and Hot TuneIK remix rises in intensity through warm grooved bass line and driving percussive rhythms. Full of dance floor sensibilities and flawless additional production, the duo's remix is a glossy, intelligent production that oozes quality from every bar.

07/22 Compiled & Mixed by Ewan Rill & Milos Miladinovic
Balkan Connection's reputation in the world of underground dance is second to none. An imprint of quality and distinction in an ever-shifting world of club music, label manager Milos Miladinovic and resident artist Ewan Rill – with over a century of production credits for Balkan Connection alone – have continued to shape the sounds and direction of the modern underground house with the minimum of fuss and a maximum of quality.
Weaving a magical path with flawless technical execution, the driving percussive rhythms of Marcelo Vasami, Silinder and Danny Lloyd blend immaculately with remixes from Rich Curtis, Guy J and Stas Drive. A liberal smattering of Rill's own production work adds further to the evocative blend with a stamp of class and authority, as the effortless combination of melodic interplay and bass driven energy provides a constant companion throughout the epic twenty-track score.
At over two hours in length, Milos Miladinovic provides the perfect parallel to Ewan Rill's work. A source of thumping, rhythmic majesty, established icons including, Cid Inc., Derek Howell and Eelke Kleijn jockey for position alongside relative newcomers in Simos Tagias, Michael A and Following Light to create a mix that bristles with vitality and elegance. Add to the equation the presence of such glittering imprints as Flow Vinyl, Replug and Balkan Connection itself, and the resulting output is a guaranteed formula for dance floor success.
