The latest release on RPO Records finds the label showcasing new remixes for Anthony G ‘Pravda’.
Originally out in July of this year the single track release shot to the top of RPO’s Beatport sales chart almost immediately and continues to hold that spot today. Now for the labels 71st release we see Desaturate and RPO providing updates for the fall season.
The first interpretation of ‘Pravda’ is provided by Desaturate who is making his first appearance on the label. As one half of the famed Progress Inn duo Janko Dragovic aka Desaturate is on a new path with this brand new moniker. It’s already brought much success, with his first ever EP (courtesy of E Sound Records) enjoying a one month long stay in the Beatport Progressive house chart. Subsequent appearances on Sound Avenue, Dopamine Music and Particles have made Desaturate a household name in the progressive underground and his ‘Pravda’ remix looks to be one of his most well received to date. Already enjoying the top spot in Release Promo’s overall Top 100, Desaturate’s driving techno inspired revision really hits the spot. The beefed up percussion and trailing effects are a deadly combination, particularly coming out of the break and on through a ferocious third act. Massive stuff from Desaturate.
The second and final interpretation of ‘Pravda’ is provided by RPO who is making his 66th appearance on the label. Known to many as Rick Pier O’Neil the French producer and RPO Records label boss has enjoyed a momentous resurgence this year. Releases on JOOF Recordings, Perspectives Digital and Mistique Music have led the way and Rick continues his progressive techno dominance with a great interpretation of ‘Pravda’ here. With a deeper, more spacious approach, Rick’s revision complements the bigger Desaturate one quite nicely. All of the French producer’s sonic hallmarks come to life here with rolling beats, gnarly acid-like designs and an ominous synth assault leading the piece out of the break. There’s a subversive emotion locked in there as well, with reprocessed vocals and a catchy arp conjuring up a very unique vibe. Awesome remix from RPO and another great release from Rick and RPO Records.
