Photons... A collective of particles that have come together to produce the pieces to the puzzle, a combination of those who carry a likeminded energy and travel on a similar frequency.
The introduction of Amsterdam’s Alex Sharp to the Recovery Collective family comes in the Photons Of Life form, bringing together a selection of artists that performed and together at John Doe during an RC showcase in 2016 to compile an EP like no other. Featuring the original by Alex, complemented by stellar remixes by label heads Jydn & Amuze, Bongani, Alegra and Prosdo.
Alex Sharp’s original track embarks on a deep and progressive journey lead by the signature arpeggiator and wind of the synth that twists, turns and evolves throughout the composition whilst maintaining the flow and hitting all the feels.
Following up the original are Recovery Collective head honchos Jydn & Amuze where they pick up the pace a with a rather driving and complex remix. Rich in energy and punch right from the get go via the chugging baseline, complemented by the broken drum patterns and soaring synth work.
Bongani then takes a more subtle and laid back yet still sticks to his roots with a driving, outdoor & progressive approach, complimenting the original perfectly. His intricate sound design throughout the track and breakdowns evidently show that he is truly stepping up all areas of his production.
A sheer representation of the way these Photons came together is shown through our connection with the moody and melancholic mastermind ALEGRA, who’s paths crossed by destiny, ended up in Amsterdam together and haven't turned back since. His remix is everything expected from him and so much more. An extremely delicate direction along with the attention to detail and way he intertwines the layers of synthesis is something that we feel is not only unmatched but is straight up world class.
Last but not least our brother Prosdo, Recovery Collective’s most released artist who has been with them from pretty much the beginning of time. He is that dialled into his sound at the moment and his absolute thumper of a remix shows how that he's not here to mess around. Straight the point and full of untz, rounding up the Photons Of Life release nicely.
Recovery Collective is a Melbourne based record label and collective with quite an extensive catalog dating back to 2014, currently working with artists and major music festivals right around Australia as well as overseas in countries such as Italy, Brazil, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, Mexico, Canada and more.
