Arkist is one of the new breeds of producer to have emerged in the wake of the dubstep wave.
Originally from Brighton, a move to Bristol to live with Appleblim, Wedge and Gatekeeper kick started his production career, as did partaking in a Music tech course at Bath Spa University. Since then his music has continued to evolve, taking in cues from house, techno and plenty of bass.
Big releases to date include the neon flow of ‘Fill Your Coffee’ on esteemed outlet Applepips, whilst his ‘One Year Later’ collaboration with Immerse boss Adam Jackson aka Kidkut on Hotflush – one of the hottest labels in the world right now – was also an underground hit. That label boss Scuba remixed the flip himself was the icing on the cake. Since then, Arkist has focused on gigging, playing much loved clubs like Fabric, London, festivals like Glade and Glastonbury and also many places around the States on a US tour.
Now, though, he’s back in production mode… The future holds plenty of exciting new releases for the man, including on Hypercolour, Inhale and Berlin’s Odd Socks, whilst features in Mixmag and Computer Music, plus a mix for Rob Booth’s influential Electronic Explorations series are sure to cement the man’s reputation yet further going in to 2013.
