Release: CHANNEL A
Label: SPIRIT OF RAVE
Date: 10 FEBRUARY 2023
Rushing with the energy and euphoria of acid house and the massive early 90s mega-raves, new Scottish DJ and producer ARKLEY drops his Channel A EP on Spirit Of Rave Records.
Loaded with hypnotic 303 synth pulses, irresistible M1 keyboard stabs, uplifting gospel vocals and banging old school house rhythms, ARKLEY continues his signature reworking of classic 90s dance sounds to create three vibrant modern tracks.
Channel A was produced by ARKLEY in his home studio, with mastering input from Mike Marsh (The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers, The Shamen and Bizarre Inc). It follows the summer 2022 release of his 'Origins EP' ("proper rave vibes" 5/5 - DMC Mag; "this is massive" - BBC Introducing), 'Rave '92 (Everybody Dancing)' (BBC Introducing "tip of the week") and his debut 'Music (Over & Over)', which was used on primetime BBC News to soundtrack scenes from Leeds Festival.
ARKLEY has received support from tastemaker DJs including the legend Judge Jules, playlisting on Apple Music's New In Dance, multiple plays on BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio, over 200k combined streams for his three releases to date, as well as features in DMC World, Fortitude, Backseat Mafia, Snack, Mundane Magazine and EDM Lab. He has also produced guest mixes for Housesessions, Clubbing TV, Dance Nation Radio and Trackwolves XL.
