Release: MUSIC (OVER & OVER)
Label: TILEYARD MUSIC
Release Date: OUT NOW
Sounding at once timeless and completely fresh, 'Music (Over & Over)' is the debut electro and big beat influenced single from Scottish DJ and producer ARKLEY.
Produced by ARKLEY in his home studio and mastered by Mike Marsh (The Chemical Brothers, Basement Jaxx, Cassius, Calvin Harris), 'Music (Over & Over)' showcases ARKLEY's unique sampling style inspired by The Avalanches, Danger Mouse and The Dust Brothers. It has been supported by multiple plays on BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio, as well as features in DMC World, Mundane Magazine, EDM Lab and the Yorkshire Post. It was also used on prime-time BBC News to soundtrack a collage of footage from Leeds Festival.
Unified by chunky layers of disco breaks, an infectious Gary Numan-esque bassline and an ear for unforgettable hooks, 'Music (Over & Over)' is a playful and uplifting patchwork of samples across genres and decades where a New York hip hop MC mixes with soul divas, 80s synth new wave and Daft Punk French touch to dizzyingly danceable effect.
A former member of Heads We Dance (signed to 679/Warner, supported by NME and Mixmag, topped the Hype Machine worldwide chart) and on hiatus from vocal D&B act Deuce & Charger ("a force to be reckoned with in the global dance music scene" - Data Transmission), ARKLEY has returned to his original musical influences with a joyous blend of skilfully juxtaposed samples and an undeniable knack for producing irresistible tracks.
