First Listen: Arkajo – ‘Tape 8’ (BSS Records)

DJs, producers and label owners Silas & Snare met in Leeds. Having taken up residencies at nights like Subdub and Bigger than Barry and released music via labels such as Madam X’s Kaizen Records, the pair also run the event-turned vinyl record label Brotherhood Soundsystem.

With four releases under their belt so far that has seen music from the likes of A:Tonal, Troy Gunner and the pair themselves, BSS’ latest outing comes via Swedish producer and electronic mastermind Nils Krogh, aka Arkajo.

Best known as one half of the dreamy house duo Genius Of Time, Arkajo’s solo efforts come on a darker tip, with the three minimalist tracks that make the Panacea EP aimed towards the later proceedings on the dance floor.

Ahead of its release we’re excited to premiere ‘Tape 8’, where erratic components are carefully restrained by the forces in the lower end of the spectrum, teasing eruption but instead finding home right on the hinges. Check below…

Panacea is out September 8 on Brotherhood Soundsystem. Pre-order it here
