Standalone series: Dark Arps (metadata_records / Vancouver / CA)

This week, Le Catalyste Standalone series receive Dark Arps, a Vancouver based DJ and producer who spent almost 15 years in the UK !
more info and tracklist bellow !

He sent us a 2h long DJ set divided into 2 parts:
1h with a lot of jazz/funk fused with breakbeat and trip-hop amongst the techy future-music. The second hour begins as he describes it : "with a particular favourite from Sasha’s ‘Airdrawndagger’ which queues me up to deliver a further hour of “standard fare” dancefloor tunes which I might want to play during an eg. 2300-0000 slot."

Find included some of his releases!
Dark Arps’ sound is a blend of broken beat and techno underpinned with dark, razor-sharp melodies, progressive hooks and tough basslines... futuristic, emotional and always danceable.

He has provided support to notable artists and has productions and releases on various label like Woodwork Recordings, Submarine Vibes, Suprematic Sounds... and now self-releasing on his own imprint - [metadata_records]
