Having graduated from The Fat! Club with flying colours following last year’s soulful Chicago number Lies Lies Lies, which featured in our free EP005, we welcome Leicester based newcomer Arka to the Fat! Records family with his debut Delusions EP, featuring three solid cuts of stripped back, dynamic UK House.
We are taken deep into the warehouse on lead track Maya and thrown back out at the end, a shadow of a former selves. A merciless, punishing assault on the senses; just how we like it!
Up next is the distortion frenzy of second track Holding On; a melting pot of jackin’ grooves and super tight percussive fills, with just enough space for you to hold on for the ride!
Closing track I Got What You Need showcases Arka’s versatile palette with its flush, weighty percussion and bouncy rhythm, rounding off a satiating debut release.
With heavy support from My Nu Leng and Low Steppa so far, we look forward to watching Arka grow from strength to strength throughout 2014.
