Dynamic, deep and progressive, with contrasting vibes of tension and optimism, 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 such as Stelios Vassiloudis, Ramon Tapia, Darren Emerson, Dave Seaman, John ‘00’ Fleming, Jay Tripwire, Matthew Dear, Justin Massei, Karsten Sollors, Tyler Stadius, and Max Ulis. Previous productions and releases include EPs and singles on Woodwork Recordings, Submarine Vibes, Suprematic Sounds, Nuevadark, Major League Recordings, East Van Digital and Steamtown.
