Arkon Fly :: released August 22 2014
After leading edge support on their debut single ‘Through The Fire’ from Skream, Duke Dumont, and Julio Bashmore, London duo Arkon Fly (Big Jam and Bixby) continue their route into funk-fuelled house with ‘Back Seat’.
Gaining immediate attention through Earmilk, Annie Mac tweets, ‘Back Seat’ has already picked up continued support from Radio 1 specialist Rob Da Bank, Toddla T and MistaJam. 'Backseat' showcases with enhanced gusto the manifold talent and impressive vocal chops of this prodigious duo, with a tour de force of celebratory disco-funk, hook-laden falsetto and sneaking synth bass, coming on like Prince's '1999' updated to present day London.
The throwback sound warming out the northern hemisphere signifies the start of an electronic soul /funk scene coming out of London’s progressive underground. With an LP in the works, Arkon Fly is leading the sound of funk and soul back into the clubs. In the interim keep an ear out for their vocal feature on a forthcoming Julio Bashmore track.
