Arkist-Rendezvous / Fill Your Coffee (Apple Pips)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 20, 2011 by J.D.

Apple Pips are very proud to present 2 emotive slices of bass-led dancefloor funk from another hugely talented Bristol based producer – Arkist.

Arkist’s reputation has been building this year, with a gorgeous melodic edge to his futuristic beats, and a unique sense of space and rhythm. Having heard his sound develop over the last year it’s a real pleasure to present 2 tracks which have been on constant rotation round here, and out in the clubs we play in…

’Rendezvous’ clashes classic 2-step garage vibes with amazing melancholy synth work to create a future bass steppa that gets an amazing response every time it is dropped…

’Fill your Coffee’ comes with a lo-slung funked out twist, culminating in a rushy pad breakdown that just sounds incredible on a big system believe me!

With gigs at Fabric & two American tours under his belt, & a killer 12” with Kidkut coming on Hotflush, Arkist is poised for great things in 2011. Tracks already getting support from DJs as diverse as Ben UFO (Hessle), Boddika (Swamp 81), Alexander Nut (Eglo), Mr Scruff, & many more.
Artist: Arkist
Title: Rendezvous / Fill Your Coffee
Format: Vinyl 12”
Label: Apple Pips
Release: 11 July 2011

Introducin​g : Capital Cities+Free Download

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on June 20, 2011 by J.D.


Los Angeles-based electro-pop duo Capital Cities isn’t afraid to let the Southern California sunshine seep into their music. Synth-tastically bright, danceable and catchy, yet maintaining a depth that reflects the band’s roots in San Francisco, Paris and Armenia, it’s loaded with appeal. Perhaps it’s the vintage Juno-106 heard punching out across their self-titled debut EP, or the unique timbre of frontmen Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian’s blended vocals. Either way, Capital Cities’ songs are genuinely connecting with people.

Already making a splash with their remix for Nu Thang, which made its way onto none other than The Daily Beast, the band have now released their debut self titled EP featuring the single Safe And Sound. Claimed to be “…a big sound that surely will not be rejected on the dance floor” by GrungeCake and “…a survey course on everything great about electro-pop music” by Raving Riots, Capital Cities have been making waves across the blogosphere with their undeniably addicting tracks.

Download Safe And Sound

Performing in front of sellout crowds all over California, including hometown haunts The Troubadour and El Rey Theater, Capital Cities has a quickly growing fan base. TV personality Chelsea Handler recently selected their single Safe and Sound to be featured on her live comedy tour playlist. Perhaps more impressive is the duo’s collaboration with one of their longtime musical heroes on their first release. They formed a relationship with Simon Mills (UK electronica group BENT) in 2010 that ultimately led to him producing their track I Sold My Bed, But Not My Stereo.

Upcoming Capital Cities tour dates:
June 17 J Lounge Los Angeles, CA EP Release party w/ DJ Jason Bentley and DAVI
June 24 Cafe DuNord San Francisco, CA w/ audiafauna

In 2008, Merchant and Simonian met by chance through Craigslist and formed a composing team. After writing hooks and jingles for numerous high-profile ad campaigns, they realized their musical chemistry was destined to create something more personal. In 2010, Capital Cities was officially born.

With all they have accomplished in less than a year, Capital Cities has proven to be fast on the rise as a band to watch.
