My good friends DJ Shortee and DJ Faust, have a fantastic leading label called Heavy Artillery Recordings, and they have a lot of cool artists, tracks and content that is played globally by DJ’s all over the world in clubs, festivals and venues. I have a long friendship with both Faust & Shortee (Urban Assault), and I was honored to be able to sing on their artist Arkasia’s latest album “Electronic Symphony” which you can find on Beatport. I invited my friend Chadington Von Lichtenstein from The Pattern Interrupt to add the screams and extreme metal vocals. Together with my singing and his metal vocals we made a pretty cool listening experience. Super proud of the outcome! Thanks brothers! We hope the album does awesome!
Arkasia's rise to the upper echelons of the EDM world has been nothing short meteoric. One of the brightest shining lights to emerge from the electronic music scene in recent times, his music has earned him critical acclaim from all corners of the globe and a quickly growing die-hard fan base. Arkasia's music fronts a level of maturity and understanding all too rarely seen in the EDM world. A sublime sense of space, structure and flow gives his sound a refreshing point of difference. His monstrous compositions are moving, powerful and uplifting, enchanting and haunting, and touch the very depths of your soul. Arkasia's musical calling came at the tender age of five when he mastered the violin, and continued well into his teens, where he was composing mini-operas by age 15. His broad musical roots and experience playing in both orchestras and metal bands is evident throughout his compositions, however his creations reach far beyond the realms of Classical and Metal, IDM, Dubstep and Drum&Bass into uncharted territories! Coming off the heels of a feature song in the movie Elysium and the his recent smash EP "Orbit EP", Arkasia is back with "Electronic Symphony", a 12 track album which exemplifies his diverse grasp of powerful composition, rich textural depth and an unrivaled vision for new electronic music with no limits!
YourEDM.com Review: 05.05.14
“…On the other end of the spectrum, ‘Digital Spirit’ makes use of Arkasia’s time as part of a metal band. Featured vocalists Justin Lassen & Chadington Von Lichtenstein lend a certain degree of anger and genuineness to the production. Highly modulated, carefully crafted guitar riffs are laid over the dark bassline and thundering drums as the screaming begins. Certainly, the combination of Lassen and Von Lichtenstein’s voices in the track create an interesting dynamic when juxtaposed with the rest of the album…”
