Meet the Arkanoydz.
The seeds of the Arkanoydz were sown when Giotto Bini, a long time international Italian DJ with a history in production, teamed up with Andrea Rizzo, one of the original members of outfit known as Etnica and Pleiadians. Andrea's input into the Etnica project is legendary, as it was his melodic structures that gave the forms to the early sounds of Goa Trance and lay the foundations that hundreds of producers would try to immitate. Together, Andrea and Giotto made a formidable production team, but they knew they needed an edge to push them to the fore-front of the modern psychedelic trance sound, and for that they turned to Young Kim, aka DJ Young, the globe-trotting international DJ, label manager of Etnicanet records, and resident for London's Fairy Tales nights.
With the team formed the three locked themselves down in their secret headquarters deep in the hills around Milano and got to work. Several months later, and they had created the Type One album, and with it the Arkanoydz sound. Combining ideas and themes from modern psychedelic trance they merged their own musical DNA into the sounds. Dark tones weave through the low end of the spectrum, merging with melodies that breathe with a synthetic intelligence. Metallic percussion snaps like a Venus fly-trap, while voluputously curved basslines lure you ever onward with their call.
While each track shines with its own identity, the atmosphere of the Arkanoydz is ever-present throughout the album, as the trio explore themes of electro, disco, house and progression all within the boundaries of modern psychedelic trance, and striving to push the concept of modern electronic music ever further. This is dance music of the future, and it is with great pride that Sonic Dragon Records are able to present this to the world.
