The first Stripped Recordings release of 2016 come from Arqana who are Chris Scott of Lexicon Avenue & Echomen fame alongside Darren Drake. The release is accompanied by remixes from two prolific producers right now Arnas D and Michael A.
Arqana is the exciting new project from progressive house aficionado Darren Drake, and world renowned producer Chris Scott.
Chris’ biography, under such monikers as Lexicon Avenue, Echomen, Mooncat and Fishead, reads like a whos-who of electronica. Having tasted UK top 10 national chart success with 4 top 30 records, Chris has remixed everyone, from Depeche Mode to Danny Tenaglia.
His productions have featured on many of the best, and most influential, major and independent labels in the world, labels such as – Virgin, Island, Mute, PWL, Mercury, Deconstruction, Yoshitoshi, Airtight, Hooj Choons, Paper Recordings, Saw Recordings, Stereo, Audio Therapy, Junior Boys Own, NRK, Rennaisance, Plastica, and Multiply, as well as on his co-owned label, the seminal Forensic Records.
Darren, like his ArQana studio partner Chris, has been deeply rooted in house music culture since the dawn of the 1990s. Darren quickly developed a strong inclination towards the deeper, more intricate, alluring, and encapsulating sounds of the progressive and tech house sub-genres, thanks to labels such as Guerrilla Records, Hard Hands, Soma and of course Stress Records.
As avid followers of progressive and tech house will know, the genres demand an attention to detail that verges on the truly obsessive, and its this fastidious attention to detail that ultimately led to Darren joining forces with the like-minded Chris Scott in the studio.
