Korg Kaoss Pad This is a pretty iconic piece of kit that has been used by a variety of live electronic artists. It’s essentially a digital fx unit giving you the choice of loads of different effects combined with an XY pad to control the sounds, but it can also be used as a looper which is why it’s popular with live artists. Personally I’ve found a lot of use for it in the studio. I use it to get those extra detailed sounds by running lots of elements of a nearly finished track though it to basically have some fun and record a load of crazy FX sounds. The hands-on experience is always inspir ..read more

From starting out as a one-man team in 2020 to growing to a team of eight in 2024, this isn’t the only growth Abyssal Music is currently going through. The Antwerp-based label is doing a Rampage Showcase, they’re playing Tomorrowland twice, have planned a lot of label showcases, and might throw a label night here and there.

He started up Abyssal Music with a small team, signing tracks ranging from halftime and ..read more

Arcatype – Our Best Music Is When We Start It All Together
UKF
by Sagar Deshmukh

We often talk about the importance of artists being afforded the space to create music organically without having to deal with tight deadlines, but as trite as it may sound the music industry as a whole has become cutthroat. The highly competitive and fast-paced nature of modern-day electronic music almost compels producers to keep churning out releases which in the long run can lead to significant burnouts.  Despite the demands, there are artists that refuse to succumb to the pressure, and drum and bass trio, Arcatype are certainly among them. Coming together in 2015 for their first rele ..read more
