PREMIERE: Arkajo - Deadlock [BROR Records]

by Zach Huenink

In a few days time, Swedish label BROR Records will be releasing their 8th offering into the world. This one being a compilation and featuring tracks by label-head DJ Lily, Jor-El, Mountain Range, and our focus for today; Arkajo.

The name should sound familiar, as we’ve featured a few of his tracks, and mixes in past Fiction Lab posts. This go around is none the different, as Nils Krogh aka Arkajo has created a low-slung, heater of a track that stays true to the brooding nature of his Arkajo alias. Haunting vocals, coupled with a tribalistic percussion and melancholic pads give the track an edge that is greatly welcomed in our neck of the woods.
