We really like your mix. What’s in there and why?
We signed a track called 10k Favour to Arcade Pony, a London based label run by Punx Soundcheck. The mix is a selection of tracks from a label comp. Jon the label boss asked us to to give it the A&M rub and that’s basically it.. not done something like that before so it was interesting and a challenge as you’re limited to what you can play with…
Under Arveene & MiSK we’ve seen one single already. Are you in the studio? What can we expect next?
We’ve actually had a few now… Hells Bells on Gung Ho! recordings did well for us, Love & Lust on Plant NYC, Love Money Music Body on MofoHifi, and next up is 10K Favour on Arcade Pony. We’ve just signed 3 tracks to Mason’s Animal Language imprint, and another to Gash Digital. We’re in the studio almost every day, so you can expect more sexual electronic music.
What are your plans for the summer / rest of 2011?
Working on more A&M music, remixes , gigging and getting out as possible. We’ve a number of collaborations in the pipeline and we’re also working with some recording artists as producers. Gig wise we have various dates around Europe coming up including a We Love Space for Rock Nights on Sunday August 21st in Ibiza. We also have some dates booked at various festivals in Ireland & the UK. Also there’s a UK & Ireland Tour happening in October/November too…
Who’s on your radar? Who do you recommend?
We’re big fans of Zombie Nation, Julian Bashmore, Ado, Dr. Gonzo, NT89, In Flagranti, Tag Team Terror, Light Year, The Finger Prince…
Also we’ve been listening to a lot of 80′s electro and acid.. Virgo, Farley Jack Master of Funk, Hot Mix 5, Strafe Armando, Pierre’s Fantasy Club, Phuture, Fast Eddie, Walter Gibbons, Imperial Brothers, Newcleus… so you can probably expect an acid flavour to some of the newer A&M works…
