Introducing Arp Deco and his debut release, Introspect. Hailing from Sydney, Australia Arp Deco creates music dosing out a thick helping of synth, hypnotic/glitzy synth passages and club tight percussion, Arp Deco is on a path to explore a different side of electronic music. A debut release that will turn heads, Introspect is the first of many releases which invites the listener into a world of forward-thinking music with a sophisticated edge.
Introspect revolves around hypnotic, yet glitzy, synth passages supported by a fuzzy and slightly detuned bass with tight percussion driving the rhythm. Being the product of isolation and lockdown, the song is about self-reflection and the examination of one’s own thoughts and feelings.
For years I have wanted to create a project that explores a different side of electronic music – music that can be energetic and club friendly, yet pensive and relaxing. In the wake of Sydney’s lockdown, Arp Deco was born, and I was able to spend the time needed to get the project off the ground.
After several demos and experimentation with various sound design, composition, and production ideas, ‘Introspect’ emerged as my first single. I composed/produced the song in my bedroom in between countless Teams calls whilst working from home. I reached out to Cirrus Audio in Sydney who added the final mixing and mastering touches to the song. This process really elevated the depth of the song and gave each element its own space. – Arp Deco
