Space Review: Arp Deco – “Introspect”
Welcome to Space!
Today, we are going to introduce you to a fresh new artist directly from Sydney Australia. We going to talk about Arp Deco and dive into his debut release Introspect.
This single is the result of the isolation felt by the producer during the lockdown. The song reflects the artist’s thoughts and feelings during that period, and the title gives us a hint on how to set our minds during our listening.
Instantly after pressing play to the track, we are welcomed by a cryptic and glitchy intro, it is now hard to know what to expect next. Suddenly, we hear some future-based inspired synths, that slightly change and land in a more Synthwave/80s area. In this moment we feel at home, that’s definitely our cup of tea. Soon after we have an arrogant bass coming into play, his fuzziness attracts our ear’s attention, and he’s the one together with the drums that make our head go up and down. The dark vibes introduced by the bass are then balanced out by the catchy chorus. Especially thanks to the main lead synth, which definitely reminds us of some Tycho latest production.
The catchy lead synth will easily get stuck in your mind, we can easily associate this type of sound with big names like Daft Punk.
The detailed-refined sound design definitely plays a big role in keeping us involved from start to end. The arrangement and mix result simple but extremely effective. A composition choice not easy to follow and Arp Deco surely did a great job arrangement-wise.
The kick keeps building a be more present towards the end, introducing some dubstep vibes integrated with trap hit hats that give a nice groove to the ending of the song.
So many music inspirations and nuances in this debut single. We have high hopes for Arp Deco’s future. He certainly knows what he is doing and we can easily listen to a whole album full of songs like this single.
