Basic005 - arQer - Locomoco/Squalor


On Monday 3rd of October, Basic 005 is fully released worldwide on vinyl format. The tune is by up and coming artist Mark Galitos under his DnB alias arQer.

A Dj / Producer since 1999, arQer hails from Houston, Texas and has been released on many acclaimed drumandbass labels such as Renegade Hardware, Architecture, DSCI4, Outbreak, Monkey Bizness and Basic to name a few. A trained percussionist, Mark holds a B.A. and an M.F.A. from UMKC Conservatory of Music and the California Institute of the Arts respectively.

His current work is receiving regular acclaim from home Dj’s in the USA and DnB’s homeland UK, but also more diverse areas such as New Zealand, South Africa and Hungary. arQer’s sound is all aboot the intricacies of techy-styled drumwork and post-millennial angst coming into shape through the distorted lfo’s and hysteric arpeggiators.

The current release on Basic continues the labels aim to develop emerging artists and concentrate on complex dance-floor neurobeats.
