This is Arches. Arches is a superhero team-up between Seba Vandevoorde A.K.A. Moonlight Matters and Jochen from Sound Of Stereo, which is like a Belgian dream-team. Their début single, Take Me, was débuted on The Magician’s most recent Magic Tape along with another new track, Hurtin’, but this here tune, It’s Okay, is the first from Arches that us general public can get our grubby mitts on.
Taking Whitney Huston’s Not Right But It’s Okay as it’s core, Arches deliver a radical reworking with cut-up, pitched down vocals over a heavy House groove. A gritty bassline, that may owe it’s DNA to Belgium’s New Beat heritage hammers away over a rock solid House beat. With drops and builds in just the right places, for just the right amount of time, this, particularly European, slice of House portends great things from this new collaboration. A slick late-night jam.
Arches début single, Take Me, is due out in November.
