Dancefloor powerhouse group Arches (Seba Vandevoorde A.K.A. Moonlight Matters and Jochen from Sound Of Stereo) have teamed up with R&B singer Karen Harding for their latest single. It’s released soon via Potion, The Magician’s record label, and follows on from late-2014’s There’s A Place. This storming slice of soulful House is called New Love.
Skippy Garage beats feed through this exuberant slab of contemporary HousePop. Revelling in the kind of deep, subby, bass you would normally associate with UK output, the Arches Duo deliver a warm summertime jam that pairs resounding piano with the big and booming low end. Harding’s huge vocal delivery, peppered with a Pop twang, keeps the energy of the track at a constant high. This one is a surefire summer hit.

Dance supergroup Arches (Seba Vandevoorde A.K.A. Moonlight Matters and Jochen from Sound Of Stereo), who you may remember from their interpretation of Whitney Huston’s Not Right But It’s Okay, It’s Okay are about to unleash their proper début single, There’s A Place. the single come backed with a reMix from none other than Russ Chimes. So I expect we’ll all like it quite a lot indeed. That’s the Chimes guarantee.
A pumping House track with deep overtones, Chimes whips up a dancefloor frenzy with this one. Sparing no funky expense, the reMix builds on a an infectious bass hook, ploughing through the track like a groovy steamroller dragging complex purcussion and and mantra vocal in it’s wake. The interplay between the keys and the bass creating new melodies along the way. Another killer effort from Russ.
♫ Arches – There’s A Place (Russ Chimes reMix)
Arches début single, There’s A Place, is due out in6th April.
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.
