Arcane Revolver is a new, driving electronica project from Brisbane producer Josh Jett. Utilising speech samples, rising synthlines, big drops, and powerful bass, the songs draw you in slowly and build dynamic sonic landscapes. Echoing artists such as Diplo, The Only, & Hermitude, and featuring electro-pop singer Michelle Xen, this new track “Beautiful & Evil” grinds and whirs to an epic crescendo of hands-in-the-air danciness.
With over 10 000 plays on Soundcloud & 25 000 on YouTube and already on the airwaves of taste-maker radio stations, triple j (Sound Lab), FBi (Syd), 4zzz (Bris), SYN (Melb), and ABC National (Sound Quality), expect to see Arcane Revolver hitting the touring circuit throughout 2012 & 2013.
"Solid production, smooth...& as many other S words I can think of. "
Fenella Kernebone, triple j
"The glitch, trip-hop and bass influences are obvious and it’s a combination that works – just ask one of the 50,000-plus people to give one of his Soundcloud tracks a spin."
"This has a really cool build up to it. Fitting somewhere between Mezzanine-era Massive Attack and some particularly thick Dr Dre beats."
Dave Ruby Howe, triple j
"French by Arcane Revolver. All the hooks and samples it takes to get a crowd moving"
