    PIPS025 - Arkist - Summer Shimmer ft. Lee Risdale - forthcoming Apple Pips 4/11/2013

    In a flurry of melodic energy like only he can whip up, Apple Pips mainstay Arkist returns with two assured cuts that perfectly build on the strengths he has always displayed for killer production and mean hooks. While his previous turns for the label “Rendezvous” and “Fill Your Coffee” made a devastating impact when they dropped back in 2011, this new pair of tracks sees one of Bristol’s finest further broadening his sonic palette with a wild array of cues feeding into an undeniably fresh end result.

    “Summer Shimmer” is a synth-heavy throwdown that rests on top of a steady-ticking arpeggio, live guitar chops & a crisp disco beat. Cheeky bass licks only accentuate the funk on the lead in, but it’s all a precursor for the dynamic twists and turns the track whips round, from bittersweet piano chords to snarling filter sweeps, starlit strafes to Moog-ish growls. Both wildly imaginative and utterly instantaneous at the same time, it’s everything you expect of Arkist but rendered in a completely new way.
