It never ceases to amaze me that in just over a decade, a sound that grew from garage and grime in South London is being both produced and listened to all over the world. But it also amazes me that one such island, similar but also very different to the UK, is a consistent breeding ground for truly brilliant dubstep artists.

Arkotypes are a production and DJ outfit, following in the well-trodden footsteps of NZ dubstep artists making a name for themselves overseas and across the internet. Robert and Johannes are originally from Europe (Epsom and Hamburg to be precise), but have been based in the shaky bass haven that is Christchurch, New Zealand for over two years. They focus on producing sub- and percussion-driven dubstep and have gained support from some of the most well-respected musicians in the genre.

BunZer0, Perverse, Content, Kursk, Syte and a fair few others have been spinning dubs coming out of the Arkotypes studio - with the young duo picking up a release on Optimus Gryme Recordings (with many more expected in the future). Arkotype's mixing skills and selection of exlcusive music has seen them support the likes of Youngsta, Tunnidge, Distance, Truth, Artificial Intelligence and many more across New Zealand.

I can guarantee that, if the deep and dark dubstep sounds are what you're into, you'll be hearing a lot more from Arkotypes in the coming months.
