Producer, DJ & Graphic Designer
Somewhere deep in the Surrey hills, armed only with a laptop, a few choice records and a bucket load of creativity and ambition Peter Goebel AKA Arkaik began his career within drum and bass.
Fast forward twelve years and Arkaik has since become a pioneer for the stripped back and half time sound. As an original, core artist for the infamous label Diffrent Music, Arkaik saw his first major release 'Stress Relief/Second Bass' in mid 2010 gaining him instant recognition and a fearsome reputation as a force to be reckoned with. For Arkaik, this was just the start of a long and prosperous partnership with the crew at Different Music, they went on to release a further three EPs from Arkaik alongside features on various LP’s, all to critical acclaim.
During his success with Diffrent Music, Arkaik managed to propel his status further when he won the Octane & DLR remix competition hosted by the mighty Dispatch Recordings.
Never one to play by the rules, in 2013 Arkaik teamed up with fellow experimentalist Axon to create a sound that was so far removed from the normal constraints of drum and bass that it instantly caught the attention of Proximity Recordings head honcho Basher. Their collaborative track ‘Alchemy’ became the title track for the EP and paved the way for further successful Proximity releases.
2014 proved to be an incredibly busy year for Arkaik. After being approached by both Skutta Records and IMLTD, he put together a collection of highly successful remixes including his rework of Pennygiles - Untold Stories. After gaining the support of a vast number of artists Arkaik made the bold decision to take a six month hiatus in order to concentrate on DJing at some of the biggest festivals in Europe and finally, to emigrate to Shanghai, China.
Since then Arkaik has been busier than ever. In just a few short months he has completed a sell out tour of China, received musical accolade for his remixes of Red Powder by Bredren, Gravis by Kalm & Spindall and finalised his hotly anticipated, debut release on Flexout Audio entitled “My Love EP”. Fortunately for us, the fun doesn’t stop there, Arkaik has since completed a number of exciting collaboration projects with the likes of Amoss, Dave Owen and Hyroglics, all set for release mid-late 2015.
As a DJ, Arkaik has a formidable reputation. After spending over a decade perfecting his craft Arkaik has played at some of the most prestigious events around the globe including Outlook Festival, Boomtown, Shibui and Innovation in the Sun. Whilst residing in the UK, Arkaik frequently played at a number of prolific drum and bass events in and around Europe including Flexout Audio, Nurtured Beats, Genesis and Origins. Since relocating to Shanghai, Arkaik embarked on a highly successful tour of China, playing sell out shows in cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Chongqing and festivals in Wulong. Upon his arrival in China, Arkaik quickly became a resident for ‘Sweatshop’ one of China’s most prestigious and long standing drum and bass events.
