Arkon Fly return with their second single 'Back Seat', which will be released August 11th via seminal garage label Locked On.
Following the celebratory disco-funk of the original, now comes a heady, floor-ready remix of the track by fellow rising London producer Tieks, akaMark Tieku, who things into DFA-nodding territory, with cascading piano house and masterfully cut up vocals building to the blissful chorus hook.
Arkon Fly are Big Jam and Bixby, a duo of London based multi-instrumentalists, producers and vocalists.
'Back Seat' follows the duo's debut track 'Through The Fire' which saw them enjoy the endorsement of Zane Lowe, Phil & Alice and Rob Da Bank to Toddla T, Mistajam and Nemon on Radio 1 and 1Xtra, and become a regular play on the club and DJ circuit.
'Back Seat' showcases with enhanced gusto the manifold talent and impressive vocal chops of this prodigious duo, with a tour de force of celebratory disco-funk, hook-laden falsetto and sneaking synth bass, coming on like Prince's '1999' updated to present day London.
Locked On were a pillar in the history of UK garage music in the mid 90's, and instrumental in launching artists such as The Streets, Todd Edwards, Artful Dodger and Zed Bias among others. They are delighted to return to represent the most exciting new voices in London underground and club music with the release of Arkon Fly's second single.
