Straight out of Manchester, Arta first appeared on the Dubtribu Records compilation Deep Dub Inside 2017 with his track 'Not So Vanilla'. Now he's back with his debut EP 'Rambo', and just like its namesake, it's not to be messed with. These five refreshingly percussive and melodic tracks with their meticulously crafted elements and textures all work together to create the perfect example of what is real forward thinking dubstep. From the soft piano melodies and distorted midranges of 'Check' to the rich rolling rhythms of 'Rambo', Arta's musical diversity shines through as he delivers a truly hefty slice of bass weight.
“One of our favourite dubstep imprints returns here as the Dubtribu camp bring forward the earth shattering sounds of Arta for a five track special project. We kick off with the powerhouse distortion of 'Rambo' with its heavyweight electro leads, before rolling into the spookier, more soundscape driven design of 'Check'. Next up, the stuttered electronic bass stabs of 'Cryogenesis' before landing on the robotic war machine known as 'Stompa'. We then finish up the EP with 'Communications Dub', a perfectly swung ride through sub bass and space, driven by its quirky rhythms and subtle percussive movements.”
