Since 1992, Arkatec, otherwise known as Thomas Penton, has been producing progressive house and techno music and in attempt has generated a new direction in EDM. His name, unlike any producer heard of before, came about due to his creation and designs from the ground up.
This year is said to be Arkatec’s “break out year” with three songs being released throughout the months of April and May – Vadim Koks’ “Waterland (Arkatec Remix)” on Dextrous Records, Jason Jollins’ “That Discovery (Arkatec Remix)” on Acute Recordings, and Dr. K & Nii vs. Shiha ft.

This remix done by Arkatec and Anselmo is unlike Arkatec’s previous songs, this one obtaining the swift vocals of Jan Johnston. Arkatec’s signature progressive house and techno sounds encompass the darker melodies as the high beat energy is released through the drop. This song is yet another Beatport Exclusive to be released on May 19, 2014 on Manufactured Music.
