“Of the hundreds of up-and-coming producers we’ve worked with over the past four years of FatKidOnFire, there have been a number we’ve known have been destined for great things. Compa, Perverse, Wayfarer, Kaiju, The Illuminated, Chord Marauders – just a few of the artists we’ve worked with who have gone on to rise through the ranks of bass music. When we discovered a 17 year old Parisian late last year, a producer who’d only been making music six months or so, we knew Argo was another artist to add to our must-watch list.
“We’ve been working with Arnaud since the summer of 2013, after hearing Asylum (a tune that’s seen support from a number of respected tastemakers including Chestplate founder Distance). We’ve followed Argo as he found his feet, helping him create a signature sound that has caught the attention of producers, DJs and fans alike. The young producer has since seen two widely praised releases on Indigo Movement and BASSordeath imprints and a place on Annihilate Audio’s debut compilation – and we’re glad to finally add him to the FKOF roster.
“Argo’s FKOFd007 is one of the finest four track EPs we’ve released in our label’s short history. EP-opener Hundred crackles with intensity, full of soft synth hits backed by razor sharp percussion and a brutal sub. Plan B strips things back to the most necessary ingredients, with a threatening atmosphere to test even the strongest resolve. The third track on Argo’s FKOFd release sees us welcome Living Proof to the family for the first time; with the Leeds-based producer putting his stamp on Argo’s superb Asylum. FKOFd007 closes with Seek; a dangerously minimal roller that signals Argo is ready to start ascending the ranks…”
