Absentminds with Fantastic Mr Fox & Arkist photo gallery
Mint Club, Leeds
Arkist | Fantastic Mr Fox
The first two absent minds parties confounded even the highest expectations. Back for a third and final bite in 2011, the bass hungry collective return to Mint club once more on November 25th with Arkist and Fantastic Mr Fox the headlining pair.
Apple Pips producer Arkist comes from one of the UK’s beating hearts of bass music, namely Bristol. Working solo or alongside the likes of Immerse boss Kidkut, there’s a smoothness to his sound design which stands him apart from any peers. Fusing dubstep with d&b, dropping in elements of 2-step and more, the man’s polished sound is best described as ‘bass driven electronica’…
Joining him is a fast rising talent already well respected by those in the know. Fantastic Mr Fox is a Manchester based beatsmith with release on lauded labels like Hemlock, as well as remixes for the likes of Untold already in the bag. His style is to melt various nu-school bass forms into his own sizzling concoctions, and everyone from VICE to the Guardian have sung his praises in the last 12 months.
