Since it’s launch in 2009, Arcade Pony have steadily built a reputation as one of the most fearless and peerless electronic dance imprints to emerge from the UK. The twelth release from the Arcade Pony stable is “The Fresh Collection” - a compilation of new remixes and tracks that charts where the label has come from and signposts it’s future.
Taking established artists like Natural Born Chillers, Chris Coco, Tronik Youth, and Punx Soundcheck, in the same stride as emerging wunderkind producers Neo Tokyo, Lo Fi Beats, Krucy Darkstar, and Stuff Ya Disco, Arcade Pony’s eclectic musical vision is clearly woven into “The Fresh Collection”.
In addition to their brand new slab of D & B “A1 Sound”, Natural Born Chillers classic “Rock The Funky Beat” gets two exclusive remixes courtesy of rising stars Reset!, and Varimant. New heavyweight Phat Stack cranks recent stormer “Badman” by Punx Soundcheck up a few notches, Re:Raw ruffs up chilled house king Chris Coco, and London disco ingénue Ali Renault ends “The Fresh Collection” on a high with a sublime reworking of Banished To Frigia’s “Alien Choke”... Get ready for a flying start to 2011!
From the depths of a London laboratory comes ARCADE PONY, the label at the bleeding-edge of electronic music. Building on their successful releases with Arcade Pony's big brother Hottwerk Records, John Taylor and Arif Salih (of the infamous Punx Soundcheck/Chanty Poe) are using the new label to bring emerging new discoveries to the forefront and to showcase their own dancefloor-rocking productions.
With a healthy disregard for the boundaries of genre and a mission to bring only the freshest meat to the party, Arcade Pony is one of the foremost labels rewriting the rulebook in 2011.
