Every now and then a tune comes along that smacks us in the face and makes us stop what we are doing. Arkana’s new one, Revealing Light, is one such tune. It opens with these gorgeous, sweeping strings and powerful piano chords, before these simple synth stabs that lead us into the crisp drums. It’s a fantastic piece of music and the switch-up after the breakdown is masterfully done. It’s dubstep (or “power sound” as he calls it), but with a little more thought and melody than we’ve grown accustomed to from today’s producers. It’s also a free download, so get it while it’s hot.
Arkana has a few other tunes like this over on his Soundcloud that are well worth checking out.
