The Arcitype Drops New Single Featuring Reks & Ruste Juxx!

5 years ago this month, September 25th 2012 to be exact, The Arcitype and Ruste Juxx released their collaborative album "V.I.C. Victorious Impervious Champions" on AR Classic Records / Duck Down Music. As a relative unknown in 2012, it was the Arcitype's most visible project and an introduction to the industry of hip hop.

"V.I.C." paired The Arcitype's musical sample free production with Juxx's Crown Heights charisma and street knowledge. The results took both artists into new territories with songs and videos for "Rock To The Rhythm" and "Stand Strong" as some of the most memorable.

Reflecting on that experience, The Arcitype had this to say:

"Ruste was one of the first people that heard something in me as a producer and gave me a shot. One song turned into a full album at our first session. I’ve put a whole lot of music out since then, but this was one of those moments where I can say someone took a chance in me, and I won’t ever forget it. Much love to all the fans this project earned me. I appreciate all the support you’ve shown me over the years. "

Now in celebration of the beginning, The Arcitype releases a brand new song with Ruste Juxx and Reks, "Bang Bang". Raw and unapologetic, "Bang Bang" features a melodic Reks hook, fire spiting Juxx verses and signature Arc knock! Five years later the duo is still making noise and reminding everyone how the phony are dealt with...

Esh & Arc Release New Video!

Esh & Arc have released a new visual for “The Other Shoulder” featuring DJ Slipwax. Director and editor, Xander Hayes takes a classic performance approach to the video, and gives it a slight twist with some detailed attention to color, accenting the black and white video with hints of red throughout. Esh & Arc’s performance paired with the editing style match the dark, driving nature of the song. The echoed chorus of “Angels don’t sing, let’s clip their wings” is paired with imagery of blood-drenched angelic statues. A unique and notable detail of the video is showcased in the final minute or so of the song, when the video transitions into a VJ-controlled section cut together by DJ Slipwax, matching the electrifying scratches he contributes to the song. "The Other Shoulder" has been premiered by the fine people at GoodMusicAllDay, click below to watch the video!
