One artist that has a direct impact on the developing bass scene in Belgium is Arne De Meyer, more commonly known for his ARtroniks pseudonym. The Ghent-based producer started experimenting with synths and drum computers from his father back in ‘06, which quickly led to his first collection of tracks. His early concepts of techno / house / down-tempo slowly evolved into his now innovative and accredited dubstep sound.
Nearly a decennium later, he now runs a fortnightly show on the well-respected Sub.FM radio station and earned jaw-breaking releases on Biscuit Factory, Mindstep, Warriorz and Dubtastic. Having played noteworthy events like Tomorrowland, Rotation, DUPLOC and de Jeugdzonde, has given Arne the ability to make headway in the international DJ circuit, including an appearance on the 209th edition of GetDarker TV in 2014.
With now consistent airplay from dons N-Type and BunZer0, it’s safe to say he has become one of the familiar faces of the new-age dubstep scene, showing off his creative take on bass architecture and crooked beat arrangements. ARtroniks continues to unleash high-quality productions that will shake out inner demons, with a bright and positive future ahead of this gifted musician.
