Ark, aka Addy from Singapore, started his days collecting and playing with vinyl records and was a big fan of Platipus Rec., Flying Rhino Rec., Dragonfly Rec. His Dj roots go way back in 1996, flashback to the Trance,Goa-Trance underground scene. With old-school artists influence such as Man With No Name, X-Dream, Slinky Wizard, Art Of Trance (Platipus Rec.) Union Jack (Platipus Rec.) Quietman (PlatipusRec.)
This became Ark’s Djing foundation for years to come. After some solid years, Ark stopped following the trance scene and moved on to Tribal Tech House in 2002. Keen on exploring further, he was amazed by the Gili Air Space Bar, a discovery in the psychedelic sound of trance on that peaceful island. Somewhere along LombokIndonesia, a secret island party, which brought him his first psyCDs from Purple Hexagon Records. And Ark has been digging thelush psychedelic sounds ever since.
In 2013, he joined the collective, Free Earth. And together with Free Earth and Om Project, Ark has organized underground sessions around Singapore, where more adventures await. Also aregular Dj for the annual Burning Island festival, do check that outin the serene Gili Islands.
Ark’s experience with sound and music continued the adventure for exploration. Actively playing his sets with a smooth and steady vibe for the dancefloor. A versataile Dj, Ark enjoys both morning and night sounds. Be it clear melodies or a twisty nighttime flow, italways transcends a consistent feel. From Groovy Morning Fullon, to Twisted Twilight Fullon. There is a clear feel to his sound. When it’s time to relax, he likes to play Downtempo Psychill too.
