Arm In Arm 'Nightfly' Single
Arm in Arm are artists Eliza Jacobs and Luke Moore-Martin. The Melbourne duo is all about creating solidarity through underground house music rooted in deep melodic sounds with soul. It’s with this honest desire to connect that the release of their single Nightfly attracted esteemed veterans Booka Shade to remix and release their timeless single.
Arm in Arm were born in the clubs and festivals of Australia but grew up under the influence of sounds from abroad. With musical exploration and a philosophy of beats bringing people together, Arm in Arm are excited to continue their mission to share their auditory vision with the world.
Meeting in Melbourne, when U.K. born Moore-Martin first moved from London, they instantly connected over their love of music. The two have used their ongoing careers as DJ’s to develop their sound and production knowledge while experimenting with Jacobs’ vocals to forge their unique style.
When Booka Shade discovered Arm in Arm, they were attracted to their refined sound, which evoked unexpected emotional nuances. This is thanks to the alchemy of their influences, which range from techno to Balearic beat, classical, trip-hop and electronica. The German duo offer up their remix of Nightfly contrasting the original by utilising filtered and chopped up vocals, a pulsating low end and an amalgamation of synth blips. Rounding off is the radio version of ‘Nightfly’ which delivers a shorter mix of the original and brings a well refined close to the package.
Nightfly was released on Booka Shade’s label Blaufield Music, subsequently reaching No.5 overall releases on Beatport. The release is currently at Number 82 in the ARIA Club Charts.
Nightfly’s counterpart video providing further advocacy of their discerning innovation on deep-house with elegant reflections of the self fostering profound appreciations of nature’s mystery. Shot by award winning director Ben Gartland of Bengar Films, along with legendary Australian DOP John Wheeler, the duo worked with multi award winning British dance choreographer Wayne Mc Gregor, who arranged exclusive use of hand made masks designed by Moritz Junge, the first use outside of The Australian Ballet. This stellar vision complimented with Nightfly’s modulated top lines, plucky bass line and mesmerising, yet hooky vocals confirms that Arm In Arm are assertive in their dedication to quality.
‘Nightfly’ by ARM IN ARM is out now.
