Belgium duo Arches had their debut single ‘There’s A Place‘ premiered on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show over the weekend, and it has since gone onto rack up an impressive 10,000 plays over the weekend.
What you probably don’t know is Arches is actually Sebastiaan Vandevoorde (Moonlight Matters) and Jochen Sablon (Sound of Stereo).
Having racked up several thousand plays with their rework of Whitney Houston’s ‘It’s Okay’ last year, the duo are preparing to release ‘There’s A Place’ via Columbia Records on April 9.
The single also comes with B-side featuring the talents of vocalist Gustaph (of Hercules and Love Affair fame), and remixes from Russ Chimes and Sinden.
For the track, the duo took inspiration from New Beat, a genre of dance music that was popularised throughout the late 80’s and originated from their homeland, and spliced it with Vandevoorde ubiquitous raspy disco productions for a throughly modern hybrid.
