We’ve been waiting a release on Versatile from our long time friend Ark. It’s now done with this “Street House EP“, an ode to B-Boy house. Emba Anthem, with its samples from a cult west coast 90’s hip hop band, and the bewitching Nuark, which mixes deepness, sensuality and odd funky groove, but inna Ark unique fashion. Big shout outs Paris kids!
