Raleigh’s very own electronic record label DENMARK drops its first split EP + 7″ on FIRST SATURDAY (4.Sept!) at AHPEELE STUDIO (remember last year’s Hood Internet extravaganza? Thought so.)
The Biters + Thien
Get ready to dance my friends, but if you know us, the party doesn’t stop there. In addition to our artists and friends merkin’ it, we will be blowing your minds a smørrebrød of visuals, graff writing, a food truck and other surprises that you can only see under the midnatssol.
Also, their 7″s are right off the press, so buy a limited edition (300) records before they are gone.
Denmark ONE features soulful electro-pop from Atlanta-based ARNHAO, dub-centric beats from Raleigh, NC’s HOLYGRAILERS, and a remix by HIDDEN CAT

Imagine what could be accomplished if fleeting carnal pursuit was replaced with scholarship and creative enterprise. But were this the case, imagine the scientific, literary, and artistic vanguard we’d also be without… Atlanta-based ArnHao (Andrew Hamlet + Arturo “Trizz” Holmes) share a similar story. Featuring shimmering synthesizers, pulsing bass and stargazing falsettos, ArnHao take listeners into a celestial wonderland of mythological circumstance where treasure-filled caverns, warm igloos, tempting goddesses, and flying bicycles abound. Nothing is quite as it seems.
Downtempo beatshiek Nikhil Shah aka Holygrailers blends sparse samples of jazz and soul music to create balmy compositions that leave you as woozy as an Ambien-fueled sextravaganza. His first single “Rosa” opens with sensual vocals and a shuffling rhythm section that mingles tenderly placed piano chords with twitching fingersnaps and rimshots. The piece winds down with slow-fading washes of gently pulsating bass and synthesizer, leaving gauzy and debonair the best words to describe Holygrailer’s haze of electronic beat-making as “Rosa” smothers you into a warm, blissful coma.
