Catalog #: CW 001LP
The Colorful World Of Arp Frique is the exotic and super funky debut album of Niels Nieuborg, aka Arp Frique. The debut follows his very well-received debut release on Rush Hour (RHSTORE JAMS11, 2018). Pulsating New York City style live disco vibes, interwoven with both Caribbean and Cape Verdean sounds, are themes throughout the record with danceability always guaranteed and a healthy finishing touch of weirdness present across most tracks. First single "Nos Magia" was shortlisted for Track of the Year 2017 at Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Awards and has been given airplay by BBC Radio 6 Music, BBC Radio 1, and NTS whilst club DJs Antal and Hunee have all supported the track in their sets. The Arp Frique alter ego is a reference of course to two things Nieuborg clearly appreciates in music: firstly, the sound of the Arp synths and secondly, by referring to Chic's "Le Freak" -- he is also showing love to the genre of disco.
