“the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

"toto, i've a feeling we're not in kansas anymore."
― dorothy gale

it's been a long time coming, but arkhive music is exceedingly proud to present our first official exclusive release:


a smooth-flowing collection of 8 powerful and innovative pieces of music from some of the masters of the craft:
• Sensient (Rhythm Nectar remix)
• Shadow Fx & Yeti
• Autonomech
• Legacy
• Tristan Boyle
• Minimal Criminal & slytrance
• Jigsaw
• Zombie Apocalypse

compiled by slytrance
mastering by INTERPULSE
arktwork by jenna-lee forsyth | additional input by manifestiny

tales to move both mind and body.



with excitement comes the tendency to jump the gun, but too much caution tends towards inaction. so what to do? often in life you can see the finish line and it looks like a straight shot from here to there, but sometimes it pays to stray from the path and make your own.
exploration is innovation.

"you forget, because you're so busy going from a to z, that there's... hmm ... 24 letters in between..."

“music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without.”
― confucius, the book of rites

"life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated."
― confucius

ARKHIVE Cairns, Australia

arkhive is a place built to house the weird and powerful artefacts that exist at the non-dimensional point where imagination and realisation intersect. in a time where ancient biology is fusing with digital technology, we find vibrations summoned from the realm of thought by the deepest of dreamers.
welcome to the imagination made manifest.
