Much like Markus Schulz, Canada’s Arnej has too joined the dark side of trance and embraced the Unicorn Slayer code. Last year he revealed a deep and riveting new compilation series called Musical Evolution that showed just how dark his sound can go with tunes from the likes of KhoMha, Leon Bolier, and his own alter ego 8 Wonders.
Arnej recently struck me over the head with a hard-hitting new EP out on Coldharbour Red that features the powerful big-room banger True Lies. From beginning to end, this track charges on with ruthless drums and barbaric basslines, leaving an enormous wake of destruction in its path. Another massive tune included on the release is We Unite (video below), which has a more progressive feel to it and was originally featured on the Los Angeles ’12 compilation mixed by Markus Schulz.
