Today, Arp Frique returns to Rush Hour with no less two new releases: 'Radio Verde', a compilation of rare Cape Verdean dancefloor diamonds compiled together band member Americo Brito, and a new record called 'Improvised Suites For Analog Machines', an improvised tribute to some of the most influential synthesizers of the 70s and 80s, performed and composed together with another family member, keyboardist Erik Ritfeld. Improvised Suites For Analog Machines will be performed live at Le Guess Who? as a four-piece band, complete with a host of these analog machines live and a light show in the works. Listen to both albums below. Improvised Suites For Analog Machines by Arp Frique & Erik (Keysie) Ritfeld "Each suite is named after the synthesizer we used, limiting ourselves to one synth per song, accompanied by the Elka Drummer One rhythm box and reverb/delays from the Roland Space Echo. These improvised suites give only a small insight into the beauty of these machines from the past." - Arp Frique Arp Frique performs at Le Guess Who? 2019 on Thursday, 7 November.
