ARKTKT Links With Naomi Banks On New Sizzler ‘Mantis’

It's a stellar collaboration...

ARKTKT is rapidly emerging as one of the most sought after producers in North America, having worked on tracks with Fetty Wap, YBN Mixtape, and Ethan Bortnick.

His own work, though, is moving in a quite singular lane, absorbing elements of hip-hop and left-field electronics to make a solitary journey.

Drawing others into the gravitational pull of his music mission, ARKTKT links with Jamz Supernova's stellar imprint Future Bounce for new single 'Mantis'.

A stellar return, the neon-soaked production is offset by a humble, evocative vocal from R&B chanteuse Naomi Banks.

Out shortly, it's a brilliant collaboration, with their mutual approaches – so distinct in themselves – coming together superbly well.

ARKTKT comments: “I sent ('Mantis') to a few great vocalists but Naomi Banks really made it her own. Things happen for a reason and I’m glad we were able to digitally collaborate to knock out this banger together…”

For her part, Naomi Banks adds: “I wrote ('Mantis') about the difficulty of being in a comfortable relationship. You’re happy and settled but when there is so much temptation around you, it’s somehow unhappy and unsettling at the same time.”
