sKoOba, Arehouse 

When you step into sKoOba's realm, prepare to be transported to a vaguely otherworldly place that somehow feels familiar. Mostly this is because his work is very reminiscent of video-game music, and most especially so in the upbeat tracks. SKoOba makes no secret of video games being an inspiration, but unlike some artists like Crystal Castles that use identifiable samples from games, this music has a vague not-quite-right feeling, like you've heard it before but can't quite place it. It's like an itch your mind can't quite scratch, and very danceable. Buffalo's Arehouse is a DJ/producer that brings the dub-wub-wub and a healthy dose of house, and if his many mixes on Soundcloud are any indication, he should be laying it down pretty heavy. If ever there was a night to come out and check the drops, this is it.
