First steps

As a technical interested young guy, Peter started to buy hardware Stuff and lots of records. This special interest in hardware will pay off some years later... Not for nothing he will be announced some years later as best liveact in one of the most popular electronic music magazines!

First success

2001 arkus p. released his first record on Schubfaktor Records. The record was played by numerous djs, for example by dj rush at the Nature One festival, and can still be found in a vast quantity of DJ-mixes. His tracks were significantly involved in paving the way for Hardtechno music in Germany! Then he got to know his friends sven wittekind and Sven Schaller, who picked him up into his agency abstract. So the name of his new family was ABSTRACT! Until late 2004, the amount of releases has risen to more than 30 including labels such as Highball, Definition, Artillery and various other important record companies. Gigs all over Europe as well as in different parts of Germany consequently followed and furthermore, many gigs in overseas were about to come. Then he started to produce together with his new colleague robert natus. The creativity of the two characters flew into the new made tracks... and the result of their hard work together was a track called "Hardcore Salsa" . At this time they didn't know that this track would change their lives...

Hardcore Salsa

First they released the track on Roberts label "Bitshift". In every recordstore the track came in first! Then the two guys decided to release the track on Gango, a sublabel of kontor records, and so the track was sold all over the world.. it was released as Maxi- Cd too. It has to be mentioned that "Hardcore Salsa" even earned a German single sales-charts entry! Furthermore they started a live act together! "Robert Natus and Arkus P" was born!! A lot gigs were played and a TV appearance at VIVA lets everybody know that "Hardcore Salsa" was the top-selling record this year!

Some words made by Arkus P.:

"While I am performing live a certain feeling overcomes me as the mood and the atmosphere of the crowd overwhelms me. This is the reason why I often avoid complicated live-setups. Shortly before the gig I program nothing but a few patterns which I reprogram during performance according to the mood of the crowd... Most of the things happening live are impossible to be reconstructed afterwards."

"Teaming up with Robert will always bring up something very special. Our musical influences and ideas flow seemlessly into each other. We are both very different artist with very different approaches to music production. But when ideas by both of us are combined it always results in something very particular."
