Arctor aka Tom Livingston is a talented DJ/Producer hailing from Glasgow, UK. Producing high tempo electro and techno with soulful Detroit flavoured sounds. He has been steadily building his catalogue dating back to September 2015 with his first release Genovese EP. Since then he has been releasing not only his own material but also remixing a number of labels.
His talent really shone through for Coincidence recordings as he was selected by them for their debut vinyl release back in July 2017. Here is what the label had to say:
The debut on vinyl of Arctor, pressed on 150 copies only and featuring three original tracks and a remix by Advanced Human (Gynoid Audio).
Arctor appeared on our radar a year or so ago and stands out with his high-BPM, melodic techno blend. Time and time again he has been surprising us as a producer and DJ with amazingly crafted music. So when we decided to do a vinyl-only sublabel, we just couldn’t think of anyone else to do the debut release.
As well as producing quality techno, Arctor also heads up a residency at Glasgow based night Tremors. Every Third Friday of every month in Flat 0/1, Bath Street he joins another resident DSG in the DJ Booth (plus the odd guest DJ or three) to smash out an eclectic mix of House, Techno, Disco and Electro. Previous guests have included: Animal Farm, Missing Persons Club, Max Spittal (Craigie Knowes), Nowicki (Renegades of Funk), Twonko Delerium (Lunacy), Billy Woods (Supermax) and Kyle Robertson (West End Communications).
Tremors was started 5 years ago August 2012 with their 5th Birthday Party in August 2017. With the success of the Tremors night, it only seemed logical that a label of the same name would follow. So in March 2017 Arctor released Memory Gene EP and launched the Tremors imprint.
