After signing with Future Classic in early 2014, everyone’s favourite club-pup Basenji, aka Sebastian Muecke, finally delivered his highly anticipated first release on the label, ‘Heirloom’.

Described by Australian dance heros The Aston Shuffle as a “smooth, 80’s tinged, disco kind of vibe,” the who’s who of the internet been rapidly tipping to their hat to the new producer, with the likes of Hypetrak, Dancing Astronaught, Stoney Roads, Spotify, Acid Stag, Nylon Mag and Pilerats amongst his most vocal supporters, with the almighty Diplo himself including Arona in his 2016 Best Of BBC Radio1 Mix.
