RESPECT | Arky Starch – Grow A Plant Riddim

IRIE Trax of the Day | Arky Starch - System Dub

Born and raised in Belgium (Turnhout), Arky Starch is an accomplished bass guitarist who plays guitar and keyboard. He specializes in DUB and REGGAE music.

His artistic journey began at a young age, with his older brother Lowie buying him his first bass guitar in 1994. Membership in various bands followed. During these years, he honed his bass player and musician skills. Along the way, he also collaborated with Heartwash and Yosa (Dub Tales), to name a few. These experiences helped him expand his musical knowledge above and beyond the realms of just bass guitar and composition, harmonization, and the rudimentary components of Roots and Dub. In 2004 Starch began to branch out as an artist, focusing on understanding using software, MIDI, and technology to create complex, intricate music.
