With such a sophisticated sound, it's hard to believe that Nicholas Arvantis, aka Shagabond, is just eighteen years old. The Canadian producer has already built a steady following in the UK and earned accolades from dance duo Bondax, who featured his track "Coral Soup" on their 2014 compilation album Bondax and Friends.

The Waterloo-born artist's latest track, "Miraj", is the first of six songs included on Exhume Music's collaborative selection, About You.

"I started making this track by experimenting with an arpegiator; it's easiest to write a song by beginning with something new," says Shagabond. The result is a laid back, bouncy jam infused with lush, melodic synths and vocal samples.
