Since his discovery in 2006, French DJ/Producer Arno Cost, quickly moulded his reputation into one of the scenes most promising young talents. With his musical sensibilities residing within the realms of electronica, disco and house, Arnos’ production and remix work has attracted praise from some of dance music’s most formidable figures, including David Guetta, Axwell, Avicii, Tiesto, Pete Tong and Sebastian Ingrosso to name a few.
Arno Cost’s talent has stemmed from exposure to music at an early age. Brought up on a diet of pop music, Italo-Disco and later, the innovations of the seminal ‘French Touch’ such as Daft Punk, Arno’s appreciation turned into creation as he took his hand to production in 1999.
Fast forward to January 2006 and the fruits of Arno’s labour paid off after being signed to Serial Records in France. Later that year, Arno dropped a remix of Greyster’s ‘Under the Fuse of Love’, which was immediately picked up by Pete Tong and reached no.2 in the UK club charts, remaining a favourite for many weeks. Throughout that year he remixed tracks for the likes of Antoine Clamaran, David Guetta, Laidback Luke and pushed his own solo production ventures on imprints such as Cr2 and Kontor.
Arno’s name was lavished with a great deal more attention in 2006 following the release of his first smash hit, ‘Magenta’ which he produced alongside Arias. Pete Tong and Axwell’s respect for the elegantly crafted track was no secret, and with an arresting rework from Dave Spoon, ‘Magenta’ became something of a DJs secret weapon all over the world. At ‘The Amsterdam Dance Event’ it was the most played tune that year!
Arno’s next Cr2 release was 2007’s ‘Apocalypse’ with Norman Doray; a heady concoction of sweeping house rhythms and thumping beats. The single was a favourite with Eric Prydz and Steve Angello and was given a tough rework by Sebastian Leger. With no doubt as to the potency of Arno’s partnership with production buddy Norman Doray, the status of France’s answer to the Swedish House Mafia is one increasingly linked to the Parisian contingent.
Since then Arno has been called on to remix many artists like Moby, Zoo Brazil, David Guetta and Laidback Luke once again.
In 2008, Arno collaborated with Sweden’s John Dahlback and released electronic smash ‘Souvenir’ and ‘Golden Walls’. Both received glowing reports and support from the likes of Axwell and Steve Angello.
Arno’s status as a major international DJ gained serious momentum having played shows at The Sydney Freedom Dance Festival and a Cr2 night at Matter in London. Most notably in late 2008, the famous radio station RADIO FG chose Arno to mix its new compilation CLUB FG.
Over the past few years, in line with a busy schedule, touring all over the world, Arno Cost has consistently delivered quality music. His tracks "Cyan" (Cr2), "Lise" (Refune), "Lifetime" (Spinnin), "Head Up" (Size) and most recently, "NightVenture" (Size) shows Arno's ability to produce different kinds of music bringing along heavy doses of melodic vibes and peak-time moments.
