Soltan, whose signature production style has dazzled the electronic music community in recent years, and RIOT, a virtuosic Israeli bass music duo, are no strangers to writing dubstep hits. "Arabian Knights" pays homage to both artists' Middle Eastern heritage.
Akin to a classic warrior's victory anthem, the roaring single features a cascade of sounds from the traditional Zurna—a double reed wind instrument played in central Eurasia, Western Asia and parts of North Africa—as well as Turkish strings and hypnotic bell patterns. "Arabian Knights" eventually goes scorched earth, culminating in a juddering drop replete with blistering sound design and delivering a ruthless dubstep banger fit for the mainstage.
