US pop star Pharrell Williams and Dutch DJ Martin Garrix popped him on their playlists. And Swedish vlogger pewdiepie often has his music playing during gaming clips. It’s promotion that money can’t buy & thanks to these big name fans, Perth’s Timothy Arnott has amassed over 27 million streams across DSPs, and syncs with American Eagle, Ripcurl, HBO and Netflix for the handful of electronic songs released under his Ukiyo moniker. The 23 year old multi-instrumentalist and producer produces electronic music that blends across hip-hop, EDM and classical motifs that create an atmosphere that’ll take you anywhere from a road trip to the dance floor.
Ukiyo stepped on the radar with the release of his debut 'Calling' EP, with each of the four tracks dabbling in their own infectious production techniques and sound. 2018 brought new highs with the chart-topping ‘Something Like This’ and the accompanying ‘Fantasy’ EP, which launched a national headline tour, followed by 2019’s 8 track ‘Ukiyo Mixtape, Vol. 1’.
