Originally active in 2003-2004 as an abstract dance-oriented offshoot of Warp, Arcola marked its relaunch (just shy of its 15th birthday) as a ltd 12-inch imprint that uses the format to explore the spaces where contemporary electronic music meets 'club music' in 2018 and beyond.

Last seen performing alongside many of the Rephlex, Planet Mu, Bangface and I Love Acid all-stars inc. Mu-ziq, Luke Vibert, Venetian Snares, Ceephax, Posthuman and co. The Doubtful Guest aka Libby Floyd was one of the most prominent and important artists operating on the fringes of the arguably golden age of breakcore, when the scene splintered into acid, electro and hardcore she cut a deep and deadly six-track LP that reflected each side of this sound. The intervening years since her last known commercially available recordings have seen her musical output limited to a wealth of friends and co-conspirators only, with no new music from The Doubtful Guest seeing the light of day in ten long years, until now.

The Doubtful Guest resurfaces following a decade of silence since her tear-out jungle/gabba LP Acid Sauna was released on Planet Mu circa 2008, Voyage To Blacklantis finds the elusive producer crossing into new worlds that resembles a cross between the aquatic exploration of Drexciya and the mid 90's ghost in the machine ambience of the Coil vs ELpH project. The entire recording was written while channelling the underwater currents that surround London's New River Studios.
