ARTY – Velvet
When the legendary ARTY puts out new music, it is obligatory as a fan of dance music to listen. The Russian DJ/Producer continually shows the world what he is capable of in the electronic community, racking up enormous accomplishments year after year. With releases on Anjunabeats, Revealed Recordings, STMPD, Interscope, Armada and tons more – his expertise as a producer never fails to shine through. ARTY has built his international following by being known for mixing his trademark big-room anthems with downtempo electronica, showcasing his gift for translating club-focused sounds to the pop & radio format.
This time, the Russian prodigy crafts yet another masterpiece with his latest single, ‘Velvet,’ which was included on a newly formed compilation called Ninjawerks, curated by the viral-induced gamer; Ninja. This rare collection of releases features some incredible EDM hall-of-fame destined artists such as Alesso, 3lau, Tiesto, Kaskade, & more. Bringing his usual progressive-like sound, ARTY grabs fans in the feels right away in this masterful creation of electronic soundscapes that the budding producer is so widely known for. Pulsating basses, dreamy plucks and distant vocal cuts bring listeners right into the anime-style portrait that he seemingly aimed to portray in the studio with this one. The drop is nothing short of what is expected of ARTY, as he progresses with the perfectly written top line and immaculate sound selection that almost seems to leap off the page.
With an already massive 2018 under his belt, ARTY shows no signs of slowing down in the coming year. With his progressive-trance alter alias, ALPHA 9 going full force and thriving as well – year 2019 looks to be as promising as ever.
