What a year this has been for Russian DJ and producer Arty. After releasing his massive tune ‘Save Me Tonight‘ in late-January, it has intensely been growing in popularity, support and recognition culminating in the present moment. The song has now been crowned the number 1 position on US Dance Radio and simultaneously has been awarded Tune of The Week on Scott Mill’s show on BBC Radio 1.
The Russian prodigy had 2018 as his record-breaking year, becoming the most active EDM artist of the year with an astonishing 20 releases. These tracks reflected his incredible talent showcasing a wide variety of quality music through his iconic Arty sound and his progressive trance-focused ALPHA 9 project. Even his incredibly successful remixes for Skrillex, Above & Beyond, Axwell /\ Ingrosso and Armin Van Buuren did not serve him to reach the top, sitting on the #2 spot on U.S. dance radio with his jaw-dropping single ‘Sunrise’.
Just a year was enough for Artem ‘Arty’ Stoliarov. Being described by the artist himself as ‘the best song he’s ever produced‘, among mentioned accomplishments, ‘Save Me Tonight’, has already surpassed the barrier of the 15 million streams, it has broken into the U.K. Shazam Top 200 and was immediately added to the top of Spotify’s hugely popular Mint playlist upon release, indulging the playlist’s 5.5 million followers.
Now residing in sunny Los Angeles, Arty is a frequent performer at the biggest festivals and clubs in the world (Ultra, Electric Daisy Carnival, Tomorrowland, Ushuaïa, Amnesia Ibiza, Creamfields). Clocking up millions of streams on Spotify and Apple Music, it’s difficult to predict what’s next for this exquisite producer. What seems obvious is that he’s nonconformist and he’ll deliver more even better material and quite frankly after ‘Save Me Tonight‘ this is exciting news.
