After giving rise to tracks such as ‘Sunrise’ and ‘Rain’, Russian DJ/producer Arty releases his latest production, ‘Couldn’t Be Better’. Telling a story of heartbreak conquered and time-healed wounds, the track “was inspired by everyone who’s been through a tough relationship, struggling to overcome it, but finally finding happiness either on their own or with a new person in their life.”
Arty: “I think this is the most summer-ish song I’ve ever made and the sounds complement this feeling. It’s a bit different from the music I’ve released earlier this year, and the reason is because the shape of the song helps to translate the message in the best possible way. And even though the lyrics are a bit melancholy, it’s still a positive song that will make people feel good.”
Born Artem Stoliarov (or Arty for short), after breaking into the scene in 2009 at the age of 19, he began to turn heads across the dance music realm, releasing his music on a range of labels while churning out remixes for the likes of Halsey (‘Hurricane’ – over 47 million streams), OneRepublic, London Grammar, Above & Beyond, Porter Robinson and Years & Years.
Now residing in Los Angeles, he performs at various festivals and clubs including Ultra, Electric Daisy Carnival, Tomorrowland, Ushuaïa, Amnesia Ibiza and Creamfields, has millions of streams on Spotify and keeps his trance roots alive by churning out singles under his Alpha 9 moniker.
