Russian dance music artist Arty returned to his progressive house roots earlier this year and now continues with his latest release ‘Perfect Strangers’. An uplifting track with a drop, big chords and vocals that complement the vibe of the track, the track is, in his own words, “definitely one of my favourite songs I’ve produced this year.”
Tried and tested in several of his shows, this song is a possible step forward for Arty, simply because of the way the melody, arrangement and vocals connect on so many levels.
Arty: “The idea of this record came to me a little bit after my debut album was released. I was playing around with different instruments and melodies, but never finished it and only got back to it randomly last year when I was looking for a new intro track for my DJ sets, something uplifting and powerful. I tested it out on a few of my shows and the reaction of the crowd was incredible.”
2018 has apparently been a record-breaking year for the DJ/producer Artem ‘Arty’ Stoliarov, or Arty. After starting 2018 with his single ‘Sunrise’ going to #2 on US dance radio, he continued with over 17 new releases in just nine months between his own and trance-focused ALPHA 9 projects, including remixes for Skrillex, Above and Beyond, Axwell /\ Ingrosso and Armin Van Buuren, making him #1 in 2018 for most releases by any EDM artist.
Now residing in Los Angeles, he performs at some of the biggest festivals and clubs in the world.
