It’s been quite a while since ARTY last indulged Armada Music with his trailblazing signature sound, but the long-time industry icon and Armada alum is most definitely returning to the label. Almost five years after collaborating with Armin van Buuren on ‘Nehalennia’, ARTY kicks off 2018 with ‘Sunrise’ (feat. April Bender), the first new single of many more to come this year.
Uplifting like the first rays of the morning sun, ‘Sunrise’ is all any dance music fan could ask for. Sporting wonderful chords and an eruptive melody alongside contemplative lyrics and April Bender’s gorgeous vocals, this cut shows that ARTY has been able to step up his game even further and will keep clubbers going till the break of dawn.
ARTY: “It’s important for me to continue making the music I enjoy the most and ‘Sunrise’ definitely falls into that category. It’s both a milestone and an incredibly important track in my career as I get back to my Progressive House roots and I’m extremely excited to officially share it with my fans after successfully sneaking it into my live sets for the past few months.”
Born Artem Stoliarov (or Arty for short), ARTY has been one of electronic music’s most consistent acts in the past ten years. Since starting his career in 2009 at the age of 19, he quickly made waves across the dance music realm, releasing his music on a range of top-tier labels while crafting up crowd-pleasing 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, ARTY continually plays the biggest festivals and clubs in the world (e.g. Ultra, Electric Daisy Carnival, Tomorrowland, Ushuaïa, Amnesia Ibiza, Creamfields), clocks up millions of streams on Spotify on a regular basis and keeps his Trance roots alive via his work under his acclaimed ALPHA 9 moniker. Make no mistake about it; ARTY is one of dance music’s hottest acts of today and about to bring the heat with some more of his club-invading, playlist-conquering productions, ‘Sunrise’ included.
