Famed DJ/Producer and EDM heavyweight Artem ‘Arty’ Stoliarov a.k.a. ARTY continues to surprise the dance world.
Recently hitting #1 on US Dance Radio with his single “Save Me Tonight”, paired with a highly-acclaimed music video released at the same time (directed by Noah Centineo and starring Golden Globe Nominated actress Lily Collins). Both served as a follow up to his single “Sunrise” reaching #2 on US Dance Radio the year prior when he also broke records releasing 20 new songs between his two projects: ARTY, and progressive trance-focused ALPHA 9, including incredible reception for remixes for Skrillex, Above and Beyond, Axwell /\ Ingrosso, and Armin Van Buuren.
Now ARTY is geared up to release some of his greatest works to date, with tours and major festivals set to be revealed for 2020.
ARTY has built an international following mixing his trademark big-room anthems with downtempo electronica year over year, showcasing his gift for translating club-focused sounds to the pop/radio format. With nods to classic trance, Arty continues to produce under the moniker ALPHA 9, and is currently wrapping up a United States tour and special international performances.
Born and raised in Russia amidst its transition from the Soviet Union, Arty grew up studying at a music school until the age of 14. Sweeping changes in the geopolitical landscape resulted in a new generation rooted in curiosity and exploration. Growing up in an environment that questioned tradition, Arty’s passions for music, gaming, and electronics led him to experiment with production equipment and sequencers, cutting his teeth remixing popular sounds from The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers, and The Crystal Method.
Arty’s career began in 2009 at the age of 19, when his passion for producing included emailing demos to his favorite labels, resulting in his first release that same year on Enhanced Progressive (United Kingdom). His raw prodigious talent and the signature quality of his productions quickly set him apart in a crowded arena.
In 2010, Above & Beyond snapped up ‘Rush’ for Arty’s first release on their acclaimed Anjunabeats label, followed by Axwell’s Axtone releasing ‘Trio’ alongside Matisse & Sadko in2011. In just two years, Arty had releases on his two favorite labels, setting the tone for a sharp rise through the industry.
Arty gained even more momentum alongside Armin Van Buuren as part of his 2011 A State Of Trance Episode 500 tour, at the acclaimed Brabanthallen in Amsterdam. Shortly after, Arty released successful tracks on Armind, Spinnin’, Big Beat, Ministry of Sound, and Insomniac, crafting immensely popular remixes for Halsey, OneRepublic, London Grammar, Above & Beyond, Porter Robinson, and Years & Years.
In 2012, Arty moved to Los Angeles and signed with Interscope Records, releasing the single, “Up All Night”, which has since accumulated more than 20 million streams on digital platforms, and was later included in Arty’s highly successful 2015 debut studio album, “Glorious.”
Praise for “Glorious”, with superb songwriting courtesy of some of the industry’s best, came from industry moguls and publications ranging from Your EDM to Complex Magazine and helped catapult Arty to stardom.
Like his debut album, Arty’s single, “Falling Down (feat. Maty Noyes)” (2017), showcases his talent for translating club-focused sounds to the pop/radio format, garnering over 1 million streams in the first two weeks, and international acclaim.
With an XS Encore Las Vegas residency under his belt, and a pedigree of performances at Ultra, Electric Daisy Carnival, Tomorrowland, Ushuaïa, Amnesia Ibiza, and Creamfields, Arty has established himself as one of the music industry's EDM heavyweights, a prodigious talent, rising through the hard-earned ranks kicked off by a demo email in 2009.
Today, Arty resides in Los Angeles and is always pushing forward. As a leading influence in the music scene and top 25 DJ, ARTY has several new works of original music and collaborations set for release later this year. Recently he has toured in Asia, played sold-out shows in Ibiza with Martin Garrix and Armin van Buuren, wrapped a Japan tour, a Russia tour, and played major festivals including EDC, Tomorrowland, Dreamstate, Electric Love Festival, and Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy Weekender.
When not producing or touring, Arty is a gamer spending downtime dominating in League of Legends and FIFA, or sinking into single-player narratives. In 2018 he released “Velvet” on Ninjawerks — the first-ever dance music & gaming collaboration soundtrack. He is also a fan of the Real Madrid and AC Milan soccer franchises, and the Washington Capitals hockey team.
