Famed DJ/Producer and EDM heavyweight Artem ‘Arty’ Stoliarov a.k.a. ARTY continues to surprise the dance community.
Even amidst a global pandemic, Arty’s momentum shows no signs of slowing. Arty began quarantine with 75 consecutive days in the studio and has already released 20 of (at least) 25 records scheduled for 2020.
After hitting #1 on US Dance Radio with his single “Save Me Tonight”, Arty decided he wanted to focus on music that could transport fans back to the 2012 “glory days” of progressive house. Together with a handful of collaborators from Russia, Arty debuted a series of club-centric, hard hitting electro house EPs, called “From Russia With Love.”
Now, ARTY is geared up to release some of his greatest work to date, including his upcoming sophomore album, which will begin rolling out at the start of 2021.
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 working on his first ever ALPHA 9 album, coming soon on Anjunabeats.
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 in 2011. 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 most consistent artists, a prodigious talent, and has become a go-to for others artists, crafting immensely popular remixes for Skrillex, Axwell /\ Ingrosso, Armin Van Buuren, Halsey, Surf Mesa, OneRepublic, London Grammar, Above & Beyond, Porter Robinson, Years & Years, and many more.
Today, Arty resides in Russia with his family and closest friends. When he’s not producing music or eating his mom’s mashed potatoes, Arty spends his downtime dominating 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.
