The Trance/Electro world is up in arms about a track by Will.I.Am featuring Chris Brown entitled “Let’s Go”. It seems that the first man to premiere a song from the surface of Mars wanted to use a sample from Mat Zo and Arty’s track “Rebound”.
Obviously this would be okay….had he asked, which he did not. According to Arty, neither he or Arjunabeats received any indication from Will.I.Am regarding the issue. Mat Zo has since deleted his twitter account in protest. DJ Eco of Above and Beyond posted on his Facebook in disgust. The entire Trance world is up in arms as they should be. Take a listen to both tracks and you’ll know why:
Obviously, one can understand why Will.I.Am would want to use this track. Electro is starting to creep into the rap world a little more than most people would like. It would be completely okay if he were to ask. This is copyright infringement at the highest level. The misconception with sampling is that you can use any other song you want. Maybe Will.I.Am thought that he was so big he would not get into trouble over this. The fact that this song is with an auto-tuned Chris Brown does not help his cause….at all. Overall this is another reason why copyright infringement should always be enforced to the highest level and make an example of “credible producers” like Will.I.Am
There really is No Party without Arty and he proves that with this awesome ‘Rock-N-Rolla’ remix of Ferry Corsten’s “Rock Your Body Rock” with a rolling bassline and anthemic like sound, this song would go off at a festival no question. Released today purchase it on Beatport to blast it around as you get get ready for the many festivals this summer!
Afrojack is brining in the new year in style, hosting JACKED NYE at Pier 94 with it surely being one of the biggest New Years Eve Parties in NYC. With a line up consisting of, R3hab, Quintino, Shermanology, Bobby Burns and just recently added stars, Arty and Tommie Sunshine. This is sure to be a massive event and a great expo of what to expect from the JACKED crew in 2013. The two sets I’m most excited to hear are Quintino’s and Arty’s. Each have such a unique style and have already come out with a couple Beatport chart toppers respectively. Both young guns have had a stellar year already and they will look to continue that this upcoming year. Doors open at 8pm and the party goes till 6:00am. Keep an eye out for CMB as we’ll be at both JACKED and the Dada Life show in NYC and we’ll be bringing you a full review of each show.
No words needed to describe this one. Absolutely amazing. Alesso takes Arty’s original which is absolutely flawless and removes the bass to deliver a track of pure bliss. Alesso’s remix and the original are below and both are out Dec. 21.
I love to see when artists change it up a bit. Arty does that here shying away from the euphoric sound you’ve come to expect from him and delivering us a track that is a lot more harder and darker then what we have seen from the young Russian. With stunning vocals courtesy of Nadia Ali matching the smooth chords leading you into a sublime drop, this track is sure to be huge. Due out September 17.
Debuted on Tiesto’s latest Club Life episode, Arty returns more to his earlier trance roots with this track titled, Grand Final. With soothing piano notes mixed in with infectious lead play the young Russian really puts on display the immense talent he possesses. With an arsenal of tracks still yet to be released look out for Arty to close the year with a bang and definitely earn a spot in the DJ Mag Top 100.
The United States has opened its gates. Electronic Music has made its grand entrance into the ears of listeners that stretch coast to coast. Although it may seem everyone is catching on to this latest craze in music, the entire electronic sound isn’t 100 percent being given the warm welcome hug that you may think. Arty, one of the youngest and up and coming names in House and Trance music realizes the differences when he comes to play a set in the States compared to overseas and prepares accordingly. His view on what his style his sets are like depends completely on what he feels from the crowd. “People here want the bangers. They want big room, heavy sounds,” Arty said about his interpretation of the American Fans’ desires. For a DJ who comes from a trance background, leaning more now towards a house sound, he has a lot of music in his arsenal and realizes what tracks should be used and when. “The crowd here was reacting well to my harder and bigger house tracks,” he said about the masses at Festival Pier’s Main Stage at the Philadelphia Identity Festival Stop. “I like “dancey” tracks, more than ones that deal with emotions, but what I play also depends on the length of the set,” he said concerning his new stance as more of a house DJ. “People here aren’t really as open to trance tracks as they are in other places,” said Arty. His views on trance being accepted in US were more about the name than the sound. “Armin Van Buuren can come here and play a trance set because that’s what people expect from him and want to hear.” For now, Arty insists that he will keep his sets “fresh” and will continue to give us what we want to hear.
On Arty’s first traveling dance music tour, he is really enjoying himself and expresses exhaustion after each set. Watching him preform was an absolute treat and you could tell the entire crowd surrounding the mega structure which he conducted from, felt the same way. Saying he played a massive set, really doesn’t do the Russian phenom justice. As the Philly sun began its descent, and its neon LED rivals began to invade the finger tips of many, Arty brought us to a new level. A level of sound that demanded a crowd to crave for more.
“ Of course I care what the fans are saying,” said Arty when the topic of DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJ list came up. A world-renowned source that tallies up votes from fans around the world for who is the top in the DJ World, which Arty was named 25th in last year, will announce its results in a few weeks or so. “Its good to know your fans care and it shows the support you have,” he said referring to the yearly vote. The Internet and social media play a huge role in this process, and in the end a list will be named, but Arty’s immediate focus remains on the music, and not the polls. One of the youngest, most talented faces in the EDM world keeps his cool, collected self when asked to answer a question or two, but transforms into a titan, leading crowds with his powerful sound.
