On July 4th, 2011, Arty released his massive, big-room house anthem “Around the World” on Anjunabeats following unprecedented support across the board from Axwell, Chuckie, Hardwell, Tiesto, Robbie Rivera, Armin Van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Gareth Emery and an extended list of the biggest names in electronic music of the moment on the biggest events of the year such as the Swedish House Mafia’s performance on the main stage of the record-breaking Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas in June 2011. Artem Stolyarov has himself already been around the world and back having played events across the globe from the most prestigious clubs to some of the biggest festivals including Global Gathering, Gatecrasher and ASOT 500 in Den Bosch.
In autumn 2010 Arty made his debut in the DJ Mag Top 100 poll as #78 in the world while being listed by many peers in the same centurion as the breakthrough artist of the year, which was subsequently followed by nomination for Best Breakthrough DJ at the 2011 IDMA awards.
As Arty said in an interview in summer 2010, “I think that your goals must be difficult to achieve; reaching such goals is the most exciting thing that encourages me to develop as an artist”, and with so much achieved so far in his fledgling career with over 30 releases on labels from Armada to Black Hole, topping Beatport charts and being supported on countless radio shows by other top artists this hard-working attitude indicates only more to come.
2013 was the year that saw Russian prodigy Arty’s transformation from a next-gen hero of the trance scene into a DJ titan who’s performed at some of the world’s biggest festivals. New singles Together We Are’ and ‘Grand Finale’both showcased his growing turn towards the main stage and progressive house, and he was given the chance to showcase them at UMF in Miami, as well as Tomorrowland in Belgium, which he nominates as his year’s highlights.
ARTY is the darling of the EDM world. An emerging titan in the studio and simply electrifying in the booth, support comes from all possible corners – Armin Van Buuren, Skrillex, Avicii, Tiesto, Above & Beyond, Axwell, SHM, Dirty South, Porter Robinson and more join the plethora of press touting ARTY as one of the biggest rising stars of recent years.From broadcasting behemoths MTV and Sirius XM and music bible Rolling Stone through to influential tastemakers Dancing Astronaut and beyond, watch ARTY build on this in 2012 as he continues to forge his path and takes his place amongst the dance music elite.The gifted youngster first lit up airwaves and dance floors back in 2009 with tracks such as ‘Gentle Touch’, ‘Get On’ and ‘Flip Flop’. Quickly snapped up by the legendary Anjunabeats imprint, his relationship with the team behind Above & Beyond has only gone from strength to strength over the last three years.
Explosive anthems have proved to be the norm for Arty; ‘Kate’, ‘Around The World’, the Axtone-signed ‘Trio’ and the explosive Mat Zo collaboration ‘Mozart’ being the mere tip of a rapidly expanding musical iceberg. Consistently featured in the sets of the world’s biggest artists and on its most far-reaching radio stations, it came as no surprise then that 2011’s DJ Mag Top 100 DJ Poll saw ARTY soar a staggering 50+ places to claim the #25 spot.It’s not just his continual onslaught of production work that sealed the deal for the army of ARTY fans who put their money where their mouth is and delivered votes in their droves. Whether it’s deep in the darkened, thundering bosom of clubland or in front of tens of thousands on the laser-lit stages of Ultra Music Festival, Identity Festival, Electric Zoo Festival, Fallout Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival and more, his spell- binding sets have cemented his status as one of the most sought after artists anywhere. From the US and Canada through to South America, across the seas to the shores of Europe, Asia and beyond to Australia, this hot talent has grabbed the attention of both the new EDM generation and those more seasoned veterans of the dance arena. The chant seized on by fans says it all; there is “no party without ARTY”.
And the success continues across the board. In June 2012, ARTY announced the beginning of a new partnership with Stateside radio giant Sirius XM. Joining the elite ranks of DJs to have hosted exclusive shows on the network, ARTY’s ‘Together We Are’ will beam directly into the ears of a waiting America. ‘Open Space’, released on Anjunabeats in June, scored huge radio play and an overwhelming tidal wave of support from the likes of David Guetta, Axwell, Armin Van Buuren, Tiesto, Hardwell, Thomas Gold, Gareth Emery, Ferry Corsten, Kaskade, Max Vangeli and more. As ARTY’s profile continues to grow, as more and more tune in to his sound, the only question is how far and how high this young talented artist can go.
