The punchy drop is catchy enough to thaw listeners’ dispositions long after the song’s conclusion.

Arty has released an extensive catalog of music this year under both his Arty and Alpha9 monikers.

The duo have certainly left the door open for future collaborations, given the rapturous execution of this first endeavor.

The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed.


The Magician casts his infectious house melodies on Michael Calfran’s “It’s Wrong,” featuring smooth vocals from Danny Dearden. A bouncing bassline dances with the melody, adding a groovy swing to the remix.

Russian DJ ARTY brings an effervescent light to “Perfect Strangers,” A Euro dance build falls into stuttering electro house. Big, bright synths are part of the lush atmosphere he’s built here, seemingly drawing inspiration from Avicii in his early works.

Timmy Trumpet and Maddix have teamed up to bring stadium-sized psytrance in “The Prophecy,” released off Hardwell‘s Revealed imprint. Middle Eastern vocals dance alongside big kicks and a hefty bassline, while on the verses, bright synths croon above a bed of casual drums, unaware of what’s to come next.

Dzeko teams up with Brazilian producer, Liu, to show off intimidating bass house with body-tingling bass and rhythm-bouncing vocal chops. The melody builds anticipation on “Don’t Stop,” which then drops listeners deep down low into a bass abyss.

Abby Diamond walks along filtered sultry synths, twinkling texture, and accompanying percussive elements in “Irrelevant.” The harmony wafts in the air or flows like water, with Diamond’s dynamic atmosphere personifying elements.

Armada Music has released “Antares,” a bright electro house festival thumper from the two Dutch brothers, DubVision. Inspiring melodies build and maintain anticipation while the kick drives.

Phantoms feature Vanessa Hudgens on their pop-inspired single, “Lay With Me.” Hudgens rides the groove, showing off her range and spirit-lifting hooks.

Anna Yvette gets retro on “Shooting Star,” with her vocals gliding along ’80s synths, old-school drums, and a sparkling atmosphere, while slowing the tempo down for breakdowns. “Shooting Star” also features a sick guitar solo during the bridge.

Lido has released his I O U 1 EP off Emmanuel de Buretel’s Because Music label. “Partake” stands out among the list of must-listens, as a melancholy Lido slows heartbeats and mourns over distraught emotions. The song takes a turn halfway through, touting a story of resiliency.

i_o builds flawlessly on “Feel You Now,” sliding the arrangement into melodic bliss that sounds like stars shimmering in the night. A pulsating bassline drives alongside the big kick rhythm.

League of Legends is known for collaborating with great artists and releasing fire tracks. This time around, they team up with The Glitch MobMako, and The Word Alive for their 2018 theme song, “Rise.” Notes of electronic rock give way to a bit of headbanging in a more pop avenue.

Secondcity delivers groovy funk house with soulful vocals on top in “Tomorrow’s World.” Chord progressions of keys build with sax sounds to create a must-listen for any disco lover.

DJ Doctor Boom delivers a remix pack of JoJo‘s “Oh Yes Oh Yes” off his Del Sol imprint based out of Tampa, Florida. Brian Busto’s stands out for its infectious percussive swing and contrast between gritty lows and scintillating highs.

Hanne Mjøen’s newest single might be called “Sounds Good To Me,” but in actuality it sounds good to everyone. The blossoming Norwegian singer has been signed to Warner — a sign of true talent — and is already capturing worldwide attention with infectious hits like the one above.

Adam Port and RÜFÜS DU SOL make for an enticing combination. The Keinemusik member put his simmering, hypnotic touch on the Australian trio’s original “Underwater,” which works extraordinarily well with the airy chords and feel-good vocals of the song’s first iteration.

New York-based producer HARBER has been climbing through the ranks, remixing hit tracks such as “Sick Boy” by The Chainsmokers and “Don’t Call” by Lost Kings. Now, HARBER — real name, Harry Berman, is starting to show the depths of his production capabilities in releasing his latest original single “Me And My Friends” featuring Angel Taylor. Taylor’s also made a strong name for herself in dance music, with a rap sheet of marquee vocal features alongside Armin Van Buuren, Tritonal, Arty, and more.

Released on PRMD music, HARBER gives the track an uptempo start with light snares and melodic synths, building into a stomping moombahton break, containing looped vocal pitches, precisely layered percussion, and a unique, club floor-ready bass line. The track is an infectious hip-swinger that sounds like it was cropped out of the early Major Lazer canon. Look out for HARBER, something about this new track suggests there’s a lot more like this up his sleeve.

The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed.


Fellow Dutchmen and certified big room aficionados, Hardwell and the Blasterjaxx brethren, have released “Bigroom Never Dies,” an earth (or club)-shattering ode to their momentous musical styles.

Brothers by blood and collaborators by choice, DubVision has concocted a new, transcendently vocalized progressive house anthem, “Steal The Moon,” with lyrics and piano chords as ambitious as its title.

Far from his first run with Anjunabeats, Audien has made an auspicious return to the label with “Higher,” twinkling, atmospheric, and emblematically Anjuna, with vocal accents from Cecilia Gault.

Future house furnishings compliments of Mesto‘s “Give Me Love.”

Midnight Kids have given R3HAB‘s formerly much more buoyant “Hold On Tight” a deliciously smooth chillstep makeover.

One of the freshest and most vivacious new faces to make his way on the house spectrum, FISHER, has graced Catch & Release with “Losing It,” pitched-down, nefariously fun, and imperatively danceable.

Jamie Jones‘s tech-laden remix of Elderbrook‘s “Sleepwalking” catapults the listener into a kaleidoscopic chasm of rippling synths and subdued, echoing vocals.

Mothica has once again lent her sensuous and full-bodied musings to insectile counterpart Icarus Moth, for “Don’t,” perpetuating an already longstanding musical partnership.

DeModa’s new saxophone-infused “Her(e),” (crafty) featuring Jafé is a sundry summer salutation — equal parts chillout and funktastic.

Household EDM vocalist, KARRA, joins JayKode for “Living Out Loud,” a brimming future bass track from Trap City Records.

Male-female duo, BONNIE X CLYDE have released their five-track While We’re Young EP, with ambient, chill trap permeating throughout.

The now-one-man show of Flosstradamus has proven he has no intentions of throwing his wild antics in reverse any time soon, as he releases “GUAVA,” a glass-shattering trap offering with Rawtek.

LA’s SNBRN keeps the summer sun a’shining with his new sultry house track, “If I Can’t Have You,” featuring soulful vocals from Harloe.

Crizzly and YDG make a rowdy riddim debut on Doctor P‘s Circus Records with “Knocked Out,” a hardcore dubstep track with searing switch-ups and gear-grinding bass.

Active as ever, Arty has put his whimsical spin on FRND’s “Erase,” a heartening rendition, to say the least.

TyDi and celestial songstress, London Thor, offer some downtempo serenity to help listeners unwind for the weekend with “Please Stay.”

Purple Disco Machine, as the name states, deliver a funky-fresh, guitar-friendly rendition of blossoming newcomer, SOFI TUKKER‘s “Batshit.”

ARTY can’t be stopped as he releases yet another track, ‘Couldn’t Be Better’

It’s Friday, so the logical next question is: did Artem Stoliarov release a song today under his ALPHA 9 or ARTY alias? The Russian producer has released 10 songs in 2018, which is more than many artists release in the span of a year (or two).

His new release is titled “Couldn’t Be Better,” and he diversifies his production style with this one by utilizing a guitar backdrop that propels the chords forward. Melodic house complements the guitar and the vocals for the track’s drop, and “Couldn’t Be Better” will be a sure summertime hit with its smooth chords and catchy vibes.

There is nothing stopping Artem Stoliarov in 2018, as the producer releases another track under his Alpha9 project.  The Russian producer has released over five tracks this calendar year mixed between progressive house alias Arty and trance alias Alpha9.

Alpha9’s newest track is named “All We Need,” and the upbeat chords propel the mystical song forward. The track is the perfect trance song to serve as the backbone of a live set, and those who see him live will certainly come across “All We Need” again.

Uplifting trance fans have a new addition to their collection of favorite tracks with Alpha 9 and Spencer Brown‘s newest release “No Going Back.” The duo have released both an edit and extended version of the track.

A mystical backdrop is infused with pulsing melodic chords and ethereal vocals to create the ultimate trance track. “No Going Back” is a versatile song with the ability to liven one’s mood or serve as a calming backdrop.
