The DJ Producer as dominated with his unique sound and ability to manipulate sound at a top-class clip. With festival season on the horizon, we are starting to see producers dropping teasers to
Virtual Self has been one of the most interesting story lines in EDM over the last several months. Porter Robinson released his new alter ego focusing on an unique and unexplored world and obviously it became an instant success. Several artists have tried their hand at remixing Virtual Self and most have come out incredible.

It’s been quite a while since ARTY last indulged Armada Music with his trailblazing signature sound, but the long-time industry icon and Armada alum is most definitely returning to the label with a bang. Almost five years after collaborating with Armin van Buuren on ‘Nehalennia’, ARTY kicks off 2018 with ‘Sunrise’ (feat. April Bender), the

Whether he is releasing under the moniker of Alpha 9 or Arty, Russian producer Artem Stoliarov is on a roll with new releases. His newest single under Arty is titled “Sunrise,” and the feel-good track takes him back to his progressive house roots.
April Bender’s vocals serve as a focal point for the song until the drop, which is an upbeat chord progression fit for a night out. Arty commented on the release:
“It’s important for me to continue making the music I enjoy the most and ‘Sunrise’ definitely falls into that category. It’s both a milestone and an incredibly important track in my career as I get back to my Progressive House roots and I’m extremely excited to officially share it with my fans after successfully sneaking it into my live sets for the past few months.”
“Sunrise” is out now on Armada.
The producer has made the vocals a secondary layer in his rendition of the song, while retaining the futuristic vibe. His remix is the perfect feel-good club track with its upbeat nature and polarizing drop.
Arty released the majority of his music in 2017 under his Alpha 9 trance moniker, and it is looking like a similar start for his 2018 releases. The Russian icon is back with a touching new release titled “You and I.”
The groovy and upbeat introduction of the song borders on commercial pop, but immediately gives way into mystical, trance-inspired progression. “You and I” sends the listener into another world with its beautiful melodies that ebb and flow in and out of the commercial backdrop.

It’s been nearly a year since the Russian producer revived the Alpha 9 name and began putting out tracks like “The Night Is Ours” and “Skin.” He cited creative reasons for bringing the old name back, wanting freedom to create all kinds of music.
“Closer to the end of  I noticed how much my music was different from what I’ve done in the past, and I felt like I had been neglecting my long-time fans and it didn’t feel fair. And that’s how I came up with idea of bringing the Alpha 9 alias back,” he said with the release of “The Night Is Ours.” “It gives me the freedom to not be bounded to a specific genre, allowing me to experiment and keep pushing my boundaries with Arty, while I can be as close as possible to my long-time fans using Alpha 9 moniker.”
His New Year mix is an emotive collection of music, flowing seamlessly from Arty tunes to Alpha 9 material. It kicks off with a new Alpha 9 track called “You and I” and takes the listener on a journey through the essence of Alpha 9/Arty as a producer.
After a year of hit releases under his Alpha9 moniker (including ‘The Night Is Ours‘ and ‘Skin‘), Arty showcased the trance vibes he is known for at Dreamstate SoCal 2017. From the sidelines of the ‘Dream’ stage, I was able to get a glimpse of the many emotions that fans expressed during his set—fans that
Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA music editor and staff writer Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.
It’s been a minute since I started out a volume of Beat Lab with a confession, but it’s time for another one. I first heard “Let Go” when Boys Like Girls did a cover of it in 2007, and I honestly had no idea it wasn’t their song. So when a remix of Frou Frou’s “Let Go” by Aylen popped up on SoundCloud, I had to investigate. This rework is a bit of a double-edged sword. It holds true to the emotion of the original track, but Aylen still manages to inject it with heavy elements that give it a more appealing angle to the EDM crowd. The juxtaposition works perfectly.
One of the latest releases from Zeds Dead‘s Deadbeats imprint is a mellow, almost haunting original from Kid Froopy. The producer tugs at the listener’s nostalgic heartstrings with a simple melody, sprinkled with sparkling synths and fun vocal chops. “New You” is part of Kid Froopy’s new EP, Drive Slow, which came out a week ago and features three other tracks that are just as fresh as this one — along with a remix of “New You” from umru.
This beautiful track from Swedish duo Galavant deserves all the attention in the world. The new Armada release packs a powerful punch of emotion and is featured as the inaugural track on episode 179 of Armada Night Radio, which is how I stumbled across it. The introduction pulls the listener in right away with soulful vocals and a gradual build that drops into a chorus of swirling synths. It’s catchy and fueled by a clear passion the duo have for making music.
Arty‘s return to his Alpha 9 alias is such a beautiful thing. In tracks like his most recent, “Burning Heart,” he’s able to re-explore his progressive trance roots — something he clearly hasn’t forgotten how to do. With dreamy vocals and steady, twinkling builds, Alpha 9 shows off his perfected trance chops. The only unfortunate part of this track is its length: it’s short at less than three minutes. Here’s hoping for an extended version in the future.
Following up an impressive selection of tracks earlier this year, Notaker has released his biggest collection of music to date: his Genesis EP. In the middle of this EP is a track called “So Much Love,” a 7-minute journey of epic proportions through an underground, visceral sound. Each piece of work Notaker releases is a carefully fine-tuned, almost cinematic masterpiece, and this latest one is no exception.
Russian born DJ/producer Arty is here with a brand new tune made of solid progressive trance gold under his Alpha 9 moniker. “Blossom” brings a taste of light and love to a world amidst chaotic times. As the song begins, listeners are greeted by ethereal female vocals that perfectly accent the tunes bouncy percussive elements. It then builds into its exciting climax soaring synths culminate in a euphoric drop that will prickle listeners with goosebumps.
It’s easy to imagine this track absolutely smashing festivals and clubs around the world with its scintillating and enthralling energy. With the days growing shorter and winter quickly approaching, “Blossom” is the ideal for bringing back memories of summer. It seeps into the psyche and guides the fingers toward the “replay” button.
