Former trance sensation Arty is mid-transformation as he's been releasing new material that deviates from his earlier work. The producer has contributed to major trance events such as Armin Van Buuren’s A State of Trance and has released the majority of his work via Above & Beyond’s label Anjunabeats. The star has recently been putting out music of a different style. Specifically, his newest progressive house track “Up All Night,” the first track released through newly founded record label Insomniac Records. We spoke with the transfigured artist to get a deeper understanding of the artist he seeks to become.
EDM.com: Congratulations on being the first artist to release a track via Insomniac Records. How did your new original “Up All Night” come together?
Arty: I’ve been working on my upcoming album a lot recently; it just seemed like the right time with the label and the track I had been currently making. Angel Taylor and I were in the studio together and we wrote the song together. I think that’s the best process is sitting down and working with the songwriters. This song was really not only by just us but a lot of others contributed to the track itself.
EDM.com: Your style has changed over the past couple of years, especially with your new track “Up All Night.” How do you feel about your fans reactions towards your shift in genres?
Arty: Well, I’m not really from the trance genre anymore. I was in the genre around 2010 I would say and I did a really big tweak of my music that I like and music that I’m doing so it’s really not trance anymore. The first thing that I want to think about is me because music is important to me and I want to be honest with myself. If you feel honest about the music that you do it becomes more comfortable because they will feel some fake underline and that doesn’t really work well.
