I was checking out Digital Horizons on WRUW and heard a shout out for the upcoming Arty show at Liquid. It’d been a while since I’e been there, but as time for Movement grows closer, I’m beefing up my EDM chops for that weekend. Thought it would be a fun night out. Liquid is a pretty cool place for the Warehouse District - not too fancy. Just a lot of people who like to dance. Dominic Parisi started the night with some great stuff.
Arty seamlessly took control and changed things up. This “Russian prince of trance” has had a couple great mixes on Soundcloud and seems to be making some waves lately. He had more of a pop vibe and polish, though I’ll admit to feeling the openers a bit more - but that’s not surprising for me. He still put on a great show. I’ll be looking forward to some new stuff coming out by him. Here’s some more about Arty:
"The Russian prince of trance, Arty, had quite a year in 2014 between his Up All Night Tour, signing his debut LP as the first release of Insomniac Records, a residency at Drais, and remixing Porter Robinson and OneRepublic. His ability to maintain his signature style while appealing to a wide ranging audience is impressive to say the least. "
