We’re still enjoying Arty’s latest releases like “Open Space” and his “Spectrum” remix, but of course he’s obviously still working on new material. Well, Tiesto premiered one of the Russian’s newest offerings on his most recent podcast, giving the world its first listen of “Grand Final.” As with most Arty tracks, it’s got a slow but uplifting build, and a nice section in the middle to change things up. There’s not much other info available about the track just yet, but check out an unofficial rip from YouTube below.
Just when you thought there was no kind of venue that couldn’t be home to a music festival, someone comes up with something even crazier. Six Flags Great Adventure will become home to the ‘Electric Adventure’ music festival on October 6, in a one-off concert headlined by
Alesso and Arty. The show was inspired by a similar event Dash Berlin played at Six Flags Mexico City, and amusement park reps say that they hope to “make the park appealing to different audience segments” through the experience. Tickets for the event will go on sale this Friday, August 28th at Wantickets, Ticketmaster, and AreaEvent, and include full admission to the park and its various experiences. There’s no word on other amusement park festivals in the works, but if this one works out, you’ll probably see more of them come next summer.

Earlier this month, Alesso threw the party of the summer at Governors Island, NYC in celebration of his 21st birthday. Along for the ride was Arty, who destroyed the sold out crowd before the birthday boy even laid a finger on a knob. As if opening NYC’s grand event wasn’t enough, Arty has released a video recap of the unforgettable night. The after movie offers the amazing views from the island, behind the scenes with Alesso as he takes his first (legal) sips of alcohol, and a whole lot of partying. Relive the experience or live it for the first time with Arty’s video and feel like you’re on New York’s beloved summer venue with the young Russian himself.

Day by day we’ve been hearing of the big names that have remixed Zedd and Matthew Koma’s “Spectrum.” First, it was Armin van Buuren to debut his take on his A State Of Trance radio show. Then it was Arty and Deniz Koyu who would join the mix. Now we have a previews of A-Trak and Gregori Klosman’s remixes to add to the list of contributors. Zedd’s Spectrum EP doesn’t end at the big name remixes; it also includes a brand new collaboration with Nicky Romero dubbed “Human” — which you’ve heard already if you downloaded our Axis podcast mixed by Nicky himself.

July 7th was the hottest day New York City has seen this summer with temperatures flirting above 100-degrees. It was also Alessandro Lindblad’s 21st birthday, and in the dance music world, that meant one thing — a monster celebration. Last summer, Alesso joined his mentor Sebastian Ingrosso at Pacha NYC to play an unidentified track that would become “Calling.” This summer, he took another leap towards maturation — both as an artist, and as an adult — selling out New York’s greatest summer venue and throwing the birthday party of the year.
The official music video for “The Ocean,” Paul van Dyk and Arty’s almost-too-appropriately-titled collaboration, hit the Inter-webs today. The track, from the German trance superstar’s most recent album, Evolution, is a poignant bridge between trance’s past (PvD) and future (Arty). We first heard it when PvD asked us to review Evolution. Here’s what we had to say:
“(The Ocean is) a gorgeous, operatic trance banger that emphatically proves that beauty and bass can happily coexist. The best trance tracks makes you feel weightless. This is one of them.”
The music video, however, doesn’t provide us with that kind of narrative that usually accompanies a major trance track. We weren’t expecting a short film (which is basically what Dash Berlin have given us for some of their releases), but it would’ve been nice to see footage of PvD or Arty. Instead, we’re given some slightly confusing CGI sequences as well as several gratuitous shots of, well, the ocean. Perhaps this video would be more effective as a live visual display during a concert than it is as a YouTube clip.Posted by
