CODE caught up with Arty this week to discuss his new album and premiere his new single, as well as provide a glimpse into the music he’s currently listening to. Here are the young Russian’s playlist picks.
Pharrell ft. Jay Z (Disclosure Re-Work), "Frontin'"
The Russian artist opens his playlist in telling funk-infused fashion with Disclosure’s delicious “Frontin’” rework.
Mat Zo ft The Knocks, "Get Down 2 Get Up"
Having previously joined forces on releases like “Rebound,” Arty and Mat Zo have a close collaborative relationship they will reprise on the former’s new album. Arty praised Mat Zo’s recent soulful work and selected this funky cut as a representative sample.
Porter Robinson, "Sad Machine"
Arty cited Porter Robinson as an artist who was doing something new and fresh, and he backs up his praise by including the second single off the North Carolina producer’s forthcoming album.
Giving a nod to the progressive house that characterized much of his past output, Arty included this sweeping and melodic single from 22-year-old American producer Audien.
Flume, "Holdin On"
Arty closes his playlist with a choice Flume track that is shuffling and soulful from start to finish.
