While Arty’s first album release remains on the horizon, he’s returned with a holiday treat to tide over his fans.
This week, the young Russian artist will give away “Night Like This,” a “really special record” that finds its origins in an evolving 2012 project. Opening with serene pads and an uplifting arpeggio that returns throughout, the production owes its escalation to a jagged throwback bassline and tight percussion.
“In the beginning it was a simple arpeggio progression idea when I was trying to get this old-school progressive vibe,” Arty tells Billboard. “A year after, I got back to it again while working on my album and it fit perfectly alongside with records that have been done already.”
