REVIEW: Arty - Distorted Love out on Anjunabeats

2016 is rapidly becoming the most prolific year in Arty’s career so far. With 2015’s Glorious LP still fresh in the memory, the Russian sensation has continued to turn out engaging club productions and inspired remixes in recent months; from his sun soaked Anjunabeats return ‘Patriots’, to the housier ‘Bloodfire’ on Hardwell’s Revealed Recordings.

Reminiscent of the brazen ‘rock-n-rolla’ sound that made his remix of Ferry Corsten’s ‘Punk’ a mainstay in the sets of Above & Beyond, Axwell and Steve Angello, ‘Distorted Love’ is another dancefloor juggernaut. Contrasting the electro-edged groove with an ethereal breakdown, Arty is able to explore some of the left-field ideas seen on his debut album while maintaining the peak-time feel. Sweeping synth textures and a spacey piano provide a reflective pause, before ‘Distorted Love’ slams into another adrenalin fuelled eruption.

With performances in Ibiza, Holland and across the US set for the summer and a collaboration with long time label mate Andrew Bayer in the pipeline, Arty is continuing to set the pace in the dance music world.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Arty is one of the artists that have been discovered and nurtured to huge highs from Above & Beyond after his magnificent trancier releases on Enhanced. Now Arty is back on Anjunabeats and as it seems his new track is an absolute stunning production that will bring fire and riot on any festival floor worldwide. Punchy rough drums combined with pulsating basslines and distorted electro style synths the track leads us full on of energy in the breakdown. Here the listener is abandoned for some minutes to escape in a mysterious world that is cinematic with certain dubstep chilling influences. The build up is intense and the climax will instantly gratify the listeners and offer them an excuse to jump as high as they can and reach the skies and the whole galaxies. Feel good to the maximum Distorted Love is a track that you will love without certain reasons or explanations. #PureGold Love it [/content]
