For all the positive surges in Russia’s fast-developing EDM scene, few have touched on the youthful exuberance of Engel’s own Arty. Amid his globetrotting festival appearances and contributions to Axtone and Anjunabeats alike, the young euphoric heavyweight returns to the renowned imprint of Above and Beyond to extend his reign with ‘Open Space’.
Still packed with the divine and deep melodic hallmarks that have characterised his untimely accession to the ranks of MTV approved Progressive pundit, ‘Open Space’ provides a coarse and grinding sound scope that still manages to build upon the euphoric grounds he has championed for well-over two years now. Without selling himself short amid the current heat of the industry’s most sought-after season, the explosive talent retains his title as one of the more extensively consistent producers to emerge from Russia.
