Coming off of a tremendously successful 2018 that saw ARTY release twenty new songs between his two projects (ARTY and ALPHA 9), ARTY is starting 2019 stronger than ever with a superb new single on Armada Music, the world’s biggest independent dance music label. Today, the Russian electronic music icon launched his new single ‘Save Me Tonight,’ which includes a star-studded music video and a big tour across North America.

Listen to ARTY – Save Me Tonight


Getting fans hooked in the blink of an eye, ‘Save Me Tonight’ sees ARTY produce what he truly believes is the best record he’s ever made. With an exciting blend of stunning piano chords and powerful vocals that go on to erupt into melodic, high-impact dance music madness, the record is an instant highlight, crowd favorite and airwave smash in one — a song that ARTY attributes to a special period in dance music.


ARTY: “Since the day I was introduced to the dance scene, I’ve always had a special place for House music in my heart. This song’s mix of strong songwriting and deep lyrics makes this my favorite out of all the records I’ve ever made. It’s heavily influenced by the golden era of Progressive/House music, so it is a really uplifting track that utilizes a lot of old-school piano stabs and chords, but also has all kinds of other elements, like from ‘90s House music.”


The music video for ‘Save Me Tonight’ was shot in Los Angeles and tells a recognizable story of the situations life throws at us and how the end of a lesson is often the beginning of something better. The video stars Golden Globe nominated actress Lily Collins — daughter of musician Phil Collins — and includes a cameo performance from actor Noah Centineo, who also directed the music video.


ARTY: “Working with Lily and Noah was a dream come true. We asked Lily to be in the video without even knowing she was a fan of my music and she said yes. Having the chance to collaborate with my friend Noah to direct and also star in my first music video was so much fun. He did an incredible job.”

Now residing in Los Angeles, ARTY performs at the biggest festivals and clubs in the world (e.g. Ultra, Electric Daisy Carnival, Tomorrowland, Ushuaïa, Amnesia Ibiza, Creamfields), and clocks up millions of streams on Spotify.  ARTY is a purebred artist capable of true greatness, and he’s bound to achieve just that as he goes all out right off the bat in 2019 with ‘Save Me Tonight’.

Sometimes, a chance meeting is all it takes for magic to happen. In Los Angeles, at the start of a new school year, Bob Sinclar was invited to a charity event organized by the French high school his children go to. Among the parents participating was a certain Robbie Williams, and during this atypical meeting far from studios, clubs and gigantic concert halls, all the elements were there for an artistic collaboration between an electronic music star and world-renowned pop icon: ‘Electrico Romantico’.


Listen to Bob Sinclar feat. Robbie Williams – Electrico Romantico

Confirming the musical shift of Bob Sinclar after dominating European radio airplay for almost fifteen weeks with summer single ‘I Believe’, ‘Electrico Romantico’ offers a combination of explosive grooves and disco-esque vibes to really get the crowd going. Add to that Robbie Williams’ alluring, impeccably poppy vocals and you know that this meeting of two staple artists shows why both artists are unanimously touted as 21st century hit machines.


Legendary French artist Bob Sinclar has been one of the longest standing figures of the international electronic music scene, and produced some of its most iconic house hits across a career spanning almost 20 years. With eight full-length albums under his belt, a glittering discography that includes #1 hits and gold and platinum records, and a constant tour diary that features annual slots at Carnaval de Rio and Tomorrowland as well as an annual residency at Pacha Ibiza with his ‘Paris By Night’ concept, his influence can be felt throughout all levels of dance music.


There’s no denying that Robbie Williams is among the biggest music stars of this era. As a solo artist, he has sold over 77 million albums worldwide, has six of the top 100 best-selling albums in British history, and has had fourteen #1 singles. He is also one of the most in-demand live performers in music, who continues to play stadiums around the world, and has won a record number of eighteen BRIT Awards – more than any other artist in music history.

It’s one of the highlights from his intention album and overall stunning track. Together with Belarusian producer Arston and singer-songwriter Vegas, Alexander Popov created a track you don’t want to miss!

Listen to the track here.

The eruptive vocals, embracing chords and Progressive House-flavored lead synths say it all. ‘In My Arms’ is one of the absolute highlights from Alexander Popov’s ‘Intention’ album. A collaboration with Belarusian producer Arston and singer-songwriter Vegas, this song is the reason you’ll be spending a lot of time on cloud nine.



The ‘Take Everything’ STANDERWICK Remix was personally requested by Gareth Emery after the massive success of STANDERWICK’s Remix of ‘Reckless’. The rock influenced remix with its angelic leads and Emma Hewitt’s stunning vocals truly is a masterpiece.

Snarling electric guitars and cavernous live drums signal the arrival of Standerwick’s searing, rock-influenced remix of ‘Take  Everything’. Seamlessly fusing his trademark edge and energy with angelic leads, this 136bpm beast prowls the depths with thunderous intent before a cathartic  melodic counterpoint ascends; delivering Emma Hewitt’s vocals to the heavens.
