A return to the classic rolling trance sound, ARTY returns as Alpha 9 for ‘Tell Me‘. This uplifting track echoes the sounds of the amazing ‘Zara’. We see its release on Anjunabeats.
Starting off, you get the rumbling bassline reminiscent of his old trance sound. It slowly builds in tempo, resting at a comfortable 128-129 bpm. As the synths enter, your heart begins to melt and emotions begin to soar. Once the vocals and piano chords enter, let your spirits rise with the melody and uplift. Those chills you feel rolling down your arms and spine–that is the trance sound that we know and love from Artem.
This track follows the release of ‘Dreams’ and ‘All That I Can’ we saw earlier in 2020. Is it any wonder that the Russian-born producer is one of our favorites? Always selling out shows and gaining over fifteen million streams, we know his releases are always a must-hear. Even when quarantine slows things down, he still keeps the momentum. He makes minds wander and nights memorable. His magic touch in sound resurrects the lifeblood in us all.
Artem Stolyarov is a treasured soul of the label’s twenty-year history. His numerous contributions further him into the upper echelon of the genre. As both monikers, his discography is flooded with historical collaborations, singles, and remixes. He definitely earns admiration from many in the Anjunafamily.
We hope this song also gives you some energy to push through the remaining months of the year. Festival comebacks still seem to be undecided at this point, but we can enjoy some live streams this weekend. That includes Insomniac’s Dreamstate Satellite Series and others.
Until then, you can listen to two versions of the track–an extended and original–below. Here’s to the weekend!
