At the very tail end 2017, pulled f a surprise by releasing an hour-long trance mix under his moniker.
It’s been nearly a year since the Russian producer revived the Alpha 9 name and began putting out tracks like “The Night Is Ours” and “.” He cited creative reasons for bringing the old name back, wanting freedom to create all kinds music.
“Closer to the end 2016] I noticed how much my music was different from what I’ve done in the past, and I felt like I had been neglecting my long-time fans and it didn’t feel fair. And that’s how I came up with idea bringing the Alpha 9 alias back,” he said with the release “The Night Is Ours.” “It gives me the freedom to not be bounded to a specific genre, allowing me to experiment and keep pushing my boundaries with Arty, while I can be as close as possible to my long-time fans using Alpha 9 moniker.”
His New Year mix is an emotive collection music, flowing seamlessly from Arty tunes to Alpha 9 material. It kicks f with a new Alpha 9 track called “You and I” and takes the listener on a journey through the essence Alpha 9/Arty as a producer.
