New Horizons, ALPHA 9‘s debut album, is currently available on Anjunabeats.
Artem Stolyarov, well known by the stage names ARTY and ALPHA 9, has amassed millions of followers around the world and packed some of the most prestigious clubs and festivals.
He started working with Anjunabeats almost ten years ago using the moniker ARTY. ‘Rush’, ‘Zara’, ‘Around The World’, ‘Rebound’ and ‘Kate’ are classics that helped define the sound of the label in the early 2010s.
Artem later turned inward and discovered new meaning as ALPHA 9, the moniker he’s been using in recent years to explore his actual musical identity. Artem’s most memorable performances as ALPHA 9 as a progressive trance artist include “Before The Dawn,” “Stellar,” “Skin,” and his faithful adaptation of Above & Beyond, as well as Zo Johnston’s timeless classic “Good For Me.”
ALPHA 9’s explosive sets have graced Steel Yard, Dreamstate, Electric Daisy Carnival, Tomorrowland, Ushuaïa, Amnesia Ibiza, and Creamfields. His most recent performance was at Above & Beyond’s sold-out Group Therapy 500 festivities in Los Angeles, where he delighted 20,000 fans.
The climax of the ALPHA 9 saga thus far and an alluring preview of the project’s future may be found in “New Horizons.” The sound is readily recognizable as being characteristic of ALPHA 9, but it also looks to the future and explores new territory, according to Artem. “New Horizons” is the name of the journey from ALPHA 9’s first steps to maturity.
This, in Artem’s opinion, is the most open, unfiltered, and invigorating music he has ever produced.
This is a new chapter. I’m very confident in the direction I’m taking this project. This new album is a journey from the beginning of ALPHA 9’s artistry to now. – ALPHA 9
Fans and tastemakers alike have been enthralled by the album’s singles. Over two million streams of “Calling,” “Down to Love,” and “Final Frontier” have been accumulated thus far. All three singles have been supported by artists such as Armin van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Ferry Corsten, Cosmic Gate, Farius, and others, and have been in Beatport’s Top 100 Trance list.
ALPHA 9 is my roots. And when we decided to revive the project, we knew we wanted to take it to Anjunabeats – Artem
He celebrates the release of ‘New Horizons’ with an extensive tour across North America in January – March 2023, with tickets on sale now.
