ARTBAT launched their new label UPPERGROUND with the single Flame back in August.
The second release arrived last month with Horizon, another classic from the Ukrainians.
Since they started working together back in 2015 the talented duo of Artur and Batish have crafted and released a steady stream of quality, innovative dance floor focused music.
It was only a matter of time before they started their own imprint for their output with UPPERGROUND.
The ethos of the label is to be an outlet for their unique and creative sound.
Horizon goes back to their roots, where they stay true to their vision and returning to what they are known for: unique and innovative, forward thinking sounds.
We caught up with them this week and asked them to talk us through some of the big tracks you can hear at the moment in their DJ sets including new single Horizon.
Whomadewho – Abu Simbel
One of our favourite starting tracks, it brings such positive vibes and creates a perfect friendly atmosphere. A real gem for any set.
Monolink – Return To Oz (ARTBAT Remix)
Beautiful vocals from Monolink tracks always and this brings melancholy and dancing rhythm to everywhere where this one is played.
Joris Voorn – Navigator
A great powerful peak time banging techno track that doesn’t mess about. Fantastic energy and whenever we play this out, everyones hands are in the air!
ARTBAT – Flame
Our first release on our new Upperground label that came out in August. A track about feelings of the heart, and fire that brings emotions of passion and love. A real proud moment when this came out and the label was launched, super happy!
Shall Ocin – Boreal
Boreal is a very interesting and special track to us! An awesome melody and a powerful drop combine to make a real impact on any dance floor!
Faithless – Insomnia (Maceo Plex Epic Remix)
An obviously iconic track, remixed by Maceo Plex to awesome effect! He returned these classic vocals to the modern dance floors and the result is of epic proportions. Sometimes it can be very tricky when remixing such a known track but Maceo Plex really delivered here.
ARTBAT – Horizon
A deep melodic techno track that makes you feel like you are on a short space travel hyper flight. Our second release on our new label and one we are again super proud of.
Röyksopp – What Else Is There? (ARTBAT Remix)
Remix from us of one of the greatest tracks from the middle of 2000s. Special vocals that touch peoples souls. We loved being given this opportunity and we hope we did the original proud.
Stephan Bodzin – Boavista
New gem from the supremely talented Stephan Bodzin from his brand new LP of the same name. A track full of deep dramatic emotions, and great signature rhythm from Stephan.
ARTBAT, Sailor & I – Best Of Me
One of our lovely tracks 🙂 Epic track, with big connecting meaning vocals from Sailor & I, powerful drops and melodies. This was a massive success in the charts too, and our fans love it when we drop this at a gig!
