Artik & Asti: Essentials
A match made in dance-pop heaven, Ukrainian duo Artik & Asti emerged in 2010 with a sound that combined stunning vocals with lush production and earth-shaking beats. The group formed when hip-hop and EDM producer Artem Umrikhin (Artik) sought a powerful female voice to take his bold new sound to the next level. As this mix confirms, Anna Dzyuba (Asti) was the missing piece of the puzzle. The adventurous pair's style combines skyscraping Europop melodies, 4/4 house beats and a swirl of samples that make every hook and break a dancer's delight.
