ARTBAT launched their new label UPPERGROUND with the single Flame in August.
The second version arrived last month with Horizon, another Ukrainian classic.
Since they began working together in 2015, the talented duo of Artur and Batish have created and released a steady stream of quality and innovative dancefloor-focused music.
It was only a matter of time before they started their own imprint for their release with UPPERGROUND.
The label’s ethos is to be an outlet for their unique and creative sound.
Horizon returns to their roots, where they stay true to their vision and return to what they are known for: unique and innovative avant-garde sounds.
We caught up with them this week and asked them to tell us about some of the great tracks you can hear in their DJ sets right now, including new single Horizon.
Whomadewho – Abu Simbel
One of our favorite starter tracks, it brings such positive vibes and creates the perfect friendly atmosphere. A real gem for any ensemble.
Monolink – Return to Oz (ARTBAT Remix)
Beautiful vocals from the Monolink tracks always and it brings a soulful, danceable beat wherever this one is played.
Joris Voorn – Navigator
A big, powerful techno track that hits at peak times and doesn’t mess around. Fantastic energy and every time we play this everyone’s hands are up!
ARTBAT – Flame
Our first album on our new label Upperground which was released in August. A piece about the feelings of the heart and the fire that brings emotions of passion and love. A real proud moment when it came out and the label was launched, super happy!
Must Ocin – Boreal
Boréal is a very interesting and special track for us! Impressive melody and 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 impressive effect! He brought those classic vocals back to modern dance floors and the result is of epic proportions. Sometimes it can be really tricky when remixing such a well-known track, but Maceo Plex really delivered here.
ARTBAT – Horizon
A deep melodic techno track that makes you feel like you’re on a short hyperspace flight. Our second release on our new label and of which we are once again super proud.
Röyksopp – What else is there? (ARTBAT Remix)
Remix from us of one of the greatest tracks of the mid-2000s. Special vocals that touch people’s souls. We loved having this opportunity and we hope we did the original pride.
Stephan Bodzin – Boavista
New jewel of the very talented Stephan Bodzin from his brand new album of the same name. A piece full of deep dramatic emotions and an excellent rhythm characteristic of Stephan.
ARTBAT, Sailor & I – Best of Me
One of our lovely tracks 🙂 An epic track, with big meaningful Sailor & I connecting vocals, drops and powerful melodies. It was also a massive hit on the charts, and our fans love it when we debut it at a gig!
