By Brian Bonavoglia | October 3, 2017

Trance fans have been patiently waiting for Alpha 9’s return to Flashover for quite some time, and following the release of his latest original, the Russian talent has returned home.

Returning to where his journey started back in 2009, Alpha 9’s “Lily” is a blissful progressive trance masterpiece that fans have implored for since the announcement of his triumphant comeback back in February.

Could this mean more Alpha 9 tunes coming from the Flashover imprint? Only time will tell.


Arty is Releasing 'Skin' Under his ALPHA 9 Alias on Anjunabeats


Alpha 9 – Skin (Original Mix)

ALPHA 9 is the alias used by the Russian Dj/producer Arty  and his latest single ‘Skin‘ is out now on the Anjunabeats label of Above & Beyond. Arty had made a name for himself as a solid force in the progressive trance scene. He has since expanded the Arty name into more commercial music, but is keeping the original vibes with this project.

The track begins with a skipping beat that picks up as the bpm increases and the first drop nears. The use of the synth around the 2 minute mark is phenomenal and is blended with a emotive harmony. This modern trance classic has the unique Arty sound that leaves us hypnotized with its soulful essence. We’re sure you’ll hear more of his music at ABGT250coming up. Give it a listen below.


Alpha 9 – Higher Place


Earlier this year Russian producer Arty thrilled old school fans by announcing his return to his original trance sound under the alias Alpha 9. And in March, he successfully debuted at ASOT 800 at Ultra Miami. If you were lucky enough to be there, you were treated to an amazing first set. If not, he posted a high quality recording of his set here. And now he is dropping his second track as Alpha 9 on Armind Recordings: ‘Higher Place‘.

The track opens up with an energetic drumbeat which quickly subsides into that atmospheric sound punctuated by an impeccable chord progression.  This is that progressive trance sound we’ve come to expect and love from the new Arty.

Alpha 9 – Higher Place


The resurgence of trance as a genre has been both a celebrated, a controversial topic within the dance music community over the past few years. After Insomniac pioneered the Dreamstate brand internationally, with shows across the globe, many former trance DJs began to play music that had originally brought them into the scene.

Arty, who has found a slew of success over the past few years, is also turning back to his old pure, progressive melodic trance sounds, the sounds that put him on the map years ago as Alpha 9. As he officially announced the resurgence of his alter ego, performing at the ASOT stage at Ultra.

Alpha 9 shares a new playlist, of new (IDs!) and old classics:
