YP#3 – Art Crime

a1786319225_10

For the long-awaited third installment of INAUDIBLE’S Young Producers feature we head way north to Russia to rep an artist recording under the super cool moniker Art Crime. In terms of biographical detail, pretty much all we have to go on with Art Crime is the bio from his WT Records debut, which identifies him as a “Russian producer based in Moscow that offers a full range of musical emotions for the dancefloor”.

Fortunately, all the real info you need is in his music: intensely emotive house tracks that have a bittersweet edge you can almost taste. The good folks at Resident Advisor have labelled his productions “piano house”, as most of his tracks are moored to the melody of the keys — and this formula works every damn time.

His debut “Never Look Back” was released in 2014 on WT Records and its buoyant lead single “Release” was one of my fave dance tunes of last year. In 2015 he’s put out another EP courtesy of Phonica Records called “Obsession”, which is a touch darker but no less alluring. It’s house music that goes for the head bob and the heart throb and so far, this mysterious Russian is winning big time.
