Q: Tell us about your new single.
The track has already been played in the Emerging Artist Hour with Dylan Berry on DASH Radio. “Hold Me” focuses on creating lush synthesizer driven soundscapes with a more dynamic flow. The track has a nice modern indie-pop vibe, with a fantastic vocal performance and a truly energetic beat that contrasts beautiful with the melodic synth pads.
Q: Do you have any other plans relating to this release? A video?
I pitched the track to some radio stations and it will be broadcasted on Radio Saint Dié and Hits 1 Radio France.
Q: Do you write and release or do you plan each release? Any plans for an EP or album?
I plan my releases. On July 29 my second full-length album “We can be something” is scheduled for release. This amazing new album features 14 tracks. This is actually quite an amazing achievement, especially if you consider the fact that many producers these days are aiming to release a fast sequence of singles, rather than focusing on a full-length album. While digital streaming platforms might influence these choices, sometimes it feels like we are missing out on the full experience of listening to an entire album from an artist. Thankfully, ARTEKK didn’t follow the usual trends and decided to focus on creating an amazing full-length, which is all about giving the music more space.
Q: Are you currently working on any projects we should look out for?
Main focus is on the album release and promoting it properly.
