Describe your sound/music in a few words: ARTEKK is making music that is driven by a desire to motivate, inspire, comfort and spread love and joy to all those that hear it.
Spotify link to one of your most recent original song which you'd submit in priority to the Community's users: https://open.spotify.com/track/4FKXDaG4OqfNaW8855JjKH
“Inside a Stone,” could be described as a unique mash between electro pop with some dubstep influences, especially in the way the beats hit hard! The track immediately stands out due to its lush piano groove, but the beats that kick in actually add a dash of power to the song. The vocals are beautiful and emotional as well, giving the song a unique touch.

Who are your musical inspirations: ARTEKK has a vast array of musical influences however he accredits the pivotal influences and inspiration in his life to genres such as Rave 90‘s, Hip Hop, Punk, Jazz, HardTekk and D&B. In the 90’s he was drummer and also played guitar in 2 Punk Bands. This all culminates in ARTEKK producing a musical experience that is enjoyable, easy going and fun music and infused with positive energy to allow for an immersive experience that brings feelings of elation and happiness.
Is there anything else you'd want to add to help users to get to know you better:
Somewhere in between the energy of electronic music and the melodic elements of modern breakbeat, there lies a distinctive sonic formula that stands out as the backbone of ARTEKK’s sound. This talented artist is all about creating innovative and fun soundscapes, which set the bar higher in terms of trying different ideas and blending various influences in order to create music that feels utterly personal and dynamic.
Recently, ARTEKK wrapped up a new project named "So Good". This release is the perfect calling card for the artist, and it is a great display of passion, focus and excellent at the core of his sound and vision.

I'm a Jamaican 🇯🇲 DJ that blends trap & hip-hop beats with catchy dancehall lyrical flows. My previous song INCHES has over 200K streams (20K spotify), below is my latest Milligram.
Can only the artist himself post the song here for your considerations? I ask because I'm not an artist, but I work with some in Brazil
