Who is Artan?

We’ve been following Artan since the very beginning of his career and have included most of his tracks inside our Spotify playlist at one point or another.

But who is Artan? We decided it was time to find out by asking him ten quick-fire questions…

How old are you?

  • 24

Where are you from?

  • I’m from Wood Green in North London but was previously living in Harrow (North West London).

What are three things you love?

  • I love creating in any shape or form, playing table tennis, and peace.

What are three things you hate?

  • I hate mushrooms, spiders, and people who abuse their power.

If you weren’t doing music, what would you be doing instead?

  • If I wasn’t doing music I reckon I’d be an aspiring entrepreneur. I’ve always been selling stuff at markets and thinking of business ideas, so I reckon something along those lines.

How would you describe your music in one word?

  • Anxiety

Who makes up your team?

  • It’s just me and the mandem really, I’ve never had management or anyone inside the scene vouching for me. Also, I have my producer 33Beats who I’ve been working very closely with.

Which other UK artists (from outside your team) do you rate?

  • Young Adz. HEX.

Who is your favourite artist of all time?

  • Drizzy. He’s just been so consistent I can’t really pick anyone else

What’s been the highlight of your music career so far?

  • I recently performed on a cruise ship out in Ibiza at Anchored Festival alongside Yxng Bane, Not3s, and a few others – which was mad. Wish I could do that again!

You can find Artan on Spotify, Instagram and Twitter.

And he’s a regular on YouTube channels such as GRM Daily and SBTV. Here’s his latest video for track Play Your Position, featuring Coco.
