Modern funk playground meets Artis Boris debut single

Artis Boris releases his debut single "Can You Dance?", where the skills of a jazz pianist with an interest in synths, analogue sounds and beats are combined. His strong entry into the music scene puts him in the same category as Dam Funk, Temu, Dan Kye, and XL Middleton.

"Can You Dance?" is the first single lifted from the forthcoming debut EP "Easy Living". Asking the question in a hauntingly beautiful manner is the freshly crowned "Female Artist of the Year" - Rita Ray. Harsh vocals are backed by layers of synths, experimental sounds and a deep bass line. Artis Boris brings dancefloor appeal that makes this a sure shot for g-funk DJs and future funk fanatics.

Artis Boris tells more about the single creating process: 

One day I shared my groove idea with Rita Ray, she liked it and wrote lyrics and the top line. The groove and core of the track were created in my home studio, later we recorded the vocals in Rita’s home closet (wardrobe) with an AKG D330BT microphone, known as an ABBA microphone, that gave a warm and pleasant sound. Guitar parts were recorded at Kristen’s apartment. 

The roots of Artis Boris's solo-producer idea started back in 2014 when he started his jazz piano studies at Riga Cathedral Choir school. Back then he had inspiring friends who did music production using computers and he was lucky to have sound engineering lessons too. His learning curve took 9 years of constant experimenting with sounds, rhythm and harmonies and now, 9 years later he is finally able to share his work, vibes and knowledge. The short answer is - he just likes to create daily, and he enjoys the process of creation.
