Artikal’s Interview: http://electronicgroove.com/interview-artikal
Born & Bred in the city of London, Stefano ‘Artikal’ Ardani is no newcomer to the capital’s music scene. With a career spanning over 15 years – his musical style has, of course, changed; his roots lying in the UK Garage and Drum n Bass movements yet he is now well and truly a house & techno connoisseur.
Artikal began his musical journey at a London-based pirate radio station in the late 1990s, where he played the music he loved and built the experience he needed behind the decks. It was at this very station that Artikal began MC’ing as well as spinning records; although this was only the beginning.
By the turn of the millennium, Artikal started to become well known for his ability on the mic. So much so, he began touring alongside the greats in UK Garage such as DJ Luck & MC Neat. Travelling up and down the country, doing his thing, kept him busy for the next two years until his next calling…
In 2002, Artikal travelled to the beautiful white isle of Ibiza; it was here he discovered the alluring sounds of house and techno, it was here he fell in love with this sound. He then spent the next several years travelling the world where he explored house music to its fullest. It wasn’t until 2009, Artikal decided to wipe down the decks and begin DJing once again. He threw himself into the scene completely and became fully immersed in it.
Playing across the UK for the past 6 years, Artikal has covered some of the greatest parties and venues this country has to offer. Now a firm resident of the fastest-growing party in the capital: Abode at Studio 338. You can catch him here on a monthly basis playing alongside some of the most credible artists in the industry; artists like Nic Fanciulli, Russ Yallop,Patrick Topping and Sonny Fodera to name a few.
