Artone is a bulgarian music producer and DJ, based in Sofia, Bulgaria. As a teenager he was highly influenced by nu-jazz, neo-soul, instrumental hip-hop and trip-hop. He started making beats in 2003 when he was only 16 years old, experimenting with various styles and genres. In 2006 he started a trip-hop band and in 2007 he began collecting records and got into DJing. Soon after that Artone discovers the artists and the sound of the American label Naked Music Recordings. This was the turning point for him, as his sound is known to be highly influenced by this movement at the time. In 2008 Artone started experimenting with producing house music on which he'll be highly dedicated in the following years.
Artone has been involved in projects with local and foreign artists such as Mr. Moon, Boyan Music, Lina Nikol, Dutchican Soul, Kinky Movement, Dwayne Motley, Marten Roberto & Nikolay Danev, Maggie Alexieva - Mey, Lubo Kirov, Funky Love Crew, the legendary bulgarian new wave formation - New Generation (Nova Generacia) and many more.
