Group history and composition

Once, a friend gave Artyom a cassette with tracks of the "Bachelor Party" group, which then really "thundered". After listening to the songs of this collective, the young man “fell ill” with rap: he began to compose his own short compositions and record them on a tape recorder.
After graduating from school, Umrikhin and his friends created the Karat group, which immediately began performing in local clubs and quickly gained popularity. After a year, the participants decided to conquer the capital of Ukraine and went to Kiev. The first collection "Platinum Music" has become popular in the country and neighboring countries. The group received a proposal for cooperation from Dmitry Klimashenko, and the work continued successfully.

Umrikhin, under the pseudonym Artik, found time for solo collaboration with other performers, which he did well. Among the artists Artik worked with: Julia Savicheva and Dzhigan, members of the Hot Chocolate group and the Quest Pistols collective.
In 2010, the guy decides to create his own music project. So began the search for a girl who would become a universal candidate for joint cooperation. The requirements were high: bright appearance, original voice and ability to dance, but Artyom’s ambitions were serious, he wanted to “blow up” the world of pop music.
After listening to several recordings of Ani Dziuba, Artik realized that this was just what he needed. And he asked Yuri Barnash to call the girl and offer cooperation.
Asti (Anna Dziuba)
The future star of the duo Artik & Asti was born on June 24, 1990 and grew up on the banks of the Dnieper. From early childhood, the girl was fond of music, but her dream of a career as a singer seemed ghostly to her. Therefore, in order not to lose time after school, the girl immediately began to work. She tried her strength in visage, worked as an assistant lawyer, but the music continued to attract Anna.
In parallel with work, the girl recorded songs and put them on the Web with the hope that someone would hear her voice and discern talent. The wait lasted until 2010, when late in the evening Anna called a young man who introduced himself as Yuri Barnash.
