About the event


At 24-years-old, Artemas, has only been releasing music since late 2020 but is fast developing a distinctive alternative pop sound through his relatable songwriting and captivating melodies. The self-taught multi-instrumentalist and unashamed pop music fan is a student of the YouTube generation of songwriters/producers. Hailing from Oxfordshire, but now based in London, Artemas made the most of being restricted to his bedroom over the past couple of years, spending most waking hours during that time honing his studio craft. With release of his pretty mixtape earlier this year, led by single “if you think i’m pretty,” he garnered global attention with hundreds of millions of streams, while being named an Artist to Watch by both Hypebeast and Ones to Watch. Now, he continues his takeover with “i like the way you kiss me” zooming to over 520M streams, reaching #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on Billboard 200 Ex-Us chart.


Growing up in Iran, Asal lived in a musical household. Her mom sang, dad played the keyboard and Asal got a guitar for her 7th birthday. Asal moved to Vancouver only speaking Farsi and mostly listening to Persian music. Picking up English from school and being exposed to new music, Asal started to make original music and develop her sound. From her bedroom setup, the 20 year old infuses deep raw vocals with alternative hip-hop production. Asal finished her first North American tour supporting Artemas and gearing up to release her debut EP. With the momentum from releasing Headache and Liars & Players, Asal is building her own world and pushing the boundaries of alternative music.
