HOT ARTTT are a unique and fun two-piece band who came to light in 2015 when Finish rhythmatist Vicky O’neon met Japhy Saatchi (aka Robert Strauss, Canadian born music producer, Musician and DJ) on a session at his East London based ‘WAX Recording Studio’.
Two distinctly strong yet opposing personalities united to forge something truly unique in the sound of HOT ARTTT. The result is retro yet contemporary and up to date with an 80’s twist…Often compared to Prince, Japhy’s musical influences are more succinctly linked to the likes of Sylvester, David Bowie and Parliament. This is combined with Vicky’s outrageous and fun elements of Punk, Latin, Noise / Metal and Pop has lead to the duo being scouted by X-Factor alongside attention from tastemaker DJ’s alike.
HOT ARTTT direct and shoot their own music videos, design their own instruments, write and perform their own music and design their own visuals and merchandise brand.
In their own words “HOT ARTTT is an infectiously bizarre yet colourful world of creative unity and a celebration of humanity, freedom & rally to reject conformity. HOT ARTTT deliver orgasmic, rebellious music that will push you to your most passionate limits. Fancy yourself unchained from the status quo?!”.
HOT ARTTT are currently promoting their own global brand of a theme based party and encompassing high energy mash up elements of vaudeville, drag and arena meets punk rock, while completing their highly anticipated debut album due in 2017.
The brand new single is “Neon Electricity”. Check out the band performing it live in studio here:
