Based in Kyiv, at 14 Ars started to work as a producer with some of the most influential american rappers in the hip-hop underground scene such as Bones, Chris Travis and Xavier Wulf. After being part of Bones’ label @teamsesh until 2014, the young ukrainian producer started working on WWWINGS project with GHOSTE2X, a guy from Russia that Ars met online. Raised from the ashes of BWWWOYS in the heart of what the artists themselves called “The Post-Soviet Hell”, WWWINGS was an experimental electronic group born in 2015, consisting of 3 artists from Russia and Ukraine: GXXOST, AWRWSW (now known as Ars Was Taken) and Lit Eyne. After realising several Eps, their first album PHOENIXXX re-issued on @planetmurecords presents collaborations with artists such as Endgame, Chino Amobi and Dj Heroin.
Trio’s Music marked the advent of a new type of industrial electronic music and the beginning for a new generation of accelerated post apocalyptic dance music.
In october 2018 Ars Was Taken published his first self-release “Hold on 2 to me”, a 15-tracks album composed with a more conscious approach and many collborations both with producers and singers.
