Marlow started working with Morgenstern at the end of 2019. Such cooperation made Slava very popular. star. His YouTube channel "SLAVA MARLOW" has gained more than 3 million subscribers, and the clips "You burn like fire" and "I'm getting drunk again" scored up to 30 million views. Morgenstern drew attention to Marlow because he made a video "Morgenstern, let's do a fit." Alisher immediately felt that Slava - talented beatmaker and agreed to do joint track.

Composition was the first collaboration Young Hefner, in which Marlow acted as sound producer. But one track is the collaboration of Artyom and Alisher not limited. In January 2020, Morgenstern released an album "Legendary Dust", for which Marlow wrote beats. The album consisted of 10 songs, some shorter than two minutes. "Legendary Dust" became very popular: in VKontakte alone, the tracks from this album scored 84 million auditions! A little later, Marlow posted a video on his YouTube channel in which the beatmaker showed how the album was created. It was bold, before no one revealed the secrets of creating tracks and beats. Went to record a hit album a week.

Marlow became popular beatmaker largely due to the fact that he was not afraid violate production rules and liked experiment with sound. Now the vocal of the performer is not important, the voice can be any, the more unusual, the better. The main thing in the track - bits, it was them that Slava brought to the fore and brought to the maximum volume level.

In an interview with Forbes magazine, Slava admitted that cooperation with Alisher was incredible for him. profitable. With millions in revenue from sales and auditions, he received 30%. But at the moment Slava and Morgenstern are not working together, because Marlowe decided to become independent artist. As Slava admitted: “I want to get into the top 1 in Apple Music at least once. I want my city tour. I want to become an artist. I really want to write tracks that will be very popular.” Slava promised his fans to do one track per day throughout the whole year, one of them is sure to become a hit.

In addition to working with Morgenstern, Slava did beat-making for Nikita Masteroff, SMN, Instawomen and a whole army of other performers.


Despite its popularity, Slava still remains humble guy. He admits that his own songs are already fed up: “Sometimes I sit in a taxi, without mood, I hear that my song “I'm getting drunk again” is playing on the radio and it finally finishes me off. The song is already so tired that it makes me sick."

Glory is very different from other rappers in that he refuses swear in front of the public. “I think a lot about the responsibility that I bear to the kids who listen to me,” the beatmaker admits, “That’s why I never swear in public, I feel ashamed of it.” Artyom adds: “I’m also ashamed to swear, because my grandparents will definitely hear it. I don't want them to get upset."

But not everything is so simple in the life of a beatmaker: at the age of 21, he faced such a serious psychological problem as depression. For quite a long time he did not pay attention to the disease, but in the spring the young man began to think about suicide. Realization of this became the reason to turn to doctors and start taking drug therapy and visiting a psychotherapist. Then Slava had one fear - fear "white sheet": "I was worried that after "You're on fire" and "I'm getting drunk again" I would not write anything more worthwhile and my fans would be disappointed in me and in my work.

Slava admits that he coped with sad thoughts with the help of music: “Any music is a wonderful therapy. By creating something new, you are distracted from your inner experiences, it becomes easier for you.

At the same time, Slava believes that he does not invent anything new. "Modern music is a recycling of recycling", says the rapper. It is difficult to compose something completely new, you can just remake the old one a lot.

Marlow also owns the track Cadillac, which he wrote for the creative duo Morgenstern and Eldzhey. The song was a real hit and topped the top charts on Spotify, Apple Music and the iTunes store. Slava regrets that despite the joint work, he could not meet LJ, although he always admired his work.

Slava is now leading a solo career. Many songs became hits, for example, "Crazy", "No problems" and "Gena Gorin". The 15-second track "Tik Tok Challenge" hit the top of Apple Music, although Marlow created it simply. to dance for the camera. Slava admits that he did not expect that this track would also become a hit.

Marlow believes that in art and specifically in music there is no no rules. Therefore, he does not want to do vocals, because then he will become the same variety artist as all.
