Depends on where you want to use them. If you want them in a DB query,
use $wpdb->escape(). If it's for usage as HTML attribute, use
attribute_escape(). There are more functions like this, as I said,
depends on the specific case, which one to use.

What seems to be the problem?

	$artist_id = sanitize_foo($_GET['artist_id']);

simply make sure that your plugin gets to handle /artists/a/ (as
described before). There's no need for further rewriting.
