Art-X, four letters for a man and an instrument. And not just any instrument, as it’s melodica. Never out without his fetish toy, Art-X revisits, remixes and composes tracks like the one that could be presented as his spiritual father: Augustus Pablo. With the one difference that Art-X is not limited to the foundations of Jamaican reggae.
Undeniably influenced by Bass Music scene, the melodicist from Tours, France navigates between oldschool remixes and innovative compositions … which results in an energetic and meditative Dub.
10 years after founding, with his brother Olo, the band Ondudground and the weblabel ODGProd, Art-X launched in 2014 his solo project. His constant creativity has led him to release several EPs and noted albums, such as « Toy Story », « Spiritual Father » or recently « Blue Lotus ». Musician since childhood, Art-X plays many French and European scenes but also international. For example, Mexico was able to appreciate his natural talent for melodies.
Sometimes accompanied by a band, often supported by a dub operator, Art-X offers on stage a stonning and stimulating live. A singular and hardly imitatable performance.
