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.

Art-X, quatre lettres pour un homme et un instrument. Et pas n’importe lequel puisqu’il s’agit du mélodica. Jamais sans son jouet fétiche, Art-X revisite, remixe et compose des morceaux à l’instar de celui qu’on pourrait présenter comme son père spirituel : Augustus Pablo. A la différence près qu’Art-X ne se limite pas aux fondations du reggae jamaïcain.
Indéniablement influencé par la scène Bass Music, le mélodiciste originaire de Tours navigue entre les remixes oldschool et les compositions innovantes… le tout pour un Dub énergique et méditatif.

10 ans après avoir fondé, avec son frère Olo, le groupe Ondudground et le weblabel ODGProd, Art-X lance en 2014 son projet solo. Sa constante créativité l’amènera à sortir plusieurs EP et albums remarqués, comme « Toy Story », « Spiritual Father » ou dernièrement « Blue Lotus ». Musicien depuis l’enfance, Art-X écume les scènes françaises, européennes mais aussi mondiales. Le Mexique a par exemple pu apprécier son talent naturel pour les mélodies.

Parfois accompagné d’un groupe, souvent épaulé d’un dub opérateur, sur scène Art-X propose un live à la fois planant et stimulant. En somme, une prestation singulière et difficilement imitable.

Art-X è un compositore, suona la tastierista e melodica dall’età di 16.

Ha fondato con il fratello la band Ondubground nel 2007. Dopo l’uscita di 15 album ed EP, e numerose collaborazioni con ad esempio Biga Ranx e Brother Culture, Art-X ha deciso nel 2014 di creare il suo progetto solista, con l’uscita del suo primo album dedicato al suo strumento preferito, la melodica.

Intitolato « Toy Story », l’album è composto da 11 tracce attraverso 9 collaborazioni: Ondubground, Roots Raid, Dawa Hifi, Panda Dub, Manu digitali, Hatman, Lab Frequency, Miniman e Brain Damage.

Nell’ agosto del 2014, Art-X è tornato con il suo secondo album « Cook & Curry ». Quest’ album si ispira al reggae-roots classico. La musica ci porta in un viaggio attraverso la storia della musica reggae, supportato dal tocco magico di X-Art e della sua Melodica.

I due album sono disponibili in download gratuito sulla net-label www.odgprod.com .

Nel 2015, Art-X torna con l’ EP«Melodica Circuit» in collaborazione con Atili Bandalero.

Sul palco, Art-X suona la melodica e mix dal vivo, dalle radici del dub al dub stepper da solo o con l’artista di Flying Fish (batteria, mix).
