In a scene, where many producers have never learned to play an instrument, Arthur Pochon aka Art Bleek is an exception. At the age of 6, he started playing the piano. Following his graduation from the prestigious Paris Conservatory after 12 years of studying saxophone and music theory, he went to the no less famous Boston Berklee College of Music on a full scholarship. After all this intensive studying, he started to work in a major Paris recording studio, where he complemented his knowledge with the handicraft of professional music production. In 2001, Art Bleek started to release his first tracks on compilations. He played the saxophone alongside deejays and started spinning an eclectic blend of Jazz, Nu-Jazz, Broken Beats, Bossa-Nova, World and Electro Jazz records in Hip Parisian bars and restaurants himself. At the end of 2004, Art Bleek signed a record contract with Lounging Records. He released his first album there, followed by a single, two EPs and a remix album. In 2007, Art got really busy, his sound mutating more and more into the direction of Techno, Minimal and Deep House, but still keeping his typical jazzy twist which makes his tracks so special. Outstanding releases on labels like Rush Hour and Resopal Red followed. For Connaisseur, Art gave three outstanding and diversified tunes. "Euphorized" is pure early 90ies XTC-feeling. Positive in every way, this track puts a smile on everybody's face. It's Deep House with a techy touch made for special moments in the club. "Night Station" is the most functional and tool-oriented tune on this EP, pushing and sort of dark. Perfect DJ-food. "Snow Landscape" may perhaps be the standout tune on this record. Crystallized bell-ish sounds drill their way into your ears right from the first minute to set you into a hypnotic state. Detroitish pads and jazzy beats and bass are added and create a wonderful musical trip.
