Art Supplies

A 13 track deep house album (58m 1s) — released December 13th 2010 on Loungin Recordings
As an accomplished musician, Arthur Pochon (aka Art Bleek) has evolved and developed his production craft over the last ten years and his latest opus 'Art Supplies' weaves elements of house, funk, soul, jazz, rare groove and more into a rich musical tapestry. With further help from vocalists such as Ursula Rucker, Voice, Nya, Charlie Sputnik and Airelle Besson 'Art Supplies' reveals many depths and textures over thirteen tracks of shimmering, heart-felt grooves. In 2001, his music drew the attention of several recording labels which released tracks on various compilations under the Art Bleek name. He started actively performing on the Paris club scene as a saxophonist alongside deejays and with various projects and also started spinning an eclectic blend of jazz, nu-jazz, broken beats, bossa-nova, world, soul and rare groove records in hip Parisian bars and restaurants. Towards the end of 2004, Arthur hooked up with Loungin'Recordings and released his first CD album which also included a bonus DVD of Arthur's first short film which he wrote, directed and scored. 'Art Supplies' is his long awaited Loungin' follow up. From the dream like 'Pain or Pleasure' featuring Ursula Rucker to the sunshine drenched funk of 'Into Knowledge' that sees other main vocalist Charlie Sputnik team up with Blackniff and DJ Pudge MC and the house-edged sounds of 'Friends' featuring Mandel Turner and the boogie-funk mantra of 'Right On' that teams Sputnik up with trumpet player Airelle Besson, Art Bleek weaves his keyboards, sax, flute and programming into 100% studio magic. Arthur is now working with a new French imprint called Sharivari Records, he will also release another album shortly for Stefan Robbers EevoNext imprint and he is also working on his fourth album, a new project called 'Bleek & Sputnik' which is already touring with Novena Carmel (daughter of Sly Stone) following this summer's 'Nine to Five' EP on loungin'. The future is indeed, looking Bleek. A Launch Party for Art Supplies will take place at the Notting Hill Arts Club this December.
