Arts The Beatdoctor

Arts The Beatdoctor

Arts was literally discovered by rapper Pete Philly in 2005 when he found his demo lying in a studio. Impressed by his then jazz-influenced, hip-hop production, Arts was introduced to Perquisite and offered a deal on Unexpected Records. This was realized with the official debut of his 2006 Fragments EP and 2007 full-length Transitions.

The releases were recognized internationally that year when P-Vine Records licensed the LP in Japan with support of a 12″ single for “The Anthem.” Arts followed up in 2008 with Progressions, a 4-track EP on US-based label Beats Broke. Exploration continued in 2009 as he developed Arts The Beatdoctor’s Gattaca, a live performance series of his alternate soundtrack to the film Gattaca.

Looking to develop a denser sound, Arts formed The Q4 together with fellow Dutch producers SENSE and STW. Their Darker Days EP and Sound Surroundings LP were released in 2010 by Germany’s Project Mooncircle. The full-length was then re-released in Holland by Top Notch, and their single “One of These Days” became a certified hit when it reached #1 on the Dutch iTunes chart.

Arts has shared the stage with Anouk, Pete Philly & Perquisite, Camp Lo, and Eskmo. After extensive touring with backing musicians in Europe, Russia, and the United States, he has returned to his solo roots. Through his relationship with Native Instruments, Arts developed an intricate system of hardware and software enabling him to perform, build, and remix complete tracks on stage through a series of live-sampling inputs and looping sequences.

On September 24th 2013, Arts will release his solo follow-up to 'Progressions' which reverse-integrates techniques constructed in his live setup. The EP called 'Lazy Thunder' (LOW015) will be released on Lowriders Recordings digitally and on limited colored vinyl 12″.
