"Drummer and percussionist, Art Konik is an accomplished musician working in different musical fields from jazz to world music and leftfield. While pursuing his numerous collaborations with various bands, he starts working on his own project, based on home-made samples and loops, ranging from ethnic and traditional music to more jazz structures. The versatility of his talent is particularly reflected in jazz pieces like 'Finger', 'Hum' or 'Mingpark', three nu-jazz floor-fillers based on heavy bass lines, subtle keyboard work, vocal samples, free blowing horns and the particular Art Konik off-beat. With the release of his first album Vendetta Society, including some guest such as free-jazz legends Bobby Few (piano on 'Finger') or Jef Sicard (saxophonist and leader of the cult band Full Moon Ensemble) and a couple of remixes by the like of Meitz, U.F.O., Playin'4 The City or Abstract Soul, Art Konik is now building his live project, with the help of Smadj (French artist signed on Melt2000, long-time friend, collaborator and producer of the album)."
