An electro pop experience between Flume and Foreign Beggars looping live like Dub FX
"Machines on the tip of his tongue and stories on his lips. As others plug in their guitars to make hearts scream, the Swiss-french musician dances sounds around his palate. Yes, beatboxing. Except that to enrobe his eloquence, he had the good idea to aim his saliva at a looper. He had to show bucket-loads of audacity to bring vocal cords and electronic cables together so naturally. An unfiltered voice serving up some gourmet electro. Forget beatboxing duels in a boxing ring. In 2018, Arthur Henry finally dares to look his producing ambitions in the eye. An ode to freedom as an electronic appetiser. Tight but unhurried.Instead of plunging his fingers into a basket of samples, Arthur Henry draws his inspirations from the source and builds small sonic cathedrals where each level is sculpted by a powerful vocal tool. A form of organic biography plunged into a bath of electricity."
Flagship of his discipline, Arthur Henry became a specialist in loopstation beatbox and presents an Electro-Hip hop show on his way. He records his singing and his beatboxing into a loopstation and layers other instruments - as an Alphorn-didgeridoo that he particularly affectionnates. On the other hand, he doesn't hesitate to surround himself with machines and with other musicians to fit the music perfectly.
An explosive live performance, but also the discovery of a whole universe. A universe oscillating between hard beats, catchy melodies and narrative lyrics.
Alone or with his band Koqa Beatbox, Arthur has played on the most beautiful stages (Montreux Jazz, Paléo, Festi'Neuch). In contests, he won the 2017 swiss beatbox championship in loopstation category. He also represented Switzerland in two categories at worldwide mouth-music contest 'Grand Beatbox Battle'.
