Artizan Music is the pride of the UK and Sweden-based Producer/DJ duo, Jafar & Maxime Cescau. Launched back in 2005 with additional collaborator Andy Touchfingers, Artizan was set-up as an outlet for their solo and joint studio works as 'Poussez'. Alongside the pair, the label boasts a packed roster of respected 'Master Craftsmen' from around the globe. Artists include Demarkus Lewis (Grin Music, USA), Nacho Marco (Freerange, LoudEast, SPAIN), Funky Transport (20:20 Vision, UK), Pete Dafeet (Lost My Dog, UK), Rhythm Plate (Winding Road, UK), Rithma (OM, USA). Eightbitrate (Muak, ITALY), Spieltape (Global Underground, Russia), Blacksoul (Blacksoul Music, CROATIA), Terry Farley (Junior Boys Own, UK), John Larner (OM, USA) and many more..
Musically, the labels output is released across Vinyl, CD and digital formats for a tasty smorgasbord of warm, melodic techno, future Deep House, sleazy Nu-Disco and heady late night electronics...Progressive music in its truest sense.
The label's events side or 'Uptownboogiedown' to bestow its true moniker, can recall respected London residencies at East Village, Neighbourhood, The End, Notting Hill Arts Club and joint parties with club giants Mulletover, Retox and Lovebox in recent years.
The label also hosts a fortnightly Podcast rotating between Jafar's studio in Sweden and Maxime's in London. Each episode ensures a fresh mix from them, plus regular guest appearances from Artizan's Artist roster and beyond. To download the latest head to:
