Drummer with Tigran Hamasyan (Nonesuch/ECM) or in the Erik Truﬀaz Quartet (Warner Parlophone), Arthur Hnatek is an upcoming international renowned jazz musician.
With his new project SWIMS, the 28 year old swiss drummer explores the frontier between improvisation and electronica/dance music. His ﬁrst EP “ELLE” came out in 2017 through the New York (his home for 5 years) independent community Susan Records. Recently, he works from Berlin where the techno culture has inﬂuenced his approach.
After only existing for 1 year, Arthur has performed SWIMS at La Cigale in Paris, Kantine am Berghain (Berlin), at the Montreux Jazz Festival, Label Suisse Festival, Cully Jazz Festival, Bscene Festival, Jazz Contreband festival or during a residency at Südpol in Luzern.
