Sorry Sold Out

Recordstore Exclusive Vinyl LP, sleeve signed by Sylvern Mathurin.

Poté (Sylvern Mathurin) is St. Lucian-born, London-bred and Paris based, electronic artist, due to release his forthcoming album “A Tenuous Tale Of Her” on Bonobo’s label OUTLIER this summer. With an impressive, unique sound, his new album is written as a theatrical play, a theme which also leans into the creative direction behind his record. The first single ‘Young Lies’, taken from the album, features musician and singer, songwriter, Damon Albarn of Blur and Gorillaz. Poté has formally created remixes for the likes of Gorillaz’ ‘Trans’ and Little Dragon’s ‘Hold On’.


He has had multiple previous releases including debut digital album “Spiral, My Love” released in 2018 on Benji B’'s Deviation Music imprint followed by “Waters of Praslin” EP in 2019. This year he put out EP “Rose” in January along with latest single ‘Pearls’ in August on his own label Versicolor.


Playing live, he has supported Bonobo on tour in Europe as well as singer and drummer Georgia for six dates in the UK. In 2018 he played an intimate sold out live show for “Spiral, My Love” album launch at Servant Jazz Quarters. Further headline shows in Paris, Brussels, Milan, Prague and more, with festival performances at The Great Escape, Park Life, All Points East and Dour. He played an incredible closing set at LA CRÉOLE in Montreuil, France for Boiler Room in May 2019 followed by, a year later, a home session livestream for Colors x Studios.
