MARK de CLIVE - LOWE


MARK de CLIVE - LOWE
PIANST | DEEJAY

Half Japanese, half New Zealander LA-based musical polymath Mark de Clive-Lowe seems an impossibility at first sight - juggling keyboards, synths, live sampling and beat making on-the-fly, all brought to life with a casual ease that’s mind-boggling. His acclaimed latest releases “Heritage” and “Heritage II” see him making a deep-dive into his ancestral Japanese motherland roots, while other recent releases and collaborations see him remixing the likes of Whitney Houston and John Coltrane for the dancefloor, exploring spiritual jazz with living-legend Dwight Trible, creating experimental hip hop with Detroit’s 14KT and helming the all-star Japanese jazz project Ronin Arkestra – and that’s just in 2019!

Equal parts electronic production wizard, avant-jazz improviser and composer MdCL’s sets are a treat for the dancers, the listeners, the progressives and the purists alike - as he casually erases lines between genres and eras with the finess of your favorite DJ and craftsmanship of your favorite producer - only, he’s creating everything you hear live on the spot, in real time as it hits your eardrums. MdCL has released 16 albums and hundreds of remixes and collaborations as he continues to tour his brand of electronic and beat-infused jazz from coast to coast and around the globe.
