MARK DE CLIVE-LOWE REMIX: LIVE

JOHN SIMMONS

MARK de CLIVE-LOWE (MdCL) is "an underground phenom..." - Okayplayer
...
"(the) avant-garde soulful Pianist/DJ/Producer delivers his lifetime of journeys to different musical ports in a concise package, seamlessly... transporting not just in genre but in emotion and spirit." - Huffington Post

MARK de CLIVE-LOWE (MdCL) is one of the most innovative producers and live performers you will find anywhere.

Whether you call him artist, producer, composer, pianist, performer, DJ, or selecta, titles are impartial to the marvel of Mark de Clive-Lowe (MdCL). Many try to classify this impressively fertile music journey, yet to identify with only one label belies the heavy scope of the ride. The piano set the course, the keyboard is the vehicle, and with the drum machine as the fuel, the relentless skill of MdCL is underscored by a rare sonic sensibility. He's an accomplished musician, originally sowing his oats in straight-ahead jazz, before taking the music far beyond. Anchored by the duality of his Japanese and New Zealander parentage and ignited by a love of playing piano at the age of four, it is no wonder this multi-national phenom has seen his explosive natural gifts blaze across the globe from NZ to the US, UK, Europe, Asia, Cuba and South Africa.

A devastating live performer, the MdCL experience is marked by impromptu studio production created on stage from scratch, using drum machines, keyboards and effects. The end result: live remixes birthed on stage for each and every gig. With bold chops like this, to call him "prolific" is an understatement, having contributed to over 250 releases and being a first-call collaborator for a wide range of artists, including Jill Scott, Jody Watley, Leon Ware (Marvin Gaye/Michael Jackson/Maxwell), Dame Shirley Bassey, Sandra St. Victor (The Family Stand/Chaka Khan), amongst a slew of others.

Now based in LA after a decade entrenched in London, MdCL is ready to unveil his new album, Take the Space Trane on Tru Thoughts Records - feature collaboration with the Rotterdam Jazz Orchestra big band. It's the latest step in the evolution of MdCL, who has cemented his reputation as the go-to man for anyone wanting his unique take on club music, progressive soul and urban alternative. Jazz big band tradition and the dancefloor collide head-on with arrangemtents of MdCL club classics, new compositions and dancefloor work out reinterpretation of the Duke Ellington-made-famous standard Caravan. MdCL is a revolutionary Quincy Jones for a new generation, melding the science of beat-making with the fluidity of organic musicianship.

MdCL's CHURCH is his clubnite in residence in LA and NYC and touring worldwide - equal parts jazz club, live remix experiment and dance party. With guests including the likes of Mark Kelley (The Roots), James Genus (Herbie Hancock/Chick Corea), Jean Grae (Talib Kweli/The Roots), Nia Andrews (Janelle Monae/Common), Miguel Atwood-Ferguson (Suite for Ma Dukes), Casey Benjamin (Robert Glasper Experiment) and countless more alongside guest DJs including Questlove, DJ Spinna, Rich Medina and The Gaslamp Killer, CHURCH is a clubnite experience unlike anything else... wepresentCHURCH.com

MdCL's potential is beyond convention. He's one who can take it all on the road like no one else, with a solid fan base that bridges cities as far reaching as LA, NYC, Atlanta, London, Paris, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Tokyo and Sydney.
