Clara MotoGeneva Airport. July 2007. It’s a two-hour wait in Terminal 3 before boarding for sleepy-eyed Clara. She is headed for the Montreux Festival, to open for Matthew Jonson’s Cobblestone Jazz. Born in Graz, a pretty Austrian town steeped in history, she grew up in a house filled with the instruments her parents had collected over time. There was a piano on which she practiced as a teenager and a hi-fi system on which she played Kruder & Dorfmeister’s and De La Soul’s latest productions on repeat. Clara loved the idea and feel of vinyl. She cut her teeth playing records on Tuesday nights at her student bar. A small team began to form around her, soon followed by the launch of the Houseverbot label and the Birds parties, Postgarage’s flagship minimal nights.

Autumn 2006. Melbourne. Clara was selected to attend the Red Bull Academy, a platform for up-and-coming talents, invited over the course of a few weeks to perfect their studio technique and meet professionals. Also part of the talent pool that year were Flying Lotus and Douglas Greed. Which takes us back to where our story began: Geneva Airport. The Montreux Jazz Festival. Chance encounter in Terminal 3. An enthusiastic young French Dj tells her all about the label he has just set up together with a few friends, his first protégés Francesco Tristano and Danton Eeprom and his desire to develop and nurture young talent. Agoria is his name, and InFiné the label.

Fast forward to Autumn 2007. InFiné releases Clara Moto’s Glove Affair, a firm-handed, delicious minimal house cut. One year later, it’s with the release of Silently, a light and fluffy tune featuring a killer chorus that Clara, with the help of Mimu on vocals, reveals a strong penchant for pop. 2010 arrived and her first album “Polyamour” was released. Clara provides ample proof of her allegiance to electronic music. Her affection for the genre comes in many forms and she embraces it in all its diversity and spontaneity.

After releasing a handful of releases and remixes on various labels (e.g. Mina records, Freude am Tanzen, Persona Records) she returned in 2013 with an EP for InFiné namely “Joy Departed”. These 5 tracks are halfway between emotional house and intimate downtempo and shorten the waiting time until November, when her second full-length album “Blue Distance” is to be released.
