Image: 1606801 Armed with a crateful of classics from Blue Note Records’ genre-defining years,
Mark de Clive-Lowe has created a live-remix mixtape weaving from jazz to hip hop
classics, to underground house and broken beat. Recorded and improvised live in
one take, MdCL deploys his drum machine, sample pads, rhodes and keyboards
on-the-fly bringing unique perspective to moments created decades earlier by the
likes of Herbie Hancock, Duke Ellington, and Donald Byrd. From reminiscing
samples that we fell in love with through A Tribe Called Quest and J Dilla, to
reimagining sax great Joe Henderson riding a broken-afro electronic frenzy, MdCL
paints his own vision of what Blue Note means to him.
With guest cameos from rappers Bambu , John Robinson and Illa J, Inglewood
CA-singer Nia Andrews bringing voice to Ronnie Foster’s ‘Mystic Brew’, bass
master Pino Palladino underpinning Herbie’s ‘Oliloqui Valley’ and collaborations
with infamously elusive saxophonist Nomad Pendergrass soundclashing Joe
Henderson and Larry Young…

Musical polymath Mark de Clive-Lowe seems an impossibility at first sight -
juggling piano, synths, live sampling and beat making on-the-fly, all brought to life
with a casual ease that’s mind-boggling. The half-Japanese New Zealander has
called LA home for almost 8 years now and his acclaimed club night CHURCH has
taken his brand of electronic and beat-infused jazz from coast to coast and around
the globe. Equal parts jazz musician, DJ and production wizard, MdCL’s sets are a
treat for the dancers, the listeners, the progressives and the purists alike, as he
casually erases the lines between genres and eras. Available from 18.11.2016
