The Berlin-based (mainly) electronic music record label Leonizer Records has released a kickarse 3 output plus remix Ep!: “Androgyn“.
The 3 original tracks produced by Claek are solid pearls, not easy to find everywhere. The sharp and groovy remix treatment is done by Mr. Kobain.
Paris-born Claek has always lived in music, and lucky for us, he’s not gonna move anytime soon. As a teenager who cared more about graffiti than school, it helped him go through the long days. 4 years of jazz school later, calmed down, he consolidated this academic education that will take him so long to free himself from, but which also represents one of his strongest asset. Bassist in rock bands, sound engineer with old studio sharks for pop stars, he then realizes that his beat box brings him way more joy than his guitar. His first visit to the Miami Winter Conference is the turning point. From now on he will make this housy electronic sound that makes people smile.
A few solo Eps, a few collaborations with musician friends, Djing here and there, even becoming sound selector for french Department Store Les Galeries Lafayette, every step gets him close to that big electro pop success that brings him on ever y radio, tv & festival around the world. That is also the moment where he discovers the priceless luxury of being alone and, as Claek, locks himself, sometimes for weeks in a row, in New York, Bangkok or Tokyo to compose a more personal, darker IDM sound, closer to a borderline techno between club and electronica, wanting to create an electronic music that would make you dance without wearing too short a dress. A Braindance child from the French Touch 2.0.
Kobain is a parisian producer who started alongside Yan Wagner and Gesaffelstein in the band Flying Turns. between cold techno, house and 90’s baselines, he released his first EP “KOBAINATION” on Enchanté Records .
