CloZee at U Street Music Hall
1115 U Street NW
Washington, DC, 20009
This event is 18 and over
Hailing from Toulouse, CloZee is a young music producer who seamlessly combines technical precision with a wild imagination. An accomplished instrumentalist, she began playing the classical guitar at age 11. Influenced by edIT, Bonobo, The Widdler and Amon Tobin, she started producing electronic music at the age of 16.
She recently won the 'Best International Newcomer of 2013' at the UK Glitch-Hop Award.
Her tracks defy genres, oscillating between Glitch-Hop, Glitchstep, Trip-Hop, Dubstep and World Music. She created her own place in the glitch community, thanks to a unique, highly surprising style, mixing powerful basslines, funky off beat percussion and emotional cinematic sounds. A musical identity which led her to play in the USA (22 dates tour), Canada (Vancouver), India (Bombay and Bangalore), Berlin, and more than 20 cities in France, alongside artists like Bonobo, Gramatik, 12th Planet, Zomboy, EZ3kiel, Tipper, Phutureprimitive, Stwo, N'to, Virus Syndicate, Tha New Team, Mefjus, Optiv & BTK, Proleter, Kursa, Disprove...
Runner-up of several remix contests (launched by artists like Mr. Bill, Asian Trash Boy, Crazy Daylight, Daenine...), CloZee was spotted by respected labels such as Gravitas Recordings, Glitch Hop Community, Adapted Records, Digital Whomp, Empathy Recordings, MOR Records, The Waxhole...
Her albums are the fruits of an introspective journey and a musical quest. Sometimes in reflection of a dancer's style and personality. Since 2012, her collaboration with OckeFilms, a company of young videomakers passionated by urban culture, resulted in the creation of more than 30 sounds for international famous dancers. This opportunity helped reflect on her music abilities, but also helped create strong relationships within the dance community.
