In a feedback loop of adventure, music, and love, CloZee and her fans are ready to let the force of the sound carry everyone to places they have never been before. Being based simultaneously in Toulouse, France and on stages across the world makes this electronic musician stand out. With inspirations far afield from music - a painting, the weather, a dream - in her craft, Chloé Herry’s derivations are difficult to trace. Under the broad structure of electronic and bass music, and informed by sound the world over, Clozee finds her best fit in World Bass’ corner. CloZee has performed on many continents: from Coachella to India, on four US Tours, and everywhere around her native France. She is a standout on the roster of her labels,Gravitas Recordings & Otodayo Records. Followers in many languages drive streams counted in millions. But art’s ability to transport others is this talented producer’s special magic - manifest whenever someone presses play. In the way the clean curve of a Japanese roof is understated and exotic, CloZee pulls her power from a bold simplicity. Her classical guitar roots allow her an informed, melodic space that draws influence from flamenco to edIT of The Glitch Mob. This melting pot of instrumentation and cinematic flair puts listeners in a mood to move, with international crowds now cultivating the evolution of her genre. Chloé says she rarely lays down only electronic sounds. Her favorite sources are organic and real. To describe her life, CloZee grins and dramatizes her mind exploding. With traction growing stateside, she is set to expand far beyond the transformational festivals and tours where she grew the same roots that nourished Bassnectar, Beats Antique, andBonobo. CloZee is breaking through the canopy and into the sun. Come see her fly.
Goopsteppa is Montreal raised Producer/Dj/Artist Alex E.
Fascinated by music, arts and their effects on people from an early age, he was introduced to Djing and electronic music culture in 2007.
After many years of performing as a DJ, he started releasing his own musical creations in the early spring of 2013, making an instant impression on the scene with his blend of futuristic melodic bass music, subversive soundscapes, captivating beats and surreal textures.
This lead to an appearance on Seattle based Mycelium Music, followed by releases on the Luminosity Project winter solstice compilation and an EP on bay area’s Street Ritual Records(not to mention many free releases on SoundCloud!).
After appearing at various events last summer throughout western canada, as well as Austin, Texas and at Burning Man’s Fractal Planet, he started developing a name for himself and a network of friends, fellow artists and promoters.
He currently resides in the snowy mountains of interior BC, spending most his time in his studio or out in the mountains. With a deep passion for music, a heart full of love and inspiration, you can expect to hear many new pieces coming soon!
Spoken Bird draws influence from glitch, breaks, and hip hop, blending them into one cohesive sound that plunges the listener into the depths of their own imagination. Gorgeous instrumentation laid over glitchy drum breaks and supremely creative synth patterns fuse with psychedelic sound scapes as Spoken Bird paints master pieces on silence with sound. Are you ready?
Notable performances include Symbiosis Gathering, Enchanted Forest Gathering, Global Eclipse, Lucidity Festival, Serenity Gathering, and Pirate Party!
