This week’s performance: MARK DE CLIVE-LOWE
Mark de Clive-Lowe is a musical wizard on stage – juggling grand piano, synths, live sampling and beat making all on-the-fly, brought to life with a casual ease that’s mind-boggling. Pianist, composer, jazz musician, live remixer and electronic music producer, the Japanese-New Zealander was raised primarily in New Zealand where he learned piano from a young age developing an avid passion for jazz through his father’s record collection. In high school in NZ and Japan, he fell in love with sample-heavy 90s hip hop and early UK drum’n’bass – laying the foundation for a lifetime of genre-bending sonic adventures.
During formative decade at the epicenter of London’s underground music scene, Mark helped evolve the broken beat genre alongside some of the UK’s most forward-thinking trailblazers, establishing himself as a new voice in progressive electronic music and leading global tastemaker DJ Gilles Peterson to designate him “the man behind a million great tunes”. While in London, Mark released his albums ‘Six Degrees’ (Universal) and ‘Tide’s Arising (ABB/Columbia) and established his unique jazz-meets-electronica sound touring the world, prompting Jazziz to write with 20/20 hindsight in 2019:
“way before jazz hybridity became a worldwide phenomenon, de Clive-Lowe was busy designing its blueprint.”
