About CHURCH: "If Duke Ellington had been a DJ, this might be what he would have done.” (LA Weekly)

- - -

Musical polymath Mark de Clive-Lowe seems an impossibility at first sight - juggling piano, synths, live sampling and beat making all on-the-fly, brought to life with a casual ease that’s mind-boggling. In his formative London years, the half-Japanese New Zealander helped evolve broken beat, establishing himself as an undeniable voice in progressive electronic music. Since 2008, MdCL has called Los Angeles home where his acclaimed club night CHURCH has taken his brand of technology and beat-infused jazz mash-up from coast to coast and around the globe. Equal parts jazz musician, composer and live production wizard, MdCL’s sets are a treat for the listeners, the dancers, the progressives and the purists alike - as he casually erases the lines between genres and eras. Whether he’s remixing classic Blue Note Records in real time, on stage joined by the likes of Kamasi Washington, Nia Andrews or Eric Harland, improvising solo piano or creating live soundtracks to classic film material, MdCL is an artist in constant evolution, reaching for that next level.

“a musical force unlike any other” -
Pegasus Warning
Pegasus Warning
Pegasus Warning aka Guillermo E. Brown currently features every night on the Late Late Show With James Corden as the drummer in Karen, the show's house band. Guillermo's main project, Pegasus Warning, is a supernova of experimental R&B and soulful synths conceived while touring with Jamie Lidell. Since then, Guillermo's dynamic visions have prompted collaborations with artists such as Twin Shadow, Das Racist, Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear, Saul Williams, Mocky, Spoek Mathambo and many more. His transcendental live shows have graced residencies at The Ace Hotel and Bowery Electric, headlined renowned venues like Brooklyn Bowl, and commanded the stages of Terminal 5, The Brooklyn Museum, The Roxy, El Cid, and more. After a year-long hiatus, Pw is set to release a new batch of work in June this year under his own imprint, Melanin Harmonique Records. The album will be preceded by the much anticipated "Come Close" single coming out on April 29th.

"Pegasus Warning has a divine ability to shapeshift through many mediums: percussionist, vocalist, writer, producer, performance artist, visionary. His sound similarly takes on the most unlikely of forms, straddling the line between funked-out mutant R&B, experimental rock, stunning to-the-gut soul, "broken electronics, strange textures and pulsing rhythms"

"Pegasus Warning's sound was the right kind of shambles, full of left turns and quick stops and obvious reference points beaten to a pulp, all delivered with a sense of joy in the process of figuring things out. Expertise and tradition are just one kind of instrument."
– New York Times

"Step into a territory that's been heavily trodden recently – R&B fractured with rock and avant-garde influences – and make it as intimately personal as a fingerprint."
