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.

DJ Day
Also known as DAY, DJ DAY and Damien Beebe.

Day (Damien Beebe) is a DJ, producer and musician hailing from Palm Springs, California. With an illustrious career spanning two decades, he was recently named “Palm Spring’s Finest” and for good reason: His contributions to the various avant-garde music scenes in southern California run deep. From the historic Root Down parties of Los Angeles to the infamous Do-Over, Day has garnered respect from peers and fans alike for his eclectic, well-executed DJ sets and diverse taste in music. His debut album, The Day Before (MPM, 2008) rose to the top of numerous notable playlists including those of Giles Peterson, Jeremy Sole and Philly's Cosmo Baker.

Not content being defined by one craft, he gracefully transitions between being a DJ/turntablist, musician and beat maker; a talent best exemplified by his ambitious forthcoming release Land Of 1000 Chances. He has toured the world many times over as a solo artist and with fellow musicians Aloe Blacc, Exile and People Under the Stairs. Amongst numerous accolades, he was nominated for Song of the Year awards both by the BBC and The Village Voice and his music has been licensed for commercials by DC Shoes, Red Bull Music Academy, Rane/Serato, and numerous full length feature films. Day recently returned from from touring Russia, Europe and New Zealand to finish the recording and mixing of 1000 Chances.

Currently, Day is working with Thes One on the management and expansion of the artist collective Piecelock 70 and holds a weekly night at the renowned Ace Hotel in Palm Springs. Land Of 1000 Chances is scheduled to drop in January 2013, with booking underway on a world tour to support the release.
