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 the ‘World Bass’ corner.
CloZee has performed on many continents: from Coachella to India, on five North American 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, and Bonobo. CloZee is breaking through the canopy and into the sun. Come see her fly.
Armée d’une précision technique et d’une imagination sauvage, Chloé aka CloZee parcourt le monde avec ses productions électros ethniques combinant bass music, trip-hop et world music.
À tout juste 25 ans, la toulousaine affiche un parcours impressionnant : award de la meilleure découverte aux UK Glitch-Hop Awards, une dizaine d’EPs produits et plus de 300 shows à son actif (France, USA, Canada, Angleterre, Ukraine, Inde, Allemagne, Israël, Costa Rica…).
Elle connait un succès grandissant dans les plus grands Festivals Nord Américains tels que Coachella, Shambhala, Lightning in A Bottle, Camp Bisco, Envision, Sonic Bloom… et le phénomène promet d’arriver en Europe en 2018 (Ozora Festival).
Frameworks (direct support – both nights)
Rich, warm compositions bursting with blossoming strings, pulsing bass, and haunting vocals fill the catalog of Frameworks, Manchester-based performer and producer Matthew James Brewer. Adding his sophomore LP, KINGS, to his previous two EP’s for Loci Records last year, Brewer has built an arsenal of deeply personal songs that move the body and mind. KINGS featured Ninja Tune’s Jono McCleery, who joins fellow UK standout JP Cooper among the high-profile vocalists who have contributed to the Frameworks project across downtempo, organic house, and subtle hip-hop. His debut album, Tides, released in 2015 by First Word Records first thrust the producer into the international spotlight, granting him a following in the United States.
Frameworks has made a splash on the North American festival circuit, performing at Coachella, Electric Forest, Lightning in a Bottle, Camp Bisco, Global Eclipse Gathering, and the 20th anniversary of Shambhala. He’s also toured in Europe alongside Loci Records founder Emancipator. This year, Brewer has been touring the Frameworks live band lineup with drummer Cory Eberhard (Pretty Lights, Dubskin), violinist Jessica Borth (Spectacle), and bassist Keith Thomas (O-Neb, Philsh). Taking the Frameworks catalog to new and evocative heights, the live band brings a depth and focus that demands to be experienced.
Infinite Geometry (supporting Friday, October 19th)
Koresma (supporting Saturday, October 20th)
Koresma is the chill, electronic music project of Ryan Lindberg. Koresma aims to provide a humanistic approach to the electronic music landscape.The lifestyle based music provides a sonic escape for listener’s to find a safe space for relaxation and inspiration. It seems YouTubers truly grasp the vision for Lindberg’s music because they have grown fond of using Koresma as background music for skateboarding and surfing – sports that happen to be his hobbies – and travel videos such as Sailing La Vagabonde, a couple who keeps a video journal of sailing trips around the world.
Over the next year Koresma will be releasing four EP’s based off of a compass theme under the title “Next Frontier”. Inside of the Next Frontier experience there will be four individually released EP’s; the first being East, with West, North, and South following in sequence. The idea of “Next Frontier” and the EP’s it will be comprised of are a compass for self-exploration representing the journey to find your path and a reflection of all the places you visit in between. Based off of his road trip across the US, his album “Next Frontier” is a combination of his four EP’s and paints sonic landscapes of the different places he visited. Although Koresma is drawing inspiration from the places he visited, the intention of the EP is for each listener to derive a unique meaning from the music.
Originally from Florida, Lindberg now lives in Asheville, North Carolina where he moved to be with his dad who was sick at the time. When Lindberg is not making music he loves to enjoy the local scenery of the Blue Ridge Mountains hiking, hammocking, or camping. Koresma has played shows in the Southeast with Emancipator and Astronautica and played Kinnection festival as well. A single called “Bridges” from Koresma has charted at #1 on Hype Machine, received over two million plays on Spotify, and helped gain over ten thousand followers on SoundCloud. “Bridges” will be included in the “Next Frontier” album and serves a starting point for the whole experience. Creating music serves as a type of cathartic release and self exploration for Koresma with the hope that the music connects people from all backgrounds together.
