An afficionado of all things sonic, Claire's expression dives deep thru valleys of bass and tripped out fantasies involving drums, hypnotic melodies, and sounds from outer space. Her sound and presence radiate warmth and intelligence, her style drawing from the artists and labels she loves: Perlon, Nervmusic, Akiko Kiyama, Matt John, Frivolous, Robag Wruhme and Ricardo Villalobos just to name a few. Having played alongside renowned artists like Frivolous, Noze, Akufen, Pheek, Tipper, and Mark Farina, Claire weaves sounds together intuitively, creating a feeling in her DJ sets that is at all at once playful and carefree, nostalgic and everlasting.
Currently living in Montreal, Claire is a regular feature across Canada and has played Internationally in Brazil, France, USA, Germany, Argentina and Japan. Career highlights include AIR Tokyo, Levitar Buenos Aires, the Techno Parade in Paris, Evolve festival, and Montreal's Piknic Electronik. Well-loved by Laïka, she holds a 5 year ongoing Friday night residency and in 2011 launched a series of underground 'Blackbox' events-- a nomadic dance party that changes location every time.
As a producer, in 2012 Claire released The Dark Kiss EP on Lost Land Records to critical acclaim by Richie Hawtin, Magda, and Troy Pierce. Then, a debut Album 'Under a Midnight Moon' on Pheek's record label 'Archipel', supported by Akufen, Tom Ellis, Nu Zau, Seph, and many more. Now in 2013 she has been added to the roster of Stefny Winter's label Goodnight Moon Recordings. More compositions, a leap into the world of analogue production tools, and the sculpting of her live set.
