Decoded Magazine: ‘Future Leader 2018’
DJ MAG: ' One to watch, a rising star in Ibiza.'
Persistence and exploration... two constants that have proven essential in helping Alice reach her current destination point. With a penchant true to the deeper, dubbier strains of the groove-driven micro-house realm, such a realisation has now sparked her determination to make her own mark on a genre made famous by her Romanian influences.
A regular on dance floors throughout her university years, it took very little persuasion for Alice to transform her passion into her profession. She soon taught herself the art of DJing following an inspired trip to Ibiza at just 17-years-old. After months of dedication, self-discipline and self-taught production, Alice soon started turning heads on her local scene playing out gigs local to her home in Kent. It wasn’t long then until she caught the attention of the UK capital and was asked to perform at the notorious fabric in London, Pacha and Basing House.
A view through the Alice Clark lens, during the summer of 2011, sees her inspiration and determination drive the Kent native to embark upon her first long-term stay on the White Isle at the age of 18. Labelled by DJ Mag as “One to watch, a rising star in Ibiza”, her journey in the Balearics has thus far seen her captivate the likes of Sankeys and Pacha Ibiza. Whilst she is in debt to Ibiza for lighting the flame for her to pursue a career in music, she also owes a lot of credit to her time spent in the States. Having visited the USA since the tender age of 12-years-old, Alice has now began to stamp her own authority on the electronic music scene there in recent years with tours through thriving cities such as Orlando, San Diego, New York and of course, Miami.
Having spent some serious quality time in the last year honing her craft, Alice has finally found a sound that truly resonates with her. Shining a light towards the deeper, dubbier shades of groove-driven micro-house, the Ibiza resident has found comfort and confidence through dance-floor focused breakdowns and sweeping bouncy modular chord sequences. “I’ve spent a lot of time in the studio, over the last year especially, and applying what I was inspired by over the summer to what I’m currently making. Hearing artists like Mihai Popoviciu, Archie Hamilton and Premiesku play in particular really resonated with me.”
Autumn 2017 saw Alice release her Submission EP on New Violence Records which was swiftly followed by her ‘Traverse’ EP, snapped up by Cyclic Records, an output reflecting of her Romanian counterparts. Focusing on 2018, which will no doubt be her busiest and most exciting year to date. Alice kicked off with her Motivez single on OBlack and made serious waves with her more stripped-back ‘Egotist’ EP on Decay Records released in April featuring both James Dexter and Mihai Popoviciu on remix duties. Such a collaborative effort saw the release so far peak at numbers 16, 24, 46 respectively in the Beatport & Traxsource Top 100 Minimal Charts. Arguably one of her strongest outputs to date, the ‘Egotist’ EP managed to accumulate support from an impressive list of names including Traumer, Julien Sandre, Rhadow, Chad Andrew to name but a few.
In the coming months, she will unveil her second EP release with Cyclic Records entitled ‘Vibrational’ featuring a remix from Toman which will be followed by an upcoming collaboration with Fe.ht on Get Physical Music’s Ibiza 2018 compilation mixed by Ben Hoo. With a promising summer of dates lined up, 2018 also sees Alice make her debut at Barcelona’s Off-Sonar in June as well as a return to familiar territory at Sankeys for a guest slot with Unusual Suspects.
