Mark De Clive-Lowe follows a successful crowd-funding campaign with the release of his long-awaited Church LP, a culmination of his musical travels to date and an homage to his live performance series of the same name, which hits like a shock to the heart as he delivers 13 genre-defying tracks packed with the kind of sonic ingenuity and craftsmanship the game has often been missing.
With the arrival of this project, Mark De Clive-Lowe etches his name into the ground paved by his musical forebears and builds a sacred space upon it for all who dare to challenge the limitations of society and sound. Mark De Clive-Lowe teams with Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Nia Andrews, John Robinson, Contra Mestre Xingu, theeKIDICARUS and Low Leaf to present a heat seeking musical hybrid of a compilation that combines all of what he is with an enticing glimpse at his infinite possibility. He offers a note on the project alongside the album:
“CHURCH the album is the culmination of the last three years of my LA and NYC clubnight, CHURCH. it’s equal parts jazz club, live remix experiment and dance party â€“ joining the dots between improvisation, live musicians, electronics and sampling. this is the album i always wanted to make â€“ it’s the culmination of all my globetrotting, collaborations and experiences.”
“(the) avant-garde soulful Pianist/DJ/Producer delivers his lifetime of journeys to different musical ports in a concise package, seamlessly… transporting not just in genre but in emotion and spirit.”
