Deep inside Montreal’s underground Claire concocts her unique sound. Deep trippy techno, disturbed by short melodic passages, oriental chords or mysterious whispers, a flow meant to wake up some goosebumps and feelings you weren’t aware of until now.
Her musical style encompasses shades of techno, micro-house, breakbeat, and minimal: groovy, trippy, playful and sensual with deep chords, mysterious whispers, and low-slung funk. Sometimes harder-hitting with nods to Detroit Techno, sweaty warehouses and arpeggiated synth synergies from Outer Space. Some call it Soul Techno.
The daughter of a violinist and a mad scientist, Claire grew up playing violin and bass guitar before diving headfirst into electronic music. A DJ and Live Act, Claire plays regularly around the world and has performed in Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Germany, France and Japan. In Montreal she holds a 9 year ongoing residency at Laika. Her ability to conjure magic and elevate a crowd has earned her repeat performances at world-class events and venues like MUTEK, Piknic Electronik, Future Forest, and Club der Visionaere. She has also graced the stage from Tokyo to Santiago at amazing spots like Igloofest, The Techno Parade (France), Astropolis, Garorock, Sunwave, Air (Tokyo) and Piknic Electronik Santiago. When she isn’t travelling, catch her weekly in Montreal at Laïka, where she’s held an ongoing residency for the past 9 years. She also launched Blackbox Montreal in 2011, a series of nomadic underground dance parties fusing found spaces with immersive visuals and forward-thinking minimalist music.
With a growing stack of Vinyl releases including 2017 solo efforts the Univers Parallèle EP on Moldovian imprint Conceptual Records Monoclap 006 on Spanish label Monoclap with remixes by LoSoul and DoubtingThomas, Claire is proving herself to be a true force of nature.
