Clive who returns to Le Noir KL on the 22nd February for 1Hundred is one of the UK’s longest standing flag-wavers for underground house music having been one half of the genre-defining outfit Peace Division and resident at the world’s most musically influential nightclub DC10 in Ibiza.
Clive started his long musical journey way back in the mid-eighties when he was working after school to earn money to feed his vinyl addiction. He caught the DJing bug going to local hip-hop jams in West London and listening to early electro/hip hop on pirate radio. It was all about to change, however, when in 1988 he was introduced to London’s early acid house scene by Rocky and Diesel from Xpress 2. They took him to the seminal Spectrum and Shoom clubs which proved highly instrumental in shaping Clive’s musical future.
Not long after, Clive and Rocky started running their own successful nights in the emerging West London scene called Bone and Gosh with guests like David Holmes, Andrew Weatherall and Ashley Beedle. It wasn’t long before Clive started playing at his own events, which in turn lead to bookings at other clubs, first in London and then across the UK. In 1998 he founded the iconic label Low Pressings with fellow suburbanite Justin Drake who went on to become his production partner in Peace Division.
During this period Clive relocated to Ibiza every summer and in 2000 on after a night out at Space with fellow DJ Lottie they stumbled across the now legendary Circo Loco afterparty held at DC10 on Monday mornings. Back then DC10 was more like a social club for DJs, promoters and their friends and it wasn’t long before Clive was a regular feature at the club. He hasn’t looked back. During the last decade and a half Clive has established himself as the British backbone of the club laying down his trademark brand of deep no-nonsense house music week in week out having being invited to join DC10 stellar roster of residents back in 2004.
Clive’s residency at DC10 brought him into contact with Crosstown Rebels frontman Damian Lazarus who quickly brought Clive into the Crosstown family where his highly regarded mix compilation for the label earned him even more followers.
Since the end of his Peace Division collaboration, after around 2008, it’s been mostly DJing for Henry, as he established himself as the British backbone of the club scene by laying down his trademark brand of no-nonsense, deep house music in DC10 and beyond, including more recently Sydney’s rising Sunday S.A.S.H parties.
The future is looking bright for Clive as his back to back sets with Alex Arnout are starting to take shape with regular slots at Studio 338 in London and beyond and with a 10 date tour of Australia and Asia that began last month to kick off what promises to be an exciting new year.
Also featuring for the night at Le Noir KL will be Rory Gallagher (Soul De Anima / Anjunadeep).
