The Sweatbox – Long Play 23 at REN Lounge (Kyo KL) features UK legend Clive Henry making a return to KL, taking you on a 7 hour long play journey at The Sweatbox this coming Saturday 23 February.
One of the UK’s longest standing flag-wavers for underground house music and an original member of the West London house mafia.
Clive is one of the UK’s longest standing flag-wavers for underground house music, one half of the genre-defining underground house outfit Peace Division and resident at the world’s most musically influential nightclub DC10. 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.
The notorious Circoloco, Ibiza, the Monday afternoon party happening at the equally notorious DC 10 Ibiza has featured Clive's residency for no less than 16 years in a row, when he was still Peace Division and when he was experimenting productions with the likes of Jamie Jones and Seth Troxler. Thirty years as a DJ/Producer, Clive Henry remains an icon of dance music and possibly one of the few bright minds who gave music in Ibiza some solid direction.
