Sometimes it can be way too easy to get locked into our own little North American bubble of music. Any devout music fan knows, though, that looking globally ensures the discovery of an astoundingly vast spectrum of musical perspectives. One of France’s finest, CloZee, is doing more than just bringing further proof to the fact that her artistically notorious country is still pulsing with plenty of creativity. She is also a key player in setting the stage for conscious female producers and electronic performers.
CloZee is no newcomer to the world of forward-thinking bass music, but she is- somewhat unfortunately- one of the first of her gender to really garner momentum through online plays and substantial touring efforts. Of course, there are plenty to be recognized before her, but in our modern world where we claim gender equality, it is about time we started truly and fully recognizing our female artists, no differently than we would a male.
This is of course not to say CloZee’s gender should define feelings toward her music. Still, with releases on OTODAYO Records, Gravitas Recordings, and numerous other notable labels, her music is definitively nothing to shrug off. With an immense amount of North American performances already under her belt over the past couple years, it would be no surprise if you have been graced by this brilliant up-and-comer; but, that is no excuse to not see what awesome new material she will have in store for Infrasound Festival 2016. And if you have yet to witness CloZee in action, this is one opportunity you should take firm hold of.
