Okayplayer Premiere: Stream Mark De Clive-Lowe's 'CHURCH' LP
Mark De Clive-Lowe follows a successful crowd-funding campaign with the premiere stream of his long-awaited CHURCH LP, which arrived May 27th via Ropeadope. The project is the 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 stream:
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 – joining the dots between improvisation, live musicians, electronics and sampling. this is the album i always wanted to make – it’s the culmination of all my globetrotting, collaborations and experiences.
