Deep inside Montreal’s underground Claire concocts her unique sound. Her style encompasses shades of techno, micro-house, Romanian and silky-smooth minimal grooves: deep, trippy, and sensual with deep chords, mysterious whispers, and low-slung funk. Some call it Soul Techno; sounds meant to wake up some goosebumps and feelings you weren’t aware of until now. The daughter of a violinist and a mad scientist, Claire played violin and bass guitar before discovering electronic music. A DJ for 15 years, she has established herself as a key player in the Canadian electronic music community. This has brought her to events and venues like MUTEK, Igloofest, Air (Tokyo), Garorock, the Techno Parade (Paris), Bass Coast Festival, Piknic Electronik, and Club der Visionaere. Catch her weekly at Laïka, where she’s held an on-going residency for the past seven years. She also launched Blackbox Montreal in 2011, a series of nomadic underground dance parties that has played host to the likes of Akufen, Mike Shannon, DoubtingThomas, Alicia Hush, and Frivolous. With a stack of recent productions under industry notables like Archipel, Loob label, Park Recordings, and her first vinyl release with Spanish imprint Monoclap—her focus squarely set on future productions and live performances, Claire is proving herself to be a true force of nature.
