PS CLICK GUEST MIX: Clarens (Partyfine)
Diving into the waters of the digital stream for another week, we are bringing those of you playing at home (or on your mobile devices) another absolutely killer 30 min guest mix. Read on if you are keen for some tasty jamz.
This time around for our weekly FBi CLICK show we’re are aiming down our sights at a young French producer that goes simply by the name of CLARENS.
A member of the legendary label PARTYFINE, (home and throne to our mate YUKSEK), CLARENS is a producer of the bedroom persuasion, cranking out solid, pop-laden tunes that cross boundaries between dance, hip-hop, downtempo, atmospheric and back again between keyboard strokes.
We’ve got to admit that we’re a bit frothy on the PARTYFINE dudes and they’re host of talent. In the past month alone we’ve enlisted the help of VILLA (who are also signees to the label) to help us out with a guest mix – which you can also check out right hurrr.
Within CLARENS’ mix you can expect to hear slick basslines, moving beats and more – #emotional vibes all round, guys. If you’re lucky, and possess finely tuned earholes, you might even be able to pick out a few sneaky tunes including vocal treatments from dudes such as BLOOD ORANGE or even goold ol’ JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE (pitched way, way down).
All this talk only scrapes the surface of what is this week’s guest mix for the PURPLE SNEAKERS FBi CLICK show. It truly is a shining example of ‘hearing is believing’ – and just like Mulder – you’ll want to believe.
Okay, so enough with the off-the-cuff X-Files references and more with the tunage: You can listen to this week’s guest mix – brought to you via France by CLARENS – below, via our official soundcloud page, where we archive each and every weekly guest mix for you’re audiophilic pleasure. Enjoy yoself.
