The daughter of a mad scientist and a violinist, Claire played violin and bass guitar as a child before abandoning traditional instruments for the world of electronic music. A DJ since 2001, Claire is known for her unique underground sounds and creative style of mixing that reflect her quirky sensual nature. Her style encompasses futuristic minimalist interpretations of house and techno with dark funky basslines, space sounds, and magical-sounding melodies, woven together into a tale of micro-funk, dreams, and seductively strange sounds.
Based in Montreal, she is a Friday resident at Laïka since 2008, plays regularly across Canada and has also played in the United States, Germany, and Japan. She has performed at notable places like Air (Tokyo, Japan), Piknic Electronik, The Société des Arts Technologiques (SAT), Salon Daome, System Soundbar (Toronto), Subtonic NYC, the Soundwave Music Festival, Evolve Festival, Open Studios and Lotus Sound Lounge (Vancouver) alongside artists like Frivolous, Pheek, Mark Farina, Tipper, and Billy Dalessandro. Since 2011 she has been throwing her underground parties in Montreal to create a space for the music and artists she loves to play in proper context: with quality sound, good vibes, and conceptual decor.
2012 sees Claire dive into production, releasing the Dark Kiss EP on Italy's Lost Land Records in May, to critical acclaim by renowned DJs like Richie Hawtin, Magda, Troy Pierce, and Someone Else. Soon to follow is an album on Archipel, entitled Under a Midnight Moon, with nine tracks that are a fusion of techno, minimal, micro house, and future jazz, scheduled for release in November 2012.
With several productions currently underway, Claire's love for expressing her emotions through sound makes it evident that she is an artist whose passion and personality will continue to seduce listeners and dancefloors in the years to come.
