Producer Profile: DJ Clart

I first heard of DJ Clart through the Golden Orb Weavers EP with his track So Selfish. His ability to toughen up a liquid track and still keep it melodic jumped out at me straight away. Just to prove it wasn’t a fluke he dropped the monster Avenue on Sole Digital, the super smooth Watchout VIP on Liquid Brilliants and sublime Mysterious Ways with Glen E Stone on Quilin’s 4 Corners EP.

To call Clart liquid doesn’t really do him justice. His diversity is always underpinned by a ‘deepness’ that remains consistent in all his releases. His use of organic bass lines which he twists into growling stabs and the crisp, clean and loud production on his beats really make his tracks hold up in a mix.

It’s looking like a big year for Clart with upcoming releases on Peer pressure, Next Sense, Ingredients, Vampire and Influenza Media. I am convinced 2010 will be year that this talented producer blows up big.

Just top get a taste here is a free track Clart has graciously let me host. It’s a bootleg of Lupe Fiasco’s Paris Tokyo and whilst quite a bit lighter than some of Clart’s official releases it still shows what talent he is.

Enjoy. 🙂

    I’ve got the Brick City EP on Peer Pressure & I agree with every thing you say about “His ability to toughen up a liquid track and still keep it melodic” & there are some wicked style change up’s on there too. Can you tell me what country DJ Clart’s from, he’s not actually from Newark NJ USA is he[despite the infamous Reggie Noble vocal sample ;)]? Wicked Blog By the way. Peace Nick [UK].

    Well I thought he might be Scottish hence ‘clart’ but apparently that is just me reading too any Irvine Welsh books. 😛
