Since her years at the Pulp, a mythical underground venue and haven of inclusivity even before this word was part of today’s music vocabulary, CHLOE has helped define the transformative power of a club and the emotional power of a DJ set. Away from the over-commercialisation of electronic music, she has championed a versatile and out-of-the-box electronic music practice that inspires fans and artists alike.
In recent years, she has played at major festivals (Mutek, Burning Man, Sonar, DGTL, Nuits Sonores) as well as holding a residency at Rex Club. Her sets are a unique experience, as CHLOE often performs in all night long formats that allow her to take the audience on unexpected journeys. She manages to create unique connections between various musical aesthetics, physical and mental sensations. An oblique way of approaching the dj set without leaving the audience on the sidelines, which has made her reputation with dancers all over the world. The production of tracks that have become iconic has allowed her to further establish her approach. The Dawn (on the Endless Revisions album, Nemone’s favourite record on BBC6) manages to develop a long melody between minimal techno and new wave, tinged with the heritage of Steve Reich. The more frontal Mars 500 (Permanent Vacation) and its early house accents bathed in psychedelia or Night Rider (DGTL), an emotional minimal wave played with a techno fever, are other unstoppable tracks that the public could taste on record before appreciating their power on the dancefloor.
She has also shone in her remix work for artists as varied as Metronomy, Etienne Daho, Malik Djoudi, Ezechiel Pailhès, Feu Chatterton, Mirwais, to whom she has offered inventive reworks bathed as much in her approach as a producer as in her DJ skills. At the helm of her own label, Lumière Noire Records, capable of performing in clubs as well as festivals, in museums or halls dedicated to contemporary music, CHLOE is a key artist on the current scene, where each track she plays contributes to lifting us a little further away from reality andprefabricated schemes.
