Words cannot express the energy Claek‘s music gives you. All you have to do is listen to some seconds of it and you feel energy waves penetrate you. Have I awaken your interest? Then read more about the talented Parisian musician and dj, who is now a part of the Leonizer Crew, listen to his releases and watch the video for “Refuse/Resist“.
My name is CLAEK. I was born in PARIS and grew up in PARIS. When I was a child my idol was George Michael, because he wrote very good pop music. When I was 16, I started to play bass and double bass. It was then when I realised that music was my life and decided to quit school. Since then I write, play, produce, kick music everyday. One of my best gigs I played was in Singapore. It was so much fun because it was very crowded and just before Chemical Brothers. One of the best gigs I have been to was Mondkopf. I loved the slow beats moving big crowd.
Now I live in Paris with kids, birds and a cat. In my house you can find musical gear, tattoo books and diapers and my refrigerator is usually full with sparkling water. I enjoy reading and shooting videos a lot. I can spend hours editing of short color sample and make music videos with it. One of my favorite places to visit is Bangkok, because it’s beautiful, warm and food is crazy. On weekdays I write music in the studio and on weekends I usually travel to play these tracks. My favorite song at the moment is Cyril Hahn – Perfect Form (Henri Krinkle remix). A film I watched lately and really liked was The Conjuring. The last series I watched and loved was Dexter. I am very inspired by movies, people and places. I love getting tattooed and hate waiting for that. I am addicted to my phone, I just cannot stop watching X art. I get totally fucked up, when I mix whiskey and vodka. The next day I need to sleep 12hours and drink sparkling water.
Local Suicide reminds me of the toy box of my kids, loaded of hundred of things.
Tomorrow I fly to LA to shoot a music video. Next month I’ll get tattooed. Next year I’ll be a better man. In 10 years I hope the loft I’ll buy in NYC will be finished.
If I wasn’t a musician, I would be a dog trainer. If my life was a Hollywood movie, Paul Hackett would have the main role, because he’s rocking the shit in After Hours by Scorcese. If I could have sex with anyone, it would be Sasha Grey. If I was a car, I would be a Chevrolet Camaro 61. If I was an animal, I would be a bird or a shark. If I was a drug I would be a cocaine that lets you sleep. If I was an invention, I would be cocaine that lets you sleep. If I was an object, I would be a dildo. If I could date myself, I would bring me in a high located floor in NYC and fuck me attaching the skyline. If I could play with anyone it would be Etienne De Crecy. I would like to collaborate with Azealia Banks. If I had only one wish, it would be to live all that again. I would never give up, because I’m a motherfucking stubborn.
My word of advice to the reader would be to believe in your shit.
