About CLART:

Hailing from the sunny shores of Singapore, Clart started Dj’ing, in Guildford when he was in university, with FD, Subterra and Tasha, then known as the Presha collective. Coming back to Singapore, he joined the InnerNation and SETUP crew and ran 2 monthly Drum n’ bass nights, at Home club and the now defunct Coco Latte and Bar Baa Black Chic. Overseas guests for these nights, include the likes of DJ SS, Influx Datum, Lenzman, Evol Intent etc. Apart from Dj’ing in London and Singapore, Clart has spun in New York, Poland, China and Malaysia. Currently, he helps host Nookie’s Atmosphere Radio Show on Lifefm.co.uk.

Apart from Dj’ing, Clart also dabbles in production and has a few releases. Initially signed to Nookie’s the legendary Strictly-Digital Label, Clart has gone on to sign his techy/liquid/dubby hybrid sound to other reputable labels of that time. Including Digital Blus (Blu Saphir off shoot), Sole Recordings, Golden Orb Recordings and Liquid Brilliants. Shortly after that, He gained some exposure for his remix of Lupe Fiasco’s Paris Tokyo which was played on Fabio’s BBC Radio 1 show, and also a dubbed out version of “What you won’t do” which was rinsed on 1xtra and Mista Jam’s BBC radio 1 show. A collab with the mightly lenzman was also floating around on dub notably supported by LTJ Bukem.

Hot on this minor success, Clart signed and put out a 4 track EP on Peer Pressure Recordings in the US. He secured a release with Primo on Fokuz and his first vinyl release with Paul SG on Jazzsticks. Another 12″ followed later with MSDOS on Have a-Break recordings. Look out for more forthcoming 12″ and mp3s on Nexgen, Influenza Media, IM.LTD, QILIN, Vampire and Phuzion.
