A Los Angeles native, Clovis is one of foremost underground DJs to rise from the city within the past decade. His commitment to the avant-garde edges of house and techno have led him to dance music’s most forward-thinking hotspots: Berlin, Brussels, Bucharest, and more. As a DJ and producer, Clovis’s passions range far beyond the kick-drum, expanding into deep explorations of the tones, forms, and shapes of sound—the timbre of a woodblock, the rustle of a castanet, the snap of a snare. Yet he can deftly move a packed dance floor, delivering peak-time sets in which elements of dub and complex patterns shine through soulful, driving tech-house. A versatile selector, Clovis is as at home expanding minds at Berlin’s Club der Visionaire as he is moving bodies on Los Angeles’s Standard Rooftop.
