French Dj and producer. You know her from her time releasing killer cuts on My Favorite Robot, Live at Robert Johnson,Throne of Blood, Karat records, Kill The Dj, Bpitch Control, or her Dj reputation paved from her residency at Rex Club. You should also know that her LP releases ‘The Waiting Room’ from 2007 and ‘One And Other’ 2010 were veritable gems on the electronic landscape.
Chloé is an institution, an electronic music artist suspended between genres and aesthetics unable to be categorized.
With a style born from a true DJ culture and a strength of building a set with a personal vision, the French DJ and producer has developed a unique ear and sound distinctly is her own.
It is this sound that has led Chloé to being one of the most sought after artists in the contemporary music scene.
To file her under ‘girl dj’ would be to miss the point, or to make one that isn’t necessary. Chloé’s accomplishments speak for themselves.
Beginning in the 1990s in Paris’ club scene Chloé steadily gained a following that today reaches far beyond France.
By 2002 Chloé began releasing EPs and remixes and in 2007 her debut LP The Waiting Room (Kill the DJ records, label she co-founded) was released to critical praise.
In 2010 Chloé released her second LP One in Other (Kill the DJ) which went on to be nominated for France’s most prestigious music award Les Victoires de la Musique.
Her extensive discography includes EPs released on Karat, BPitch Control, My Favorite Robot and Throne of Blood. Among her releases are also remixes for Miss Kittin, Troy Pierce, Fairmont, Sascha Funke to name a few.
If it were in nightclubs across Europe that Chloé refined her talent as a DJ it was by performing live with an electroacoustic approach that Chloé focused her talent as a musician.
Her live audio-visual shows have seen her play in institutional art spaces and music venues throughout Europe including Paris’ Centre Pompidou where she performed her piece The Surreal and Its Echo live, taken from the project of the same name that was also released as a book with accompanying CD (editions Dis-Voir) in 2011.
Collaborating often within the world of cinema, dance and art Chloé has created exclusive sound pieces like for the Cinemathéque de Paris (cinemix for Hitchock’s silent movie « Blackmail » 1929) and has worked with choreographers including Fabrice Ramalingum.
In 2013 Chloé collaborated with contemporary artist Anri Sala on the critically acclaimed project Ravel Ravel Unravel, which was featured at the French pavilion at the Venice Biennale the same year.
Chloé’s eclectic incarnations within music have traversed many worlds but it’s as a DJ that Chloé has kept herself continuously at the forefront of electronic music, playing in Europe’s most prominent clubs and music venues such as Robert Johnson, Mondo and Fabric as well as regularly headlining on the festival circuit.
Chloé’s current residency is at Rex Club in Paris where she curates her party Lumière Noire with local & international DJs.
She hosts a collection under the same : Lumière Noire on Kill the dj records, with this idea of « putting the light on emerging artists or old friends whose reputation is well established & share or make discover without a restrictive frame techno tracks with psyche scent, vintage waves as well as krautrock tendencies ».
At the same time, she continues to evolve and expand her body of work and collaborations with others.
