Claussell DJ, producer, and founder of New York record label
Spiritual Life Music returns to Toronto straight from New
York's musically innovative club event "Body & SOUL"
Joe's approach to club
music has impacted producers and clubs throughout world. Currently
popular in progressive minded club music production is the fusion
of world music with dance beats. Notably responsible for this
new approach is Joe Claussell. With production and remixes for
the likes of Cesaria Evora, Femi Kuti, Monday Michiru, Jephte
Guillaume , Nitin Sawney , and Cassandra Wilson, his sound has
imbued dance music with a more organic, ethnic feel, taking African
and Latin influences on board and meshing them with elements of
the Garage tradition and the true feeling of classic and contemporary
Joe dares to produce and create music few have the courage to
do. Music created for, by and about the soul. Explore this experimentation,
in which the historical, physical, and spiritual elements guide
us to a new level of awareness. It's difficult to label Joe's
music as house, dance music or anything else. Its just good
music. Listen...you may be surprised at how familiar this
sound is, the sound of life.
Joe will be delivering
pure soulful bliss to the Garage 416 dance floor revelers, his
track selection is impeccable and his EQing is unrivalled. The
last Spiritual Life party here in Toronto with Joe and Pevin Everett
was one of last year's club highlights!
Garage 416 residents
Jason Klaps, Alan Lo and Mike K of blueprint will also
be rockin' the spot with their lively lovely blend of funky house
goal is to expose the role that music really plays in our lives."
