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, Herbie
Hancock, 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 was the co-resident
DJ at New York's musically innovative club event "Body
& SOUL" with Danny Krivit and Francois
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. It's 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 dance-floor revelers! His track selection
is impeccable and his EQing is unrivalled.
Also rockin' the spot
at the beautiful Sunnyside Pavillion will be Garage 416's Blueprint
and Moreno, milk's Felix & Gani and RNB's Richard
Brooks and Ali Black.
