Indie electronic composer CloZee unveils her Evasion album
Out now on Gravitas Recordings & Midnight Escape Records
In the midst of a 40+ date North American tour, French indie-electronic composer and producer CloZee has just released her debut artist album Evasion. The ten track album emanates her signature world bass sound and takes listeners on an international sonic journey, as each track pulls inspiration from different parts of the world, CloZee’s life experiences and local sounds from her travels.
“’Evasion’ in French, means ‘Escaping the reality.’
“I’m beyond happy for everyone to finally be able to listen to this album, and to travel to their own secret places. EVASION is the result of my years of research and adventures while touring, traveling, meeting new people, and discovering new landscapes. I finally felt ready to share a complete musical story that tells about myself and my past experiences. It was awesome to see the crowd’s reaction when I played the new songs this summer and now it’s time to reveal the project as a whole, and I couldn’t be more excited.” – CloZee
Having only shared the title track with fans prior to the album’s release, each track on Evasion
lends itself to a different cultural sound. CloZee’s intentions are to transport listeners to various destinations through her music; to teach them about various cultures through her eyes and ears. CloZee’s productions acknowledge that music is a language that we all understand as she designs rising beats and vibrating melodies with a universal dialect.
Evasion’s soundscapes range from instrumental tracks like “Chinese Trip,” to upbeat tribal-infused tracks like “Our Voices,” to “Desert,” a song with an Arabian-esque melody and heavy bassline. Though it’s packed with incredibly diverse sounds and styles, Evasion is a unified work which blends all cultural influences, genres and instruments into an international work of art.
CloZee’s career is on a steady rise after the huge success of her hit singles “Koto,” “Red Forest,” and “Secret Place,” and massive performances at music festivals internationally. Earlier this summer, she was seen performing on the main stage of Electric Forest two weekends in a row, as well as numerous other sets throughout the duration of the festival. CloZee’s live sets truly showcase her DJing and curation capabilities as well as showing off her unique taste and world bass style. One of her sets from Electric Forest can be heard here.
