Giant Step & Revive Music Present
CHURCH with Mark de Clive-Lowe
Joined by Lady Alma, DJ Carlos Mena & Special Guests


New York! Thanks for coming to the last Church edition in July. It was a fanstastic night featuring the gorgeous voice of N'Dea Davenport and a great set of Twilight Tone. Church continues with world-renowned DJ, producer, remixer, composer, musician, and Tru Thoughts recording artist Mark de Clive-Lowe (MdCL), alongside resident vocalist Nia andrews (Janelle Monae/Common), Nate Smith (José James/Dave Holland)on drums and Jonathan Maron (Groove Collective/Meshell Ndegeocello) on bass. This edition of CHURCH features a special appearance by Lady Alma on vocals. Hailing from Philadelphia, Alma Horton is a legend on the house and progressive soul scenes, and a frequent collaborator with MdCL (“Running For Nothing”, “Pressure”), as well as 4hero (“Hold It Down”), King Britt (Sylk 130) and Dego (Silhouette Brown). This month, be also prepared for sparks to fly as MdCL goes head-to-head with the highly respected DJ Carlos Mena (Ocha Records/Casamena/Yoruba Dance Sessions).

WHAT: Mark de Clive-Lowe continues to build on the success of his new CHURCH monthly series in New York at DROM. Previous installments have featured talented artists such as Rich Medina, Jose James and DJ Spinna performing to capacity crowds.

CHURCH is a whirlwind mix of live jazz, sampling and a DJ set. Fast becoming the discerning music-lovers’ and musicians’ event of choice, don’t be surprised if you spot the likes of Master at Work Louie Vega or soul legend Leon Ware in the audience; Chris “Daddy” Dave, MC John Robinson or Miguel Atwood-Ferguson on the stage and the likes of Ge-Ology on the decks. The first live set showcases the jazz side of MdCL, blending standards, groove explorations and classic trio interplay with resampling, electronics and live remixing. As the first set draws to a close, the guest DJ takes over the soundtrack while the tables and chairs are cleared away for MdCL to flip the script with the second set - a unique blend of live electronica and live remixing - the jazz club colliding head to head with the dance floor.  This month, be prepared for sparks to fly as MdCL goes head-to-head with the highly respected DJ, The Twilite Tone.
