GANZ, Conrad Clifton, Opvs
The name Conrad Clifton is swiftly becoming synonymous with emotive, soul- enriched electronic music. The Brooklyn based producer has assisted Grammy Award winning producers with projects for world famous artists, and has seen individual success with his own distinctive hybrid of House, Electronica, Hip-Hop and R&B. Winner of the Independent Music Award for Best Dance/Electronica EP, Conrad is know as "one of the most exciting electronic artists to watch.”
Clifton‘s latest album is a soundscape with a sheer level of depth to it, which blends and delves into many different musical aspects to produce a cinematic wonderment. In the age of genre-blending, Beautiful Tragedy stands out as its own unique creation. It does a very good job of going beyond what’s expected, especially in regards to how certain sounds are brought together.
With his recent SXSW Festival appearance, sharing the stage with artists like San Holo, Sweater Beats, Chrome Sparks, Sam Gellaitry, Pomo and Alexander Lewis - plus his captivating live performance at Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival, Conrad looks to bring his music to a much larger audience. The listener might pick up on elements of Hudson Mohawke, Boards Of Canada, Flume, Flying Lotus, Toro y Moi, Machinedrum or Metro Boomin - but equally they’ll be struck by the music’s individual character and irrefutable emotional impact.
