CLOOFORILLUR Records has an old-school vibe infused with modern flavors, with influences of European, Latin and global tastes and culture all boiled into a unique yet familiar New York sound. It will represent my passion for quality dance records that diggers hunt numerous hours for. The label will accompany CLOOFORILLUR.FUNction, a monthly event showcasing talent from across the pond as well as local artists aligned with the CLOOFORILLUR vision

Dave Turk

The label boss opens the show with the rolling ‘Actin’ Like a Baby’ before DNS’ ‘Say Less’ brings a trippy, loose and hypnotic trip to the mix. Lucas Aoki draws for deeper grooves and hazy pads with ‘Chicago’ while David Berrie strips things back for the sleek ‘Dreamland’. Turk unites with MINK and Chuwee for the bumping beats of the bubbly ‘Worcestershire’, while ‘Touche’ from Dopo is tough yet brings playful moments. Belgian talent RIZZ draws for a mix of driving bass and more delicate synths on ‘JFK Dub’, with Gian-Paul’s no-nonsense ‘I See You’ featuring the vocals of Dayna C. To close, Turk’s opening track is given the remix treatment by Zamoras, flipping the original by upping the tempo to serve up a final slice of peak-time goodness.

CLOOFORILLUR’s ‘pre’ VA drops on 28th June 2024 and we premiere ‘Dave Turk x Mink x Chuwee – Worcestershire’ on Data Transmission, check it out here and grab it on Beatport.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
