Renegade Riddims: Climpo
Climpo became a DJ in 2018 after leaving the Army. He quickly began to gain recognition for his performances at venues including Ibiza Rocks Bar, Pure Ibiza, Club Aquarium London and Below Leicester.
Climpo has performed alongside some absolute legends including Brandon Block, Dave Pearce, Slipmatt, X-Press 2, Cassimm and Francesco Poggi.
2020 has been a stand out year for Climpo with the release of his electro-neuro style debut album ‘The Darker Skies’ on Captum Records (UK). Next was the international release of his ‘Found You Nowhere’ EP in USA and Canada on Dream Killer Recordings. He’s also recently launched a new record label called Full Send.
Full Send DNB (based in Bedford, UK) is run by Climpo along with multi-genre production and sound guru Alec Soren. Climpo and Alec met by chance in 2019 when playing a B2B set at Pure Ibiza and have remained friends ever since, working closely together on a number of projects. They also work with Soundflow Music Academy based in Milton Keynes to share their knowledge and passion for music.
Full Send DNB go all out to bring you the finest underground Drum & Bass from across the world. Neuro, Jump Up, Minimal, Liquid…you name it they play it! Their aim is to help underground producers take their first step towards the mainstream. Working across all sub-genres, they focus their efforts around how artists can increase their revenue from music, while developing their brand on streaming platforms, through to mastering skills and networking.
Climpo has a radio show every Monday from 10pm for his Darker Skies D&B show on In2Beats 106.5FM in Bedford where he showcases the latest underground music from across the world.
We’ve been friends with Climpo for some time and he works incredibly hard with his DJ 2 Combat Stress initiative. This is a team of DJs performing across the country raising money for mental health charities Combat Stress and PTSD Resolution. Find out more about DJ 2 Combat Stress here
