Chris Clark is one of the UK’s most interesting producers. If you knew nothing else about him the fact he has been long signed to British electronic institution and experimental imprint Warp Records would tell you that. Known more commonly by only his second name of Clark, Chris quickly forged a reputation during the mid noughties as act to watch with the release of two boundary pushing albums Furniture and Body Riddle, (both which took 3 years to make) as his meticulous production style and complex beats began to gain him a cult following. Still defying genre classification and crafting complicated sonic structures for our aural pleasures we were excited to hear that Clark has got the nod from the iconic Warp to helm their latest compilation ‘Feast/Beast’.
Promising 29 tracks the new compilation will house some of electronic music’s greatest talents including Clark reworkings of of Amon Tobin, Kuedo, Battles, Depeche Mode and Massive Attack amongst others and the release of a fresh cut from Clark himself. The artist feels that he was given a greater sense of freedom to express his musical career over the past decade as he explains “In some ways, these remixes represent the range of music I have released over the 10 years in my albums. But they are more unhinged—there is more freedom involved when using other people’s material. And particularly when friends are involved, it can push you into electric new terrain.”
