Mark de Clive-Lowe

April 5, 2012

Greetings, Recording Fans,

I am giving the finishing touches to an in-depth interview with producer Mark de Clive-Lowe, which was conducted just a few blocks from the L.A. offices of Recording Magazine. Mark is one of the most in-demand producers today, and here are a few quotes to whet your appetite...

On using a percussion break as the basis for a song:

“Anything can be anything, if that’s where your imagination can take it.”

On the preconceived notions about sampled-based music:

“...for someone like J Dilla to be revered as much as an Ellington would be laughable 15 years ago.”

On working with singer Sandra Nkaké:

“She’s great. It’s funny, because on her own project she gets into this American Neo-Soul tip, but when we get together she goes completely tribal! It’s her element.”


Don't miss this interview in the June 2012 Recording Magazine issue, coming very soon!


For now, check Mark's site to listen to his music and read about his extraordinary story:


'till next time, go have fun Recording...
