January 20 – Shiba San and Will Clarke
The series will conclude with from Bristol-born Will Clarke. After gaining popularity in 2014 when his Big Booty EP was released on Worthy’s Anabatic label, Clarke joined the Dirtybird label. Hailing from England, Clarke uses influences and experiences from his home city as an inspiration in his music, translated into a constantly-evolving blend of house and bass.
Joining Clarke is 2015 International Dance Music Award-winner for “Best Underground Dance Track,” Shiba San. The Paris native became a seemingly overnight sensation in 2014 when his single “Okay” captured international attention and subsequent interest in his hip-hop infused style of house music.
