Clever discovered the sounds of drum & bass while taking a semester abroad in London. He moved to New York City two years later to work at Breakbeat Science, turning his dream of pursuing drum & bass full time into reality. Residencies at numerous events, including: Aerophobia, Push, Deluxe and Fortified, established his sound and presence in NYC. Clever’s sets have stirred dancefloors in cities globally, including: London, Berlin, Toronto, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, Chicago, Seattle, Boston, Portland, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Bend, Sacramento and Reykjavik, Iceland.
Clever currently focuses on his label, Offshore Recordings. Artists Deep Blue, Paradox, Seba, ASC, Graphic, Sileni, Martsman and Tundra, collaborations with Ohm Resistance, Klute’s Commercial Suicide label, Scuba’s Hotflush label and worldwide distribution through ST Holdings, forge a unique path. Knowledge Magazine, BBC Radio 1xtra, Drum & Bass Arena, BPM, XLR8R and Simon Reynolds have all recognized and praised the label’s progress. 2011 brings bigger and better things for Offshore and Clever.
