Half Japanese/half New Zealander, musician/producer Mark de Clive-Lowe has been on the music journey since undertaking the piano at the age of four. Classical piano lessons, jazz for playing pleasure and hip hop and soul on the stereo gave Mark the diverse foundation that his eclectic style has developed from.


Over the past ten years, Mark's musical journey has taken him to the US, UK, Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Cuba. Performing and recording in different settings while collaborating with DJ/producers, turntablists, acoustic jazz artists, Japanese Kagura, and the world of latin rhythms, Mark has become a major figure in the nu-jazz movement, blending jazz, ethnic music and urban grooves into a fresh 21st Century flavour.

Based in West London, Mark is a key collaborator, artist and producer in the scene spear-headed by Bugz in the Attic, 4Hero, Restless Soul and IG Culture [NSM]. His debut LP 'Six Degrees' [Universal Jazz/emarcy] was released worldwide in 2000 - featuring an amalgamation of jazz sensibilities and urban influences, the album found a niche with DJs, critics and audiences worldwide. Two world tours later, Mark has taken the Six Degrees live show global, including featured slots at the Detroit Electronic Music Festival, Amsterdam Drum Rhythm Festival and London Jazz Festival, as well as throughout Europe, Asia and Australasia.

Live Events 2001 saw Mark contributing a stand out remix production of Shirley Horn on the Verve//Remixed LP alongside tracks from MAW, Joe Clausell and Thievery Corporation. In 2002, his carnival soul-beats anthem 'Relax...Unwind' featuring Abdul Shyllon became one of the year's underground hits worldwide for the likes of Gilles Peterson, Jazzy Jeff, MAW and Jazzanova. Recent releases also include collaborations with Kenny Dope [Masters at Work], DJ Spinna [BBE/rapster], Rima [JCR], IG Culture, Bugz in the Attic and Restless Soul. Over the past 4 years, Mark has stamped his sound on over 100 releases, working with some of the most progressive producers and artists around the world.

Mark's forthcoming new album will be released worldwide in late 2004/early 2005; TIDE'S ARISING features an array of guest artists including Bembé Segué, Abdul Shyllon, Pino Palladino [D'Angelo's Soultronics/The Who], Capitol A [The Roots/Jazzanova] and more. Upfront exclusives are already on high rotation for Gilles Peterson, 4Hero, Bugz in the Attic and more.
