If you’re passionate about electronic music, and more particularly by minimal rhythms and living in Paris, you definitely have heard about LA CLAP, at least once. With their distinctive but true and recognizable visual identity made by Léa Charée, LA CLAP has become one of the labels in vogue of the French capital.
This label was founded in 2013, by Jean Cedric Alisonn, better known by his artist name Alisonn.
His dedication to djing started when he was 16, and still living in the south of France. He grew up in the middle of time of rave parties, and begun to play some techno beats according to this movement. His first residency at “Le Club House” back in the days allowed him to gain confidence and some improvements in his DJ sets by playing old groovy house and techno music.
It’s during the early 2000’s that he discovered the minimal style and imprint he wanted to share with labels such as Minus and Perlon to quote a few, and DJs like Steve Stoll, Daniel Bell, Richie Hawtin or Ricardo Villalobos. In this direction, Alisonn has begun to create some tasteful music, working in a vinyl shop in Paris and has gained the opportunity of learning about electronic music in general. This allowed him to start playing in all of the biggest clubs in Paris and around. It also marked the creation of LA CLAP.
LA CLAP has for goal to share his passion for music to everyone touched by electronic music and to promote minimal artists from the underground mid. The collective is already well known from the French people but also from foreigners like Romanians as it already has invited big micro-house headliners such as Barac, Petre Inspirescu, Nastia, Archie Hamilton, Arapu, Julietta, Triptil, Cezar Lazar, Praslea, Alex Celler, Denis Kaznacheev, SIT, Suciu, (iO)Mulen just to name a few of them.
With some serious releases from Dubsons, BirdMakingMachine, Alex Celler, Bruno Pronsato, CNTRL, Suciu, LA CLAP has already made their proof.
This time, Alisonn chosed to invite one of Reciproc best assets ALCI, to Nouveau Casino, that will become the next LA CLAP playground this week end. In addition of it, Ben Resist and Jesus will be playing as well. Expect some groove and weapon tracks all night long.
