ELECTRONIC: Down Tempo, URBAN/R&B: Soul
Hailing from the city of soul, Philadelphia, Clayton and Fulcrum are part of a new breed of electronic musicians. Not limiting themselves to any particular genre or tempo, they run the gamut of styles, rhythms, and vibes in search of musical fulfillment. Their dj sets also reflect this diversity, and are a vibrant display of the potential in their studio vision.
If you were to lump the body of their work into a category, it would be Breakbeat Funk. Breakbeat Funk possesses the warm feeling that''s in older Funk, Soul, Jazz, Latin, Jamaican, Brazilian, and African music through creatively used sampling, musical influence, and production techniques. Both musical and bass heavy, Breakbeat Funk is a fun and uplifting experience on the dancefloor, and a fulfilling listen off it.
By collaborating with fellow forward-minded Philadelphians, Moqita, they have incorporated vocals, flute, rhodes, wurlitzer, saxaphone, clavinet, wah guitar, and percussion into their rhythm collages. Using replications of the studio equipment used during the 60’s and 70’s, and the techniques of Dub mixing, they embody their songs with the warmth and space that modern digital recording can lack.
Clayton and Fulcrum have established a reputation for creative live and DJ sets in Philadelphia, New York City, and Washington D.C. They have opened for such acts as De La Soul, Massive Attack, and DJ Krush. Their debut album, The Soul Purpose, and various remixes, has helped spread their sound to the world. Their sophomore effort, Songs From The Soul City, is set to push their vision further.
