Mix 009: Clebs

Jason Nazary (Helado Negro / Bear in Heaven) and Swiss-born vocalist Emilie Weibel are Clebs, a genre-blending, boundary-pushing duo residing in Brooklyn. Having just released their debut EP I’m Here, Clebs mashed up some strong rhythms, odd vocals, and modular noise for their guest mix, featuring a few songs off the new EP, plus artists like Puce Mary, The Knife, and Byron Westbrook.

Your favorite local record shop and a recent purchase there:

EW: Printed Matter or Commend is pretty nice. I just got “One and One Less” by David Grubbs and Eli Keszler on Ugly Duckling Presse and “All Kind Music” by Georgia on Palto Flats.

JN: Academy Records in Greenpoint, last purchase was Misiunea Spatiala Delta – soundtrack to a sci-fi flick by Romanian synth folk pioneers Rodio GA.

Last concert attended:

EW: A few shows I’ve loved recently are L’Rain, Felicia Atkinson and Afrikan Sciences, and Anteloper.

JN: Space way travel with the astral legend Marshall Allen and the Sun Ra Arkestra.

Your go-to instruments / hardware:

EW: The electro-harmonic 45000 and the SP404 sampler. I love all of its effects, especially the sub bass, chromatic and pitch fx that I use with my contact / throat microphone.

JN: My latest gear obsession has been basil instruments’ ‘soft pop’ a mini modular noise machine that is endlessly inspiring and insanely flexible for how tiny it is.

Last moment of inspiration:

JN: Catching our buddy Henry Fraser’s band The Full Salon recently, masters of that ‘cosmic noise funk for the beach’ vibe.

EW: Yes that was a great show! Deep moments of inspiration are often after my sound composition classes with David Grubbs or Marina Rosenfeld.

2018 plans and goals:

We are working on a full length album that we’re recording this summer!
