Emma Clair has built her name on one major underpinning belief – “music should be fun”. In a world where dance music is filled with moody shots of DJs dressed in black, Emma is the total antithesis to this and isn’t this what we need more than ever!? Emma has released on some of the most reputable dance music labels across multiple genres including Dirty Volt Music, Electro Swing Thing, Freshly Squeezed Music, Prohibition and most recently Trax Records which saw her debut House release land inside the Beatport Top 30. This was the perfect way to mark the beginning of a new era for Emma Clair, delivering a concoction of feel good sounds fused with classic vocal cuts and an old skool edge. Emma’s combination of natural musicality, raw passion and experience has led to her being requested to play far and wide across the globe for some of the world’s most renowned brands and venues: Antwerp Mansion, Beatherder Festival, Beaverworks, Boomtown Festival, Eiger Studios, Frnaz Club (Berlin), Gatecrasher, Invisible Wind Factory, Joshua Brooks, L’usine (Geneva, Switzerland), Ministry of Sound, Operaen (Copenhagen, Denmark), Rough Trade, Sankeys, Soho (Ibiza, Spain) South, Stage & Radio, The Roxy (Prague, Czech Rep), Victoria Warehouse, VIVA (Ibiza, Spain) and West Indian Centre. A truly exciting new chapter in the Emma Clair story awaits..
Producer based in the UK and The Philippines.
