Theres a heap of pressure in being likened to this generations Herbie Hancock, but New Zealand musician/producer Mark de Clive-Lowe seems up to the challenge. Remixing tracks for stars like Lauryn Hill and Jody Watley and performing with members of The Roots and Miles Davis band, Clive-Lowe has gained stardom across the globe with his awe-inspiring blend of broken jazz, deep house, and nu soul. He brings his groove to the Valley for the first time at Club Mardi Gras. 21-and-over.
