About MdCL by MdCL:

I'm a producer, beat maker and keys player, one half from NZ and the other half from Japan living in West London. Music's been my thing the whole way since starting on the piano when I was 4 - growing up through classical, then jazz and the beats. Now it's all come full circle and the music keeps on getting twisted up more and more - broken beat, spacefunk, 21st century soul, cosmic hip hop, whatever you want to call it :) I've been fortunate to collab in different forms with a lot of great producers and artists - Restless Soul, DJ Spinna, Dego (4Hero), Jody Watley, Lauryn Hill, Bugz in the Attic, Kenny Dope/MAW, Wajeed/PPP, Pino Palladino, Bembe Segue, Omar, Jazzysport, Joe Clausell and plenty more... people who all have great beat and music sensibilities and we can knock heads and come up with something unique together.

The new album JOURNEY 2 THE LIGHT will be out Summer 2007 on Freedom School Records out of Japan... hope you get to check it, hope you dig it. My other main projects at the moment are THE POLITIK with Bembe Segue, FREESOUL SESSIONS - a fully improvised beat head experience and UNIVERSAL SUN with Chris Cox . Check them out (and other friends n fam) in my Top 8.

Free Download - The MdCL album Six Degrees.
