Homodrop are thrilled to be welcoming Parisian DJ, producer and general super-babe Chloé (Bpitch Control, Kill the DJ) for the next instalment of their loved-up homodisco. Between releasing killer LPs, playing at her Rex Club residency in Paris, and DJ spots all over the world, we caught up to chat precious records, plans for 2016 and what to expect at Homodrop!
Hi Chloe, we can't wait to have you back at Superstore! First of all, who is currently your favourite English producer?
At the moment I’m into Jamie XX. I really respect him as a producer - he has the talent to make a good mixture of multiple genders. I really like the production on The XX too.
What is the most precious record in your vinyl collection? of them all ?
I am very attached to all my vinyl collections - music that goes from classical music to 60’s/70’s jazz, 80’s punk rock bands, 90’s electronic, 2000 electroclash-whatever, 2005 minimal etc etc… difficult to just pick only one of those !
You recently played B2B with your friend Miss Kittin. What was the best moment of the night?
At one time Kittin played And I Miss You by Everything But The Girl, an edit/remix by Todd Terry. So I thought "Okay, then I can play Show Me Love by Robin S" - this old school hit from the 90’s. I have to say everyone was so happy to party, t0 just have fun - especially as it was just eight days after the Paris attacks. We really needed to be all together, and continue to do our job normally, even it was a bit difficult as we all think about the people that died there.
Homodrop is so glad to have you for the last edition of 2015! Tell us which track you really want to play during the night ?
I’d like to play one of the tracks from Markus Gibb’s new EP, out on Lumière Noire, a collection I’ve created on Kill the DJ. And I have tracks also to be coming on Lumière Noire from Moderna & Theus Mago to play for sure!
Can we expect a new album from Chloe soon ?
Yes, I am working on it!! Hope to finish SOOOOON!!!
Catch Chloé at Homodrop on Saturday 5 December from 9pm-5am at Dalston Superstore.
