Ludovic / Cloche
You might also know him as Cloche or Umbra. Ludovic is one of Con+ainer’s bosses, a label he decided to found to release not only the music he liked, but to break what he perceived as a certain monotony in the city of Porto. We’re glad he did, as it certainly adds to Portugal’s dance music big picture. Diversity is a beautiful thing.
The album he just released (through Con+ainer, of course) under the alias Umbra (co-produced by Lukkas), is what he describes as a peek into his experiences, his imagination, and the violence of birth, life, and death. The result is an hour of Techno that is as capable of roughness as of subtle moments that almost invite to rest and reflection.
A man of many faces, it’s hard to know for sure what’ll come out of his record bag. What we do know is that quality control is assured.
