Biography

Moussa Clarke is an inspirational DJ/producer with a worldwide reputation for igniting dancefloors from London to Moscow to Tokyo and back again. Never far from the madding crowd – apart from when he’s cooking up monster basslines and electrochemical beats in the studio – he’s also founder of the thriving London-based label and DJ agency Oven Ready. Born in Switzerland, half English, half Senegalese, he found his feet in France and Italy, and then travelled the globe before moving to the UK aged 12. His father an immigrant from Dakar, his mother a roving bohemian opera singer, his unique personal history created the perfect storm. Cue Moussa Clarke: a multilingual, musically gifted and stylistically diverse DJ.

Moussa’s passion for emotive dance music hails partly from the classical styles passed down by his mother. He also grew up under the influence of 80s pop music, learning to play both the guitar and keyboards. But more than anything, he was turned on to the magic of loops through pioneers such as Kevin Saunderson, Leftfield and Slam as well as house music luminaries like Marshall Jefferson, Tony Humphries and Frankie Knuckles. Then came the UK’s ‘Summer of Love’. A time when Moussa would relish the nocturnal rumblings of Mr C’s infamous Braintree Barn sessions in Essex, and party hard at the Crazy Club in London. He made the transition from the dancefloor to the decks at the age of 18, and won his first break in 1990 when he moved to Paris.
