Biography

A collaboration of musician/producer Mark de Clive-Lowe & singer-songwriter Bembe Segue. Half Japanese, half New Zealander, Mark is one of London’s most innovative producers & live performers, he has been involved with over 150 releases - on labels such as Masters at Work, Verve & Impulse - as well as releasing two highly acclaimed solo projects. He has remixed & collaborated with a range of artists as diverse as Lauryn Hill, Omar, Shirley Horn, Jill Scott, percussionist Sammy Figueroa, Ed Motta, Leon Ware & Shirley Bassey.

The other half of The Politik is the incomparable Bembe Segue, whose intoxicating, flirty vocals have won her huge praise amongst UK’s tastemakers and have lead to collaborations with a plethora of diverse people and styles - Pharaoh Sanders, 4Hero, Finn Peters, Silhouette Brown, and Ty, as well as leading her own 15 piece cosmic jazz funk outfit.

Mark and Bembe have been collaborating on a variety of projects for almost five years, yet The Politik is their first joint project. “We really found kindred creative spirits in each other” says Mark, “whether it’s soul, jazz, hip hop, afrobeat or avant garde we’re on similar pages… We saw this as being a chance for us to bring together the things we love and have fun with… The Politik has been a totally organic process”.
