Bio

The idea of Clay and Friends formed backstage after a show during  a Freestyle session. Since then, we have become a bilingual collective that amalgamates the different styles of music (hip -hop , funk, jazz , soul, reggae) . Our sound comes from a particular blend of live performance ( beatbox, brass , piano, guitar, bass, vocalist ) with an electronic facet ( sampling, mpc , scratching ) . The core sound of this group comes from Clays Mcing and Aydells beatbox , while the melodies and harmonies are put together by Samish and Clement on guitar and Pascal on the Bass .

 The ideals of simplicity and instinct are very present in this organic project in the sense that, the musicians  can feed off the energy of the crowd and exploit new paths to for each performance through spontaneity.

In November 2013, the group released its first EP : A Quest Called Jam III . Within the ideology of hip- hop, where the past is used to form the present, this project is a reflection of the cultural and musical diversity of the group insofar as it presents a collection of several musical styles and cultural backgrounds under the same title.
