(Palinoia / The Bunker New York)
After a 5 city China tour for The Bunker New York's founder Bryan Kasenic and a crazy rooftop rave for Tokyo's Wata Igarashi, Say Yes is hosting a 4 city China tour in Guangzhou, Chengdu, Beijing, Shanghai for another Bunker member, actually an early resident Eric Cloutier, veteran of Detroit, New York and Berlin, a seasoned selector.
Eric Cloutier's sleek sound was born in Detroit, where he grew up, and honed over many years there and in New York, where he became a resident at The Bunker in 2010. Now based in Berlin, he's getting his feet wet as a producer, with EPs on Mosaic and Wolfskuil Ltd and another in the pipeline for Patrice Scott's label, Sistrum. But the sourcing and playing of records will always be his main obsession.
came up in Detroit in the '90s, catching the likes of Richie Hawtin at the height of their powers. Looking to broaden his horizons, he landed in New York and soon became integral to The Bunker, the city's long-running and highly respected techno showcase. As a resident, he played alongside some of electronic music's best acts, and his DJ bookings became a hot commodity worldwide.
These include local hotspots in his native Detroit, internationally acclaimed clubs in his current hometown of Berlin but also mythologised places like The Bunker in New York. In terms of festivals, only the finest will do, and as such Cloutier is one of the select few who gets invited to play the culturally considered affair that is Japan’s Labyrinth.
For just shy of 20 years, Cloutier has doggedly pursued one goal: to find the most mind-bending techno records possible and mix them together flawlessly. His tastes lean toward heady, timeless sounds, and his delivery is obsessively meticulous—this is a man who takes the art of mixing very seriously.
