CCL is a Seattle based DJ, organizer, visual artist and producer. Having lived in Bristol, Rome, the United States and London, CCL’s wide ranging DJ sets are influenced by their peers, and the intersect between UK, Midwest US sounds and span the vast array of dusty bins they dig through.
CCL has an affinity for fluidity and liminality, weaving music together through distinct narratives that open rhythmic wormholes and the space between all genres and tempos. Harmonizing and connecting disparate sound into bold and enticing ecosystems is constantly present in their DJ sets–blooming and molting through a plethora of infectious steppers, dusty neon 80s synths, glittering footwork, psychedelic post-punk guitars, bubbling drum and bass, twisted dub, supple ambience, and all that lies beyond and between. They've garnered accolades for their adventurous musical vision and knack for tension, storytelling and release - their sets have been written up as “best of the year” in Pitchfork, Resident Advisor, FACT, Mixmag, Crack Magazine, The Guardian, Groove Magazine and more. Their eclectic production with fellow Seattle Flora FM was proclaimed as one of the best tracks of 2019 on Resident Advisor and they have been seen performing their unique musical vision at the likes of Unsound, Rural Japan, Honcho Campout, Movement Detroit, Rewire etc.
Extending beyond their personal output, CCL is a lead producer and curator for New Forms Festival in Vancouver, Decibel, and Corridor in Seattle - all North American festivals sharing a common thread of uplifting sound and visual artists through forward momentum and community. Their drive and love for bringing people together through music is boundless. They are a key member of TUF, a collective of trans, non-binary people and cis-women based in Seattle. CCL and many members of TUF unite to help promote transcendental dancing and learning from one another through events, workshops, and the annual TUFFEST that occurs each summer.
