The Cleer Consortium is made up of four UK-based artists—Binni, Suade, Clarke Sawkill, and William Welt—who met through the Newcastle club scene and the Cleer club night, which has played host to some of minimal and techno’s finest DJs, from Steffi to Matt Tolfrey. The quartet also run the Eye Shadow label, kicking it off with Eye Shadow 001, a now sold-out vinyl-only release featuring four cuts spanning the house and techno spectrum. As an XLR8R exclusive, The Cleer Consortium has offered up “Cleerly Jazz,” a thumping and groovy cut with devilishly echoing bass stabs, razor-sharp percussion, and a galloping stride that is sure to blow any dancefloor to pieces. “Cleerly Jazz” is available for free download below, and make sure to keep an ear out from more from The Cleer Consortium and Eye Shadow.
