GEORGE CLANTON, MAGDALENA BAY, NEGATIVE GEMINI DJ
Use it to
George Clanton is a multidiscipline artist best known as the founder of 100% Electronica. A musician in his own right, Clanton's name has been synonymous with the popular cult genre, Vaporwave from as early as 2012. In 2015, George dropped his aliases (ESPRIT 空想, Mirror Kisses) and released 100% Electronica under his real name, which was named one of the top 10 albums of 2015 by Gorilla Vs Bear. On his 2018 album Slide, Pitchfork said he “is exactly the kind of artist chillwave could have used a decade ago” with comparisons to Ariel Pink and John Maus while The Needle Drop’s Anthony Fantano deemed his music “orgasmic.” Alongside his personal discography, now spanning 7 full length albums, Clanton formed the 100% Electronica record label and fashion line, who’s roster boasts a long list of high profile vaporwave artists including Small Black, Negative Gemini and Windows96.
With his latest venture, Virtual Utopia, Clanton created a first-of-its-kind VR experience that marries online concerts with stunning panoramic 3D visuals. While the first two installments (beginning April 4th 2020) were performed and animated entirely by 100% Electronica artists, Virtual Utopia now seeks to become a discovery platform for indie musicians and animators in general. Through partnership with Red Bull, Virtual Utopia offers micro-grants and tutorials for those wishing to teach themselves how to make VR music videos.
