Kool Clap

It’s one thing to have the French Touch, but it’s another thing to slap those synth sounds into a hip hop-edged electro-funk massage. Tunisian-born Parisian Kool Clap knows his history in more ways than one. He plays it cool, since being introduced to the studio of Vulture impresario Alan Braxe ten years ago and discovering his stepdad’s synth collection well before that. With the Stardust co-pilot as your mentor, it might be hard to go too far wrong, but this skateboarder takes diverse influences from Brian Wilson, Lifelike, Slave and Dr. Dre to make the electro-funk phenomenon truly his own.
