Clare Jasmine (CJ aka BKLYN SLICE) studied music production techniques at Boston University and added to her formal education by studying and co-producing songs with several renowned music producers and engineers, including John Wicks, Fred Jorio, and the Kajem/Victory Studios recording team of Gene Leone.
From 1988 to 1998, Clare produced over 200 dance tracks and remixes with albums and EPs pressed on vinyl and CD for three record labels. Her 1996 mashup of Madonna and Gloria Estefan is regarded as the first multi-ethnic, cross-genre mashup in history. Her 1998 remix of Brandy's "Almost Doesn't Count" takes the R&B hit to the dancefloor.
From 1999 to 2001, Clare produced dance music under the name Gorgeous Girl and earned television credits on four MTV shows, including The Osbournes, MADE, Undressed, and Sausage Factory, as well as music credits in commercials and videos. Her music has been played in 27 countries.
Presently, in these quarantine times, Clare finds joy mixing and mashing up music from completely different genres to create a unified whole with the underlying message that no matter what our differences are, we can all share the same space and have a good time.
Her current songs and mixes are on SoundCloud and Mixcloud.
