Clément Leroux Loves Delicious Miso Soup

French producer, singer, and songwriter, Clément Leroux stopped by the K-Swiss pop-up studio during the Nexus Radio Lounge Amsterdam to talk about his latest projects, his ADE experience, and to take the Nexus Take 5 quiz.

Clément Leroux is lauded for his indie rock style of electronic music. He is most well-known for his 2018 single “U Got My Heart,” a floaty duet recorded with his then-girlfriend, Emma Hoet. Clément earned a degree in sound engineering at SAE institute in London, and is a multi-faceted instrumentalist, playing guitar, piano, and bass guitar. He has been playing music since the age of 7, when he started learning to play the piano. Just a couple of years into his music career, his songs have already been streamed over 8 million times.

While he was in the K-Swiss pop-up studio, Clément talked about his new single, and dropped news of a soon-to-be-released album in the works.  

On the question of what inspires him, Clément said: 

“People. I get inspired by people. And I get really inspired by locations as well. Like, locations and people. People I meet, places I go, they’re just like the basic inspiration.”

When asked what he was like in high school, Clément told us:

“Oooh, well, I loved talking to everyone in high school. I was kind of that guy, I was also kind of a bad student as well. I wasn’t doing much because I discovered music, so I was basically just producing in my room.”

In the same vein, when we asked him what advice he’d give his younger self, Clément said:

“Oooh, don’t rush. Don’t try to do things too quickly. Just do your thing, and believe in yourself, really. That’s the most important.”
