NYC-via-LA DJ Clockwork likes to stay busy. Hot off the release of his latest “Bootleg” mash-up collection (yours for the one-time fee of a Facebook ‘Like’), the electro house producer just dropped his remix of Congorock’s tune with Stereo Massive and Sean Paul called “Bless di Nation.” It’s currently streaming for free on Soundcloud.
Clockwork (AKA RL Grime) describes the remix as ‘Quack House.’ We’re not totally sure what that means, but it might refer to that wobbly bass tone which could pass for a pitched-down duck call. Or maybe he’s trying to align his particular brand of bass music with A-Trak’s? Either way, Clockwork’s take on “Bless di Nation” adds some sorely-needed muscle to the original. The official release is slated for Jan 8th on Ultra Records.
The DJZ/10 is a collection of ten DJs that we think you should know about now. Some of them are already familiar to you, others you may have never heard of. The list is not based on (1) a secret computer algorithm, (2) social media popularity, or (3) payola. Every month or so we get together to decide if somebody from the broader A…Z directory is about to break out and should be included in the DJZ/10, or if somebody already on the list, for that matter, is “phoning it in” and deserved to be replaced by another DJ who is more worthy.×
