Have you noticed how House DJs and their hotness are often overlooked? Or is it just me? Guys, I’ve been in lala land for a young minute but I’m back and ready to crown this week’s Man Crush Monday- DJ Clock.
DJ Clock is a multi-award winning House and Dance music DJ and producer best known for his hit single, Pluto (Remember You) featuring Beatenburg.
He has been making for the past 9 years after he broke into the music scene in 2007, following a brief time at a Music Production & Dj Training Project in Rosebank. He went on to produce his first certified hit Úbala for a Kwaito band called Big Nuz in 2008, which went on to win a number of awards at the South African Music Awards and Metro FM Awards.
His first album, The First Tick, reached Platinum status and even went on to be nominated in some of the biggest categories (Best Urban Dance Album and Best Record of the year for Umahamba Yedwa, which was a huge hit).
He is also a businessman, who has his own production house, AM-PM Productions, which he released his second album The Second Tick under, along with producing records for well know artist like Mzekezeke, Bricks, Bantu Soul and many more.
His third album, The Third Tick, was also a win and reached Gold Status and a Metro FM Award. Don’t you just love how creative naming his album according to his name is? Even his production company!
AM-PM Productions signed a deal with Universal Music South Africa and through this, the DJ has released his history making, 6 CD album, The Fourth Tick which reached Platinum status. The album, which contains 6 discs, was named after the units of time such as seconds, minutes, hours and so forth.
The Fourth Tick featured hit songs such as Pluto (Remember You) with Beatenburg and a song dedicated to his son, When Lelo Was Born. Pluto (Remember You) went on to reach international acclaim with request from international acts (Flic Flac & Western Union) to remix the song.
DJ Clock is clearly a very accomplished man who has the golden touch when it comes to hits. He has worked with the crème de la crème of the industry and is low key with his life. Do you agree with us making him our Man Crush for today?
