CLOCKWORKDJ READY TO REP OHIO AT #13FEST
March 7, 2015
CLOCKWORKDJ is a producer, DJ, and overall embodiment of Ohio. Hailing from Cincinnati, he’s planted his roots while branching out to not only becoming a successful DJ, performing sets all across the country, but a masterful producer who’s pushing the boundaries of the genres we love. Oh, and have we mentioned he’s Mac Miller’s official DJ? CLOCKWORKDJ is the real deal, and we had the opportunity to ask him a few questions to get you ready for his performance at #13Fest.
#Fest: For those discovering CLOCKWORKDJ for the first time, how would you describe yourself to them?
CLOCKWORKDJ: 1+1+3. Enough said.
#Fest: Being Mac Miller’s official touring DJ, what’s the coolest thing you’ve done on the road with Mac?
CLOCKWORKDJ: I’m his official DJ, not just for touring. Whenever Mac has a show, you can bet I’m there. The coolest thing I’ve done on the road with Mac is see the WORLD.
#Fest: You’re working on releasing a brand new album soon, can you tell us more about it? What can we expect on it?
CLOCKWORKDJ: ALBUM! YES! I’M EXCITED FOR THE UNIVERSE! This is a project I’ve been working on since I came out the womb… subconsciously, and as I grew into my body, the music stared to take form. You can expect a complete mind-fuck. This album is like a spaceship orbiting the galaxy searching for undiscovered land. Expect SOUL, GALACTIC, BOUNCE music. This is a new genre of music that I’m creating.
#Fest: What’s the best thing about being from Cincinnati?
CLOCKWORKDJ: The best thing about being from Cincinnati is that it teaches you life lessons at a young age. If you’re from Cincinnati, you know, SHIT doesn’t come easy. You have to work hard and study long at whatever craft you choose. Cincinnati taught me to walk, talk, and how to keep my third eye open. Cincinnati made me a winner.
#Fest: What can we expect from you during your set at #13Fest? Any surprises in store?
CLOCKWORKDJ: I plan on giving the crowd some ear candy, playing exclusive records that they’ve not heard yet, mixed with MY custom 808’s and snares. I might even perform a song or two if Athens, OHIO is READY!? If I have a surprise and tell you, its not a surprise anymore ? Right? You’ll just have to wait and see…
#Fest: Any last words to those who are ready for Clockwork DJ at #13Fest?
CLOCKWORKDJ: Make sure you got your space boots laced up, your armor oiled up and ready to go, cause we hit the stars when it’s my TIME TO TAKE THE STAGE!
CLOCKWORKDJ will be performing on the Jagermeister Stage on April 18 at #13Fest. Tickets are still available - click here
