Clive’s music career started in 1994 with his involvement in his High School events in the East Rand township, Vosloorus. This was highly inspired by his collection of mix-tapes which included the greats like Ganyani, Tokzen and Bob Mabena’s drive time show that played on Radio Bop. His musical taste at the time covered a wide range of styles: Hip Hop (Krs One, Keith Murray, De la Soul…), Funk (Ashford and Simpsons, Kool and the Gang, Diana Ross…) and more specifically House music.This led him to a career in the South African Music Production and Dj Industries in which he has been a recognized player for the past 15 years.

Records. Clive has for years conceptualized and Co-0rdinated his own events. He has been
