“The more people that listen to my music, the bigger and stronger my beard gets… everyone’s a winner, baby.” Dirtybird-affiliated house producer Will Clarke introduces himself.
Who are you?
A 25 year old non-drinking, non-drug-taking, bearded DJ and producer based in Bristol (well, the outskirts, but I always say Bristol as I can’t really describe where I live – it’s in the middle of nowhere…).
What do you sound like?
In between ghetto house and house with a touch more bass.
Why should we listen to you?
I don’t like telling people they ‘should’ do anything, however if you like a little mid-week boogie or if you’re reading this before you go out on the weekend then give my tracks a listen and it may put you in the mood. Plus I have worked out that the more people that listen to my music, the bigger and stronger my beard gets… everyone’s a winner, baby.
What else have you got coming out in the near future?
I’ve had a couple of releases on Dirtybird called Badness, The Boogie Woogie, Jackintosh, and 808 Frenzy. I’ve done a remix of Azari & III‘s ‘Reckless’ on Turbo Recordings. In the future I have a release coming out on Defected in September.
What song sums you up? Why?
Detroit Grand Pubahs – ‘Sandwiches’. It’s fun and weird, plus I love a good sandwich.
What or who is your biggest influence and why?
I guess it’s the whole Dirtybird family. Every single one of them has their own style which all fits under one umbrella of music. I think it takes real dedication to do that in an industry where individualism is hard to come across.
Where can we hear your music?
SoundCloud, Beatport, my studio (thats an invitation, by the way)… P.S. If you Google my name you will get a famous Iron Man competitor – that’s not me either. Put ‘music’ or ‘DJ’ in the search box including my name.
Where will you be in five years’ time?
Writing music, playing in clubs and keeping my beard looking tight as fuck. Also I would love to be in the position to help build other people’s music careers and to give people the opportunities I’ve been given.
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself.
I was black belt in kickboxing by the age of 15.
