From his humble beginnings learning to spin on two JVC turntables, to producing hard driving progressive trance in his self owned studio, CL McSpadden has become one of the most sought after and respected Producers-Remixers-DJ’ in Arizona. For the past 15 years, CL has witnessed and led the Arizona progressive music movement. By the late 1980’, CL was opening up for two of the hottest nightclubs in Phoenix- Planet Earth and Utopia. His talent was soon recognized and he quickly landed a residency at one of the leading nightspots in Arizona- Club 411.
Currently CL is a resident at the influential Insomnia in Scottsdale, Arizona. He has served up his luscious beats live at clubs such as Utopia in Las Vegas, Visions in Memphis, and Insomnia in Los Angeles. CL has opened for top name artists B.T., Christopher Lawrence, Donald Glaude, and Taylor. Whether at a dance club or desert massive, he consistently lays down brilliant and clean sets that exceed the standard dance floor craze.
CL also carries a heavy studio schedule as a Producer and Remixer. Labels such as Atlantic, Epic, Jive, Maverick, Stress, Virgin, and Limbo (UK) seek his talents to reengineer their tracks on a regular basis. Collaborating with DJ Markus Schulz, “Lost Without You” by Jaynne Hanna, was remixed and re-released because of its appearance on Sasha & Digweed’ “Northern Exposure-Expeditions” CD. Original song productions include his highly acclaimed “Galea-Omni”, “Centrode-Luminous”, and new Hook Records recording “Barracuda”. Publications such as MIXER Magazine and XLR8R have endorsed his genius for “Fireball” and “Teleport”. When CL isn’t in the studio crafting solid music, he can be found working on a nationally syndicated mixshow at Hot Mix Radio Network.
The ever changing path of progressive music will leave some unrecognized. It is his talent, innovation, and sincere passion for music that will continue to propel CL McSpadden to the forefront of the global pack.
