In just six years as a professional DJ, Boston’s own Clinton Sparks has set himself apart from the rest of the field. His drive to succeed, coupled with his creative marketing & sales ideas, have helped him emerge from a cluttered field of DJs as one of the most exciting figures in the music game. These days DJs are a dime a dozen. To stand out regionally is a task in itself. Clinton has blown past the goal of being a regional figure and has positioned himself as a pre-eminent DJ known throughout the world, through his radio presence, mix-tapes & in the club.
Starting in 1998 with an unbranded 10-city nationally syndicated mixshow through Super Radio, Clinton has taken that notoriety & ballooned it into his own personality branded #1 rated syndicated mix show called ‘SmashTime Radio’ in several top US markets & worldwide in Canada, Europe and Australia. Most recently Eminem asked Clinton to be apart of his totally uncensored hip-hop channel Shade 45 on Sirius Satellite Radio. Broadcasting live every week from NYC, Clinton hits the national airwaves ‘shock-jock’ style with the newest exclusives, custom remixes and special guests celebrities.
Clinton Sparks has traveled the world playing in countries such as Australia, Hong Kong, England, Ireland, Scotland, Mexico, Canada, etc. There are few DJ’s that can produce the excitement that Clinton Sparks does in the club, which is what makes him such a hot commodity for promoters who will fly him half way around the world for him to perform. When he is at work you can feel the energy and passion he has for the music. As he aggressively switches from record to record the crowd feeds off his intensity. Clinton’s record selection, energy and attitude truly define him as an artist. Hearing and watching him play is a performance in itself!
His shrill catchphrase ‘Get Familiar’ garners instant reaction when it rings over the airwaves during his top-rated broadcasts, in the clubs and on his mixtapes. Artists from Kanye West, 50 Cent, Eminem to Pharrell of the Neptunes & beyond have all proceeded to ‘Get Familiar’ with Clinton, either hosting his radio shows or making special guest appearances on his nationally prominent mix-tapes.
While succeeding in the music field, Clinton’s diversity immensely adds to his allure. Aside from his prowess as a DJ, he has written comedy for Boston’s #1 rated morning show (JAMN 94.5), toured as an opening act with Joey McIntyre (of New Kids fame), is a nationally recognized music producer (producing and writing for Akon, The Notorious B.I.G, Ludacris, Busta Rhymes, Diddy, D-Block and Mobb Deep, among others), and as an artist dropping his own albums featuring some of the hottest hip-hop and R&B stars. So whether its over the airwaves of 40+ stations, via satellite, or in the streets with his 500,000+ mix-tapes, Clinton has surpassed 99% of the DJ field!and he wont be content until he is at the top of the pile. Get Familiar!
