DJ Clifton Soul Shakedown
A veteran of local LA bands such as The Mojo Filters and Love Grenades, Clifton’s start as a DJ came about because of his band memberships. Often asked to guest DJ shows that one of his bands played, DJ’ing soon took over and became his main vocation.
In his time as a DJ, Clifton (aka DJ Soft Touch) maintained a six year residency at the Beauty Bar, was a part of famed
indie dance club Club Transistor, and also held a residency at Britpop night Club Underground.
Currently, he can be seen weekly at The Standard in downtown L.A., Saturdays at Broken Shaker at the Freehand DTLA, and at The Echo for Funky Sole, one of LA’s longest running clubs and one of the only clubs dedicated to rare funk and soul grooves. As well as making frequent guest appearances at LA clubs, Clifton has DJ’d several times for The Getty Museum, the Orange County Museum of Art, and has been a contributor to the Aquarium Drunkard and Punk Aristocrats blogs (see “Clifton’s Corner” and "Snap, Crackle, & Bop"). He has also returned to live music and can be seen with his own band, The Mercury Wheel.
