New York Magazine's Brooklyn Music Special
/Rupture included in the New York Mag Music special on Brooklyn.
Jace Clayton, a.k.a. DJ /Rupture, is a one-man musical Venn diagram, linking up genres, people, styles, and beats. After seven years in Spain, he felt the call of “the land of caffeine and stress” and returned here, where he’s fallen for cumbia (something you’re more likely to hear in Nueva York than Barcelona). He also co-founded the Dutty Artz D.J. and production crew, hosts a show “Mudd Up!” on WFMU, and last year released the acclaimed Uproot mix tape. His follow-up, Solar Life Raft, with producer Matt Shadetek, is a homegrown affair, featuring everyone from Brooklyn art-rockers Gang Gang Dance to composer Nico Muhly.
