Ilictromix: CLAMR

I have been absolutely slammed this week with work so slammed that I'm late on this weeks Ilictromix. Lucky for me, this weeks Ilictromix artist CLAMR has put together a mix so great it made my weekend hustle manageable. Seriously this mix for me has been like a jolt of espresso after an all nighter.

A 24 year old from San Diego, Liam McManus is a Dj/Producer you should all keep on your radar this week. A quick glance at the tracklist reveals a super diverse and eccentric taste in a wide variety of genres. I picked him this week because of his love for a great well thought out set: "In my opinion, this mix really describes me as a person and as an artist. I love low-key but upbeat jams, that can get the party bumping, but can also be listened to on chill night in." When asked what he listens to: "I've been stuck on Neon Indian - Era Extraña, Washed Out - Life of Leisure and Party Supplies - Going Back To New York for a couple months now. I Also just picked up Daft Punk's Discovery on vinyl, so I've been rocking out to that recently as well."

CLAMR has been DJing for 8 years and producing for 7 of them. He told me if he wasn't producing he would be playing ice hockey. I for one am glad he choose Dj'ing.

McManus is also a pretty down to earth guy: "I'm always looking for fresh tracks to throw in my sets, as well as collaborate and network with other producers, DJ's or just music enthusiasts. So feel free to hit me up any time, and unlike some other people in the industry I promise I WILL respond."
