"Golf Clap differs from their peers by doing everything right." - Thump
DJs; producers; club headliners, festival regulars: Golf Clap are Hugh Cleal and Bryan Jones, a Detroit duo with an unmatched passion for house music and a seemingly endless supply of studio and club-focused creativity. With releases on some of the world’s most influential house labels already under their belts, along with a lauded Boiler Room session and an Essential New Tune ‘nod for “Bout That,” alongside Eyes Everywhere, they’re only just getting started.
With roots in the Detroit underground, booking local and international DJs to play at their own parties, Golf Clap have established themselves as in-demand artists and performers in their own right, via an irresistible combination of hard work and talent.
Releases on Toolroom, Relief, Simma Black, their own Country Club Disco imprint, and Kerri Chandler’s Madtech have announced Golf Clap as a musical force to be reckoned with - With fans including Carl Cox, Oliver Heldens, Claude VonStroke, Danny Howard and Green Velvet. In early 2017, this recognition peaked with Pete Tong naming their collaboration with Eyes Everywhere ‘Bout That’ as his Essential New Tune. After playing the track five weeks running on his BBC Radio 1 show, ‘Bout That’ will be released as part of Toolroom’s Ibiza album, due out May 2017.
It’s behind the decks that Golf Clap originally made their name, and their energy and passion for the craft of DJing shows no signs of abating. 2017 will mark their 4th straight year at Electric Forest (performing at both weekends of the festival). They have also performed at Movement, Mysteryland, Spring Awakening, North Coast, and Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival, and are adept at crafting highly creative, energetic sets across four decks: masters of live remixing, tweaking and layering up effects and of teasing out the music for maximum dancefloor impact.
Whether they’re playing clubs, warehouse shows or at an impromptu after-party – which they more than likely arranged themselves – the sheer love these guys have for playing records and making people dance is evident. Recent highlights include Holy Ship!, where the guys earned themselves hundreds of new fans while tagging with GRiZ, Mija and Will Clarke. Add to this a three-hour b2b session with Skream in Detroit, opening for Disclosure and Get Real, performing at the Dirtybird BBQ, playing at Ministry of Sound for Doorly & Friends, and it’s been a quite incredible 12 month period for Golf Clap.
As with every movement worth being a part of, Golf Clap’s self-made community started small: a group of like-minded artists and fans giving one another exactly what they needed to throw incredible parties. But as their profile has increased, word has spread both across the US and internationally. Go to any electronic music festival now and you’ll find a strong showing for their Country Club Disco merchandise and an ever-growing army of fans. And with a tour of the US’s major cities kicking off in May 2017, there’s never been a better time to see what all the fuss is about.
Their debut single "Another Way" on Freeze Dried smashed the Traxsource charts hitting #1 in the singles, tracks & deep house charts simultaneously and their follow up single "On To You" on i Records climbed into the top 10 on the site for two weeks.
Booked solid every weekend for the next 5 months in the US and Europe, you should catch them while you can at their own night & residency at Grasshopper Underground in Detroit where they play alongside acts like Ian Pooley, Eats Everything, Kevin Saunderson, Jimpster, Detroit Swindle, Mark Farina, John Acquaviva & Steve Lawler to name a few.
DJ and producer born 31 July 1984 in Nyack, New York, United States.
Navbox emigrated to the States in the 90s from Iran as a classically trained pianist with a deep passion for music. That passion turned him onto electronic music and he picked up a pair of turntables at the turn of the last century. In the early 2000's, he got his start playing in Washington DC before relocating to Boston and studying music engineering. Soon after, he found himself playing the underground circuit in Boston, comfortably tangled up in house & techno yet again.
Returning to the District in '08, he continued to pursue DJ'ing and found that the city was missing an underground dance music scene. He founded Stranger Than Paradise (STP) and began curating events in clubs, bars, warehouses, rooftops and wherever else he could. Navbox mastered his craft playing alongside leading talents like Cassy, Bruno Pronsato, Delano Smith, Jan Krueger and many others.
Fast forward to 2016 and Navbox has been at it for many years. Between DJ'ing and producing, he is booker and resident DJ for Flash in Washington DC, an incredible venue built for house and techno. His love for music is evident in his musical repertoire, spanning from deep house to techno, and his passion leads him to seek music that moves the feet as well as the mind. Navbox portrays the DJ-set as a journey, continually striving to break down static conceptions of house music in ways that inspire listeners beyond the confines of clubs and parties.

While the District of Columbia has seen a fluctuation of creative types recently, few artists have influenced the scene as prolifically as OZKER. Organic and locally grown, OZKER has established himself in the past few years as one of DC's hardest working DJ, Party Promoter, Producer and Visual Artist, all the while spreading that undeniable aura of being a loveable huggable type of guy. His devotion to the infectious groove and its counterpart, the bottomless beat, is matched only by his devotion to that trademark follicle foliage that you're bound to see bobbing up and down behind turntables throughout the city!
OZKER has opened for such noted talent as Dillon Francis, The Bloody Beetroots, Will Eastman, Gigamesh, Classixx, Tensnake, Oliver, The 2 Bears, Bit Funk, Anna Lunoe & Nickodemus, amongst many others. He holds several monthly residencies in the city, including nights at Eighteenth St Lounge, Dodge City, Marvin, Velvet Lounge and The Looking Glass.
