DJ Clock broke into the music scene in 2007, after a brief stint at a Music Production & Dj Training Project in Rosebank, South Africa.
He went on to produce his first certified hit “Úbala” for a Kwaito band called “Big Nuz” in 2008 which went on to win a number of awards at the “SOUTH AFRICAN MUSIC AWARDS” & “METRO FM AWARDS”.
Then in 2009, 20-year-old Dj Clock released his debut album ‘The First Tick’. The album reinforced that he was not a one hit wonder, this was reflected by his album sales with his debut album reaching Platinum status and landed Dj Clock two SAMA nominations (Best Urban Dance Album and Best Record of the year for ‘Umahamba Yedwa which was a huge hit).
Closing the gap between him and other well established record labels, Dj Clock went on to launch is own production house ÄM-PM Productions. This move was kick-started by Clock’s desire to expand his skills as a businessman as well as an artist.

After a 3 year highly successful run, Dj Clock decided to take a break from releasing music. The intention behind the break was the desire to continue making fresh, innovative and quality music. He used the time to re-thin his musical direction and brand.
On the business front, AM-PM signed a deal with Universal Music South Africa, which is one of the biggest recording labels in the world. The deal marked growth and excellence for AM-PM Productions.
