Jace Clayton
Profile:
DJ Rupture is a bass visionary from New York City, known for adventurous sets that integrate music from the global South into the latest developments in club culture. Buy his new book! You won’t regret it.

Rupture has toured widely and released several critically-acclaimed albums since his 2001 debut, Gold Teeth Thief, which VIBE Magazine described as “a “stunning, globe-trotting, three-turntable mix… bumping, brash, and without borders.” His originality and grassroots cosmopolitan approach have led to collaborations with Norah Jones, the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra, filmmaker Joshua Oppenheimer, and guitarist Andy Moor (The Ex). In 2011 he was featured on the cover of Wire Magazine. Rupture has done 2 John Peel sessions, and hosted a radio show on award-winning independent station WFMU for 5 years.

In 2012 Rupture made most of his mix albums available for free – you can get them here. Recent projects include Sufi Plug Ins, a free suite of music-making software based on non-western conceptions of sound. He writes and gives talks on contemporary culture under his own name, Jace Clayton.
