DJ's sweet smell of success

WHAT started off as a mere chore has exploded into a professional music career.

It's quite interesting at times when you learn how other people's musical journeys started and unfolded.

Take DJ Clock for instance. His musical odyssey started off pretty much as a chore when he would change vinlys on the family's stereo for his father.

And out of that, love for music developed and has blossomed over a decade.

Today he is among the sought after disc jockeys.

Born in Vosloorus on the East Rand, when he started playing at high school gigs and weddings in the township his friends and followers dubbed him DJ Isikhathi because of his punctuality.

"I was always on time on everything I did even reading the atmosphere, which required a certain type of music. So because of that they called me DJ Isikhathi.

"But when I launched my professional career with my first project, I decided to adopt a new name which basically means the same thing."

He has mesmerised the youth and house followers with Umahamba Yedwa from his first project. He is back with another new release.

"My first project did very well. It went platinum, which is really an achievement," he says.

DJ Clock admits that he is not a conventional musician, though he writes his own songs as well as producing.

"I can write, compose and produce but I can't sing. Maybe sometime in the future I will get to sing. I still consider myself a musician."

He has worked with DJ Fresh and produced for artists such as DJ Tira, Sindo, Euphonics, Brickz and China.
