DJ CMK…. aka Clayton M. Knight
My love for House Music oddly came at the expense of the Hip Hop era. I thought that at the time, myself and some of my best friends were going to be the next best thing closest to grand master flash and the furious five. This is where the name MC. BOOGIE NIGHTS began. Yet at the ripe age of 16yrs old I was riding on the #5 train when I saw a friend named Hector. Hector asked, "Yo, you ever heard of this place called the Garage?" "Nah" I replied. "Yo", he stated, with a strong tone, "you gotta check this place out." "Of course," I asked "why and what was so special about this place?" He explained, if you have never been to a real club this is one you need to see!
For me the walk up the ramp was confirmation I was in the right place. I never, ever heard of Larry Levan or what really house was all about. It was not hard for me to turn to what I now call the right side of music as opposed to the dark side lol.. The love affair begins with my first experience of hearing a sound system so moving that I could not believe.
Anyway with the evolution of music some 30yrs later, I find myself wanting to and living a dream, the likes of which playing a brand of House Music allows me DJ CMK to be happy at what I do. Providing the people who also love the music the gift to hear music the way they may like and are able to relate to. To all the listeners and to the many friends thank you for your time and you ears, with this platform let us each rise to the top together!
HOUSE MUSIC LIVES THROUGH US UNITED!
