DJ Soft Touch
A veteran of local LA bands such as The Mojo Filters, Love Grenades, & Black Sugar, Clifton’s start as a DJ came about because of his band memberships. Often asked to guest DJ shows that one of his bands played, DJ’ing soon took over and became his main vocation. In his time as a DJ, Clifton (aka DJ Soft Touch) maintained a six year residency at the Beauty Bar (RIP) with DJ Dia (Café’ Bleu, Bang, Club Underground, Super Soul Sundays), was a part of Chinatown’s legendary indie dance club Club Transistor, and also held residency at famed Britpop night Club Underground. Currently, he can be seen every Saturday at the Echo DJ’ing for Funky Sole, one of LA’s longest lasting clubs and one of the only clubs dedicated to rare funk and soul grooves. As well as making frequent guest appearances at LA clubs, Clifton has DJ’d several times for The Getty Museum, the Orange County Museum of Art, and is a frequent contributor to the Aquarium Drunkard music blog (see “Clifton’s Corner” on the site).
