This Is How It Should Be Done: DJ Clark Kent, In Control WBLS
The first dj I ever met (and when I say dj, I mean ANYONE who ever played two records through a mixer) was Clark Kent, who, for me, will go down as dj idol, mentor and real friend. I'll drop some Clark Kent anecdotes in a later post, but in the meantime, I just had to drop this show for you super listeners. The tape that this file comes from used to sound a whole lot better, but it got played to death. This is 1989 and Clark sounds divine on the cut. And it wouldn't be a Clark Kent tape without Wrecks-N-Effect in the mix (I still wonder what that was about...) In the late 80's and heading into the early 90's, it was abundantly clear to me that THE dj that really mattered was Clark, the only other dj to bring it on that level being Kid Capri. To this day, no night has ever come close to what would go down at Mars on Tuesday nights at a party called Trip, where Clark would guest dj frequently and would have a packed second floor in the meat-packing dirstrict comkpletely and utterly mesmerized. I'll get into that later. For the record, if you are not Clark Kent from Brooklyn, who used to dj for Dana Dane, and later Biggie and Jay-Z, 1. you can't use the name Clark Kent and 2. you must stop using the word "Super" in from of your name... Oh, look how bored Clark looks playing with CD-Js in this picture. Haa!
