The New Year has provided significant opportunities for Golf Clap’s members Hugh Cleal and Bryan Jones. They’ve recently been booked for two of the largest music festivals in the state, Movement Electronic Music Festival in Detroit and Electric Forest in Rothbury. They were recently voted “Best Electronic Artist in Detroit” by the readers of Real Detroit Weekly for their Best of 2014 issue. They had a very successful new single on Grant Nelson’s Freeze Dried label, and the club where they throw their events, The Grasshopper Underground, was just voted “Best House Music Venue” for the second year in a row.
Golf Clap is not only known for their impressive discography and crowd pleasing dj sets, but also for their unpredictable and incredibly entertaining antics. Over the past year, they have been invited to play all over the country alongside industry giants, as both headline and auxiliary entertainers. In addition, they played more than 150 shows in 2013, and are already boasting a schedule replete with coast-to-coast bookings for the 2014-year. In addition to their headline events, Hugh and Bryan have shared the stage with a veritable who’s who of veterans and rising-stars alike. Their guest mixes for Rinse FM, Ministry Of Sound, and Pulse Radio have caught the ears of discerning listeners around the world.
Their fresh approach, to what Hugh and Bryan refer to as “peak-hour deep house,” has made them a crowd favorite from city to city. They’ve been performing electrifying back to back dj sets three to seven days a week ever since their debut release, Another Way, shot straight to the number one position on Traxsource, and finished the year in the Top 10 singles of 2013. Their hard work and dedication continues to show as they prepare a very busy touring and release schedule for the year and are launching their new label, Country Club Disco. Golf Clap will continue to uphold their strong presence in the dance music community this year, forever pushing the music they love to the masses.
