#GetFamiliar. If you’re a fan of Clinton Sparks‘ classic mixtapes, you should be well-acquainted with that drop. Boston’s Clinton Sparks has been around for a minute, with his first single dropping on Wreck back in 2001. He was more versed with the hip-hop scene then, but has always been on the forefront of what’s hot in the overall music scene. The last four years found Clinton going from dropping tapes that helped introduce the likes of Mike Posner and Chester French to fully embracing the dance music scene. His EDM work started really getting play over the last two years, with “My Awesome Mixtape” signifying how deep he was into this new wave of dance music. Currently, Clinton’s signed to Photo Finish / Island Def Jam, with an album (Disco Ball & Chain) on the way. His new single, the RiFF RAFF-featured “Stay With You Tonight” is due out on December 10, but Clinton isn’t always stuck in the high-energy side of music. We’re proud that Clinton decided to take things a bit deeper, and stepping a bit to the left for his official DAD mix, dropping a mix that features everyone from Kaytranada to Disclosure. He’s really out chea grinding, and for him to take the time out to drop some science and flex his crates? We’re thankful.
