DJ Muzzell

WHAT DO YOU GET WHEN YOU COMBINE RELENTLESS HARDWORK AND DEDICATION? THE ANSWER IN THIS CASE IS A DMC CHAMPION. A VAST SCRATCH VOCABULARY, INTONATE EXPRESSION AND AN INTIMATE LYRICAL FLOW DISTINGUISHES MUZZELL (AKA RUSSELL CLARK) AS AN ARTIST AMONG A FLOCK OF ITCHY FINGERED SCRATCH DJS.

SNEEKING INTO HIS BROTHER’S BEDROOM TO MIX DRUM N BASS GAVE RUSSELL HIS FIRST TASTE FOR VINYL MANIPULATION BACK IN ’93, BUT IT WAS WITNESSING A DJ HYPE SET LATER THAT YEAR THAT REALLY OPENED UP HIS MIND TO THE POSIBILITIES OF SCRATCHING.

THE NEXT FEW YEARS SAW MUZZELL HONING HIS SKILLS FAST AT VARIOUS NIGHTSPOTS AROUND UK AND ABROAD PLACES LIKE GERMANY, FRANCE, CZECH REPUBLIC, SPAIN AND GREECE.

FROM SCRATCHING FOR NU-METAL BAND STOOFA TO RIPPING SHOWS AS DJ FOR UK STALWART BLADE, DJ MUZZELL BEGAN TO MASTER THE ART OF WORKING A CROWD, AN IMPORTANT ELEMENT OF DJING OFTEN LOST BENEATH TECHNICAL TRICKERY. MUZZELL HAS INCREASINGLY GAINED RESPECT FROM HIS PEERS SINCE MAKING HIS FIRST APPEARANCE ONTO THE DMC STAGE IN ‘99 FOR HIS MORE COMPOSITIONAL AND TUNEFUL SETS.

AN ACCOMPLISHED DRUMMER, MUZZELL’S MUSICAL INFLUENCES COVER A WIDE RANGE OF STYLES.

MUZZELL IS CURENTLY WORKING AS THE BACKBONE IN 2 LIVE BANDS AND PRODUCING HIS OWN ALBUM AND BATTLE BREAK MATERIAL. YOU CAN ALSO HEAR HIS WORK AS GUEST APPERANCES ON OTHER PEOPLES SINGLES, ALBUMS AND MIXTAPES
