Cli-N-Tel (born Marquette Hawkins) is a D.J./rapper from Compton, California, most noted for joining the World Class Wreckin’ Cru (1983-1985) and his contribution to the break-through West Coast Electro-hop records “Surgery” and “Juice”. Shortly after leaving the Cru, Cli-N-Tel released another well-regarded electro record titled “2030” on Unknown DJ’s Techno Hop label in 1986. Two years later, he resurfaced on Sutra Records releasing a pair of singles. However Cli-N-Tel eventually focused his attention on creating film screenplays, moving away from releasing albums. In 1993, he contributed a track to the Dr. Dre anthology album, Concrete Roots. During the late 1990s, Cli-N-Tel stationed himself in Japan working on several hip-hop tracks and releasing a full-length album entitled Shining on the Funk on the Japanese Blue Dolphin label. In 2005, Cli-N-Tel started work on a throwback electro track for an upcoming compilation album.
