Biography

DJ /rupture is the pseudonym of Jace Clayton, a producer and DJ, formerly based in Barcelona, but now New York City. He used to play in the collective Toneburst. DJ /rupture’s first big break came in 2001 with Gold Teeth Thief, a mixtape which mixes hip hop, ragga, breakcore, jungle, noise, modern classical and music from around the globe. His second mixtape Minesweeper Suite was an even greater success, with the UK music magazine The Wire calling it one of the 10 best records of 2003. A year later, /rupture produced Special Gunpowder, his most critically acclaimed album to date. He has appeared on John Peel’s BBC radio show twice, in addition to playing on The Breezeblock. /rupture is also part of the musical group Nettle and runs his own label, Soot Records, and co-runs Dutty Artz.

    He released a brilliant album in 2013 under his real name, a tribute to Julius Eastman.. completely unlike the /rupture stuff, but it's amazing work if you're down with minimalism & jazz

    I feel a bit like crying. I hope he's as good as he comes across in print. I feel kind of related to him somehow. It's the oddest feeling considering I know nothing about him, but I'm really interested and excited to learn and hear more. What an inspirational writer, just stopped by his blog for the radio show.

    It is, the chaotic Missy Elliot remix is great, first Rupture I remember hearing. And yes, his radio show is one of the best things going, period.
