DJ/rupture: Mudd Up!

I’ve been listening to Mudd Up!, a weekly radio show presented by DJ /rupture (a.k.a. Jace Clayton) on WFMU (a listener-funded station in New York), for such a long time. It has opened me up to so many things: cumbia, reggaetón, dabke, Autotuned Berber pop, noise, tropicália… It goes on. Jace covers a lot of ground, sonically and geographically, and is pretty much my favourite DJ, whether in a club or on the radio. He’s also one of the best writers on music around, and has a forthcoming book that will be published by Farrar, Straus & Giroux.
