Subterranean Homesick Grooves with DJ Bolivia – 1st & 3rd Tuesday night of the month at 12AM (JST)
DJ Bolivia is Jonathan “Scooter” Clark, an Atlantic Canadian DJ and music producer who owns and operates a small recording studio in Sackville, New Brunswick. Jonathan is a classically trained pianist, who also plays the guitar and a few other instruments. Thanks to a career as a nightclub manager for a number of years, Jonathan also became skilled as a DJ. His primary focus when playing internationally is house/trance/techno, especially progressive and tech house, but he also frequently plays mainstream/top40 sets at venues closer to home.
In 2009, Jonathan enrolled at the Berklee School of Music in Boston, and is currently working through a pair of Masters programs in Music Theory and Production. Jonathan’s core program of studies at Berklee will wrap up in mid-2012. At that point, his goal is to start working on electronic music production professionally, and to operate the recording studio as a secondary focus, although he also does seasonal summer work in Canada’s reforestation industry.
When it comes to DJ’ing, Jonathan likes to be flexible. The focus of the DJ Bolivia website is mostly on various forms of house music, with trance and techno influences. Jonathan also has a weekly radio show, Subterranean Homesick Grooves, which is broadcast on terrestrial radio in Atlantic Canada, and is also podcast both through its own website and through iTunes. For the radio show, most episodes are focused primarily on progressive & tech house. But variety is the spice of life, so if you look at his website, you’ll notice that occasionally that he’ll play live shows that focus entirely on drum & bass, deep house, hip hop, or classic rock.
As a DJ, Jonathan has been asked to play alongside artists such as Danny Howells, Nic Fanciulli, and DJ Dan. He’s been privileged to have worked on media/video projects with artists like Josh Gabriel and Dave Dresden (of Gabriel & Dresden), DJ Heavygrinder, and Colette. And in terms of influences, above and beyond the aforementioned names, he’s been heavily influenced by a variety of house, trance, and techno DJ’s/producers, such as Max Graham, Armin van Buuren, Sasha, John Digweed, Hernan Cattaneo, Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin, Danny Teneglia, Ferry Corsten, Mark Farina, Solarstone, Junkie XL, Serge Devant, Morgan Page, Dave Aude, Noel Sanger, & Sultan, as well as Atlantic Canadian favorites such as Sean Keating, Jay Vasseur, Jay Hamilton, Sonny D, Logan Hudak, Donovan Morgan, and David Anthony.
