After perfecting his production and DJ skills in hip hop—including performing in the States as a tour DJ for various artists—DJ E-Clyps followed his passion and stepped into the world of dance music. He has impacted the underground with a Hip Hop-influenced swagger all his own.

DJ E-Clyps has consistently proven that he delivers in the studio and on the decks. In 2017, he made his debut at Dirtybird Campout and has hit the ground running in 2018 as a DJ Mag breakthrough producer nominee. He’s also released music on Classic Music Company, Defected Records, and Dirtybird.

DJ E-Clyps first got involved with Give a Beat by participating in the signature Giant Jenga games at Dirtybird Campout. Apart from his involvement in Give a Beat, he has spoken at juvenile facilities, taught music production classes in inner city music programs, and advocated for causes he cares about on social media. In addition to Give a Beat, E-Clyps says, “I care about many issues that bring about equality and justice for all people, but as an African American, I deeply care about issues that affect people of color. When I am presented with an opportunity to be involved with organizations, I do my best to get involved if I feel I can bring something to the table to help contribute to it.”

“Give a Beat is an important cause to me because it is focused on highlighting issues that the dance community should be aware of. It is easy for people to not pay attention to issues that don't affect them directly. Give a Beat is striving to changing that.”
