The Rocks Off 100: DJ Klinch Asks, "Can You Dig It?"

Welcome to the Rocks Off 100, our portrait gallery of the most compelling profiles and personalities in the far-flung Houston music community -- a lot more than just musicians, but of course they're in there too. See the entire Rocks Off 100 at this link.

Who? DJ Klinch of "The Almighty Kracker Nuttz" introduces himself as "a Houston native who developed the itch to DJ while frequenting many of the big' parties' of the late '90s and Early 2000s." A 2002 move to San Diego set him about being submerged in DJ culture, where he says he decided to start DJing. Since Klinch moved back to Houston in early 2006, he says, "I have been trying the lace the people with 'That GOOD GOOD' every since.

Home Base: "Every week like clockwork!" swears Klinch of his numerous local residencies: "Whine Down Sundays" at Double Cross Lounge; "Tighten Up Tuesdays" at the Flat; and back at the Flat Fridays for "That GOOD GOOD." Aside from other special events in and out of town, he also holds a monthly happy hour at downtown's MKT Bar.

Why Do You Stay In Houston? "Houston is home base for me," he says. "This is the city where I really started to hone my craft and now I am fortunate enough to have the opportunity to throw parties and give people a chance to experience something different."
