Hailing from Jamaica Queens, the son of immigrant Jamaican parents, DJ Clay Nice, dubbed the ‘Silent Assassin’ by DJ Flash G, has developed a strong ear for great music and demonstrated a real talent for rocking crowds during his 25-year career as a club, lounge, and private event DJ. This is displayed in his personality and how he exudes confidence almost flawlessly in all that he does. With residencies in New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Atlanta, DJ Clay Nice has earned a nationwide reputation for bringing the perfect musical vibe for any crowd in any situation.

DJ Clay Nice’s early influences while growing up in Queens, NYC include family members who sang (Dad was a baritone in Choir), played a multitude of musical instruments (Uncle a member of the U.S. Military Orchestra), and collected thousands of records (uncle with a large Jazz collection).

Clay Nice is a hip-hop kid at heart. He was amazed at the talents of radio mix-show DJs and how they selected the hottest records every week for the tri-state area with impeccable skill.  Clay Nice got his first taste of rocking his own crowds in high school with bags of cassette tapes and CDs.  Clay Nice learned how to use turntables in college. He put his first post-graduation paycheck to good use and bought his first set of Technics 1200s. It’s been on and poppin’ ever since!

DJ Clay Nice has been married for 17 years. And has two children. These days he specializes in rocking “grown and sexy” crowds with the best in hip-hop, reggae, R&B, classics, and house music spanning from the Motown era to present.  Primarily still using the turntables he bought after college, his style incorporates classic b-boy turntablism/juggling, smooth melodic mixing/blending, dancehall “selectah” vibes, and new school innovation to create musical experiences that party people remember long after they settle their bar tabs and go home.
