Mike Clark began DJing at age 12. By high school, he was throwing his own parties and DJing in 21-and-up nightclubs. What began as a hobby was getting him booked for gigs and pushing other activities into the periphery. He was at the center of the techno movement and had to keep it spinning.
“Electronic music truly changed everything I was planning to do in the future,” he says.
Clark, who makes music under the moniker “Agent X,” frequently goes on tours to international venues and introduces a Detroit-cultivated sound to audiences all over the world. But the North End has kept him rooted in Detroit.
