Detroit duo Golf Clap brings the deep, acid tech-house to Seismic
Perhaps one of the most talked about duos in the house scene right now is Hugh
Cleal and Bryan Jones of Golf Clap. The Detroit natives have been around the block once or
twice and are starting to finally get the recognition they deserve. Building support from the
ground up, the two technically proficient DJs and producers have a fan base that would die for

only artists dedicated to the intricacies of DJing can do. Don’t sleep on their set because Golf
Clap is sure to make the ground shake!
