A classically trained percussionist and composer, Cliff Pfeifer fell in love with electronic music in the 80’s and grew up in the booming 90’s Denver rave scene. He was simply an active participant in the scene until after college and in the early 2000’s he turned from raver to DJ. Within a year, he was playing at raves opening for legendary DJ’s and a resident DJ at various clubs in Denver spinning 4 to 5 nights a week - all while working as a gigging drummer, studio musician, audio engineer, music producer and artist manager.
During the rise of the internet he discovered his talents in digital marketing, website design and website development. His passion for music had been a lifelong pursuit, but after years of working in a cutthroat scene, combined with constant commercialization of dj’s, along with the general shadiness of the music industry, it was time for a change. The once exciting parties and club nights became monotonous as the scene shifted more towards superficial pop hits. He was no longer a DJ, he was a human jukebox playing for puppets and pocket change. He knew he was meant to do more with his life.
It was always his dream to be a jet setting DJ, but life had different plans and the world has plenty of DJ’s. These days, Cliff is a jet setting digital marketing and website specialist. He travels around the globe as a speaker, writer and community leader and helps make the world a better place through internet technology. His recent travels have led him to legendary clubs, DJ sets and events locally and around the globe. He constantly seeks adventure and craves techno music, he loves to get down, and is more than happy to let others handle the DJ work while he works it on the dance floor. He loves to share his music and energy with everyone and he always brings a ton of energy and good vibes with him wherever he goes. He always does his part where ever he is needed: be it a on dance floor, behind a computer, behind the scenes or behind the decks.
After a decade of absence from the scene, Cliff is dusting off the records. The resurgence of vinyl, his travels and experiences, along with involvement in the Denver underground scene and Burning Man community, has re-ignited his inner DJ. A wise and veteran DJ, he knows there is a style for every mood and the best tracks are the ones that get the crowd moving. No longer fueled by the kitchy NGR and trance music of the 90’s, his tastes are diverse and cover the full spectrum of dance music. He spins anything and everything the mood calls for. From chillout and downtempo to mid-tempo and glitch, from psychedelic and deep to banging house and techno. Not to mention, progressive, electro, breaks, dub, trance anthems and EDM - it all has a place in his heart.
