Clinton Sparks Guest Blog: “Inside your car looks like the trash compactah from Star Wars”
Thanks to PUMPTHEBEAT for the EXCLUSIVE! Peep the story of Clinton + Mike Posner below
We are extremely excited to announce that Clinton Sparks will be joining us as a guest blogger and sharing some stories from his years of experience in the music industry. Check out what Clinton had to say about about Mike Posner in his first Pump The Beat post!
“So one day my manager calls me and says, “You should check out this dude Mike Posner, he has some good music.” So I go and get familiar with him and his music. I instantly liked his unique rough around the edges sound and immediately got some ideas & knew I wanted to work with him.
I got in touch with him and we started kicking it. He was about to put together a new mixtape and liked what I did earlier with a Chester French project I had orchestrated and wanted to do something similar but with his flare. I, of course, agreed to be a part of it. That mixtape was titled “One Foot Out The Door” which was fitting because at this point with his fan base growing and popularity rising he, in fact, had one foot out the door.
Anyhow, he wanted me to be involved so I produced some stuff and talked some sh#t. That project got extremely positive reviews and Mike was on the verge of being a star. By the way, the sh#t talking I did on that mixtape was something else much like my line in “Ambiguous” that I was unsure of keeping but Mike loved it and in turn so did a lot of the listeners. One I heard back a lot was, “I don’t live in my truck anymore. Now trucks live with me.” Or commenting on how once I started having some success, a saleswomen sized me up one time in a store and assumed I was broke and said, “Would you like me to show you what’s on sale?” and I replied “How about you show me what’s NOT on sale?” Stupid but that’s how I was feeling at the moment.
