A passionate lifetime musician with classical training, NYC based DJ JCLEF isn’t just a DJ, he’s a sound. JCLEF got his humble nightlife start in 2013 at a drag show in Albany NY at Tony’s Terrace, with the one and only Chardonnay LaTease.
In addition to drag shows, JCLEF loves spinning parties of all kinds – from live music, performer based events, to creating a full fantasy club experience. He was voted Best DJ in NYC at the GLAM (NYC Nightlife) Awards 2018 & 2019.
As an openly gay trans man, JCLEF believes in being visible for those who can’t be. His passion for music is only matched by his drive to bring people together. He works to continue to create safe spaces, build community, and stands in solidarity with #BlackLivesMatter.
