SELECTOR(s) OF THE WEEK: Bear Clarkson + Paris Aden + Azzouni

“Bear Clarkson aka “DJ Bear” is a producer, DJ, and culture curator based in Salt Lake City.DJ Bear has been involved in festivals headlining artists such as Rick Ross, YG, Mike Dimes, O.T Genesis, Travis Scott, DJ Drama, Austin Millz, DJ Mr. Rogers, and much more. His DJ sets are inspired by early 2000s hip hop and include R&B, dancehall, Afro beat, bass house, and Top 40. He first became interested in the hip hop scene in 2019, producing and working with artists from San Antonio, Texas. Coming from a HBCU, he felt that carrying culture and diversity that brings people together was a strong suit for him entering the DJing scene in Salt Lake City, Utah.

DJ Bear performs at festivals, alongside artists, and hosts parties to help the community grow. His dream is to become an international DJ providing sounds from his home state Texas while blending in different cultures and working with artists from different countries.


“When it comes to the core of Texas sound + culture, words like “experimental” and “out of the box” are not commonly used to describe the ‘Lone Star’ state. But, these are fitting for the electrifying creative Paris Aden, a renaissance woman who’s redefining the soundscape in the 3rd Coast.

From off-kilter production for the likes of Drake & 21 Savage, BbyMutha, Maxo Kream, Teezo Touchdown, and Babyxsosa to DJ’ing instant classic sets with Boiler Room, Carhartt WIP, NTS Radio, Rinse FM or planting organic leafs for her Huncho Leaf rolling wraps, Paris is an innovative entrepreneur who’s paving her own way as she “carries the legacy of DJ Screw.”

Bringing new talents together, Paris runs “First To The Future,” a concert series that’s booked TTBBY, Rizzoo Rizzoo, Teezo Touchdown, Nakel Smith, ZelooperZ, Bbymutha, YoJordyn, ZAE6IX, Septik, Jan Hvpe, and more. Innovating across music and culture, Paris leads as a prime curator of female creatives and well-deserved talents who are breaking ground in their respective lanes.



“Yaseen El Azzouni is a producer, writer, DJ, and community organizer from Cairo, Egypt. Azzouni has been involved in the Middle East’s electronic underground for nearly a decade, and is a founder of essential Cairo-based collective/club night ‘MOSHTRQ’.

His DJ sets and productions – scattered online under a myriad of aliases – blend inspirations from hip hop, dancehall, dub, grime, and jungle, with current explorations focused on leftfield club music.
