Respect - Joaquin ‘Joe’ Claussell


Joe Claussell

A modern-day renaissance man, this New York-based producer, remixer and dj is also a prolific business man; one who approaches all his projects with sincerity and intensity, qualities he infuses into everything he touches. In his latest role as owner of Sacred Rhythm Music, he intends to guide the world to a new way of looking at and listening to music.

Born into a large musical family, and raised in Park Slope, Brooklyn, Joe Claussell quickly learned the positive and uplifting affect music had on his life. Having been surrounded on all sides by a diverse combination of music from rock, soul, pop, African, and Latin, Joe started to contribute his own musical inspiration at his Friday night jam sessions at the illustrious vinyl shop Dance Tracks. After later becoming part owner, Joe continued to travel the world in search of the spirituality in music as well as continuing to play international venues. In 1996, joining NY DJ’s Francois K and Danny Krivit, Joe became a part of the most influential underground party of the late 90’s, Body & Soul, contributing with his innate ability to broadcast his passion from the first to the last person on the dance floor.
Recognizing the lack of soulful dance music in the market by his experience on Dance Tracks, Joe Claussell created Spiritual Life Music in early 1998. Utilizing the artist's strength, taping into their soul and “making music around it" has been Joe’s philosophy and apparent key to success. Music created for, by and about the soul is a long forgotten pastime of current record conglomerates. Explore this spiritual experimentation, in which the historical, physical, and spiritual elements guide us to a new level of awareness. Listen to the music; you may be surprised at how familiar this sound is, the sound of life.
