Based in North Park, Chill Clinton features guitarist/producer Dan Rabb and DJ Mark Morante, who met in the dorms at SDSU in 1998. After being in several separate San Diego bands over the years, they formed Chill Clinton in March, 2010.

“We were playing our first show at the Belly Up and, during the set, I was really getting into it, jumping around really trying to amp up the crowd,” recalls Morante. “Well, I got into it a little too much and didn't realize I kicked our guitarists cable out in the middle of his solo. He was still mad at me a couple years later.”

Drummer Sir Patrick Knightly joined in early 2011, and MC Touch of CAS joined in 2013. The band mixes electronics with live instrumentation, taking inspiration from dub, hip-hop, rock, and dancehall influences. Their full-length Lift and Cut was released in 2012.
