Music producer, Scratch musician, and DJ.
At the age of 6, DJ Happee knew he was destined to become involved with music when he scratched his mother’s “Air Supply” record after seeing a Run DMC music video on MTV.
Happee started entering the DJ Battle circuit to hone his skills and gain some exposure. During this time, he developed relationships with fellow DJs which would later help him catapult into the world of Skratch music (also referred to as Turntablism). When battling no longer satisfied his appetite, Happee later moved into music production and began using his knowledge of music, learned from being a DJ, to craft out songs for various musicians and DJs. His work was later featured on various releases and compilations, including Bomb “Return of the DJ, vol. 4,” Slam’s “Skratch Attack, vol. 2,” and also his 2001 debut album, “Cinematic Orchestra.”
