HYPE is an American DJ personality based in Dubai with a regional & international influential footprint across the MENA and USA.
This DJ is also a MC with the ability to rock the mic harder than anyone you’ve ever seen or heard.
His musical signature style includes a mix of Hip-Hop, Soul, Funk, House Remixes, Afrobeats & Pop.
This high-energy icon known as the ‘life of the party!’ and for this reason has been invited to perform on tour with E-40, hosted Jay Sean, Fabulous & has been a part of festivals such as Mother of the Nation in Abu Dhabi & Red Bull Air Race.
Ex-resident DJ at Media One Hotel in 2021-2022, HYPE also performs at some of the hottest urban events in town.
Not limiting his career, he has gone into acting and event production as well which has engaged a niche audience on social media.
One of his most exciting projects, which he is very proud of, is “Hype Night” started as the UAE’s FIRST strictly Hip Hop open mic night & has evolved into a complete event in the second season with fun activities like a thrift pop up market, graffiti workshop, and a spoken word open mic. It was successful organized during COVID pandemic in 2021 & 2022, while taking all the necessary precautions of following the protocols set by NCEMA & DTCM.
