As a composer, DJ, producer and creative director, Dhundee is a man of many hats—and he wears them all well.

Born in Baltimore, the 10-year Brooklyn resident has been honing his musical skills since age 7 when he took up drums and trombone. Today Dhundee is steadily making his mark across many facets of the music industry.

In 2009 Dhundee independently released his debut album, Take Flight. The highly anticipated album, which he wrote and produced, features Dego of 4Hero, Waajeed of PPP & Bling47, Cecilia Stalin, Probe DMS, Kissey Asplund, and Grammy-winner Maya Azucena. He also has a remix of “Tomorrow,” a track by the recently retired producer Domu. Take Flight is now finding its wings as Dhundee tours and spreads the word worldwide through events, live shows and a podcast that garners more than 10,000 downloads per month.

Dhundee has produced mixes or compilations for Okayplayer, Flavorpill, Camper, MTV and many others. He has also worked as an instructor for Dubspot and he is a contributor and East Coast rep for FWD.dj , a leading future music site that specializes in dance, minimal techno and house music.

As a promoter, Dhundee has thrown some of NYC’s best parties including Gravity, BrookynBounce and Haven, a new bimonthly loft bash featuring the best DJs and musicians from around the globe. Past Haven guests include Simbad (Uk/Fr), Dego (Uk/4Hero) and Electric Wire Hustle (Nz/bbe records).

As a DJ, Dhundee serves up the sounds with his signature genre-bending style. From the underground loft parties in NYC where he rocks dubstep, techno and dance gems, to Berlin’s underground hip-hop and house parties, he knows how to move a crowd. Dhundee has also appeared in Munich, St. Thomas, San Fran, Philly, Miami, Chicago, LA and London. He has shared the decks and the stage with many talented artists and DJ’s, including ?uestlove, Miguel Migs, Mr. Scruff, Talib Kweli, The Roots, Bajah and the Dry Eye Crew, John Legend, Grandmaster Flash, Simbad, Daz I Kue, Dego, Rich Medina, Pete Rock, Nice and Smooth, J. Period and many more.

Most recently, Dhundee released “Shoshot” on Bastard Jazz. Melding rave stabs with pondering jazz keys with heavy B-more to Brooklyn beats, the track has made an impact with the world’s top tastemakers. This is a heavy-hitter for the dance floor. Please see the music production page for more information.

On top of DJing, Dhundee is the CEO and creative director of Sugarcuts Inc. Through Sugarcuts, he’s written and produced music for more than 50 commercials for clients such as Disney, MTV, VH-1 and Comedy Central.
