When it comes down to rocking parties DJ Epps is definitely the man to call. Born Yves Felix, a Haitian-American, was born and raised in Manhattan, New York, where during his early years found his passion to become a DJ.
Epps and his mother moved to Florida during his teenage years and once in Miami, Epps found his way to the streets and quickly became apart of Miami’s Hip-Hop culture. One day walking along South Beach, with crates in hand and looking for a chance, Epps met promoter Big Rich, owner of The Sugar Shack, leading to his first opportunity and soon after Epps began playing at his parties every week. Then along comes promoter Chris Pachello, owner of the legendary Fat Black Pussy Cat at Liquids, gave Epps his first big club gig so now he’s mingling every night with super celebrities like Harrison Ford, Lil Kim, Michael Jordan just to name a few.
DJ Epps exploded onto Miami’s Hip-Hop scene well over 10 years ago at The Sugar Shack where he also met the club’s door man, 210 Jack. The two became inseparable friends after working the club every week, and soon after Big Rich moved away from the promoting scene, he passed along his legacy to both of them so they merged to form their own company called Nightbreederz Entertainment. Through this company, Jack began heavy promotions and very soon began establishing gigs all around the country, like B.E.T.’s Rap City with Big Tigger or The Roof, which is a Hip-Hop selection show airing on MUN2. So not only does DJ Epps flip records, but he host video mix shows, keep you rocking in the car to his radio mixes or host mixtapes for his celebrity friends, he’s also the co-founder and co-owner of a successful marketing and promotions company called Nightbreederz Marketing and Promotions.
DJ Epps have been able to secure different opportunities throughout the entertainment community, such as Epps having the position with G-Unit as a representative supporting all there up and coming albums & events.
