DJ EFN “Miami’s mixtape king” – mixtapes since 93′
The president and creator of Crazy Hood Productions, DJ EFN, along side the Crazy Hood’s, began his attack on the local Miami hip-hop scene in ‘92-‘93.
Originally born in Los Angeles, California to Cuban parents, EFN moved at an early age to Miami and began making mix tapes in his local neighborhood of Kendall, later distributing throughout the entire Miami area. He quickly became a local favorite, selling hundreds of tapes.
Having established the popularity of Crazy Hood mix tapes in the local area, he began networking and acquired international distribution on Crazy Hood Mixtapes. Using Crazy Hood Mixtapes to bring notoriety to Crazy Hood Productions and everything it had to offer, EFN was labeled “Miami’s Mixtape King” from people within the industry.
Not only were artist’s music appearing on EFN’s mixtapes but artist themselves did original appearances, artist such as Outkast, Redman, Capone-N-Noreaga, Krs-One, Wu-Tang, Ja Rule, Sean Paul, Joe Budden, Lil Jon, David Banner and many more.
EFN is and has been determined to represent Miami’s underground hip-hop scene and has done this by having various radio shows on several pirate radio stations in Miami. Besides radio shows, clubs and mixtapes, EFN’s true passion is the development of artist signed to Crazy Hood Productions. Crazy Hood Productions is also home to Crazy Goods [urban clothing store], Crazy Hood Promotions [has worked with Tommy Boy, Slip-N-Slide, Loud Records, Epic, Def Jam, Ecko clothing and many other companies], and Crazy Sounds Record Pool.
Many publications and organizations have taken notice of EFN’s work and contributions to Miami’s hip-hop scene, such as The Source Magazine, B.E.T. [appeared on two episodes of Rap City], MTV “Mixtape Monday” on Direct Effect, “The Roof” on the Mun2 Network, In the House Magazine [Latin urban magazine], Justo’s Mixtape Awards [2k2 mixtape Awards “Best new mixtape DJ”], Hits Magazine, Urban Network, E-Mixshow magazine, Impact magazine, Ozone magazine and many others.
He was featured as a special feature player in the popular football video game Madden ‘02 by E.A. sports. EFN was also awarded “Best Mixtape DJ” at the first annual Miami Urban music awards in ‘03.
In ‘03 EFN became a member of the prestigious Tech.Nitions family and ‘04 he also became a member of THE CORE DJ’s that is an influential organization of movers and shakers within the urban community.
In the last year EFN has begun to organize his own DJ family called HOOD DJ’s. He is working with AOL on a mixtape-internet radio station and has begun marketing consulting for record labels. DJ EFN is the epitome of persistence and dedication not only in the world of the entertainment industry but more so to hip-hop the Culture!
