Hailed as “ambitious, forward-thinking, and undeniably talented” (XLR8R), Brooklyn-based producer Shakeyface is someone “you’ll want to keep tabs on” (URB). Shakeyface creates a unique blend of leftfield electronics and hip-hop with an indie-rock sensibility, his songs are “adventurous soundscapes” with “thick, dirty beats” (All Music).
Abstract hip-hop producer Shakeyface mashes together numerous styles and sounds together for his ecclectic recordings and also DJs in the New York area. Born Doug Smiley, Shakeyface began his musical career in an indie band before attending Berklee School of Music in Boston. There he developed a passion for sampling and began crafting adventurous soundscapes. He subsequently dropped out of Berklee and headed to Brooklyn, where he submersed himself in hip-hop culture. He became the resident DJ at Halcyon and signed to the Quatermass label, which released his debut EP, Puddle Jumping During a Monsoon, in 2002. ~ Jason Birchmeier
