With his real name Tony Mahotière, Tony Mix Seet Yah was born on 13 February 1983 in Port-au-Prince. From an early age he always had a great passion for music. He liked listening to dancehall, hip hop. It was only in 2005 that Tony Mix really started his DJ career to build this great empire that he started today and is working harder to realize it as he had always imagined.
Being a DJ is no small matter, Tony knew it from the beginning. He hosted parties at the beachside club Bling 18 in the neighborhood where he spent his childhood. In those evenings Tony knew to impose itself by extending the small genius of the mix that exists in him. In 2005, he joined the staff of Sound Design to become the main DJ. He spent about three years with this staff doing a lot of exploits because he really assured during all these performances.
In 2008 Tony Mix left the staff of Sound Design to create his own group called Tony Mix Seet Yah and is currently the top DJ in Haiti. Everywhere you go you see Tony's posters, he ensures too that's why he has a lot of fans. Tony Mix is not just a DJ, he's also a singer. He did not just mix only, which is why he composed his first hit "Anba Dekonb" (2010) which was at the time an unparalleled success.
Tony Mix is a DJ of great personality, he often encourages young people to orient them towards the road of success. He encourages them to believe in education because it is a weapon of renown and one can do everything with it. Not taking the path of education according to Tony is not often a bad choice but in terms of proprotion failure is less likely when you take that path there.
DJ Super Duke began his illustrious career for noble reasons. “I did it at first for the girls,” he says, “and I love music.” His love of girls and music has made the 22 year-old turntable master the premier disc jockey for the Boston area. Ask anyone. Boston’s biggest entertainment complex, The Palace, the Bahamas Beach Club, Jay-Z, Wyclef and Spragga Benz all call on Super Duke to get the dancefloor jumping with his unique mix of hip-hop, R&B, dancehall, roots reggae and salsa. “I’m versatile and wicked n’ wild—I can play for everybody and anybody,” says Duke. “I can be playing a hip-hop tune then mix in a [Haitian] compas or a some old school shit.” And it gets the crowd grooving. Every time.
Born Jean Carducci Chery in Haiti, Super Duke was immersed in music as far back as he can remember. “My family functions always had loud compas music playing,” he says. “My father had a wide collection of vinyls and he played them all the time. As soon as I was old enough, I was going to the bals (live shows).” Duke grew up listening mostly to the guitar-driven compas coming out of his homeland. Soon its live instrumentation drove him to branch out to the merengue coming from right next door in the Dominican Republic and the reggae sounds floating in from the neighboring Caribbean islands.
It wasn’t until Duke came to New York that Yankee music got a hold of his ears. “My earliest experience with hip-hop was when I went to Hollis, Queens back in ’84,” he remembers. “My cousin was a DJ and he had records by Run-DMC and LL Cool J, who lived up the street.” It was also in NY that Duke first learned how to rock parties. Well, kinda, sorta. “Back then, I would just record things on the radio and TV and bring the audiocassettes and videotapes to back to Haiti,” he says. “But I used to rock little neighborhood parties with those tapes.”
When Duke returned to the States, his family settled down in Boston, then a town with very few outlets for urban culture. “Boston was dead as far as any black lifestyle and culture,” he recalls. “There was no hip-hop station, no local mixtape king, no DJ icon.” Not one to complain, Duke purchased his first wheels of steel: twin Gemini XL BD10’s. He was 15. “I rocked every house party, every living room in Boston,” he says.
