Deejay Supe, known professionally as DJ Supe, is an American DJ and record producer born in Sacramento, CA. He produces several artists close to his place of birth to maintain a feeling of home while creating. He is known as an influential figure in the Sacramento music scene as a club/radio DJ, music store owner and studio producer/engineer.
After graduating high school in 1994, DJ Supe and his buddies formed a Hip-Hop group called Livestock where he produced songs and performed on stage DJ duties. The notoriety gained from that led to then Sacramento-based on-air personality Ibrahim Ebro Darden to allow Supe to cover mixing duties on his Flava Show program on KSFM 102.5 FM (Sacramento, CA) The taste of being on a commercial radio station was intoxicating. Around 1998, Ebro again noticed Supes talents and called on him to join KBMB 103.5 FM, a new station Ebro had joined as a programmer.
During the early 2000s, DJ Supe did everything from open a record store, travel the world as a DJ on Norwegian Cruise Lines, and produced for a handful of artists.
Currently, DJ Supe owns a recording studio in Sacramento where he records, mixes and masters various projects. He has released music that is available on all major digital stores and streaming services.

I have recently transitioned to the iPad Pro 2018. Production apps I like include iMaschine and Neo-Soul Keys. Effects I like are Lo-Fly Dirt and Turnado. For deejaying I use Algoriddim Djay. Hardware is still part of my ecosystem. My production setup includes my trusty iMac with an upgraded solid state drive, Maschine 2 and a Behringer X18 digital mixer. I also have my analog DJ setup with a Numark mixer and 2 Technic 1200 MKII turntables. My recording console is a Presonus StudioLive 32.4.2 AI running off of a Mac Mini with an upgraded solid state drive. When I am out doing mobile gigs, I use a Pioneer DDJ SB3 controller. When I do festivals and concerts I use a Roland DJ-808 controller. I run a Mackie DLM PA system for events and rentals.
