Deffie is Mike Perry, a 20-year-old producer based in Los Angeles, California. Fortunate enough to have a computer lab filled with iMacs in middle school, he began to fiddle around with GarageBand, and thus began his love with music production. It wasn't until 2012 when he joined small Orange County based hip-hop group, Jet Pak Gang, when he saw what it was truly like to work in a group environment. Along the way, he met Daniel Tuazon, who helped mentor Deffie in the art of sound engineering. The group had small successes in 2011 opening for major artists (Tyga, Big Sean), but he parted ways before moving to Los Angeles in 2013. While digging his own foot into the Los Angeles beat scene, Deffie has been attending Santa Monica College, and is majoring in Media Studies with a focus in Music Industry. His music has been supported by the likes of labels such as SOULECTION, Team Supreme, Film Noir, ZenSupremacy, Kolossus Records, and artists such as ESTA, Andre Power, KRNE, and Josh Pan. His sound is influenced by Mr. Carmack, Flying Lotus, Kaytranada, and Pharrell Williams.
