Founder of the Original Hip-Hop collective, DJ Key is one of the pioneers of the Moroccan Hip-Hop movement. For over a decade, DJ Key has been the leading Hip-Hop DJ in Morocco, turning out dozens of mixtapes, organizing concerts and workshops across the country, and bringing true Hip-Hop into the nightclubs. His unique blend of Old & New School rap and his world-class mixing skills have earned him the title of #1 DJ in Morocco, but it is his passion for Moroccan Hip-Hop that made him a central figure in the Moroccan mvoement. He has produced several hit mixtapes and regularly tours with H-Kayne and other leading Moroccan groups. He has also recently ventured into music videos, directing 2 videos from H-Kayne’s last album, and started his own production company and DJing school, called Funky Noise Entertainment.
