Sephi Hakubi is a progressive DJ, cosplayer and multi-media producer who has a big focus in the anime fandom community and currently runs Hau5 of Hakubi Productions, LLC as chief executive officer. Born in northern New Jersey, raised in south Florida and hopping around the world from his adventures with the Air Force, Sephi used his experiences in many of his interactions to become what he’s described today as a “multi-media culture masher.” Sephi has been an anime fan for nearly his entire life, but established the correlation between anime and electronic music during his high school years (2000-2004).
His early years in the Air Force granted him the experiences of anime fandom when he attended his first convention in Hawaii, Kawaii Kon 2006. It was then he wanted to become involved in the anime scene and cosplayed/modeled full time while performing as a Progressive House/Trance/Hardcore DJ. The next several years brought him good fortune as his efforts in electronic music gained the attention of several figures in the anime and rave scene, performing for the masses at FAN:dom Con, San Japan and the SukoshiCon network as well as festivals like Equinox and the Tonyc Summer Jam.
Sephi also ran his own indie multi-media fan label called Sushicrowd Entertainment and supported San Antonio-based rave label, Black Bunny Productions. However, realizing new success through imagination and vision with his anime and rave collegues, the heroic Anime and EDM (AnimEDM) icon rebranded Sushicowd to become Hau5 of Hakubi Productions, LLC, a newly refined entertainment promotion label. His biggest influences in EDM include “Totally” Patrick Pfeffer, Judge Jules, Paul van Dyk, Myon & Shane 54, Darude, Tiesto, DJ Encore, Iio, Armin van Buuren, Gabriel & Dresden, Above & Beyond and many female Trance vocalists like JES, Veela, Amba Shepherd, Emma Hewitt, Christina Novelli, Plumb and Sarah Howells, among others.

Sephi will also be headlining the dance at CTC Geekfest the night prior at Mayborn Science Theater where he will be performing AnimEDM (Hardcore, Hard Dance, J-core). Check out the full event at http://
