Who is Yafei?

yafei-pic2Yafei has stamped his indelible imprint on the media scene for years. His productions and relationships in the music industry has helped create career-defining hits for artists such as Army of One and D.K. Respected beyond the genres of urban and hip hop music, Yafei, whose musical influences cross cultural lines, has also been sought by diverse superstars whose music similarly knows no boundaries, from super producer/performer Timbaland to UK’s RnB singer Craig David among many others.

Yafei’s work in the music industry has changed the way people look at the popular hip-hop scene in Dubai today, and he takes pride in his success at staying ahead of the curve with his originality and experimentation. Confident and charismatic, his goal is still to blow the listener’s mind and make them move to the beat. On the personal side, this artist/producer is a family man committed to spending time with his nephews and nieces and as serious about it as he is about his time in the studio.

“You can accomplish anything you put your mind to if you stay persistent and disciplined. I’ve worked with many artists locally and internationally and i’ve seen that those who focus on the reason behind their work, those are the ones who usually manage to get through”

Yafei is also the president and co-founder of Doka Records, a record label affiliated with a number of international major labels in north america and europe. Operating from downey, california. Doka records have expanded operations signing up artists from the middle east.

The label’s mission is to establish a new sound based on real talents producing heart-felt music. That explains the driven and dedicated Yafei, an innovator of sound who continues to set popular tastes while adventurously expanding his musical palette.
