DJ Muggs Facts

  1. He was adopted into a Norwegian family as a child. He has also been to Norway and loved it.
  2. DJ Muggs moved from New York to Los Angeles, California to live with his mom at the age of 14. He didn’t like it at 1st because he experienced a massive culture shock.
  3. He made his debut as a DJ for a hip hop group titled The 7A3. However, they only released 1 album in 1988 before they disbanded.
  4. DJ Muggs met the future members of Cypress Hill, B-Real, and Sen Dog, at his house in Bell Gardens, California, and they formed the group in 1988. They were named after a Cypress Street/Avenue everybody lived on. Percussionist Eric “Bobo” Correa joined in 1994.

  6. DJ Muggs prefers smoking weed with rolling papers over blunts.
  7. He was very reluctant to switch to digital music production but he never wanted to stop learning. For that reason, he took 6 months off to follow tutorials and practice making music digitally. Two things that surprised him the most were the availability of sample packs and side-chaining.
  8. DJ Muggs released 2 solo studio albums Dust (2003), and Bass for Your Face (2013).
  9. As a producer, his biggest influences were groups such as EPMD, Ultramagnetic MCs, Boogie Down Productions, Public Enemy, and people such as Marley Marl and Rick Rubin.

  11. DJ Muggs described his sound as “the tension you get when you enter a dark alley, see someone on the other end, and don’t know who it is”.
  12. For one of his projects, he went ahead and dedicated an entire month to learning everything he could about The Beatles.
  13. He drew inspiration from bands such as Ministry, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, and music genres such as 2-step, drum and bass, jungle, and “old Bristol sound”.
  14. One of his projects that he named The Experience was inspired by the painting The Persistence of Memory (1931) by Salvador Dali.
  15. He and his fellow Cypress Hills members were honored with their star on The Hollywood Walk Of Fame on April 18, 2019.
