DJ Signify is an underground hip hop producer from Brooklyn, New York.


DJ Signify's first album Sleep No More, featuring collaborations with Sage Francis and Buck 65, was described as "hip-hop at its darkest and most chilling"[1] and earned him accolades as a "master beatsmith."[2] His second album Of Cities was similarly described as "dense, bleak instrumental hip-hop," reminiscent of Burial's Untrue and Tricky's Maxinquaye.[3]
