Biography

Häzel (born Yannick Beaucaine in 1983) is a multi faceted music producer, best known for his hip hop, soul works. His father’s blood originated from a native Brazilian tribe called the Carajas, while his mother comes from a peaceful region in France.
Coming from a culturally diverse and deeply rooted music family, becoming a music producer of varied taste was an inevitable path for Häzel. His father was a well known radio host in the city of Brasilia back in the 80′s. It was there where Häzel discovered his love for music. Being surrounded by his dad’s massive vinyl collection enabled Häzel to appreciate the classics, but it wasn’t until he first heard the works for the late James “Dilla” Yancey, where he knew his musical destiny was set.
Häzel spent countless hours practicing with his friend’s gear trying to perfect this J dilla sound. He saved up enough money to finally buy his own MPC 3000 only to have it stolen shortly after. Discouraged, but not broken, this minor setback forced Häzel to “get with the times”, as he now started to work on a computer based set up, which he found more convenient to work with.
The robbery of Häzel’s MPC, along with his discovery of the computer could quite possibly be the two best things to have happened to him. Through the wonders of social networking, Häzel started to build relationships with Drake, Onra, Slakah the Beatchild, Ebrahim and Ayah, to name a few, who are all now part of Häzel’s extensive catalogue. Now after working on so many other people’s projects, Häzel is now set to release his very own solo project called Playground in the spring of 2011.
