Known as co-founder and keyboard player of Irie Maffa, JumoDaddy has become one of the most successful electronic music producers inHungaryin the last couple of years. He has been performing at the greatest venues of the electronical music and party scene in Hungary for ten years and produced several records. 
Born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1982, JumoDaddy spent most of his childhood in music schools and his father’s sound studio, where he became acquainted with thechanging analog studio techniques early on. At the age of 20 JumoDaddy joined Hungary's first and finest reggaedancehallsoundsystem, Love Alliance. In those days he wasmainly influenced by the early Freestylers, Bad Company,Ed Rush & Optical, Grooverider and Goldie. Right after joining the DJ group, he started tocollect reggae/dancehall records and DJ regularly inthe best Hungarian music clubs, which was thebeginning of his career as JumoDaddy.
In 2003, he released his debut song with Sena Dagadu (aka SENA) and Márton Élő (aka Dermot aka ELO) called“Hey” as part of Sena Dagadu's debut album titled "First One". Further cooperation with Élő led to the idea of a liveband, which they finally co-founded in 2005 as Irie Maffia. In 2007, they released their first album, “Fel A Kezekkel!” featuring the domestic hit, “Hands In The Air”. He is credited for composing the majority of the later Irie Maffiaalbums as well ("What's My Name" in 2009 and "NagyonJóLesz" in 2013). He is the primary keyboard player in live andstudio performances, furthermore he demonstrated his top-notch studio skills during mixing and mastering the IrieMaffia records.
In 2008, JumoDaddy started a weekly club night at one of Budapest's most popular underground clubs, Corvintető with his collaborator, Márton Élő, and the duo was accompanied by Mc Columbo, one of the lead vocalists of Irie Maffia. During the years, they had guests like South Rakkas Crew, IrieItes Soundsystem, General Levy, Top Cat, Tenor Fly, Lutan Fyah, Baby Cham, Beenie Man and Major Lazer. Meanwhile, JumoDaddy's musical interest shifted from the traditional dancehall genre to modern bassmusic. Moreover, the music he played was always enriched by such earlier influences as jungle and breakbeat, and thiscomplexity in terms of influences made him one of the most versatile DJs of the Hungarian nightlife.
In 2012, he teamed up with Wondawulf to create the most progressive bass music party in Budapest, the Moombah! transformed into Univercity (UVCT) in 2013. In the same year, Simplify Recordings released the first JumoDaddy EP entitled "Cobra Dance/Bass InYourFace". After releasing a free EP "Gangsters' Funeral/All Night Long" online, he won the official Zomboy feat.Lady Chann - Here To Stay Beatport Remix Contest and was awarded an opportunity to release the remix at NoTomorrow Recordings. In 2013, JumoDaddy made several remixes for artists such as Krafty Kuts, Kairo Kingdom and theHungarian band, Brains, which all landed on the Beatport top 10 glitch-hop charts. 
JumoDaddy made his latest and mostsignificant remix for David Heartbreak, which was released as a free download on the OWSLA/Nest blog.In 2014, he released his two part apocalyptic Four Horses EP at Play Me Records. The track called BlackHorse held its position in the Beatport Glitch Hop top ten chart for months and Skrillex had been playing the track formore than three months. The American club scene is not unknown for him as he has performed at the SXSW Festival in Austin and also inthe Studio at Webster Hall. Jumodaddy has just finished his recent EP, and has just launched his radio DJ mix series at theHungarian National Radio (MR2).
