Biography:
Christian Lalinde, better known as Sephi Hakubi in entertainment media, is a progressive DJ, cosplayer and multi-media producer who has a big focus in the Anime Fandom and Electronic Dance Music communities and is the current head of his in-house entertainment production label, Hau5 of Hakubi (formerly Hau5 of Hakubi Productions, LLC and Sushicrowd Entertainment); in addition, Sephi currently works for nightlife entertainment group EBE Productions, and Japanese Dance Radio station ToukuFM as their resident DJ and is currently signed with music label Appointed Recordings LLC.

Born in Northern New Jersey, raised in South Florida and hopping around the world from his adventures with the Air Force, Sephi used his experiences in many of his interactions to become what he's described today as a "multi-media culture masher." Sephi has been an anime fan for nearly his entire life, but established the correlation between anime and electronic music during his high school years (2000-2004). It was also during those years that Sephi has picked up his EDM musical influences living in his hometown of Coral Springs while listening to Miami Dance station, Party 93.1. His early years in the Air Force granted him the experiences of anime fandom when he attended his first convention in Hawaii, Kawaii Kon 2006. It was then he wanted to become involved in the anime scene and cosplayed/modeled full time while performing as a Progressive House/Trance/Hardcore DJ. The next several years brought him good fortune as his efforts in electronic music gained the attention of se veral figures in the anime and rave scene, performing for the masses at FAN:dom Con, San Japan and the SukoshiCon network as well as festivals like Equinox, Unite As One Beach Clean Up, and Tonyc Summer Jam.

Sephi also ran his own indie multi-media fan label called Sushicrowd Entertainment and supported San Antonio-based rave label, Black Bunny Productions. However, realizing new success through imagination and vision with his anime and rave collegues, the heroic Anime and EDM (AnimEDM) icon rebranded Sushicowd to become Hau5 of Hakubi Productions and managed it with his wife Laura "Ame Hakubi" Lalinde. Sephi is now partnered with EBE Productions and is one of the prime talents of San Antonio, handpicked to play at the Alamo City's major nightclubs and fandom events. His biggest influences in EDM include "Totally" Patrick Pfeffer, Judge Jules, Paul van Dyk, Myon & Shane 54, Darude, Tiesto, DJ Encore, Iio, Armin van Buuren, Gabriel & Dresden, Above & Beyond and many female Trance vocalists like JES, Veela, Amba Shepherd, Emma Hewitt, Christina Novelli, Plumb and Sarah Howells, among others.
