"I make music because I have so much to say" Words spoken by the artist known as DJ Hen Boogie. Speaking through the medium of music has been achieved by a select few of musical legends such as Coltrane, Miles, and Pharaoh Sanders. A modern day musical orator in his own right, Hen Boogie has been blessed to convey messages in the music. Be it on of his journey like DJ sets or production sound scapes, the listener is taken on an excursion like no other. DJ Hen Boogie born Henry Alexander III is an American born DJ and producer whose music encompasses and fuses a wide variety of genres including jazz, hip hop, electronic music, and soul. He is arguably best known for being a pioneer of the Bay Area independent hip hop movement of the early 1990s as the production mind behind the group The Dereliks whose release "A Turn on the Wheel is Worth More than a Record Deal" is a highly sought recording over 10 years after its initial release. DJ Hen Boogie all but vanished from the musical scene after the Dereliks release.

Very limited information exists as to why the musical departure but sources speculate it being primarily to focus on his new family which included a marriage and 3 children. In 2003 DJ Hen Boogie quietly returned to the musical scene with the release of "Change for the Bus Ride Home" on Sublevel Epidemic Records which contained a collection of unreleased Dereliks songs as well as remastered outtakes from their "lost" demo tapes. In 2005 he re focused on branding his own identity away from the Dereliks with the release of "Nobody Beats the Boog" on FemaleFun Records. This release solidified him as a major break record collector and force in hip hop documenting the countless rare records that many artists have previously sampled. Since his debut he has released two singles on the Low Self Discipline label featuring Jeni Fujita (of Fugees fame) and with Swedish born Kissey Asplund. He also has been credited for remixes with O.U.O. (formerly Zimbabwe Legit) featuring Asheru from Unspoken Heard, CL Smooth (of Pete Rock and CL Smooth fame), and Sadat X (of Brand Nubian fame).

He also has completed his debut album, A Happy Present from the Planet Earth, released May 2007 by the Eastern Developments subsidiary Easel Records. 2008 saw DJ Hen Boogie with additional production credits with spoken word artist Karen Gibson-Roc, a remix album titled "Time Off" with Chicago's Infinito 2017 on Nephew of Frank Records, remixes with Vanessa Daou, and production on Jeni Fujita's debut release "This Little Light of Mine..." on Low Self Discipline records.
