Estevan “HYPEITUP” Tellez was born on October 5, 1992 in Montebello, California. Raised on the streets of East LA, he has always been surrounded by music his whole life. As a kid, Estevan picked up many instruments quickly and would love playing at home.
At age 13, Estevan began listening to 90s electronic music (i.e. Daft Punk, Moby, Fatboy Slim etc.) As he came across current EDM made by well-known producers like Afrojack, Skrillex, David Guetta and Excision, Estevan decided to join the hype and fell in love with music production.
Estevan found the brand HYPEITUP as a unique name to represent himself and his music. After playing a few clubs and festivals his name quickly got recognized by many people in the local dance music community. He has played alongside and been supported by Carnage, NGHTMRE, 12th Planet, Brillz, Loudpvck, Monxx and many more.
Later down the road, after making various edits of well-known tunes, he stumbled across a new genre of Electronic Music which was Dubstep / Festival Trap. That changed his style and influenced the sound that he creates now.
HYPEITUP had become so passionate about electronic dance music that he extended his knowledge and learned about creating his own sound and producing his own songs.
Since he decided to join the hype, his skills and music have improved tremendously. In August of 2011, he signed to the label “Three Six Records” and for the first time his music got sold on various platforms such as Beatport, iTunes, etc.
In October 2018, Estevan got the chance to perform at Insomniac’s Escape Psycho Circus event in San Bernardino.
His most recent accomplishment in the industry was when his biggest dream became a reality and he played at the biggest festival in the country, Insomniac’s Electric Daisy Carnaval in Las Vegas, Nevada.
He is currently traveling the US and playing festivals through his sponsorship and partnership with Corona Electric Beach.
