Nicholas Edem Coffie (born 1999), commonly known as Yung D3MZ is a record producer, sound designer, songwriter, and audio engineer from Tema, Ghana. He is affiliated with the Ground Up Chale platform, which he works extensively with.
Coffie was raised in Community 5, Tema. As a child, he was an avid music lover and spent time listening to many of his father’s CDs and cassettes, to which he gained a unique musical sense. His family moved to Uganda when he was 8, and in his new school he began to take music lessons and taught himself how to play guitar.
In 2012, Coffie moved again to Zambia, then back to Ghana a year later to enroll into Tema International school. He joined a band formed by young prodigies and his love for arranged music heightened. After watching videos of other producers such as Killbeatz, he decided to try producing in late 2016 from his high school dorm. Coffie was discovered by Ground Up in 2018, and has since been affiliated with the likes of Kwesi Arthur, Herman
$uede, Almighty Trei, Twitch, Kofi Mole, Quamina Mp, and Kwamz & Flava.
Coffie is known for his unique production style, which features playful melodies and tones alongside bouncy African and hip hop drums. His love for R&B inspires his alté/alternative sound. He is also known for his speed, versatility, and ability to fuse genres. He states that his musical mind is “a combination of all the cultures his been immersed with.” He is an artist’s producer, and he is very hands-on and collaborative.
