Halpern was born on December 26, in Brookline , Massachusetts. Growing up, he was a high level basketball player who was recruited by major division 1 basketball schools, ending up at Brown University where he played three years and was the captain for 1 year. Due to an illness, he changed his career, started DJing and fell in love with making music. Halpern and Hawley-Weld first met at Brown University in at an art gallery, where Hawley-Weld was performing and Halpern approached her, here they began writing and performing songs together. Sofi Tukker began DJing while sheltering at home due to the COVID outbreak and while it was not planned, they have continued every day, reaching performances on September 28, with no plans to stop. A social media-connected community of fans, known as the "Freak Fam", have even formed their own channels and have Zoom dance parties during the livestream. Paste Magazine described the band's release as "an insatiable dance collection of jungle-pop songs with many well-executed nods towards Brazilian instruments, poets and to the national language, Portuguese".

Next year we are getting married but I already see a tough life ahead of me. I had no idea how hard it could get. I let her know it's not healthy to expect someone else to change - we can only control ourselves and not others.
Not every LDS person does, unfortunately. It may not seem like a big deal now, but eventually it will probably surface that at best, the church impacts and influences her behavior in almost every area, at worst, it dictates it. It also means that you have to give her something particular to do.
