Highlight – DaBoyDame
Hidden Beats recently had the chance to chat with producer/songwriter/DJ/baker/All-Around Awesome Guy DaBoyDame ahead of his release of “Feelings” for Motown Records, featuring EST Gee and the icon Rick Ross. To celebrate DaBoyDame’s latest single, here are some highlights of our chat, and what we can hope to see from this multi-talented artist.
DaBoyDame has spent nearly a decade in music, having started out as an intern at 106 KMEL in the Bay Area, where he learned the ins and outs of the music industry, and built up his work ethic and industry connections. Cutting his teeth in such a diverse area, he combined the shared life experiences of his community with his love of creating emotional attachments with music to drive his passion for forging a career in the music industry.
In a statement that, while undeniably true will also surely please his boss (lol), one of DaBoyDame’s biggest influences in music is Yo Gotti. Being able to watch Yo Gotti’s ascension from rapper to superstar, to CEO and icon, was proof to DaBoyDame that being a DJ is more than just someone spinning a record. Yo Gotti proved that you can take the passion and love of music and DJing, and make it ART… make it something that connects with a swath of people from a multitude of backgrounds, and use those talents and emotions to connect with people from such a wide variety of backgrounds.
