RuffTown Records signed sound engineer, Danny Beatz has revealed what inspired him to start producing his own beats.
According to him, he never learnt sound engineering from anyone or from any school but he is self-taught.
He however revealed that, music has always been his passion and he decided to follow it years ago. As a result, he went to a studio to have his song recorded. But the man in charge of the studio ended up speaking to him harshly as if he was a kid. This, he explained got him very pissed and he went home.
However, as determined as he was, he told himself he could do it if only he will put his mind to it. He later bought for himself a software online and started producing his own books after learning to do so from some books he downloaded.
“I have passion for music and anything related to it and wanted to be an artiste, so somewhere is 2008, I went to one studio to be recorded and I did not like the way the guy spoke to me.
“He spoke to me as if I was a kid, with so much disrespect. It was too negative for me so I told myself; if I put my mind to it, I can do this on my own. I went home, bought software online, downloaded books, started playing with the software and that has been it. He recounted in an interview with Graphic Showbiz.
But just like many great men and women today, Danny revealed that he did not get it easy. According to him, his own people tried to discourage him but he set a timeline for himself and here he is today.
“I remember my people trying to discourage me and I told them they should give me five years and I will surprise them and here we are today,” he told Showbiz.
Although it is paying off, Danny Beatz says it could be better.
“It has though not as I would want but I think with hard work and God’s grace, I would be fine. I am more than focused to get to the top”, he added.
Danny also explained that being a music producer requires a lot of patience because it comes with many challenges.
“Though I have not experienced any act coming back to me to say the beat I produced is not a good one, there are some who think they know it all and feel that what they want is the best and in situations like that, I try to speak my mind and let them know what is right. Some will understand immediately but for others, it takes time.”
Having dropped out of school, Danny Beatz plans to go back to school soon. But for now, he is working as hard as he can to leave his mark.
“It takes extra hard work, dedication and prayer to get to the top and when you do, never forget where you came from.
“To my management, I want to thank them for believing in me and not giving up. God bless them and my fans should watch out for my new song”, he added.
Danny Beatz, real name Daniel Owusu Agyapong is currently out with a new single ‘Love Juju.’
