San Francisco-based producer, composer and blap pioneer DNAEBEATS creates soundscapes that travel through genre after genre. After years of childhood classical performances around he world he knew that music was his calling. While on tour in Europe he first heard hip hop and electronic music from a tour manager who played him cassettes of Aphex Twin and Digable Planets. Both albums blew DNAE’s mind in completely different directions, and at that moment he knew his path in life was to make electronic music.
In high school a few years later, DNAE acquired a DR770 sequencer. After two years of nonstop button-pushing and perfecting his sound, he signed a deal with Twenty Four Seven Records in Sweden, and a deal with M.F. Grimm's Manhattan-based label, Day By Day Entertainment. In 2004, Eternal Autumn was released overseas and sold out in less than 2 months. Meanwhile, back in San Francisco, DNAE joined forces with the legendary Gift of Gab from Blackalicious, after producing songs for Pigeon John debut Quannum release and the fire was lit. DNAE went on to produce the majority of Gift Of Gab's Supreme Lyricism and was invited back to produce Gab's upcoming album Escape to Mars.
While DNAE is known for his work with MC’s as well as being Gift of Gab of Blackalicious touring dj, his live set has been turning major heads -- a mix of all-original blaps, ranging from bass-throbbing dubstep to mind-lifting boom-bap, done on the MPC2500 and the MPD32. DNAE has shared the stage with Sun Ra Arkestra, Bela Fleck, Zakir Hussian, The Glitch Mob, Wu-Tang Clan, Flying Lotus, Bassnectar, Kool Keith, Goapele, Hieroglyphics, Simple Plan, Living Legends, Biz Markie, The Breeders, Ice Cube, Lord Jazz, Daedelus, Talib Kweli, Exile, Daddy Kev, Jake One, Mochipet, Freestyle Fellowship, Hudson Mowhawke, Crown City Rockers, Rass Kass, Gaslamp Killer, Matt Pinfield, and has performed on stages in England, France, Hungary, Greece, Mexico ,Switzerland Russia, Canada, New York, L.A., Atlanta, Eugene, Aspen, Boulder, Bozeman, Asheville, Seattle, Portland, Birimingham, New Orleans, Austin, Lake Tahoe, San Francisco. + many others. His party "That's The Blap" has become a staple in the San Francisco Bay Area for its live beats.
