A couple of days ago I got the chance to talk to Detroit, Michigan’s very own producer David “DDS” Smith. DDS first started producing back in 2007 on what we now know as FL Studios. DDS has completed over 2000 instrumentals to date. In the summer of 2014 DDS finally hit gold, he found him self-producing one the hottest tracks, “Try Me” by Dej Loaf. 2 months after the collaboration between Smith and Loaf going viral, the pair locked in an RIAA Certified Gold single. After hitting gold, the single topped the charts making the #1 song on Urban Radio. The single gave DDS the foot into the industry that he needed.
Fast forward to 2018, you can find DDS producing music for multiple chart-topping artists. The self-acclaimed producer locked in on another single off Kash Doll’s latest project The Vault. When DDS isn’t locking in producing, you can catch him mentoring other up and coming producers such as his self through Youtube Channel. He created his channel to curate videos involving Reviews on Equipment, Vlogs, Beatmaking & Much more. He has managed to build a global following up to 23,000 subscribers.
He created his channel to show people its okay “To Shoot Your Shot” and get down. As long as you get back up & keep pushing you can do anything you want to. We closed the conversation with a piece of advice to the young ones out there, ” Do what makes you happy, You never know when it’s your time to go, Always Thank God & Keep Pushing”
