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.
“DNAEBEATS is a SF-centered artist who splices multiple genres into a mutant sound all his own. His much heralded mix tape There’s a Wormhole in my Bathroom is aptly-titled and must-download. As an accomplished hip hop beat maker (working with the likes of Gift of Gab) and a producer in his own right, DNAE seamlessly weaves together hyphy, dubstep, electro and experimental into a sonic fabric that sounds like it was teleported through a tear in the time-space continuum.”
