It’s 12:45am and all I want to do is listen to music; Mac Miller to be specific. I guess that kinda makes sense since i love music and Mac is a huge inspiration to me. I really want to get myself together and start doing bigger things with this music stuff. I know that the things I see myself doing will take an immense amount of time and effort, but it seems like it will all be worth it in the end. I know I’ll have to overcome some fears that I’ve had since I was little, but I’ll make it.
The tough thing about all this is the money. I want/need so much equipment that I cant afford and I don’t know what to do to make more money. Right now I’m just leasing beats off soundclick.com, which has done me a good deal of justice, but it feels like some sort of a cop-out to me. My plan for right now is to make songs for anyone who wants one (to be used as a theme song or whatever) and spread the DK word around that way. When I go back up to Cortland and reunite with my man Ryan Walker and all the other ODDJobs, I have a feeling that bigger things are going to happen. I look forward to getting back up on stage and continuing to produce high quality music for the world’s ears.
As for right now though, I’ve got a promotional thing going on called EnjoyAugust. EnjoyAugust is a celebration of my birthday on the 18th and the end of the summer. During this event I will be releasing 5 new songs that haven’t been released yet, all carrying their own message. EnjoyAugust should be a big kickstart for me before I go back to school in late August. Everyone check out the new stuff, I’ll be posting it all here!

Hey, so i entered a contest on collegeofmusic.com by recording a song to a beat that they made specifically for the contest. There are 3 other kids who entered the contest as well, but frankly I could care less about those kids. Point is, VOTE FOR ME!! You can vote once a day until July 8th and I would really appreciate it if you guys would do just that. The prize is pretty cool, its a bunch of mixtape gear that would be really useful for my first mixtape. Thanks for the support everyonee! VOTE HERE!
Currently my basement is being turned into a studio. What I can do with this talent is starting to become a reality to me as this room comes together (and money gets spent). I was able to get all my equipment back up and running tonight and I tested it out with a few freestyles that I’m actually thinking about releasing … even though they aren’t the best; I was just having some fun with it. I know I’ve been saying this over and over but I swear I’m going to get back into this blogging business soon, starting with a picture of my new studio as soon as some more of the construction is done. I’ll be posting pictures and music weekly for the most part and I want to blog every day, but we’ll see how that works out. For now, stay up on my old and my new stuff and download everythingggg off my soundcloud for $FREE.99!! I’m also on twitterr as you can see on the side of this page. I follow back anyone who follows me! Much love. Enjoy Music. bE ODD.
putting on my headphones and entering a whole new world of music
Well, earlier I dropped a new song, my remix to Somebody That I Used To Know by Gotye. I wasn’t surprised that it got a bunch of hits quickly because the original song is currently really big on the radio and in the iPods of people worldwide. That man is incredibly talented and I am honored to some degree to be on the same song as him, even though I didn’t actually work along side him. Anyway, I appreciate the support everyone, keep it comin and I’ll keep the music comin! Check out my music videos to Wake Up and Nikes On My Feet Remix and the new song Somebody I Used 2 Know and download anything you like on my soundcloud page for free! Thanks good people! Enjoy Music!
I know, I know, I’ve been slacking with this Tumblr business, but I do have some excuses. Recently I’ve been putting a lot of time and effort into my schoolwork as well as writing, recording and mixing. It’s getting crazy with finals all coming up, but I’m hoping that I’ll be able to focus on this a lot more once I go home for the summer. As far as the music stuff goes, I’ve been making some quality stuff recently, including my newest song “Wake Up.” Wake Up is really meant to tell everyone that I do what I love to do every day simply because I can and I want to. My next project was just finished also, but I haven’t released that track yet. It has the same vibe as Wake Up, with the title Movin Up. Movin Up serves to tell people what stage of my life I’m in right now. Right now I’m “searching for my DK” as someone once said to me. In other words, with every lyric I write, song I record, and idea I have, I’m keeping an open mind and I’m trying to find what is going to make me different from everyone else in this crazy music industry. After my last 2 performances I have really found that music is a huge passion of mine and I find it hard to see my “future DK” not doing music stuff. I’m looking for ways to take this thing that was once a hobby of mine to the next level and try to get my name out there a little more. Studio time, original beats, free CDs, online mixtapes, new equipment? All of the above, and more. This summer is going to be a great one if I use my time effectively and make sure I have my priorities straight. As for right now, enjoy good music and be ODD.
