San Francisco-based producer, composer, performer and blap pioneer DNAEBEATS (pronounced D.N.A.) creates soundscapes that travel through genre after genre. His pounding style of new Dubstep, Grime and electronic Hip hop make his records stand out in the ears of the listeners.
After years of childhood classical performances around the 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 deals with Twenty Four Seven Records in Sweden,a deal with M.F. Grimm's Manhattan-based label, Day By Day Entertainment & a Deal with Brooklyn's Sound - Ink Records.

Grimm, Gift Of Gab, Lateef The Truthspeaker, The Shapeshifters, Ellay Khule of Project Blowed, The Visionaries, Z-Man, Azeem, & The Team.

"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." -San Francisco Examiner
