Dbait is a Hip-Hop recording artist and producer from Phoenix, Arizona.
He was born in San Diego County and spent his early years in San Luis Rio Colorado, Mexico, before his family settled in Arizona. Since his childhood, Dbait displayed a natural inclination toward music by growing a liking to playing drums, piano, and rapping at the age of 8. His interest in music was mostly influenced by his parents, who met each other at a music rehearsal in Mexico. Growing up with a jazz pianist for a father, a singer for a mother, and a mariachi for a grandfather, it is only natural that he would follow tradition.
In an attempt to showcase his musical abilities, Dbait entered the Guitar Center Drum Off in 2003, at the age of 13. One of the judges at this even was Brett Frederickson, Megadeth’s first drummer, who was impressed by young Dbait’s level of skill. Brett would later become his drum instructor. Shortly after, Dbait ventured into the art of beatmaking, a form of music production focused on the creation of Hip-Hop Instrumentals. Throughout the years Dbait continued to hone his craft in music by joining drumline, Jazz band and rapping at High School events while staying involved in his church music group.
In 2010, Dbait entered a series of competitions known as “Beat Battles” where he would showcase his music production for a panel of famous judges in hopes to make connections in the music industry. It was at these battles where he met and exchanged contact info with more of his idols including Willy Northpole, Needlz and Boi-1da.
Summer 2011, Dbait met The Rep (a well known Phoenix rapper who toured with P.O.D. and Guitarist Brian “Head” Welch from Korn), on a flight from Phoenix to New York. Dbait was headed to a Beat Battle in New York City and The Rep was flying to New York as part of his tour. After sharing a seat on the plane, Dbait exchanged contact info with The Rep. The pair reconnected in 2013 when The Rep appointed Dbait as one of the producers for his highly anticipated album 13th Floor.
After wrapping up production for 13th Floor, Dbait finished working on a solo project called Writer’s Block Mixtape. He spent the rest of 2015 obsessively writing and recording new songs which would later become part of his album titled Hypergraphia.
