Grambling Produces Stars: Music Producer Deezy On Da Beat Spends Countless Hours In The Studio As He Chases His Dream
Spending more hours in the studio than he does at home GSU alum, music producer, artist and CEO of CutchaRadioUp, D’Andre Martin, better known as ‘Deezy On Da Beat’ is headed for leaving his mark on the music industry.
“Making music always makes me feel good, no matter what I’m going through”, the music producer said.
As time passed, his skills progressed, but he has been making music as an artist and producer for nearly a decade. You can listen to his older sound and hear growth when listening to mix-tapes ‘Lil Deezyana Vol. 2‘ and ‘All Da Way 100’.
While attending GSU he kept everybody hype with his song “I’m So GramFam Anthem” ft. Mr. Excitement (Martez Carter) and MC Fiji (Shelby Prout). The anthem became a Grambling State fan favorite with 11K views on YouTube.
The university’s students, supporters and community were playing the song everywhere! Alumna and GSU employee Stephanie Lindsey used it in one of the university’s football highlight videos which accumulated 60K views in two days.
The renowned GSU ‘World Famed Tiger Marching Band’ even learned and played it at one of the State Fair Classic games in Dallas, TX.
In addition to that Deezy was interviewed by KNOE’s Gwendolyn Ducre on the incredible stats and feedback the song that went viral.
After graduating from Grambling State University in 2016 he decided to further perfecting his craft and moved to Atlanta where he now studies music production at SAE Institute.
“I’m just a young man from Louisiana dream chasing in Atlanta,” he said.
On an average day you can find Deezy in the lab practicing his mixing skills on the analog board. Right now he uses FL Studio to produce beats and Protools to record.
During his time as a growing producer he got a chance to meet and talk to producer Drumma Boy Fresh and many more that he says gave him encouraging words that inspired him to become an even stronger artist and producer.
He’s been working on a ton of his own beats, but recently what has caught a lot of people’s attention is his samples of Jay-Z’s 4:44 and Family Feud instrumentals. (You can find the instrumentals on www.CutchaRadioUpBeatz.com)
It may be an understatement to say that many people enjoyed the Jay-Z – Family Feud instrumental remake because it got 6K views in just ONE day on YouTube.
He produced for upcoming artist MC FIJI who released a hit song in Louisiana that blew up instantly called “Fiji Made Me Do It”!
MC Fiji is a hot upcoming artist hailing from Northern Louisiana whose following has grown tremendously over the past years. Deezy was able to make history with him while “Made Me Do It” was MC Fiji’s first studio recorded single that has a catchy hook and dance that people were doing all over the state of Louisiana.
Deezy and CutchaRadioUp have also produced for mainstream and upcoming artists such as Meek Mill, Lil Snupe, Boosie Badazz, DJ Khaled, Trae Tha Truth, Master P, Curren$y, Yo Gotti, Mc Fiji, Popa Hussein, Mionne Destiny, Travis M, Dee Jackson, Lil Maine, Mr. Excitement and more!
“I’m just grinding for the day I can say I made it, I’m just working hard at something I love to do, but at the same time creating a name for myself”, he said.
Deezy On Da Beat is on the rise working on new beats daily and he is more than ready to collaborate with YOU! Who knows, we might see both of you on the Grammy’s before too long! So, what are you waiting for producers, artists, dancers, record labels, managers, HIT EM’ UP!
