I'm Darrell Matas aka GRIMMS,
I'm a producer, engineer and rapper/emcee.
I got into audio engineering so I could record myself and have my songs not sound like crap.
I got into producing so I wouldn't have to pay other people several hundred dollars for beats.
Eventually I got good enough at audio engineering and producing to charge
When I first got started I was in a group called The Poetic Death, here's a link to the first project I ever worked on/released:
After that my friend Johnny WordWrite and I started a group called Bassheadz, here's a link to our website: https://www.bassheadzmusic.com/
Yes I have, I've opened for Sapient of the Sandpeople, IAME of the Sanpeople, Hopsin, Andre Nickatina and others. Once I even helped promote a show for Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube, I didn't get to meet them but I got in free and they KILLED IT!!!
As a producer: RZA, J.Dilla, Jake One, Evidence, 9th Wonder, Just Blaze, Anno Domini, Sapient, Kato On The Track, Timbaland, Scott Storch, Dr.Dre, Kanye West, Pharrell Williams and more.
As a rapper/emcee: Wu Tang Clan, Dilated Peoples, Atmosphere, Grynch, Grieves, Eminem, Sandpeople and more that I can't think of at this moment.
Apple iMac, Pro Tools, Digidesign MBox, M-Audio Axiom 49 1st Gen.,M-Audio BX5 Studio Monitors, Behringer BCF2000, an analog Behringer mixer, Audio Technica AT40/40 Condenser Mic, AKG K240 headphones and probably a few other things I'm forgetting lol.
