HTP 9: Duncan Tembo


Having begun  at a young age of 15 years, Dunken aka "DMTbeats" found purpose and a spark to be heard. 

Following strenuous encouragement from a close high school friend: DMTbeats entered into the worldwide coveted, "iStandard Music Production contest" online edition. Here the young aspiring Record creator would find prominence and notability.

After earning his place into the contest's final round, after a steady climb above 50,000+ prior submission of his peers, much to his disbelief - DMTbeats found himself among the top 5 remaining contenders.

Despite not winning the contest, having his music listened to and constructively criticized by 1/3 of the Grammy Award winning American record production "J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League" - this was the defining moment that would inspire, motivate and push DMTbeats to more diverse musical achievements in pursuit of making a name for himself in the intimidating world that is the music industry.

From local artists based in and around Glasgow - Scotland, to more international acts discovering his sound from various social media platforms and has even taken the leap into more than just producing good beats into managing artist and as of January 2017, establishing his own Record Label/artist management team: Infinitime Music Group, which in late November 2017, released "Unlove High" from their artist Lauren B. Colli.

With an extensive catalogue of production raging Trap/Hip Hop, Contemporary RnB, House, Funk and EDM, DMTbeats' repertoire of accomplishments is forever growing, with local names including but not limited to: Chayniq (Artist Duo), Scope, R. Pizy, New Born Stars (N.B.S) and Ock Cobain to name a few.
