Since learning the drums at the age of 5, Dave Santos always had a passion for music. He was always into all styles of music, especially Hip-Hop and Rap. Growing up in church, Dave was surrounded by talented musicians. At the age of 11, Dave Santos decided to pick up a microphone and for almost a decade he would express himself through emceeing, but something about the music was calling him beyond the words! Always wanting to produce but never having the finances for it, Santos waited until he graduated from high school to tap into his passion. With his graduation money, he invested in the essentials; an Akai MPC 2000 sampler/drum machine, a turntable and some records.

Eight years later, he has been very busy. He has produced and worked with Sev Statik, the Tunnelrats, Propaganda, Dokument, Listener, Sintax, Poems, Hip Hop Is Music, Griffin, Emcee One, Lucid, RedCloud, KJ-52, Kaboose, Derrick Fury just to name a few.

In 2010, he released his first full-length, a collection a original beats featuring guest emcees that have work with Santos over the years.
