Our Producer Of The Week is 19-year-old producer Davin Jackson AKA JDOnThaBeat. JD is from Newtown, VA which is considered a "new urbanism" area of King & Queen, Virginia! His sound is fresh and new just like his hometown, and I love his producer tag the most! JD Wit Tha Flex! Some of his producer credits include Q Da Fool, Lil Lo, BRM Honcho, Jeythevillian, Luh Fam, HOLLYHOOD, Juniior Shinzo, and CamDaMan.
Vy: Who/what inspires you to produce?
JD: I would say my uncle Kevin Jaxon is the one who inspires me to produce. He is the one that I learned a lot from. I use to watch him make beats, mix, and record all the time. He is the reason why I am who I am today.
Vy: How long have you been making beats?
JD: I made my first beat when I was 10 years old, but I didn’t really start taking producing seriously until I was 16, so it’s been like 3 years.
Vy: What is your work process like?
JD: How do I start my work process? I usually listen to beats that I already made or different kinds of genres to get my creative genes going.
Vy: Lastly, name one fun fact about yourself!
JD: A fun fact about me would be that I also play the drums at church too.
I really enjoyed covering JDOnThaBeat because his story reminds me of myself a bit. Nineteen is the best age to be pushing for your dreams and passions, and JD already has three years of experience under his belt! Regardless of what track he makes, his personality shines through in each one. There is a good balance of instrumentals and bass which is quite difficult to execute. Be sure to check out JDOnThaBeat and look out for our next PRODOFTHEWEEK!
