Produced by J-Starz and recorded a Lion's Den Studio in an hour, GT Mayne played the beat for his Houston underground Hip-Hop comrades and told them to write their verse in 15 minutes or less. This is the result.
Seattle Producer Def Dee Signs to Mello Music Group

The News: Seattle producer Def Dee has joined the Mello Music Group squad! Earlier this year the DMV's Damu the Fudgemunk (ReDef Records) brought Dee to MMG Director of Operations, Michael Tolle's attention. Dee was a junior in high school when he met Damu who mentored Dee for a few years after meeting. It didn't take long for Dee and Mello to find common ground and work out a multiple project deal. The 21 year old producer's sound is a distinct combination of his musical influences, life experiences, and key ambitions, all the while without any borders. Don't expect standard fare when you listen, Def Dee structures his songs by feeling not tradition: maybe you'll get a 4-8 bar chorus, or maybe he'll bring out the tambourines!
Def Dee's Reaction: When asked about how he feels being a part of the Mello Music Group squad, Def Dee said, "the majority of the artists I've been following happen to be on the label that I'm now in the midst of... it still bugs me out! It took a lot of luck, the right people, and some good timing. I'm very thankful and plan to give listeners some quality music."
What To Look Forward To: Def Dee has already begun work on his debut MMG project, a producers album to showcase his beatmaking skills and featuring a variety of noteworthy emcees that will be released in 2012. Dee will also be crafting a new full length instrumental album and producing a project with a solo emcee to be announced later. You can expect to hear Def Dee on the upcoming Mello Music Group compilation "Bodhisattvas" due out this winter.
To Celebrate: Def Dee & MMG are offering, for a limited time, the 29 track instrumental project Cheap Heat, produced entirely by Def Dee for free!
Enjoy the free instrumental album & feel free to share!
