Desmond "DSP" Powell

With more than a decade of production and writing experience, DSP has developed a sharp eye for how songs get bloated with inefficiencies, cross-purposes and miscommunication - and how they can be retooled for a sleeker , smoother , strategically focused approach.  As an entrepreneur who quicky built his own successful production publishing business ( at the age of 16 ) , he also empathetically helps other business owners set priorities and create the balance they want between life and music.  His clients have ranged from billionaire giants like Ted Fields ( co - founder of Interscope records ) , to superstar Kanye West  ; and an array of famous an On- the-Rise singers , rappers , and musicians.
