DeeGi is an American record producer, musician, songwriter, and recording engineer born in Detroit, MI. A rap fan since his youth in the 1990s and early 2000s, DeeGi has been producing music since high school. A longtime fan of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Tupac, Biggie, and Eminem, he always knew he wanted to be a part of the creative process of making music.
Inspired by Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter III and Kanye West’s 808s and Heartbreak, he bought his first beat machine and began making his own beats. At first, he would try to emulate the sounds and rhythms he heard on these records, but over time he began developing his unique sound as he honed his production skills. DeeGi also plays several instruments in addition to mixing and mastering songs. Contrary to his origins, he doesn’t only produce rap music but has a catalog including pop, dance, house, and R&B in addition to hip-hop music.
“Why Don’t We?”
DeeGi’s recent collaboration with DISTANT PKWY, “Why Don’t We?” was released earlier this year. DeeGi combines punchy pop drums and a smooth guitar riff that entices the listener. Though the beat is highly complex and intricate, it is not overproduced by any means. DISTANT PKWY’s melodic vocals cut through the mix and beg the curious question “Why Don’t We?”. You can find links to the track on Spotify and Apple Music here.
