BIO: BUZZ BLAZE
Rags and Ruins:
Saga of the Fate Maker
Being that I’m a man of split descent status , I guess you can say I’ve always had a foot hold in both worlds , the black and the white. Know what I’m saying, I’ve seen the good, the bad and the ugly from both sides of the so called (peace pipe).
I’ve been hated by many who hardy know me and loved by those who know me best! My style is one of many that exist within the realm of the Fate Makers. The weapon I claim is dragon style. Dragon style is untamable, ever evolving and most importantly unstoppable!
Like my style and my flow, the talents that I use in the Bull Pit are endless. I produce record and perform multiple vital tactics, which make it possible for us to bring Fate Maker Studios to the forefront of the Canadian music industry and mind space.
Fate Maker Studios is now was then and always will be our unstoppable dream. It lives in the hearts and souls of its members and artists, we at the Bull pit are made up of equal parts of light and darkness. I believe in helping who ever I can, when ever I can, ask anyone who’s ever worked with me.
I put in a lot of time, effort and only ask a fair return. It’s better with me than against me, cause some dreams come true and than some just shatter! An orphan at the age of 15, I had to live life by the hustler’s handbook.
In the game of making ends meet, its survival of the fittest and I’m the dog that can’t be tamed or chained. I, Dana Boyd (A.K.A, Buzz Blaze) the creator of Fate Maker Studios and Bullpit recordz, I am also the Producer, Manager, Talent scout, creative & web designer at http://fatemakerstudios.bravehost.com.
This is my life, my legacy. I take all aspects of what I’m doing very seriously. One of my lessons early on in life was that you have to give respect and it will come back at you in rare form at odd times. Anyway back to the facts, as a producer I have served a wide spectrum of functions.
Here are just a few things I’ve done, many producers and artists are out there jackin beats and doing damage of an unfriendly nature. You could say I’m doing the same shit, but you would be wrong! let me keep it real wit ya, if I jack a beat, I always give respect cause if I didn’t like it I’m not going to use it ! Beware swords are sharpened on mixtapes!!! When I first started working on the Don Kronic Demo we did a track called Bullpit Anthem it’s written and performed by the don, mixed and produced by buzz blaze. We did the song different ways different mixes.
One of the coolest soundz I’ve created is titled Twisted and Blazed. Its sounds a little bit like chopped and screwed mixes I’ve heard, respect to Michael Watts. You can sample Bullpit Hells Flame and other fate maker hits at http://donkronic.fuzz.com
I would also like for you to know that I am a strong believer in God and in the law of the land; all we have in this harsh world is our word and our balls! Both of mine are intact!! So pass the mic and the crown!!! PEACE, BUZZ BLAZE
