Rabbitt Productions - Up & Coming Atlanta Producer

When you think of music in Atlanta you generally think of Crunk Music but there is more to Atlanta's musical soundscape than that. Lots of young musicians in the A-Town venture off into different musical directions. One such musician/DJ/Producer is DeJuan Boyd, head of Rabbitt Productions.

DeJuan Boyd has been producing since 1991. He started DJing at the age of 11 under the influence of older guys in his neighborhood. He learned rather quickly by emulating the likes of such greats as Jam Master Jay, Jazzy Jeff, Mix Master Ice as well as local DJ's like DJ Toomp and others. He performed in talent shows & spun for numerous groups in high school. DeJuan was asked to join a group called First Degree comprised of an M.C. by the name of Jack Frost whom which he grew up and went to school with and another DJ by the name of Nay Palm that lived two houses away. It was at this time he made the natural transition from Disc Jockey to Producer. The group later dissolved but DeJuan continued to hone his craft making beats fusing classical riffs, dramatic chords, samples and piano string ensembles which he became known for. He would accentuate the track with precise cuts throughout the track to either lace the hook and/or compliment the track.

In 1998, he started Rabbitt Productions and teamed up once again with his old bandmate Jack Frost, who was then known as Jihad and joined The Global Desperados. They toured the East Coast on the college curcuit and garnered a noteworthy buzz throughout the eastern southern states. The group disbanded and DeJuan continued to produce for Jihad as well as other local talent. Through his guidance, City Boy, an up and coming local rapper landed a recording contract and produced two tracks on the upcoming album. He continues to produce and sell tracks and have a few projects in the works. To contact DeJuan for prodcution or information email him at [email protected]

Frederick Glover is a freelance writer and music critic. A native Atlantan, he studied music and covered various bands while traveling with them on the road.
