When it comes to that signature "808" sound in Dallas, everyone knows that there is only one producer who can get that unique flavor needed to make a hit. And that producer is Curt McGurt aka Mr.808
Born in McKinney, TX, a small suburban area just north of Dallas, and raised in Oak Cliff, Curt McGurt began a journey into music at a very early age. When he was just 3 years old, his father put a PlaySkool keyboard in front of him and he quickly caught on. He began playing melodies by ear that he would hear on the radio and on television. At that time, his parents knew he was up to a great musical start.
As Curt began to blossom, he continued to expand his musical talents. In elementary he became a key member in the band, orchestra, and choir learning to play a total of 11 instruments. Even through poverty and adversity Curt stayed devoted to being one of the best musicians the school had seen and won several musical and academic awards of excellence.
After high school, Curt dove straight into the music field. He began as an artist, putting out a project "KewlAde" that moved over 7000 units in the streets of DFW. Even with the initial success of being an artist, he knew his calling was to be a producer. So he switched his focus to creating phenomenal tracks that stood out with bold melodies and a heavy 808 bass that stood out among everyone else.
There became a point where you couldn't go to a club in Dallas and not hear that Curt McGurt signature sound. Artists from all over Texas began to catch on the wave and high interest began accruing for the Curt McGurt sound. He always stayed one step ahead of the competition and continued to create vibrant tracks that stood out and dared to be unique compared to the rest.
Throughout the years Curt has worked his way up the ranks and produced for several artists, including Ace Hood, Young Dolph, Johnny Cinco, Paul Wall, Z-Ro, Baby Bash, and Maserati Ye just to name a few. He has also written for several artists as well, being specifically known for creating catchy, melodic hooks.
This upcoming year is looking extremely bright and promising for Curt, with many big possibilities in store. The only way for Mr.808 is UP, and he plans on making sure that not only his city but the whole nation will know the name and the sound!
