Goodbye 2020!

The year was long & grueling and now that it's over, what better way to breakout than to unleash the massive potential that you’ve been holding back since March.

At the Dojo, we’ve grown by leaps and bounds so it’s only fitting that we make  2021 the biggest, baddest and best year ever.

This year we are going to game-ify the Dojo, adding new lifestyle improvement dimensions as well as a community leader board with monthly celebrations, track feedback, and active promotion of all the amazing music that the dojo yields.

At Producer Dojo, our community is the center of everything we do and our community has really shaped up in the last year. It’s been a lifeline in dark times and now it’s time for our community to shine.

So let’s celebrate! Let’s celebrate you! Let’s celebrate your music! Let’s celebrate your progress! Let’s celebrate your gains!

In every crisis there is an opportunity and 2021 is going to provide some of the juiciest music industry opportunities that we've ever seen. We all need to be in the best possible shape to take advantage of all of the gaps left in the music business and we need to be in our best shape to compete with everyone else who is trying to do the same.

But they don’t have a dojo do they?

This year we added so much to the Dojo! The music on the label is the best it’s ever been. We are doing regular showcases with killer audio/video performances from some of our top artists. We’ve got our new DojoTV streaming network that highlights, celebrates, and educates our community every week. We’re getting booking requests for artists in the Dojo to open for me, ill.Gates. Many of the Dojo artists are totally killing it and becoming very well-known.

The Dojo is your launch pad to greatness. It was created to open up the gates of the music industry and show you the path. The Dojo is the ideal launch pad for your musical dream. We’ve been through so much of the hard stuff so that we can make it easy. So let’s give it one last big push as we get ready for the grand reopening of the music industry. 


The Producer Dojo Membership is my workflow.

It’s my way of showing you how to literally REMIX YOUR LIFE

I have touched lives with my art, but I TRANSFORM lives with Producer Dojo. There is a big difference in how it feels. It's satisfying at a whole other level and I am HOOKED!

I made a pledge to my community to create 1000 music careers, and that I was going to create The Producer Dojo to accomplish my goal.

Over years of producing with top names in the business, I learned what it takes to be successful and over the years of teaching, I learned how and why so many producers fail to meet their goals. At the end of the day there is one factor that separates the successful producers from broken dreamers: output.

Content is king.

There are three magic tweaks that, when used together, are able to more than DOUBLE the rate at which people achieve their personal goals, regardless of whether the goals are about fitness, creative, or whatever else.

These three factors used together are how I have been able to Remix My Life, finally getting regular with working out, finally quitting drinking, quitting nicotine, writing in my journal daily and doing timer beats every single day.

Using these factors together makes discipline a no-brainer and the entire Dojo is built on this.

REMIX YOUR LIFE three factors:

  1. Turning goals into an Action Plan and formally committing to a series of deadlines.
  2. Creating 3rd Party Accountability for the deadlines in the Action Plan.
  3. Sharing updates with the Third Party, ideally on a weekly basis.

Producer Dojo is the best thing I have ever done. Releasing chart topping music, traveling all over the world, setting the record for the most sets at a single Burning Man, selling out solo headline shows, playing for crowds of 10000 and even 15,000 people at once, meeting Bill Gates, selling my farts to Microsoft, making ringtones for the Windows Phone, getting a visa to move to the USA, making and releasing 5 studio albums, making official music for Star Wars - that stuff was all cool but these were just MY accomplishments. These just furthered my OWN ends. It was fun and it felt good to accomplish these things, I loved the validation of it, but there’s a level at which these are selfish accomplishments born of ego and vanity.

I have touched lives with my art, but I TRANSFORM lives with Producer Dojo. There is a big difference in how it feels. It's satisfying at a whole other level and I am HOOKED!

This is why the slogan of Producer Dojo is
“Remix Your Life”.
I really, truly mean that shit from the bottom of my soul.

This is a much deeper transformation than most people think - and it does take effort - but it’s not magic, it’s not impossible, and with the right friends it’s actually a whole lot of fun. In fact it is the single most fun and rewarding thing a music lover can do with their time. You have to step outside your comfort zone, you have to be ruthlessly honest with yourself, you have to make a lot of mistakes along the way, but it is more deeply satisfying than anything else in life ever.

Remixing Your Life feels better than sex.

At the end of the day it needs to be about musicians teaching musicians the ways of the trade. It is that one-on-one training, working together, collabing, focusing on output… that has always been and always will be what really gets results.

The entire Producer Dojo was built on this approach and that’s why the Dojo is the absolute best possible place you can go to learn and grow your career.

That’s why I created The Producer Dojo Membership. It’s my way of showing you how to literally REMIX YOUR LIFE. 

It’s a program unlike ANYTHING out there because we actually hold your hand through the entire learning process.  Let me break it down for you:

One on one coaching with our Dojo Senseis. These Senseis have gone through my programs, they’ve released on my label, and they know EXACTLY what it takes to gain significant progress.

Every month you’ll meet with one of our Dojo Senseis and you’ll get an hour video session. During this session, your Sensei will help you breakthrough any of the blocks you may be currently facing. They’ll be your coach and they’ll hold you accountable to your goals and deadlines.

Not only will you get one-on-one coaching with your Sensei, but I’m throwing in a couple of badass bonuses!
You'll have EVERYTHING you need to be successful.
