I took notice of hip hop producers who produced hits for recording artistes. I took notice of Scott Storch, DJ Khaled and Dr.Dre. I became a huge fan of these three and at a point in time, I started messing with drums and keyboards and it felt really easy. I knew then that I could do this.
His daily routine is pretty “simple” ; work, studio, home. He currently has a record label (D.O.P.E Music).
Fortune Dane has worked with countless mainstream music artistes including Sarkodie, Kwaw Kese ,Paedae , Mugeez, D Black , Akwaboah and Efya.
