Today we’d like to introduce you to Ced Wynez.
Ced, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I was born and raised in Miami, FL. I’m from the Liberty City area of Miami. I started creating music in 2005 while I was living in Savannah, Ga. I went to the bank and empty my bank account and brought a Triton LE keyboard for $600 bucks. I was making beats for a couple of artists in the area at that time. Fast forward to 2007, I moved back to South Florida and started working at Guitar Center. While working for GC, I learned a lot about recording, the business, and begin networking with people who were in the music business.
In 2010, I moved to Atlanta, GA. Then I realized how great the music scene was and started to network with different people in the city. I was producing music for local talent and other talents across the country. I landed a few placements in indie films, commercials, and landed a placement in an app video game. I also lived in Rock Hill, SC for two years right outside of Charlotte, NC. I networked with a few artists and DJs in the NC/SC area. I become part of the Fleet Djs as a Fleet producer for a brief moment.
I relocated to Atlanta once again. I started my record label “Dade Music Group” alongside Miami Hip hop artist Pollock DaKing. I also opened up a recording studio in North Atlanta. I’m also a General Manager of the Beat Battle team called ATL Track Monsters. I become an A&R under One Dynasty Entertainment where I help guide the careers of two artists under the label. This is my passion and I love the music business.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
The road to greatness is never smooth. On this path, you go through a lot of trials and tribulations. Not only I had to deal with the ups and downs of the music industry but also the ups and downs in my personal life. From financial issues, relationship issues, my children, being semi-homeless. When I moved back to Atlanta, I had to sleep in my truck many days and nights. Sleeping on the studio couches. I made and still making a lot of sacrifices just to be successful in this music industry. Starting a record label in this climate is tough. Because the music industry is always changing. Artists come and goes. You lose more money and time in the music business than anything. The road isn’t smooth at all.
Tell us more about your work.
Dade Music Group is a record label based in Miami, Fl and Atlanta, Ga. The label was established in mid-2018. We produced music in the hip-hop, r&b, and pop genres. We currently have two artists under the label. Our goal is to add two more artists in 2020. We also have two subsidiary companies Beats By Ced Productions and Quarter Milli Media. I wanted to create a company not only represents my hometown of Miami but also builds something to keep in my family. Starting a company alongside with my cousin Pollock Daking was something in the works for a long time. We are proud of D.M.G. because we have the tools and knowledge to run a successful company. Our sound and knowledge of the music business have already set us apart from others in Miami. The name alone speaks volumes.
Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
Honestly, “LUCK” hasn’t played any role whats so ever. Good or bad. Staying focus and having a passion for what you do has played a great role in most of my success in business and life.
