While breaking down, 'The Anatomy of a hit Record,' the Atlanta native broke down how much different it was to get put on 30 years ago. Although Davis had the advantage of being an early bloomer, getting DJ money locally in high school, after graduation, he realized that in order to really make some noise, he had to move to Miami, which had a much stronger music industry presence at the time.
Toomp ultimately explained that having great ears, an authentic obsession for music, a deep music collection, and creative skills, and knowledge of some of the latest production hardware and software, should put you on the path to hit records. Davis also stressed the importance of asking plenty of questions, learning the business aspect of the industry, and surrounding yourself with a solid team.
