About

Hey all, My name is Destery Smith, I co-own and operate a YouTube Channel called DesandNate as well as another channel called Capndesdes.
I have always been interested in dabbling with music. From 9th grade, I was stuck in a graphic design class with a shiny new Apple computer in 2005. It came standard with Garageband, an amazing tool that helped me get started in my music making career. I knew my hunger for making music would not be satiated by a mediocre program, so I sought to get more knowledge. Thats when I ran across Propellerheads Reason. It helped me REALLY get started into making music.
Originally, Only making music that one would only hear in elevators, and then slowly progressing into:
House, Funk House, Disco House, Electro House, Dubstep, Trance, Hardstyle, Rap, etc.
I was so interested in the different uses of the program that I got immersed inside it, and now, instead of producing only one style of music, Have over 300 unfinished Tracks of different genres.

On another note, also when in 9th grade, I stumbled across a CD from a friend. It was "The Postal Service - Give Up". The album was played nearly 20 times a day for me for a year straight. I became so obsessed that my goal was to be able to sing. Throughout literally 6 or 7 years, I have been proud to say that my voice is similar in very many ways to my singing inspiration, Ben Gibbard, Lead singer of Death Cab for Cutie, and the Postal Service.

I would have to say a weakpoint in musical talent for me is Lyrics. I used to be quite good at writing them, and then since 10th grade, hit some sort of snag in almost all creative writing. So if any of you feel like creating lyrics for me, I am more then willing to share my thoughts and Instrumentals.

As of now, I am working on my first ever EP of my one man band: Stop! The Attack! In time, I hope to make it a great album, however now it is just instrumentals with empty lyrics and no vocals. Anyways, that was musical tale, I hope you all stay and follow me and hope you enjoy my music. Thank you!

    My "David After Dentist Remix" Entirely not complete at all. The Instrumentals are original, and done by me. The vocal samples were cut from David after dentist, the popular youtube video

    This is a song a lot of people have maybe heard from my "Unetikk" channel called "Regret". Its very weird, it samples 8 bit sounds as well as glitch sounds and a house beat. lol
