We had the good fortune of connecting with Darius “Droyd” Bryant and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Darius “Droyd”, do you have a favorite quote or affirmation?
I guess you can call this a quote but I really live by the 3M’s. Make A Choice, Make The Commitment and Make It Happen.

Make A Choice is important because choosing is your birth right so you have to choose or say yes to pursuing your dream to solidify it in your life’s script.

Making The Commitment is powerful because a Commitment is a set mind and a set attitude. So you are isolating yourself from everything that is not leading you to your destiny and committing to the time, the work, building relationships etc.

Making It Happen is funny because Happen is a action word so you have to ELIMINATE ALL EXCUSES and get it done no matter what. It is this very last step that shows who the diamonds are because execution is EVERYTHING.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
It’s a lot of questions in this one so I’ll try to catch them all lol. I think what sets me apart from other creatives in my field is my ability to embrace what the art is becoming and channeling my ear to be able to hear how it wants to flow. I call it Blind Theory. The silent connection or chemistry with the creation of art that allows you to tap into your genius in the process. I got where I am professionally by walking by faith and not by sight. Constantly waking up and getting better, facing rejection, building relationships, losing relationships it’s all apart of the preparation for the real opportunity that’s already pre destined. Staying committed is the only rule. No matter what. Was it easy? Definitely not. But it was worth it. I overcame a lot of challenges but narrowing it down to two questions. Do you want to do this opportunity to take me to my next step? or am I gonna say no? Sometimes you need to say no, but there are actually times when we need to be quiet and just do the work and recognize when there is a opportunity in front of us to take us to that next level. Know and understand when those times occur. I guess that’s a lesson as well that I’ve learned lol. My Brand has been around for a while. I’ve done stuff with many artist but I’m proud of the work I’m doing in the Kpop world which is where my sound is thriving the most. I most recently produced Kpop Talent NCT127 “Focus” from their debut album STICKER and I must say that’s my brands biggest song and I’m very proud of that work of art. I hope I caught all the questions lol.

 

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Wow well we are definitely doing brunch at Blue Daisy in Santa Monica so i can get my waffles with the strawberries and bananas ya feel me. Then we headed right up the street to the beach EASY. My manager always have these amazing art shows so we would definitely pull up there. Shopping is my therapy so there will be a lot of that going down lol. We can go out for drinks hopefully it’s Tuesday so I can get tacos and a Michelada and hit up a couple studios so they can see how it is in the field lol but yea I’m pretty spontaneous so I be thinking of activities on the fly.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
ShoutOut to my brother and my manager Vakseen who is also in LA. He deserves some recognition in my story because he literally came up with a plan with me for my success and followed through even when we had to adjust the plan sometimes. He was apart of the molding of my sound and kept me sharp when it came to the business side of things. so I appreciate Vakseen for everything. He’s the real MVP.
