Who Is DreadpooL?
DreadpooL (formally known as Crescendo) is a Music Producer, based out of Springfield, VA. DreadpooL was born and raised in Washington DC and began studying the clarinet in the third grade. He later attended Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington DC, where he picked-up the baritone saxophone. Upon graduation, he studied music at Clark Atlanta University in Atlanta, GA and this is when he officially began creating beats.
By the time DreadpooL reached junior high school, he knew that he wanted to make a living producing music, particularly music for TV/Film. He's always wanted to be the creator in the background, and never preferred the front stage.
After many years of producing music, he took a break to pursue another passion in photography, starting Tic-Tac-Pose Photography. During this pursuit, while very successful, he realized that there was nothing else that he wanted to do, but music. In 2013, he closed his photography studio, sold all his equipment, and began building his home studio... again. This time, it was all or nothing. Crescendo Forever Entertainment was rebirthed, will a different drive and a different outlook.
DreadpooL works with up & coming artists, as well as works with MusicXray.com as a Music Industry Professional, assessing the music submissions of other artists, producers and songwriters. He also leases his beats via his online beat store at https://dreadpoolmusic.com. In 2019, he began to release his beats via digital distribution, to be shared with everyone.
DreadpooL doesn't prefer to put genre tags on his music, as his style changes and sometimes it is hard to label. "Don't place me in a box", is his famous phrase. He prefers to stand on his own and stays away from labels and publishers that want him to produce music that sounds like the works of others. When DreadpooL heads into his studio, he sits down and plays around with many sounds until something touches his soul and he builds around that. "I never sit down with a song or genre in mind. I sit and simply create what I am feeling in that moment".
DreadpooL is unique, he's different, and he's always willing to work with artists, but only if they have the same work ethics as he does. He plays no games when it comes to music. If you are seriously considering working with him, be certain that you are ready to work just as hard as he is because once you say that you are ready, he begins to move at 100 miles per hour!
