The D.E.G. All Star Production Line up Presents....
Chief Of Productions, 12x Platinum Producer,
"Don Destin", T.E.A.M. Destin.
Not many can say they knew what they wanted to be at
nine months old. But Don "Destin" Daws II whether he knew
it or not was destined for greatness. Trained in classical violin
from the age of four, drums and piano at the age of six, and
guitar and bass by the age of eight, Don Destin has the edge
that he needs to be the next "Super-Producer". By nine years old Don was scoring
violin excerpts by hand and later began performing and studying with some of the
greatest violinists in the world (Myron Moskalyk, Isaac Stern, and Joshua Bell).
If it's Mozart or Mendelssohn, Quincy or R-Kelly, Timberland or Dr. Dre;
Don Destin can do it all.
When Don formed his former R&B group AZ-1 he saw the perfect opportunity to learn how
to produce and put all his acquired skills to test. Performing at NBA basketball games,
opening for Bryan McKnight and Lauryn Hill, and being broadcasted live on BET gave the
group the attention they needed to gain major label interests. Even though the inevitable
breakup of the group devastated Don, it never stopped him. He focused on developing
his production company, “T.E.A.M. Destin Productions.”
With the violin mastered, Don knew that to be the best he had to learn from the best.
Don left his home in Toronto, Canada and moved to Los Angeles, California where he
was mentored by some of the greats in the music industry. Working side by side with
hit producers and engineers for a few years proved to pay off when Don landed his first
record placement on T.I.'s “T.I vs. T.I.P” album. This was an unexpected blessing that
gave Don instant platinum status and a Grammy nomination. Not bad for the first time out.
With a platinum record under his belt, he continued to work hard until "I love L.A" was
placed with Young Dre. That record released on The Sims 3 video game which
sold over 6 million copies.
Now, two platinum records to add to his arsenal, Don began to reshape and redefine his
sound for more creativity. Most recently Don landed a record with long time
production partner and friend Rene "Snaz" Hill for...Drake's “Thank Me Now Mixtape.”
This is only a testament to Don's talent and you can be sure to expect great things
from Don "Destin" Productions.

Taxi Williams Music.
MichaelAnthony Williams, a.k.a (TAXI Williams), born...
March 8th, 1984, in the Great State of Houston, Texas,
desired to be a sketch artist as a child.
However, this was soon to change on the magical day,
when he heard the theme song for the
Action Packed Thriller, “TERMINATOR II”. Mesmerized by what he heard, TAXI ran to
the Family’s Old Grand Piano and attempted to play the melody of the record by ear.
This Inspiration birthed a Strong Desire in him to Learn more…
At the Tender age of 12 years old, TAXI joined his local sixth grade Honor Band at
Eckert Intermediate School, where he Learned and Mastered the Clarinet. Later,
TAXI became interested in learning how to play the piano, so he started taking
lessons from Houston’s Own, “Dakri Brown”; Lead Minister of Music for
Mega Church, “Harvest Time”, in Houston, Texas. “Dakri Brown” is also noted for his
Professional role as a background Singer for...
“Grammy Award Winning Gospel Sensation, Israel Houghton & New Breed”.
At 18, TAXI began experimenting with musical Production and Writing.
Barely a Legal Adult; TAXI was fortunate enough to have the opportunity
to be mentored by “Super Producer Davion Botts” a.k.a. (D. BOTTZ) in the
Professional Art of Production.
TAXI began incorporating his musicianship within his live production recordings, which
created a “High Demand” for his Music Services. TAXI also embraced playing the piano
for Various Ministries around the country including but not limited to;
“NEW LIGHT CHURCH, GLOBAL IMPACT, & HARVEST TIME.”
TAXI’s hard work and talents have granted him special privileges to share the
stage with “National Platinum Recording Artists” such as Gospel Legend, “Shirley Ceasar”,
“Grammy Winner”, “Will Downing”, Soul Singer, Angie Stone”, “Karen Clark Sheard”,
“Marvin Sapp”, “Israel Houghton”, “Vanessa Bell Armstrong”, and a Host of many others.
TAXI’s stage name was developed by his keen sense to translate musical idea’s from
thought to the form of Music. TAXI’s hope is to leave a Legacy of branded memories
and innovative ideas, which will revolutionize the Entertainment Industry as he quotes…
“My Chief desire is to reach multiple nationalities around the world;
bridging the gap for music fans of all walks of life,
to speak the same language through my music across multiple Genres and platforms from
Film, to Gospel, Hip Hop, Pop, and R&B.”

MR. J, Producer/Artist of The ARKITEK's
Mr. J, born April 27, 1987 to Ms. Debra Aboage and Mr. John Scott Sr. as, “John Scott Jr.” is a Conservative well spoken Young Native of Houston, Texas, with a strong passion for “Good Music”. Mr. J’s “versatile styles” can never be duplicated or imitated as he is the definition of a “True Original”; with a unique approach to producing records. Mr. J brings a laid back “F.L.Y. Swagga” to the D.E.G. Productions Camp andpossesses a “True SouthernStyle” of musical capabilities with East coast influences.
However, at the same time he knows how to appeal to the movements of the female persuasion while giving the Hardcore Head bangers what they need at the same time. Mr. J also has a very humorous side, as he tends to focus on the brighter side of everyday life. Mr. J is also a talented writer and artist. He actually began rapping as a Hobby early in his Freshman year of High school. He never backed down from any challenge and brought the “heat” to any “so-called” M.C. that wanted to test his lyrical ability.
As Mr. J improved on his rapping skills, he later teamed up with a couple of local rappers.., “20/20” & “Skam R'tist”. The crew later went on to form a movement known as the “Arkiteks”. The meaning of this name was derived by the hopes of rebuilding all the negative surroundings in the midst of them. A couple of Mr. J's influences are GOD 1st, then…his older Brother and fellow Producer, “Michael TAXI Williams.” Destiny Entertainment Group is excited to have Mr. J aboard, and Expect Amazing things to come with him…he is definitely a Producer with a lil somethin’ extra up his sleeve with his bag of many tricks!
