A native of Toronto, Canada and a child of the early 80s DVient was introduced to hip hop through the influence of his older brother at an early age. Armed with a Yamaha keyboard DVient possessed an above average ability to create sonically pleasing melodies. Although blessed with this talent, DVient’s interests gravitated away from music and into sports. This change in focus led to an academic and athletic scholarship to Ball State University where he would earn a bachelors degree in finance. Being 600 miles away from family and friends DVient met a crew of individuals, who eventually formed the hiphop group KM2, in 2000 in the university dormitories. Through these friendships and the encouragement of family ultimately pushed him back into the art of beat making. With a keyboard in hand DVient is set to create his own avenue within the music industry.
