Growing up the oldest of 5 I remember trying to start a band with my brothers and sisters as a kid. Didn't work very well but it set my brother on the musical path and he is a well known musician and drummer. Later I would try to start a band with friends of mine, we were still in grade school but I knew what I wanted to do. I eventually was successful in putting a group together and here we are today, still going.

FAQ
Why would I need a license?
A license is needed if you want to use the music for anything else than just listening for your pleasure. Typical uses are
  • freestyling over a beat
  • licensing music for use in TV or for a movie
  • remixing or use audio samples
What are the license options and what are the differences between those?
We offer up to 5 license templates (Basic, Premium, Track Out, Unlimited, Exclusive) and it's up to the artist which ones he/she wants to make available. Each license comes with different perks. In general, the higher the price, the better the perks.
You can click on each feature on the left side of the comparison chart above to learn more about each one.
When will I get the track I purchased?
You can download all related files immediately after your purchase. We also email you a one-time download link for a download later.
How can I remove the audio tag from the track?
A "tagged beat" is a demonstration version of an instrumental that contains distinct audio watermarks that typically play throughout the entire track. The purpose of a producer tagging his/her instrumental is to prevent piracy and to encourage serious recording artists to purchase a license.
To get a tag-free audio please make sure you purchase a license which features "untagged audio".
I purchased a $1 download, why is the beat still tagged?
Beats purchased for $1 in our store are meant for streaming and demo use only, just like downloads from iTunes store or Amazon music.
To license a beat without audio tag and to use in a professional manner please buy a license from this page. Usually those are $25 and up.
What is a stem / trackout file?
A Stem file is an audio file that contains a track split into several musical elements: A drums stem, a bassline stem, a harmony stem, and a lead stem for example.
The Stem file also usually includes the original stereo master of the track for standard playback.
Why would I need a stem / trackout file?
A trackout file gives you much better control. Imagine you rap over a beat and you realize the percussions take the focus away from your vocals. With a trackout file you can simply tone down the percussion and the focus is now on the vocals. With a trackout file you have much more flexibility and a whole different level of control.

Dustin Simpson started off writing short stories in public school, his grandfather taught him the basics of playing the acoustic guitar and from then on he was hooked. He started writing poetry in early high school years and this progressed to writing music. He started playing guitar with a high school friend in grade 9. Many years later he reunited with the same friend and along with some very close friends Including the late Mike Palmer on lead guitar, he formed a band that was called The Survivorz. He wrote the songs but it was the talent of the band that carried it forward and they were able to record some great music that can be found online to this very day ! Later he teamed up with another friend from public school and formed a new band called Decay and the Retribution. The band remained together and performed some shows in South Western Ontario. They remained together for about 10 years with Dustin playing the folk section of the show followed by a blues section. He was joined in the band by his son Josh who played keyboards. Following the disbanding of Decay and the Retribution he went on to using the stage name DustyMarcus. He is once again joined by his son on keyboards. We hope to hear a lot more from DustyMarcus in the future !!
Band/artist history
Growing up the oldest of 5 I remember trying to start a band with my brothers and sisters as a kid. Didn't work very well but it set my brother on the musical path and he is a well known musician and drummer. Later I would try to start a band with friends of mine, we were still in grade school but I knew what I wanted to do. I eventually was successful in putting a group together and here we are today, still going.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
Have played live many times and it always seems to be the weather that causes issues. Playing in the wind with set lists and music blowing everywhere makes for some fun times !!
Your musical influences
The Beatles and also the solo careers of John, Paul, George and Ringo. Alan Frew of Glass Tiger for his super upbeat positive attitude. Ric Ocasec of The Cars for his unique writing style, he is probably one of my biggest influences.
What equipment do you use?
Marshall amps all the way. Focusrite in my small home studio. Berringer sound board for live play.
Anything else?
We have been through many adaptations of ourselves but DustyMarcus feels right. We are doing what we were meant to do !!
