As one half of the production duo Darkroom Productions, Juan Donovan has produced with his partner Jamal Roberts dozens of some of today's hottest artists. That list includes R Kelly, Wale, KD Lang, Brick Squad, Young Money, Maino, Kidd Kidd, Bad Boy, Dipset Byrdgang and more. The duo also won multiple awards for its ground breaking work on HBO's classic series "The Wire" and MTV's #1 show "Rob & Big". Film & TV is also a world Darkroom is familiar with as it has scored two documentaries and are currently working on a program for Amazon Studios.
The duo continues to make awesome music together as they have created their own record label & management firm, however Juan has always had the desire to do an instrumental concept album. Inspired by the albums by Sweetback and Society of Soul, Juan has tossed around ideas and concepts for years before finally buckling down in 2015 to work on his debut project. The album is going to be a genre-bending project called "Sophisticated Ignorance" which will be about 80% instrumental while also bearing compositions featuring some of the world's hottest talent.
A multitude of singles have been released by Juan Donovan that can be called Dance, EDM, Pop, or even R&B, but instead of giving it labels, Juan just calls it DOPE and hopes the world will soon agree.
