05/30: Tony Dofat on Remixing Mary J. Blige with Diddy
NODFACTOR.COM has an interview
with music producer Tony Dofat. It focuses on his work with Diddy during the Bad Boy CEO's days with Uptown Records. In addition, Dofat discusses how Faith Evans was introduced to Diddy.
I did this Christopher Williams beat and Vincent Herbert came in the studio and said “I got this girl from Jersey, her name is Faith. Yo she sings.” He brought her by the studio and she sang for us. We asked her if she could do something for the Christopher Williams records and she said yeah. She went into the booth after I did the beat she sang on it. We said she sounded hot. That was her first time in the booth and we were like, we gonna keep that. Puff ended up signing her and she became a super star.
