David Lee Crow was raised on a goat farm with goats and cows in Buckeye , Arizona. His parents were unable to finance him, leaving him homeless to live in a van before deciding on moving into the city. He worked for two months at American Apparel who later fired him for being homeless. Shortly after being hired and fired from dozens of jobs, he became broke and moved back to the farm in Arizona to save up his finances before again returning to Los Angeles to give a career in electronic music another chance. He then produced an EP for the label but was turned down because it wasn't as 'funky' as his first song. After losing his job and all of his finances he then moved back to The farm to begin again. After seven months of saving up his money he moved back into his van in Los Angeles and started from scratch. At a rave, he met Mija and talked about collaborating before writing the song "Crank It". He then invited the pair to join him at the festival Burning Man where they became friends and sealed the deal for Ghastly to release music under his label.
