Weeks later, Dosage was introduced to DJ and Grammy-award-winning producer DJ Jazzy Jeff, who would come to be an integral part of his career.
In 2009, Dosage set our to record and distribute his first project, Sand and Foam. At the same time he created the brand, Third Degree, inspired by a group of childhood friends that he made music with.
On October 17, 2009, Dosage earned his first opportunity to open for Lupe Fiasco at Temple University’s homecoming in front of more than five thousand people. Sand and Foam was released months later, and Third Degree was shortened to 3D, representing Dream, Drive and Determination. He began branding tee shirts with the logo and selling them to help spread the word about his music and the brand.
In February 2010, after the release of Sand and Foam, Dosage joined Lupe Fiasco for the Steppin Lasers tour. Upon returning home from the tour, Dosage met DJ Ferno, now his official DJ.

Dosage and DJ Ferno played local Philadelphia venues opening for artists like The Roots, Lupe Fiasco, Dom Kennedy and more.
In 2012, Dosage dropped his stage name and released his third project In Due Time, under his birth name Dayne Jordan. The project expressed his thoughts on the local music scene and how he yearned to share his talents with the rest of the world. At the end of a performance for Heineken Green Room at the Blockley, Dayne Jordan and DJ Ferno announced that would be their last performance in their hometown for a while so that they could pursue their career on a global scale. They both reconnected with DJ Jazzy Jeff to begin that journey.
