||About Brazil Dedication...
Kev Brown recently traveled to Brazil to do some shows. It wasn’t initially planned, but Kev ended up sticking around for two whole
months! While he was out there, he made this awesome instrumental record.
Peace Y’all... All these beats were made in Brazil. I went to Sao Paulo in December (2012) to perform and somehow, I ended up staying out there for 2 months! Maybe I’ll write a book one day...ha. I actually
made more than these (beats) while I was there, but for this project I narrowed it down to joints that have either a Brazilian “sample” or influence. I brought the MPC 2500 with me... and yes, I still have the
xl!. That was all I needed to make it happen. I was making beats in hotel rooms, at different people’s houses ... wherever. Goin’ hard, sampling straight in from whatever source was available at the time.
Most places I was at didn’t have turntables. The “Baile Black Remix” actually features live musicians that are sampled from the original Hyldon session ... that was definitely a new experience for me.
Traveling alone to a place where the main language isn’t english…
Check my instagram (@kevbrownpictures). I was takin’ mad pix till I lost my phone out there...haha.
God bless everyone I met along the way... Obrigado!/Thank you!
