||Kev Brown has done his Homework and he’s back to teach us a new
lesson with his Delve Into Classical Moog.
Artists are often measured by not just talent, but their portfolios.
Pursuing one idea after the next and absorbing inspiration from an array
of sources, some of the most memorable and storied artists are also
great storytellers. With over 15 years in the business, Kev Brown has
consistently been at the forefront of hip hop production. His instantly
recognizable yet often imitated sound is a fabled treasure that makes his
legacy not only a work in progress, but a work of art.
With such history, one might ask, what’s left? If you ask Kev Brown, he’ll
assure you that there’s unfinished business and still untapped territory
to explore. 50 plus years ago it was a similar mentality that propelled
visionary Robert Moog to the peak of what we classify as electronic
music. Moog’s adventurous engineering in synthesis was not just a
creation to house his discoveries, but an open source universe that
musicians of all ages, backgrounds and genres would develop into the
infinite artistic space of today. From pop to rock to jazz to even country &
western, there’s no style of music that hasn’t been graced by the Moog
synthesizer. Hip hop is no stranger to this beast. Beginning in the early
days of the 80’s all the way to the sounds of Dr. Dre’s G Funk to Dilla’s
Detroit takeover, the Moog is well traveled. Along it’s journey, Kev Brown
got acquainted with the sounds of this instrument through his own rite of
passage. Who knows where the last chapter will conclude, but since Kev
is far from done, he’s proud to unveil his latest experiment.
