Exclusive Interview with producer "Dego Brown"
What equipment do you use to produce?
I use Fruity Loops and Reason, but it's not what you use it's how you like your music to sound. You can make a hit on any program.
Do you think that there is any difference in the way that a producer listens to a track compared to how an MC listens to a track?
Yeah I do because they don't hear what the producer hears. The nuances in the sounds. The way the hi hats flow and different things like that. When I make a beat it's like making a meal, you need the right amount of ingredients to make the perfect dish.
As a producer and businessman how do you use the internet to your benefit?
Well I have my own website now DegoBrown.com so everything I do I promote through there and it has a big effect on the type of people that come through to listen to my music. I always used the internet whether it be Myspace, Facebook or YouTube. It helps me reach the people I would never been able to reach other wise.
What are some of the projects you are currently working on?
Well I'm from the U.K. so I'm working with U.K. artist's at the moment. I'm working on alot of mixtapes and a couple album from artist's like Ka Koke, Skwilla, Goodfellas, D-Fam, So Solids Face, Stylah, Jaja Soze, P.D.C. , Squeeze for P's, Industreets and I have a mixtape out in Philadelphia, PA in the U.S.A. with some cats called the Mightyonez.
What is the best way for artist's to contact you if they are interested in purchasing a track?
Just hit me up via email: firstname.lastname@example.org and to hear my work you can find it at www.degobrown.com, www.myspace.com/degobrown, www.youtube.com/degobrown1
Don't wait just show love.
Wishing you continued success!
