While producing for a range of artists that include De La Soul, DJ Jazzy Jeff, and Jewel, it wasn’t until his remix work The Brown Album, the highlight of what became a billion homemade remixes of Jay-Z’s The Black Album that Kev Brown captured the attention of the entire hip-hop community.Paying homage to the true school while honing his own jazz-infused sound, Kev Brown has garnished a reputation as the torch-bearer of the golden era.
