SCRATCH MAGAZINE TV - KEV BROWN DISCUSSES THE BROWN ALBUM, DANGERMOUSE AND MORE
If I remember correctly, Kev Brown was the first producer to remix the entire Black Album. As Kev Brown mentions, his remix of Jay-Z's Black Album was largely influenced by 9th Wonder's God's Stepson. As you can see in this interview, Kev Brown is still a little salty about Danger Mouse's Grey Album getting more shine (I'd be too considering how that album launched Danger Mouse's multi-platinum career). In addition to the Brown vs. Grey album controversy, the interview also contains quite a bit of production technique and equipment information.
**UPDATE: If nothing else, I recommend going to the 20:30 mark and listening to the discussion of how Jay-Z/Kanye changed the game and how they both still have the ability to change it again (in a positive direction). I couldn't agree more. Jay-Z/Kanye could bring back boom-bap and still sell as many records as they normally would because fans will always buy and play their music. Reminds me of the saying, "youth is wasted on the young." In this case I think it's more like talent being wasted on the talented.
