Apollo Brown
Apollo Brown is different than most producers. He grew up on the Seals & Crofts—not The Isley Brothers—version of Summer Breeze. Born into a bi-racial family in Grand Rapids, Michigan, his early influences skewed more toward the music of Journey and the Carpenters than the urban genres his peers often cite as inspiration. This is not to say that once hip-hop came into play, Apollo wasn’t all in. Just as easily as he can praise the virtues of yacht rock

UP NOW (ft. Keenan Victor)
This is the single from an upcoming album at the end of the month. UP NOW features another artist, Keenan Victor, who has worked with me many times in the past. I've known Keenan for 3+ years, so we always have good vibes when we work together. I believe this song is the tone for my new album and the best representation of where I am with my music. The song is very energetic, lyrically-driven, with a unique beat in the background. The introduction samples lyrics from an older song of mine. Repeating the words : "Lifelike, I'm feeling lifelike. Life-like. I'm feeling life, like". This is recognizable to fans who have been listening to me for a while. I love to leave in these "Easter eggs" for long-time listeners. I use this as an intro to the entire album as a nod to the previous project. This is my first time working with the producer, Ash Matthews, he's a friend of a friend. Ash said he was a bit of a nerd and found the inspiration for the beat in a Commodore 64 commercial from the 80s. I don't understand how he did it.. but it inspired me and Keenan to make this. This song is engineered entirely by me, Omniscient Art. Keenan recorded his own vocals then sent them to me. Ash sent me the production. I made the final decisions in the mixing and "mastering" stages. more

Lights Please (remix by Leslo)
This track is a remix of J. Cole's "Lights Please". I made a beat based on a Sade track and I added Sade's vocals for the hook. Thank you for listening and sharing, salute ! #HipHop #Remix #Rap #Jcole #Instrumentalmore
