One of my favorite songs off of the NUMB debut EP by Brain Gang Blue is “Back To Reality” produced by Brain Gang Blue & Brain Gang X. This song is like threesome with your favorite R&B, HipHop Drums, to a Dubstep synth. I would’ve never imagined an Soul II Soul (80’s R&B group from London) sample couple ever be flipped like this.
Brain Gang Blue, who recently was picked up to finish out the rest of Kendrick Lamar’s Texas Tour, starting in the capital Austin Texas. His sound is something refreshing to Dallas and greatly needed. Continue to look out for Brain Gang Blue, 2012 is going to be a big year!
For Fans Of: N.E.R.D., Kendrick Lamar
Bio: Straight out of Dallas, Texas, the experimental beat scientist known as Brandon “Brain Gang” Blue started his musical voyage in 2004. Trying to follow in the footsteps of his influences: Timbaland, Missy Elliot, & The Neptunes, Blue always felt like he could be the next innovative music producer.
The EP “Numb” is filled with an electro influence.. Dubstep wobbles over Hip Hop drums, heavy electric synths with Texas style “screw” hooks over them, & uptempo beats with thought provoking lyrics which work together on a project that has a high level of replay value.
For Fans Of: Yelawolf, Rick Ross, Dorrough
Highlights: Cause I’m Good At It, Smell My Cologne (remix), Whats Wrong Wit Dem
