Nylon Trax “Conversations”, putting a face on House Music…
Introducing Nylon Trax veteran and amazing Artist/Producer Zē a.k.a BLAMES BROWN.
Jaymz Nylon: Would you please give the reader a little family background i.e.; Place of Birth, Current City you based in etc…
Blames Brown: I’m Zē a.k.a BLAMES BROWN originally from Augusta Georgia.. The oldest of three . I currently reside in Atlanta ga. I relocated here in the mid 90’s
JN: What are your short and long term goals?
BB: I’d have to say in the way of short term goals , currently myself and my new group effort ( Electric Kollextive Groove) is to gain as much awareness as possible for our debut releases.. As far as long term I’d like to have a major distribution deal in place , a robust promotional budget and all facets in house ie; ( film, mixing mastering , graphic design , staging , sound , and lighting..) 60 acres , solar panels, 1000 free range chickens, 2 fresh water lakes stocked,10acre all organic farm.. Etc:-)
JN: Passions and/or interest aside from music?
BB: I’m an artist across the board. I initially attended college for graphic design and fine arts.. I have worked professionally as a chef .. I have a passion for food preparation and am very interested in organic farming and film production
JN: Who has inspired you and why? It could be Artists, Bands, Activists, Politicians, Family Members, Teachers etc…
BB: I would have to say I was most influence by the likes of James Brown , that is in part because he represented my home town world wide influencing all popular music to this day and because this proves it doesn’t matter where you’re from but what what’s in you and what you have to give.
JN: What message or advice you would like to give to music consumers/fans?
BB: I would have say first respect the craft and the sacrifices those who create it have made in order to do so . There are a lot of artist who have shared their talents with the world sacrificing their personal lives and the personal lives of their families only to meet their demise depleted and unfulfilled ..second realize that everything depends in everything , so the listeners’ support is Imperative.
JN: Would you say that you lead a well balanced life if so how do you stay centered? If not what changes would you make to achieve your desired result? Examples; Read more, exercise, better sleeping habits, more time with loved ones etc…
BB: I’d say for the most part I’m one that lives by moderation . I don’t eat pork, red meat , no liquor, no cigarettes , I run weekly, push ups and pull ups daily ,And I generally stay away from soft drinks. The other half of my balance comes from the mutual love and adoration of my two beautiful daughters.. They give my life purpose.

JN: What is more important, the sharing of music or the format in which music is shared?
Blames Brown: That’s a tuff one.. Because I believe that the thing that makes the sharing of music special is that it is best shared from a physical perspective rather than a virtual one. ” LONG LIVE VINYL”
