Nino Brown is an up-and-coming star. There has been a lot of good feedback from fans of Nino. The Internet by Atlanta native and Athens, Ga. Resident Nińo Brown a.k.a. Cortez Garza is the 2nd single off his upcoming album, Redbone, set for release on February 9th of next year. Nińo Brown is a man on a mission having released 3 videos in just over 2 months, including his “Terrible Tingz” e.p. which dropped less than a month ago.
“The Internet” which is markedly different from the previous drop comes with a more thoughtful and intentional vibe, highlighted by the 1st class track production which was put together by Ihateyoujohnny, also out of Atl.
“I was having trouble finding a producer to work with and somehow he just fell into my lap, he was really the 1st person to respond. I feel like I sort of jumped to the front of the line so to speak. Most of the beats on the album came from him. It was only after I had started working with other producers that I realized how special his music was.” Says Brown.
From the offset, it’s striking the sincerity in both message and emotion of “The Internet”. A relatable tale of love and yearning. The song unfolds like a three-part act and the strong visual imagery can only be described with a word, synesthesia.
The Internet by Nińo Brown is available now on all platforms.
The catchy record was produced by Ihateyoujonny, & recorded, mixed, & mastered by Matt Tasmin. Part of the song was also mastered by four-time Grammy nominated producer / engineer Karl Helibron. The visual, available on YouTube starts with a dramatic sequence as if some sort of homage to James Dean and features a variety of local locations as well as a who’s who of Athens Ga. Hip-Hop royalty. “The video was directed by a local director/ videographer that goes by the name of “Goodie”. We worked together on the Summer Rain video and he has a style that I knew would be perfect for what I wanted to do. He’s definitely that guy as far as locals making rap videos” says Brown. Brown says to expect at least 2 more videos by the end of the year and 1 dropping in the month of January as well. The album “Redbone” , his debut album, is scheduled to drop February 9th. The Internet by Nińo Brown available now in all stores.
