Veteran hip-hop producer J.J. Brown and audio engineer Dan “The Deacon” Maier (collectively known as 5G Productions) establish partnership with Well Done Entertainment’s growing roster to unleash J.J. Brown’s solo debut “Connect The Dots.” worldwide on November 10th, 2009. The album boasts features from Travis McCoy of platinum selling alternative hip-hop collective Gym Class Heroes, hip-hop legend Craig G, long-time collaborator louis logic and a who’s who of underground hip-hop’s established and emerging talent including Reef The Lost Cauze, Homeboy Sandman, Block McCloud, Eternia, Nola Darling, Celph Titled, King Magnetic, Poison Pen, the1shanti and more.
Of the album title, J.J. explains, “The phrase “Connect The Dots.” actually comes up a lot in the studio because 99% of this industry is hustle, and the harder you’re grinding, the more people you end up knowing. The real trick is to be clever with how you connect all the dots to make yourself a part of the most fruitful network possible for where you’re trying to go. My album came together just like that from every guest appearance to every VIP behind the scenes making it happen.”
In support of the album, J.J. Brown will be releasing weekly video episodes throughout the online community giving fans a glimpse of J.J.’s creative process, his relationships with hip-hop’s rising stars and how the album was created.
“With Reef’s album, A Vicious Cycle, near completion, I gave J.J. two tracks to remix and the rest is history.” says Well Done Entertainment Chief Executive Luis “Big Lu” Valbuena on how he connected with J.J. Brown. “His ability to push the envelope production-wise took everyone by surprise and once I had the opportunity to sit with him and Dan and listen to the new album, I knew that their talents were the right fit for where I’m planning on taking Well Done. To call this album incredible is an understatement. Nowadays, hip-hop audiences long for albums that are not disposable have true replay value. I’m confident “Connect The Dots.” will deliver to fans what they’ve been looking for with an album that is sure to withstand the test of time and satisfy even the harshest critics. I’m honored to have this album be among the first few to represent Well Done Entertainment and where I plan on taking the label.”
