ON-RADAR: Kill The Motherboard Announce Debut, Release “We Made It”

Grammy award winning producer Jack Splash has an impressive resume of work, having worked with notable artists such as, Kendrick Lamar, Solange, Alicia Keys,CeeLo Green and more) and has announced a collaboration with emerging singer/songwriter Jon Brown to form Kill The Motherboard. The pair will release their debut album, The Legend Of Picasso Jones, next year via Jack Splash’s own imprint, Fresh Young Minds, and have recently released the first single “We Made It” (ft. Ras & Taj Austin) from the collection. The material from Kill The Motherboard is said to stylistically vary from progressive R&B to hip-hop to new wave to indie-rock. “I don’t think that hip hop in its purest form can really be categorized,” says Jack Splash, “I mean, if you look at Kendrick’s music, it would be hard to confine it into one genre. It’s the same thing with OG’s like Outkast, Lauryn Hill, GoodieMob or CeeLo. I think with Kill The Motherboard, we’re just carrying on that tradition of music without borders.” Lyrically, the collaborative is to create music untraditionally. Brown, originally a rapper from Milwaukee, felt that he could further pour the emotions into his music with his inimitable singing voice – especially as he centers on the tragic murder rate of his hometown and racial inequality in his music.
