DJ and producer Humble Dinosaur has been cutting his teeth in his local scene long enough. Possessing an edgy and innovative combination of Dubstep and Drum & Bass, it was only a matter of time before his self-released tracks made onto a mixtape or compilation and the world outside his hometown of Bridgeport would take notice. Now, as the 23-year-old sensation gathers up his ever expanding collection for a proper album release and tour, Humble Dinosaur is ready to take his music to the next level.
Growing up in Top 40 Radio friendly Bridgeport, Ct, Greg Brown credits his father for keeping him on point musically with great records and a discerning taste. Years back, when Brown was introduced to Dubstep by a friend, his discerning ear fell for the heavy lows and percussive clamor of the style. Feeding that need with an already steady diet of Hip-Hop and Drum & Bass, Brown began to invent his own brand from the mix and Humble Dinosaur was born. Incorporating everything from hardcore and punk to electronica, Brown's exacting taste is equally matched by his open mind and melting pot appreciation for every genre. Humble Dinosaur's own experimental creations, often crafted on the fly during live sets, never sound the same twice as the DJ's taste and mood change as often as the tracks on the turntables. Throwing in samples and melodies culled from his keyboard, he keeps his rhythms slamming with a supernaturally low Dubstep few can match.
Like any great DJ, Humble Dinosaur is pushing boundaries and showing off something new in his diverse and dizzying mix of music. And though he's by all means a modest personality, he's still a carnivore, aggressively shaking the walls and blowing the roofs off the clubs without a moment's hesitation. Lately, he's been gearing up for an eventual release and has already popped up on samplers here and in the UK, but at this point his self-released tracks are sustaining on a word of mouth fan base. As the young artist reaches a broader audience, it's hard to imagine him underground for long. And when the world eventually does excavate Humble Dinosaur, things will never be the same.
