Are Danny Brown and TNGHT working together? This studio footage suggests they might be

Danny Brown, one of rap’s most effervescent breakthrough stars, recently made his debut appearance on these shores.

Promoters Livin Proof hosted the Detroit firebrand back in June, staging a show at XOYO and facilitating a riotous appearance at the Boiler Room. A camera crew tracked Brown going about his business, throwing up some thrilling footage of both live appearances. There’s also some backstage footage of a convalescent Brown that suggests ‘Die Like A Rockstar’ might not have been too far off the mark after all.

Particularly exciting, however, is footage of Brown (plus partner in crime Darq E Freaker) up in the studio with minimalist beat heroes TNGHT. No rapping, unfortunately – the video just shows Messrs Mohawke and Lunice playing Brown a series of beats – but it’s surely a strong hint that there might be some collaboration underway between the two powerhouses. TNGHT have talked about already having rappers in mind for their instrumentals – could Brown be one of them? Speculation aside, it’s a cracking watch.
