Erik Vincent Stephens (born June 20, 1980), better known professionally as Apollo Brown, is an American record producer from Detroit, Michigan, United States.[1] He is a member of the hip hop group Ugly Heroes (alongside Red Pill and Verbal Kent)[2] and has released numerous collaborations with the likes of Guilty Simpson, O.C., Ras Kass, Skyzoo[3] and Planet Asia.

Early life

Brown grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He later moved to Detroit in 2003, after graduating from Michigan State University.

Musical career

Brown's career in music stretches back to the mid-1990s, but it wasn't until 2007's Skilled Trade beat collection that things started to become serious. November 3, 2009 saw Brown win the Red Bull Big Tune Championship[4] and he was subsequently contacted by Mello Music Group's Michael Tolle to become a part of MMG independent hip hop movement.

In any collaborations, Brown insists on making albums in the same room as the other artists.[5]

Style and influences

Brown is noted for his use of dated technology – a DJBooth interview reveals his preferred setup is a desktop PC running Windows XP and Cool Edit 2000.[6]
