 First off my name is Dan Moore aka BLACNASHON ,im from Chicago IL..  My craft is making music.  

2. Now Blac Nashon, thats a dope production name, can you explain the meaning behind it? and how the name came about?

 Lol now that name I did some heavy thought..  I wanted it to be unique.. Something nobody used before.(Blac) stands for im proud to be black but I wanted that spelling .. (Nashon) stands for unity for black people... So that's how I got the name BLACNASHON 

3.What is you earliest recollection of music that you can remember?

I remember my cousin let me listen to some real hip hop like mobb deep.  Wu tang clan..  Tribe called Quest..  Krs one..  Pete rock. This was when I was in 6th grade.  I grew up in this stuff.  Mad memories!! 

4.Who were some of your earlier influences when you started production?

 on the real my guys made music on the Xbox.. Playstation..  To the mpc and Roland..  Loved how they chopped up music and lay them over drums.. junk was mad crazy when I seen it action..  Junk had me mad inspired.  It was on after that. 

5.Who are some of your current influences as of today?
 I have to say Pete Rock..  J dilla.. Kevin brown..and Roc Marciano..  Apollo brown. just to name a few 

6.Not to show age but what year did you start production?
 I started making music in 2014. 

7.What was that Moment or event that made you realize you had this gift of production?

 When I heard my guys making music..  I felt that music gift firing up in my spirit.   It was a string passion 

8. When did you decide to pursue your gift as a producer?

 When I got my Maschine micro. I Knew I should pursue. 

9.What was your brown sugar moment aka your fall in love moment with hip hop?

  When my guys made music cooking up music in the crib just Vibing out. 

10.Now You're from Chicago, what is the local scene like there?

 It's city life.. Fast pace as well. It's real live here..  Reminds me of the city  Detroit. It's lots to get into.  Such as networking etc. 

11.Does the local scene affect what and how you create your music?
        Not not really. I go based off what sample I hear. 

12. What is your creative process like in the lab? Not to show any sector seven stuff lol
         Man its one of two ways I start my process ..  I usually start with my drums., snare, hi hats, etc to give me a        feel.. Now that's first and foremost lol and second ill pick and choose a sample that best fits over the drums I just      laid.. I can go through 10 samples until I find that right sample to lay over my drums..  Im very picky..  I want it to       sound right..  At least in my mind it do lol..  And last ill lay a bass line if needed..  Thats my process in a                   nutshell..  Its simple and easy..  Nothing complicated 

13. How do you feel about the analog aka hardware vs software debate concerning production equipment? 
 Well it's hard to pick. You know the saying different strokes for different folks. Got to use what is best for you.. You     know!! 

14.What Does Your lab consist of? And how has your setup changed since you started?
 I got a keyboard  🎹.  My Maschine micro2/mpc and my laptop..  All i need and I'm straight. 

15.How Do You feel about Record Digging aka Crate Digging vs E-Digging aka internet digging?
Well to me it can be a slight difference..  Only difference is you can sit at home on the computer and                         DOWNLOAD w distractions.  On the other hand going out to a record store you might be able to find joints that is       not on the Internet and meet people in the record store to give you some input/advice on what you looking for. 

16.What would you say defines your signature sound?
I have to say I give all the honor to God for my sound!!!
