AYBEE has unveiled his second short film, ‘A Message’ – the follow-up to his directorial debut, ‘The Gift’, which premiered at Washington DC’s Forward electronic creative culture & new media festival in 2015 and featured appearances by Levon Vincent, Fred P and Christopher Rau.

As with the prior film, ‘A Message’ is directed and scored by the Deepblak boss himself. The nine minute dialogue-free film was shot in a mysterious Berlin location unknown to the general population. A track from the Oakland producer’s forthcoming LP, set for release in Fall 2016, is featured on the soundtrack.

‘A Message’ is dedicated to the memory of Derrick Curtis aka Dreams From Last Night, the North Carolina-based Deepblak artist who passed away in July 2016.

“The film was originally supposed to be a lead into an upcoming project, but with the sudden passing of DFLN during post production I decided to make it a dedication to him. The film involves an encounter with a gatekeeper to the other “side” in the hopes of delivering a message.” – AYBEE

DEEPBLAK Label Nite in Berlin. It’s funny to think that we sat together in Afrikan Sciences apt. in Oakland in 2006 as a small group of sonic misfits trying to figure out a way to perform together. Life has a funny way leading paths away then back together, but here we found ourselves in my new home of Berlin for the 1st DEEPBLAK Label Night. It was a truly magical evening, and a cap to what has been an amazing year for DEEPBLAK. To be able to merge my worlds in a night of sonic travels, was something i will always cherish. Afrikan Sciences, and Damon Bell in from Oakland, along with my Berlin massive of Loganic & the mad scientist that is Onyx Ashanti… simply beautiful.

Smiles and vibes in the air…definitely a historic night. To ALL DEEPBLAK massive worldwide your energy/love was present. It’s so tough to put a whole evening into context, but here is a snapshot. Also an amazing glimpse at the end of the vid of Onyx’s stunning live performance.
