[DBR-CD002] Deepblak – TEN

So here we are at the end of 2011 another amazing year, and the close of Deepblak’s first decade. It is impossible to put into words what has transpired over the last 10 years. So many changes accompanied with so much growth. What started out has a creative refuge developed into a path of rhythmic/self exploration. Opening doors to higher truths that within themselves became inspiration to continue the path. A path that has led us to this present moment with you. In this moment I hope that what we have said musically up until this point serves as inspiration. Inspiration to do if nothing else give you the courage to listen to your inner voice.

Our CD compilation “Ten” is a collection of sentimental favorites from the last decade. These songs are not necessarily our most popular, but were selected because they represent certain pivotal emotional points in the story of the label. For many who are new to Deepblak “Ten” serves as a “Hello” giving them a brief snapshot of the last decade of our sound.

We have learned so much yet still have so much to learn. We thank you for this moment, and we hope that you will tag along for the next stage of our evolution…

Love Respect and Power Always!

DBR-D020 | Deepblak presents BLAKTROPOLIS vol. 1

V/A – Deepblak presents BLAKTROPOLIS

In the not so Distant Future these are the sounds of BLAKTROPOLIS the city of Soul and Sound

Freshest shit this year, off the meter!

Yes I. Dope shit as usual!. Love especially the Aybee rmx of Dozie.
– Enrico (isoul8) Archive/Neroli

The DOZIE I have been playing for months on the show – KILLS me everytime, so much soul, emotion, feeling in the delivery !  Its been a big favourite of mine in 2008.
– Mickey Blanco (Visions UK)

The 3-track teaser I got sounds dope again: the very dark, futuristic and industrial ‘Solaris’ venturing in the techno/IDM space is my absolute favorite. This would fit just perfect with those fly-by scenes of Blade Runner! There’s also a great Aybee remix for Dozie’s soulful vocals on ‘Sensuality’, and the experimental breaks of Afrikan Sciences in ‘A Decision’. My ears are eager to hear more!
– Lensco (

Just when I thought I had heard everything, along comes a disc out of nowhere to truly mess my head up. The music I’m referring to is Blaktropolis Vol 1 from Deepblak recordings. This compilation features futuristic soul in an array of styles from house, spiritual jazz, tribal and broken beat that will have you asking yourself, “Where did these guys come from?”
– Reg Dancy, 10/08 (Basic Soul, UK)
