Beyondjazz | Spotlight on AYBEE Mix | May 09
Last week Mr. Armon Bazile dropped his long awaited Aybee debut album. He has been producing and releasing tunes since the early 00’s though, so the time was right to have a look back at the man’s impressive discography so far. Over the years Aybee definitely managed to craft his own sound – whether he be making techno, broken beat of hiphop, it always shines through. Download (212 mb) | Playlist

Aybee Live At Nulife | Oct 2003
Aybee Live At Nulife | July 2003
This mix is truly special to me. My first time DJ’ing at the now fabled NULIFE Party in San Francisco. This mix represents the openness that the Nulife Fam curated. A special group of music lovers, and aficionados that came together to create a vibe that I will forever seek.
I remember getting on for the 1st time, and putting on my 1st record. People were looking at me like I had just shot someone. I thought to myself uh oh… Then someone came to the booth, and was like “What the hell is this? This song is Beautiful!” It is very very hard to find a gathering where people will roll with you musically no matter what emotional space your in, and these set of years were truly a blessing. Nulife is, and will always serve as an intricate influence on the way I approach things DJ wise. A truly magical, and influential set of years in SF. I hope you enjoy the mix.
