[DBR-V010] Prof. Delacroix – Build Her | Remixes

Prof. Delacroix aka AYBEE


As our Ten year Anniversary comes to an end we take time to revisit Prof. Delacroix’s deep classic ‘Build Her”. Initially released in ‘07-08 “Build Her” received massive support from Deep selectors across the field. Finding it’s way onto DJ Deep’s “Tronic Jams Vol.1”, and a permanent place in the crate of Osunlade.

Two of my favorite producers in Fred. P and Afrikan Sciences bring an added perspective to this time tested piece. Fred brings a painfully beautiful soundscape to the table while Afrikan Sciences weaves a rhythmic masterpiece. I was very happy to have these cats touch “Build Her” as I know they were big fans of the original. So I knew they would touch it with Love. I could not think of a more perfect way to bring 2011 to a close than to have the Bredren remix one my biggest pieces to date . I hope you enjoy. Love, Respect, and Power Always. ~ AYBEE

[DBR-D022] AYBEE – East Oakland Space Program

Deepblak Chief Alchemist AYBEE unveils his window into the world known as the East Oakland Space Program. This highly anticipated solo album from AYBEE pushes rhythm, and beats far beyond the expectations defined for the urban experience. This project carves musical space for something uniquely Oakland, and resoundingly cosmic. On this trip the talents of Erik Rico, Paul Randolph, Afrikan Sciences, Blaktroniks, and local siren Karyn Paige join AYBEE. In true Deepblak mode all styles are open, avant-garde, and forward. Enjoy

This album is dedicated to the many faces that are swept away by the streets in silence. For those that remain understand that there is a better way, a higher frequency that can lead you to the greatness of who you truly are. I hope that you open your ears, and soul as we journey inward through the Rhythm.





Visionary! – Fred P. (Black Jazz Consortium/ Soul People Music NY)

Aybee’s 2008 release “Blacktropolis” was one of the most pleasant surprises to blare out of my speakers. “East Oakland Space Program” builds on the soulful futuristic sound that has made Aybee a visionary to be reckoned with. “EOSP” contains thirteen heart pounding tracks that will dive deep into your body and force you move to the hypnotic rhythms. The disc begins with “Hidden Treasures”, a deep pulsating groove reminiscent of the early Detroit techno sound. “Windows” is a warm, atmospheric deep dish that’s anchored by the earthy arrangements by Aybee and the vocals of Karen Paige. Another winner is “No Mystery” featuring Paul Randolph, whose deep vocals are a perfect match for Aybee’s spacey compositions. “Love Of” and “Ozzie Davis” are the kind of deep house jazz tracks you’ll love whether you’re on the dance floor or just lounging. “EOSP” is full of funky beats, hip vocals and gorgeous rhythms. This is another quality recording from the Deepblak label that will provide definite satisfaction.
