[DBR-V026] Octo Octa – Further Trips EP

Brooklyn based producer Octo Octa aka Maya Morrison comes to Deepblak after releasing some of most stunning House tunes of the last few years. Her “Further Trips” EP shows off her knack for lush rich grooves, and melodies that are intoxicating in nature. The drive, and atmosphere of Morrison’s productions are what led Deepblak’s AYBEE to her work. All 4 tracks put these ingredients on display as they speak to the head, and the feet. After serving as secret weapons for AYBEE over the past few months Deepblak is proud to finally share the “Further Trips” EP with the rest of the world.

[DBR-V025] Damon Bell – Blues For The Libyan LP

Damon Bell - Blues For The Libyan

Deepblak Chief Connoisseur Damon Bell following years of several outstanding EP’s offers up his debut album in “Blues For The Libyan“. Staying true to his penchant for mixing African rhythms with dance floor aesthetics the Oakland based producer weaves together a tightly knit escapade thru his world. Much like his long standing DJ residencies at S.F.’s “Make Out Room” and Oakland’s “389” Damon has built a solid reputation for his ability to traverse many sounds, and genres into one coherent groove. “Blues For The Libyan” follows suit as Damon melds experimentation, and tradition into a palatable experience for the listener. Tapping into the talents of label mate Afrikan Sciences for “Rhythm Meat” and Oakland based vocalist Khalil Anthony (Chromosome Replacement) the collaborations do well to further Damon’s vision of polyrhythmic dance. Studying percussion in his youth you can feel it’s influence throughout “BFTL” accompanied with Damon’s tinge for a little future dance floor funk. After receiving praise last year from luminaries such as the BBC’s Mary Anne Hobbs, and NYC’s Dope Jams crew Damon’s sound continues to build. BFTL represents Damon’s most outstanding statement to date of modern electronics mixed with traditional impulses. Culminating an authenticity, and honesty that is a breath of fresh air in the present space.

DBR-D021 | AYBEE and Trinidadian Deep – Contact

Prescription/Future Vision label mates AYBEE and Trinidadian Deep join forces to continue setting the pace for all that is deep. A peerless slice of futuristic deepness Contact announces the arrival of a new definition of the deep/electronic dance experience.

Feeling this groove 100%, the artwork is excellent as well. The cut is deeper than daniel day-lewis drilling for oil in 19th century mid-west and captures the essence of a well crafted deep house track with many layers being brought together impeccably. Good job. – Mickey Blanco (Visions UK)

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!
Atjazz/Mantis

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 (Beyondjazz.net)

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)
