AYBEE | i-D Magazine Mix

Promoting stillness through sound, Deepblak Recordings is the visionary label releasing left-of-field soundscapes and entering subliminal voids with their omnipotent rhythm.

Placing an emphasis on dance-floor inspired soul, Aybee describes the paths he uses to discover new talent as “a natural evolution of musical dialogue, that takes place organically between a family of artists.” | Read full interview >

[FUR039] o1o (aka AYBEE) – A Futurespective LP

Once again I connected with Seattle based Further Records for the “o1o – Futurespective” album. In line with Deepblak’s 10th anniversary “A Futurespective” is a collection of some of Further label head Mark’s favorite recordings by myself under the “o1o” moniker. o1o is short for (Oaklands 1 and Only) and is the name I used when producing at a slower tempo. When Mark pitched the concept you know I was ALL-in. Per usual with Further the record is put together with gorgeous screen printed Artwork with a Limited Edition of 300 shipping worldwide August 15th. I hope you enjoy this project as much as we did putting it together.

Love, Respect, and Power

Deepblak | Summer Releases and Movementz…

Much to cover so i will get right to it. We are half way through Deepblak’s 10th year, and i have had little time to breathe. Here’s what we have upcoming. June 7th the “AYBEE – 11:11 EP (DBR-V007)” hits stores on vinyl. I just received the Testpress from the “o1o – A Futurespective EP (FUR009)” coming on Further Records realease date (tba). July brings Afrikan Sciences much heralded project to vinyl with the “Means and Way’s EP (DBR-V008) “ with additional remixes. In August Malena Perez and AYBEE debut as the group “Traveling Phoenix” to drop the “The Ascenion EP (DBR-D030)”. As i type i am finalizing a project with Miles Sagnia for his Atmospheric Existence Label which should be hitting stores mid-summer.

September brings Damon Bell with his “Kush Musik Wax EP (DBR-V009)” also with additional remixes. Rounding out September is the “10 Years of Deepblak CD (DBR-CD001)” celebrating some of Deepblak’s pivotal releases along with a few new gems. Deep breath…also be on the lookout for an AYBEE remix coming on Tsuba for Ethyl & Huxley ‘Reflexions’, and the long awaited Blak Punk Soundsystem (Ron Trent & AYBEE) EP on Future Vision. Ok now that i got that all out…back to work. Blessings to ALL
