[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

Saturday 3.26.11 Afrikan Sciences took the helm of Oakland’s trailblazing party thePeople. Bringing to close a beautiful month that celebrated the arrival of Afrikan Sciences heralded 1st album “Means and Ways“. To see this performance in front of the home crowd further elevated the drumbeat that many are starting to catch wind to. Oakland is mapping a new territory onto it’s self in regards to all things Deep/Electric and Soul. Something Indigenous, something Beautiful, something Other. Massive love to ALL that participated in this evening. We are Deeply moved… A Historic night indeed.

How an East Oakland native creates space for techno.
By Zoneil Maharaj

As head of the innovative Oakland-based label Deepblak Recordings, producer Armon Bazile always has his eyes wide open to the pulse of emerging music in the Bay Area. “The musical underground railroad is rumbling,” he said. “There’s some brilliant stuff going on, especially here in Oakland. A lot of people are taking chances again.” But for Bazile (aka Aybee), it’s been an uphill battle without armor. Read Full Article >>
