DEEPBLAK Label Nite in Berlin. It’s funny to think that we sat together in Afrikan Sciences apt. in Oakland in 2006 as a small group of sonic misfits trying to figure out a way to perform together. Life has a funny way leading paths away then back together, but here we found ourselves in my new home of Berlin for the 1st DEEPBLAK Label Night. It was a truly magical evening, and a cap to what has been an amazing year for DEEPBLAK. To be able to merge my worlds in a night of sonic travels, was something i will always cherish. Afrikan Sciences, and Damon Bell in from Oakland, along with my Berlin massive of Loganic & the mad scientist that is Onyx Ashanti… simply beautiful.

Smiles and vibes in the air…definitely a historic night. To ALL DEEPBLAK massive worldwide your energy/love was present. It’s so tough to put a whole evening into context, but here is a snapshot. Also an amazing glimpse at the end of the vid of Onyx’s stunning live performance. ~ A

AYBEE at Plastic People London

AYBEE Soundcheck at Plastic People (London) 2013

Was an honor to grace the decks at the now Legend that is Plastic People (LDN). No speakers visible. All Speakers built into the walls surrounding you… never saw anything like it. Immersive sound no matter where you were standing. Needles to say DJ Deep and myself thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Bless to Alexander Nut, and crew for the invite. Glad to be on the right side of a History. – A

[ FILM ] AYBEE VLOG | 7906 | SoN’y Rays

A few moments from the 1st SoN’y Rays which is Deepblak’s quarterly gathering diving into LIVE cosmic beats, rhythms, and space travel from the Deepblak cast & fam. Here are a few seconds of what was an amazing set up of Afrikan Sciences, AYBEE, LA Beat Master Dibia$e, and EPS1 of Blaktroniks all wired to jam LIVE. Unfortunately our videographer had to cancel so we don’t have much footage, but you can get an idea of the mode… prepping for 02 stay locked.

A few minutes from the “The Bandwagon Podcast” at Halcyon in Brooklyn. Myself, Fred P., JD, and the mighty Jay Locke holding it down for a few hours. Pursuit Grooves came thru, and shared a few words about her upcoming Deepblak debut under her “91 Fellows” moniker. It was great day with stunning weather in NY. Great people, space, and music. Respect to Taimur, and the Halcyon staff for having us out.

[ FILM ] AYBEE VLOG | 7904 | Secretsundaze London (2012)

A few moments from the Secresundaze 2012 season opening party. A truly amazing day, and great music by All involved. Secretsundaze purveyor’s Giles Smith & James Priestly opened and closed the day off class fashion. Did not film any of my set as totally forgot about my cam til the end of my set. Started filming after, and captured bits of Wbeeza’s amazing (LIVE) set along with the mighty Deetron after. So good to connect with London Fam. Definitely a day that will be replayed in my mind for years to come. Love Respect and Power to ALL involved.

[ FILM ] AYBEE VLOG | 7902 | Anatomy of a Good Weekend

Weekend runnings that start off Friday night with two of my favorite people in Dibiase & Nasrockswell of 10-Thirty Records. Grabbed a nice dinner (thanks Nas!) before Dibiase’s show with Tokimonsta, and Knxwledge. Got a chance to rap about Dibiase’s Bulls, and my concerns about them in the playoffs… Saturday I connected with Ron Trent who was in town for a gig. Good times per usual. Started work on our follow up to I.S.P’s “Across The Universe”, and was recommended a few unseen Boondock’s episodes the Ron suggested I allow into my conscience… Saturday night I caught Brendon Moeller performing LIVE in SF. He was laying down some great sounds, but unfortunately my vid did not come out to good so it did not make the Vlog. All in ALL a good weekend always begins, and ends with good people… here are a few moments.
