Aybee is from Oakland, California and is a visionary artist, producer, label boss and visual artist.
Aybee's ten year musical history includes working with Ron Trent and the legendary Presription label in Chicago ( as the Indigenous Space People, and Blak Punk Soundsystem). He also has worked with Osunlade's Yoruba imprint and many more. His family history goes back much further to his grandfather who ran a New Orleans jazz label and disco imprint in the 1970s.
Like Jamal Moss (Hieroglyphic Being) and The Belleville Three (Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson and Derrick May) science fiction and futurism is a strong influence for Aybee. Influenced as much by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Frank Gehry, or writer Dr Seuss as much as his peers Levon Vincent, Fred P, and Jus Ed.
Aybee's own Deepblak Recordings has developed a progressive, cosmic and avant-garde vision of dance music. As one of the most innovative and forward thinking producers around his work includes his ground breaking East Oakland Space Program, Ancient Tone, and his critically acclaimed Worlds LP. Deepblak is also the home to cosmic afro-futurists African Sciences, and Damon Bell.
This very special art + sound record is housed in a 12" x 24" Tom Howey lithoprint art piece printed on translucent polyester.
