AYBEE, founding member of the vanguard label DEEPBLAK, known for his trademark "inner knocking" jumping off the rails House and Techno style, dips into his o1o beats alias to heat up, count ‘em, five foot-in-the-dirt dirties with Notes on Astro Liberation Theory Vol. 1. For the past seventeen years, the Oakland raised and now Berlin-based producer has released music independently, by open-minded thinkers such as co-label head Afrikan Sciences, Octo-Octa, Pursuit Grooves, and Damon Bell just to name a few. The label, an outliers vision of electronic music, reflects all the microclimates and hues that others forget. Whether those great swings hit or miss, the intent remains dead focused on “something else."
On Notes, these abrupt slaps, gone in eleven minutes, rapidly advance in cyclical rhythmic design, hitting nearly everything unexpected, not nailed down to the floor. With "Lying Snake Lips" we get Skynet cold funk paranoia and "I Called U" sketches out the sexy compressed haze of what missed connections gon be like in the future. This audio treasure chest of what's popping on the Oakland streets in the year 2150 gives us a "can't wait" shit-eating grin for future "red beans and comets" compositions.
