THE ODYSSEY (2X12 LP)
2x12" Vinyl lp UK 03.02.17
deepblak’s chief alchemist aybee releases his fourth full-length studio album. the odyssey. as befitting its grand title. this newest long-player finds him concerned with personal journeys: both the personal one that has brought him to this point - living in berlin. 15 years since founding deepblak in his native oakland - and the one that beckons for him personally and creatively in future: aybee sees himself as being halfway up a mountain. looking back on where he has come from. and to where he will be headed next - both concepts play a profound role in the emotional textures of the album. which in true deepblak fashion draws from jazz. deep house. techno. hip hop. blues. experimentation. cinema. space. time and infinity.
