Boomkat Product Review:
Debut full length LP steez from LA's Dibiase, following impressive drops for Fat City and All City records. Those releases called for comparisons with Madlib, Dilla and a whole heap of slump-funked producers who're taking inspiration from '80s boogiesoul and computer games; the ambient sound of half-remembered innocence. With these influences and adjuncts in mind Dibiase gives fifteen tracks of staggered MPC beats, perhaps erring more towards the electronic and ADD-afflicted style of Flying Lotus or Nosaj Thing, but always keeping an even keel of head nodders bounce. Your attention span won't be challenged as most tracks are in and out in under 3minutes, but those ideas will entertain the beat heads who love a good chop, from the sliced Nintendo samples of 'Circuit Breakin' to the swampy compressions of 'Lumberjack' and the murdered 8-bit saturation of 'Rengade Slap', a collab with Devonwho. Best of all however, must be the plastic squeeze of 'Clocked Out' and the crooked lazer synth calibrations of 'Life Force' primed for your next computer chair vision quest.
