Deepblak Chief Connoisseur mon Bel, after years of several outstanding EPs, offers up his debut album 'ues For The Libyan"'. Staying true to his penchant for mixing African rhythms with dance floor aesthetics, the Oakland based producer weaves together a tightly-knit escapade thru his world.   Much like his long-standing DJ residencies at S.F.'s Make Out Room and Oakland's 389, Damon has built a solid reputation for his ability to traverse many sounds and genres in one coherent groove. 'Blues For The Libyan' follows suit as Damon melds experimentation and tradition into a palatable experience for the listener. Tapping into the talents of labelmate Afrikan Sciences for 'Rhythm Meat' and vocalist Khalil Anthony ('Chromosome Replacement'), the collaborations do well to further Damon's vision. having studied percussion in his youth, you can feel it's influence throughout BFTL, accompanied with Damon's tinge for a little future dance floor funk.   After receiving praise last year from luminaries such as Mary Ann Hobbs Damon's sound continues to gain in acclaim. 'Blues For The Libyan' will no doubt continue in that direction. We are very proud to present Damon's debut album here at Deepblak, and we hope that you enjoy.
