Dabrye's first two releases, One/Three (on Ghostly) and Instrmntl (on Eastern Developments, owned by Scott Herren AKA Prefuse 73) were focused on the wordless beatscape as a mutable object. But "Game Over", the first single from the forthcoming Two/Three, is straightforward street hip-hop. The cut features a guest appearance by Detroit's Jay Dee aka J Dilla, legendary Slum Village veteran and producer for artists such as Busta Rhymes, De La Soul, Common, and A Tribe Called Quest. Also featured is Detroit MC Phat Kat who tears right trough the track.
The 12' features another new song, "Magic Says", a deep dub burner that nods to Mullinix's love of reggae groove. Dabrye is back with his unique interpretation of raw hip-hop -- a refreshing new look at a tried-and-tested style.
