Dabrye

Air

After the unanimously praised ONE/THREE album, the sound of Dabrye (AKA Tadd Mullinix) permutated into its most distinctive form for the “Game Over” single, a head-nodding concoction of handmade sub-bass kicks and soaring drones anchored by vocals from Jay Dee (AKA J Dilla) and Phat Kat.

“Air” is the second and lead-in single from TWO/THREE, offering up a killer combination of crime-thriller synth ascensions and shuffling percussive whacks behind the words of shit-hot lyricist Doom, who gets self-reflexive in a sharp flow about the creation of the track itself, continuing the themes of identity and integrity that have guided his career.

Backed by a gutteral remix by Dabrye himself, “Air” is set to be a standout single, balancing the lyrical dexterity of one of hip-hop’s most revered MCs against the unabashed analog sounds of a producer whose future notoriety is all but certain.
