Deepblak Recordings was founded in 2001 by maverick Producer/Selecta AYBEE (a-b), with the intent to create a home for all things avant-garde, and soulful. Whether Electronic, House, Hip Hop, or Techno Deepblak does not conform to in any one genre.
Tapping into the rebellious ethos of his native Oakland, CA, AYBEE had little choice in plotting the direction of his creative outlet. In 2000 he found himself increasingly dissatisfied with the sounds he was hearing amongst his musical peers. These quests for the sound inside him lead him into production. Disappearing from friends, and relatives for a year AYBEE explored this new creative pursuit. Getting encouragement along the way from musical muses whom he respected, in 2001 he felt the time was right to step out into the world.
Pulling from the steep tradition of Black Music while armed with progressive production, the Deepblak Sound has carved a niche for itself in the realm of the deep, and eclectic. Being born digital the label seized the opportunity to build a worldwide rapport with an audience seeking new sounds. This conversation enabled the label to continue on a path left-of-center embracing soul in all its forms. Keeping the music somewhat familiar, but oddly refreshing.
Now coming into it’s own Deepblak is focused more than ever on propagating the sound, and empowering a worldwide community of soul explorers. Receiving support from selectas around the globe Deepblak has put Oakland, CA on the map of all things deep.
