Deepblak Recordings was founded in 2001 by Producer/Visual Artist AYBEE (a-b), with the intent to create a home for all things Avant-Garde, Kosmic, and Soul. Whether Electronic, House, Hip Hop, or Techno Deepblak does not conform to any one label or Genre.
Tapping into the creative, and 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. The quest 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 a host of musical muses whom he respected, in 2001 he felt the time was right to step out into the world.
Pulling from the depths of the Blak Music experience while armed with a progressive production ethos, the Deepblak sound began to establish itself in the realm of the Kosmic, and the forward leaning. With the label starting out digital in the early 00′s they took advantage of 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 releasing music in all its forms. Keeping the sound somewhat familiar, but oddly refreshing.
Now after more than a decade Deepblak has been attached to a steady stream timeless music, and established itself as one of the more well respected labels around. With hubs in Oakland (US), and Berlin (DE) Deepblak continues to push forward into expanding the Sound. The focus strives ever upward, and onward towards expanding the dialogue. ^
