Deepblak mainstay Damon Bell has revealed details of a forthcoming debut long-player on Aybee's label, which is due for release at the end of next month. On Blues for the Libyan, the Oakland, California-based producer is said to mix tradition and experimentation, varied African polyrhythms and future-dancefloor funk. Labelmate and recent PAN signee Afrikan Sciences lends his talents to LP cut "Lybian Ether," and vocalist Khalil Anthony features on opener "Chromosome Replacement."
Blues for the Libyan follows from a string of similar-spirited EPs on Deepblak, Do Over, and Sound of Speed, and will see an official release on June 29. Until then, album clips can be streamed below, where we've also included a complete tracklist.
