Takeshi Records daily downloads – Day 3 ‘Dabrye’


We round off our daily mp3 giveaway from Takeshi Records with a Dabrye remix of Vast Aire and MF Doom.

This track was originally released in December 2008 by Takeshi Records as part of their Powerful Beacon 7″ series, another track from which we showcased in day 2 of our giveaway. The series aims to reintroduce classic hip hop joints by having them refixed by modern beatmakers and producers such as Samon Kawamura and Dabrye among others. Each 7″ release features a vocal and instrumental mix, and the series will be compiled into a CD later in 2009. There are currently 3 releases in the series: a Kaman Leung remix of Doom’s Viktor Vaughn project, Samon’s remix of O.C and Dabrye’s remix of Vast Aire and MF Doom’s ‘Supafriendz’. The series features artwork from Ryo Matsuoka, a Japanese painter who has put together a rather grabbing series of paintings for each 7″ as you can see from the image above.

This Dabrye remix is a rather classic affair, but still hits the spots as Dabrye’s beats often do. Round these parts he’s definitely one of our favourite producers and it’s releases like this that continue to keep him at the top of our list. Some dubby, bugged out hip hop with samples flipped in ways you thought weren’t quite possible. For more on Dabrye peep the myspace and some of his recent releases including a contibution to the Fat City Producer series. We’re still waiting for part 3 of his album series in the meantime!

For now though enjoy the Dabrye’s instrumental mix of Vast Aire and MF Doom ‘Da Supafriendz’, out now on Takeshi records’ Powerful Beacon series. Stream it and/or download it below and stay tuned to Takeshi’s myspace for news on the next releases in the series, which I think includes a 9th Wonder remix of Digable Planets, which could be another one to watch out for if you ask us.
