Mr. Dibbs has become one of the most respected and innovative turntablist/dj style producers in the game. Last year Mr. Dibbs died for approximately 53 seconds, one short month after the quiet release of Deadworld.
Held up in the hospital for a few weeks, Dibbs was an inadvertent resident of an impromptu hip hop retirement home. Battling leukemia on the floor above him was his longtime friend Marcus “Skandal da Ruckus Man” Mitchell. An epic MC and producer, of equally epic bodily proportions, Skandal’s heart was big, but his production skills and lyrical largesse were even bigger.
Mr. Dibbs was found… in the strong lifeline we’ve all come to know and love as Skandal. Skandal lost his life in October last year, but even thru his passing he made Dibbs feel important enough to be reborn. ‘Deadword Reborn’ was digitally released last november with all procceds going to Skandal’s daughter. Now for the first time ever ‘Deadworld Reborn’ is available in physical form as a 12″ picture disc vinyl. Limited to 1,000 hand numbered pieces and featuring a long list of artists and producers including Brother Ali, The Black Keys, Grayskul, Murs, JEL, Skandal Da Ruckus Man himself, along with many more.
“I’m not so good at this so, bear with me. I would like to personally Thank you for your purchase of Deadworld Reborn. A dear friend of mine passed last year and this record turned into my way of preserving his memory and giving a little piece of Marcus (Skandal Da Ruckus man) Mitchell to each and every person who hears it. The vinyl version of Deadworld Reborn is extremely special to me because vinyl (in my opinion) is forever. Its a living thing. It will feel, sound & effect you differently every time you play it. That being what i believe, Marcus will live forever through this release. Thank you for being a part of it…
