Coming off the release of “Machines Hate Me” and “Cakeology” L.A. beatsmith Dibia$e is back at it with another onslaught of head nodding neck snapping beats aptly titled Sound Palace. With the release of Sound Palace, Dibia$e, 2008 winner of Red Bull Big Tune Beat Battle, cements his status as a producer on the forefront of today’s LA beat scene. Dibia$e shows his incredible ability at crafting spaced out 8 bit Nintendo beats merged with a Dilla-esque smoothness and a South Central twist into a sound wholly his own.
Versions with flexi-disc are now sold out. Every volume’s 500-unit, strictly limited vinyl pressing features one artist and twelve tracks, but only 250 units will contain the thirteenth track — the eponymous “baker’s dozen bonus” — on a flexi disc. The LPs also come equipped with a 5×7″ postcard insert that features a photo of the artist’s workspace along with the equipment used in their music-making process. Visually cohesive and packaged with the utmost attention to detail, Baker’s Dozen is a series that speaks up for artists whose craft renders voices superfluous, whose instrumentals alone suffice to make a statement.
