Square Wave - A Love Mix For Mr. Dibia$e
Unless you're real into this sort of thing, you probably haven't heard of Dibia$e, a producer from Watts, California who absolutely kills beats.
His records Up The Joystick and 2010's Machines Hate Me are some of the most hard-hitting 8-bit sounds to date, and Sound Palace and Swingology 101 call upon influences like Pete Rock, Diamond D, El-P, and truly build on those men's work.
Here's a mix of Dibia$e tracks from all his records that I know exist, except for the free release Green Llamaville which I can't get my hands on - Kim Dotcom's fortress seems completely impenetrable.
Note: I realize that I mixed in "Mega Gutta" twice--a mistake, but it's a dope track so why not.
1. "Clocked Out"
2. "Deep Winter"
4. "Mega Gutta"
5. "Sun City"
6. "Circuit Breakin"
7. "Mega Gutta"
8. P.U.D.G.E. - "Satta Marijuana"
9. "Say Word"
