It has taken Todd Mullinix a little longer than expected to complete the trio of Dabrye albums begun with 2001’s One/Three, but he’s got there in the end. To make up for the wait the Ann Arbor producer serves up near-twenty tracks of envelope-pushing hip-hop. His first two LPs influenced the likes of Flying Lotus, Harry Fraud and Paul White, and the video-game clatter of Three/Three bangers ‘The Appetite’ and ‘Emancipation’ shows Mullinix can still kick it. The guest features read like a who’s-who of Real Rap Guys - Ghostface, Danny Brown, Guilty Simpson, you get the idea.

Ghostly International serve up a remastered version of Dabrye’s seminal 2001 One/Three to drop concurrently with the producer’s new LP Three/Three. Often cited as one of the most important beat-tapes of the early millennium, One/Three offers so much more than mere Dilla tributes. Todd Mullinix’s background in IDM and jungle means he pays great attention to detail on the ten tracks here, while the sounds of the producer’s native Michigan get a bit of grit in One/Three’s eye.
The third track from this record (No Child Of God) was, apparently, on a mac & cheese 'commercial' in 2015. Kind of cool being as this record was released in the early 2000's when the hip-hop scene was well and truly in full swing. Instrmntl by Dabrye has been granted a reissued from the mighty powers that be on Ghostly and is available on vinyl LP.
Luxus Steroid Abamita is a double-sized record of experimental machine music from Charles Manier, the project of Tadd Mullinix. You could probably dance to most of it, but only if you can weave yourself past the many dense layers of fizzy sound: guitars delaying into the distance, overcranked synthesizers, tape manipulations. Yummy. Out on Bopside.
