DabryeDabrye is just one alias of Michigan’s Tadd Mullinix who shifts through various guises with remarkable competency and sophistication. As Dabrye, Mullinix explores hip-hop, creating head-nodding beats with bass lines that reference jazz and electro in equal measure.

It is a combination that has earned considerable praise from both the hip-hop underground and artists such as J Dilla, Jurassic 5 and the US music press, with publications as diverse as Urb, Rolling Stone and the Wire all singing his praises.

Dabrye - Two/ThreeHis debut Dabrye album, ‘One/Three’, appeared in late 2001 and was followed by the mini-LP ‘Instrmntl’  for Scott Herren’s (Prefuse 73) Eastern Developments label. Both records earned glowing reviews for their rhythmic innovation and minimalist execution. The next step in the Dabrye path involved calling on Detroit legends J Dilla and Phat Kat, to MC on his single Game Over back in 2004 – which was an early glimpse into this hotly anticipated album.
The sheer quality of the willing collaborators who feature on this album serve as a benchmark to the high standards Dabrye has set for ‘Two/Three’, with appearances by MF Doom, Beans (Anti-Pop Consortium), Waajeed (Platinum Pied Pipers), Vast Aire (Cannibal Ox), Wildchild, Guilty Simpson and many others. The album will be followed by a summer tour with Percee P of Stones Throw.
