Dabrye is "Tadd Mullinix", a relatively unknown Intelligent dance music producer of some quite considerable ability. (His two albums are highly sought after, and incredibly difficult to buy). His closest comparisons would be "DJ Krush" & "Prefuse 73", mixing the beat programming of Krush, with the Cut N Paste (and Glitch) of Prefuse 73. But Dabrye isn't a weak copy of these artists, as his music, and more importantly his imagination easily matches (and in a few cases surpasses) his peers. Opener "Intrdctn" starts with a hypnotic bass kick sample, and delicate keyboards that instantly demands the listeners attention....but then fades out after 1:13 into the song, almost as if to say "This is just a introduction....this isn't what I'm going to use as full songs". "Won" holds a mesmerizing laid back trip-hop beat structure (think Nightmares on Wax), before halfway though, sounding out with a truly sublime flute sample that crosses over into Electronica territory. "Evelyn" coaxes a warm production from Dabrye, by subtly cutting up samples and layering in simple keyboards aesthetics with and thick and progressive drum kick that produces a sound a million miles away from Electronica's occasionally cold arrangments. The emphasis throughout the album is predominantly downbeat, with each track the soundtrack to a multitude of lounging late night tales. Undeniably quirky...resolutely unconventional, irresistibly catchy, and infuriatingly brief (the running time is under ½ hour), but almost certainly a abstract classic.

Taking in the rhythms deeply feeling the warm tones and juicy bass rumble my steps. I'm feelin some retro/new-skool hip hops. Yay I love it when people say "Dabrye is a graduate of the college of Scott Herren." Beats to git on up to! I couldn't keep from shakin my booty throughout, especially "won" and "evelyn" all in its brilliancy and depth within the beats.

Dabrye brings on the deep funk with his album Instrmntl, full of hip-hop beats and abstract electronics. Right from "Intrdctn" and "Won," there's a funkiness that's unmistakable as it is catchy. "Evelyn" throws some jazzy horns into the mix, while "This Is Where I Came In" is almost straightforward electro. My favorite track would be "D-Town Tabernacle Choir," a track filled with wobbly piano and solid beats. A good album, albeit rather short.
