Dabrye - Three/ThreeGhostly International
Hailing from Ann Arbor Michigan, Tadd Mullinix aka Dabrye wasn't sure if or when he would create another record. Twelve years since the release of "Two/Three" A case of writers block and family matters put his projects on ice. So it was a cause for celebration to discover he was back in the studio wrapping up his long awaited follow up. "Three/Three" fuses laid back electronic beats as well as gritty boom bap joints that made "Two/Three" such a highlight. Detroit is represented well by Guilty Simpson on "Tunnel Vision" while Kadence along with Intricate Dialect & Silas Green trade verses on the spacey beats of "Culture Shuffle". Shigeto, another Detroit Alum brings his diverse electronic sound with the funk deluxe "Sunset". Dabrye's connections extend well beyond Detroit with premiere rappers such as Ghostface Killah, Doom and Jonwayne jumping on board. "Three/Three" has a little bit of everything to keep your head on a constant nod. It's a huge gap between albums but Dabrye has picked up from where he left off and that's a boon for everyone.
