“DIBIA$E [has] devised his own dynamite comprised of J Dilla descended moonlit soul, G-funk’s south L.A. swing, and the dusty cartridge and epileptic flashes of 8-bit Nintendo music.” -- Los Angeles Times Entertainment
Multi-time finalist of Red Bull’s prestigious Big Tune Producer Showcase, DIBIA$E has been honing his musical talents for over a decade within LA’s influential beat scene.
DIBIA$E has managed to emerge from a sea of talented peers with his own unique sound, a sound that has been recognized and sought out by some of hip hop and electronic music’s most influential: Guilty Simpson, Elzhi [Slum Village], Abstract Rude, Battle Cat, DJ Premier, Flying Lotus, Geoff Barrow [Portishead]; to name a few.
DIBIA$E’s newest release is a change in direction away from his better known soulful “Dilla-esque” slightly off-kilter sound. Looney Goons is a unique blend of traditional boom-bap, dirty south trap music, dub-step, edgy electronic undertones laced with familiar hood satire.
