Future Classic: Dibia$e “Looney Goons”

Beats Hip-Hop

Brand new LP is coming from one of our favorite producers and good homie, California’s DIBIA$E. The 15 track project called “Looney Goons” is now available through the good people at FatBeats in collaboration with Dib’s own imprint called 10Thirty and it’s a really good one, take our word for it!

Beyond making really tasty headnod stuff one of the best qualities that Dibia$e has is that he has his sound. In 2012, lots and lots of people (too many) put out beat tapes and instrumental projects but not that many really have their own distinct voice. You can pretty much spot a Dibiase beat coming a mile away, just like you can spot a Ras G, Samiyam, Apollo Brown production… and that’s a good thing!

If you like Dibiase’s crunchy production then this you definitely won’t be disappointed. I’ve been hearing tracks like “OMG !!!” and others in his live sets and it’s great that it’s finally out. The project is really well rounded and touches on a different genres while keeping the headnod factor at 10. I strongly suggest you start by grabbing a free download copy of the sampler below.
