Count Bass D & DTR: Making It Happen
DTR and Count Bass D Announce Exclusive Booking Deal
Another match made in hip hop heaven as we proudly announce our a new relationship with one of the industry’s longstanding pioneers in underground innovation – the legendary Count Bass D.
2015 marks two decades since Count Bass D’s debut,Pre-Life Crisis, hit the scene. Since then, the self-described “Fender Rhodes Scholar” has augmented his skills as a multi-instrumentalist by truly mastering the art of sampling as well as the art of intellect. Of the start of career he has said, “my goal was to show that hip-hop had so much diversity and we could consider it a legitimate art form.” And over the past 20 years he has proven just that through his ability to push the envelope both sonically and lyrical on records like Dwight Spitz (2002), BegBorrowSteel (2003) and Act Your Waist Size (2006); instrumental gems like Ear Regardless (2007), Handshake Vs Dap (2014), and Cloak & Dapper (2015); and through collaborations with some of hips hop’s most creative and avant-garde artists: MF Doom, J Rawls, Edan, and Blueprint to name a few.
Now Booking Dates for 2016 Count Bass D “Instantly New” National Tour
Despite his impressive catalog, it’s historically been rare to find Count Bass D consistently on tour. That is, until he teamed up with perennial road warriors Blueprint and DJ Rare Groove in 2014 on the highly regarded “Respect The Architect Tour“. The experience proved to be pivotal on many levels, the most important of which is the promise that 2016 holds a new full length album and accompanying 70 city tour entitled, Instantly New.
