Keen martial artist and a persevering Buddhist, Dabbla has been busier than ever since fatefully signing to and debuting on High Focus Records.
Building upon the success of his 2016 debut ‘Year Of The Monkey’ and the 2017 ‘Chapsville’ mixtape with DJ Frosty, Dabbla has been on the march promoting his own Potent Funk imprint along with material from his 2nd solo LP ‘Death Moves’, including his latest single entitled ‘FUTD’, premiering early last week on Complex and currently on rotation at Kiss FM.
Fellow founder and Potent Funk producer-in-chief Sumgii supplies a trademark, bass-driven monster of a beat for 'FUTD'. Dabbla works it like a fresh recruit at a third world sweatshop, fully furnishing the booming soundscape with candid and down-to-earth observations routinely punctuated by his personalised brand of geezerish London back chat.
Now that a string of singles from 'Death Moves' have been released including 'Flying', 'Spine', and 'Devil You Know', Dabbla is all set to unleash his second studio produced solo album. With production from the likes of Sumgii, Pete Cannon and Dirty Dike amidst features such as his respective Dead Players / Problem Child spars Jam Baxter & Illaman, talented songstress Eve Lazarus, and long time supporter of the UK hip hop scene, the chart topping powerhouse of a vocalist Rag'n'Bone Man, the album promises to be an original and special listening experience.
‘FUTD’ or, to give the track its name in full, ‘Fuck Up The Dance’, is the latest in the string of tracks to be lifted from Dabbla’s eagerly anticipated 2nd solo LP ‘Death Moves’, which will be dropping on Potent Funk on 1st October. A follow up to the animation short ‘Vines’ that was released back in July, the Pose Works video for ‘FUTD’ is a beautiiful celebration of sublime CGI at its finest. Both videos feature DBLA, the tiny robot attempting to unravel the mysteries of planet earth and its intriguing inhabitants. Be sure to have a gander below!
