The man who pioneered such innovative styles as dub-hop, broken beat and dance noir does it again with a collection of sounds that is altogether shocking, alarming, caustic, controversial, nonconformist, deranged, eclectic, and unclassifiable, but always dope. (As in, this ain't no unlistenable so-called "avant garde" bullshit. This shit is bangin' dun!) Sorcerer of the sonic realms, Spectre takes you on a journey to the Fringes, where all things are possible and where the future of hip-hop meets its past. Be warned, you have stumbled upon a glitch in the matrix, but Salvation is your own choice.
Dday One was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. He has a double major in hiphop as a turntablist and samplist. He also has a minor in graffiti art (as do most b-boys), noticeable by his signature. His obsession with manipulating vinyl records started in the early 1990's, when at the age of 11 he began exploring the depths of Los Angeles' thrift shops and record stores.
Without a sampler at the time, his first compositions were made by engaging in sessions of "dropping the needle" (placing the needle repeatedly in the same spot of a record to emulate the repetition of a break in a song) and repeatedly looping the desired sample segments on a tape deck. After using this method of creating beats and amassing stacks of records from years of beat mining, he furthered his manipulation of vinyl and love of music by utilizing the sequencing capabilities of a sampler.
