DiBia$e Wins Red Bull Big Tune Los Angeles

June 21, 2010

Hi-Res, Style Misia, DiBia$e, Tauras, DeUNO, DJ Finyl, G Rocka, and Captain did battle at Los Angeles Red Bull Big Tune Event. Congrats to DiBia$e for the win and the nicely layered Patrice Rushen sample flip.

Random Thought:
Plenty of air keyboard and air drums, but nobody plays air guitar anymore?

See more footage after the break!

yeah shouts to my man dibiase. i actually got the honor to battle him. cool cool dude.


mymanhenri June 21, 2010 at 11:43 pm

Good Look Dibi. Caught him @ the National Final in 08 in NYC. Glad he’s on his way again.


ClearBlue June 22, 2010 at 1:28 am

MAD PROPS to see you showing the homie Dibiase some love…This dude is my favorite producer right now and he is about to blow up, so happy he is getting the respect he deserves.


niceguyxvinny June 22, 2010 at 3:44 am

man that day was so dope lots of good producers
but the homie dibiase killed it.


D-MarZ June 22, 2010 at 4:05 am

not really feeling any of those beats at all…


Michael June 22, 2010 at 8:24 am

Same here.


Slum1 June 22, 2010 at 11:20 am

Dibi is good but he on Dilla Jock…


dibia$e1 June 22, 2010 at 3:25 pm

u dont know dilla music obviously comparin me to him. i been makin beats at a high caliber since 97 startin in 95 and i have cassettes and 4track tapes with proof of that and didnt have dilla has a reference then because alot of his music wasnt floatin around. alot u cats just started mentionin dilla after donuts came out.


extrahustle June 22, 2010 at 4:53 pm

Good Lookin out on clearin that up Dibia$e! So many people in hip hop jus runnin off @ the mouth with no background information. Jus emotion tied into comments that have no relevance. I’m an artist who recently picked his hand @ producing 3 years ago and I’m never turning back. I kno the knowledge and grind it takes to bang em out like you do. So let the haters fall by the wayside…

Much Respekt from Canada



Dj ILL One June 22, 2010 at 5:30 pm

Word Dibia$e! Hip hop changed your life. Dilla changed you T-shirt!


dibia$e1 June 22, 2010 at 10:35 pm

true words.yeah man definitely that 3 years will turn into 6 years and so on, and youll add more to the arsonal and learn more. so definitely keep on with it. respect!!!


crox July 21, 2010 at 8:46 pm

dibiase works as a janitor in southgate. lol.


D-MarZ June 22, 2010 at 7:15 pm

Every producer who visits this site is obviously influenced by Dilla, at least a little bit. The dude was a genius that made great music. Dibiase, you make some pretty hot shit and Dilla obviously influences your style but you definitely have your own distinct sound. Most producers sound comes from all their favorite producers combined into their own distinct style…. Im not afraid to say that I try to make music like Dilla… Thats the kind of music that I love!!!


dibia$e1 June 22, 2010 at 10:28 pm

naw i appreciated that homie acourse there’s a lil dilla in there but what i listened to everyday b4 i was makin beats was alot of tribe called quest first 2 albums , and epmd and alot of erick sermon who had basslines as well b4 and them loose drums, and alot of vintage wu and pharcyde which dilla did few joints on. but its a combo of alot of the greats and stuff u wouldnt expect that influenced me


T-Mos June 22, 2010 at 10:47 pm

hahahaha yo i can’t wait to meet you in chicago mang. good shit in L.A.


Ike June 22, 2010 at 11:26 am

3:10 1st beat with the Bishop from juice sample…… i know that sample…….


Altruwest F Major June 22, 2010 at 11:40 am

I think that this video clip doesn’t do justice to Dibiase’s sound, he played this one Gospel track that had everyone going wild.


ImTrumaine June 22, 2010 at 2:36 pm

dibiase is that guy….and captain got joints too dont let the dance moves fool ya haha



yeahwhatever June 22, 2010 at 2:46 pm

All the beats at this battle sucked. No Soul. It’s like using big corny sounds is supposed to make up for the fact that the beats suck. Too bad I see this at every battle, and the idiots in the crowd love those beats.

At least Dibiase won. He actually brought some dope shit.


Altruwest F Major June 22, 2010 at 3:05 pm

But they paid to see the battle and voted for what they liked the best….that has to mean something. They cant all just be idiots….


dibia$e1 June 22, 2010 at 3:15 pm

funny when i was makin beats in 95 with drums that swing just not as techical acourse. i wasnt gettin compared to dilla back then most of yall who do this on dilla jock foundout bout dilla donuts era . so b4 u sound like an idiot slum1 do ur research. i had a catalog b4 the detroit sound was popularized. i have many styles some of my muisc is in the electronic genre. so when somebody come with a standard boombap drum pattern r they ridin dj premiere. and for the record doods in dilla’s camp arrove of me. think b4 u speak slum1 like to hear ur beats probably full of rigamortis ill bet money on that.


Neal Helton (Daysun) June 22, 2010 at 3:35 pm

You do not have to prove yourself D. Your jonts are sick.


Semantik June 22, 2010 at 3:36 pm

Agreed. Don’t feed the trolls.


DJ Slum1 August 20, 2010 at 12:56 pm

Yo, your a good producer maybe my wording was harsh but you are definitely influenced by Dilla, no need to type out essays denying that lol. I never questioned your credibility or talent. For the record I was on to dudes music before donuts, where not gonna start playing that hip hop elitist game now are we? Humble your self kid…


dibia$e1 June 22, 2010 at 3:32 pm

oh yeah buy my records cause i actually have internatonal labels who release my music worldwide. doing much then chasin a placement haha


D-MarZ June 22, 2010 at 7:20 pm

Dont listen to these dudes on here man… They are just haters man… They mad that ur doing big things and they arent…Ur shit is crazy man… keep doin what you do… Yo what equipment do you use for your beats man? An MPC??


P.B. June 22, 2010 at 3:42 pm

Its so hard to read some peoples comments on here.
Try putting a few full stops and some grammar in your sentences.


Dj ILL One June 22, 2010 at 5:33 pm

Dibiase has a dope ass beat he did using the price is right. It was played on a Rhodes. He freaked it sooo hard it`s crazy. I`m glad t osee him advance again. He is one I would not like to go up against.


Sjef June 22, 2010 at 8:07 pm

I liked the part of Dibiase, where he had that intro “i aint poppin, i aint dancin blablabla”..

F*ckin producers trying to make their beats better with their dance moves..
Haha wtf!…….


juiceboxjackson June 22, 2010 at 10:26 pm

Man, nobody talkin about that G Rocka beat they played?? My brother and I both looked at each other when his beat came on like “this sounds like some G-Unit shit”


woowee June 23, 2010 at 6:02 am

If Dibiase is reads this, I’m curious if you play any instruments? And to what level of proficiency?


dibia$e1 June 23, 2010 at 11:18 pm

shit i wish i played drums i definitely want to learn but that may take im just all machines at the moment


DJ Ian Head June 23, 2010 at 10:10 am

dibiase wins for not doing stupid dance moves.


Michael June 23, 2010 at 1:04 pm

Why am i a troll if I don not like the beats I hear :/ sorry if it offended anyone.


Decapitatah June 23, 2010 at 3:54 pm

they weren’t talking about that….they were talking about the dilla comparison to dibiase


rokwell June 23, 2010 at 8:02 pm

Yeah Was up with the Dancin? Get ready for my Homie Ro Blvd Hes bout to blow.

Dibia$e knows who im talkin about!

Congrats on the win.


dibia$e1 June 23, 2010 at 11:30 pm

ahhh man dancin is just another element, but captain used to krump dance b4 he was makin beats. the krump circles is dope to me got a few vids on youtube playin beats at a session . just standin stiff to the beats is not a good look either,but its all fun at the end of the day. none of us went to julie arts or alvin ailey for ro blvd . on the come up love supreme g yeah !!!


fc June 24, 2010 at 4:55 am

ill leave the dancing to the brothers wit the funny haircuts.
dope beats esp that pat rush flip.


Matt E June 24, 2010 at 8:45 pm

never really understood the Redbull beatbattles myself, but I gotta say – the fact that this dude Diaba$e needs to defend his sound is baloney – that’s the problem with the internet, everybody is an expert – can’t a dude just win something and not have to explain his whole history?

anyways, going by what I saw, he easily had the best beats anyways

@Diaba$e – learning to play instruments isn’t that hard, just takes a while – the way I’ve always looked at it is that you can always do what you’ve been doing while you learn something new on the side – if you can make beats, you can play instruments


sigh June 25, 2010 at 2:46 am

why is it that hip hop producers are always so behind when it comes to electronic beats…?

they should have the advantage in the actual beat department of beat making, at the very least. this kind of reminds me of the dj battle scene when everyone started juggling jungle, and drum and base beats after that stuff was already stale. i say this not to knock anyone’s skill level, but just the opposite, to suggest they do a little more homework and push things a little more if they’re going to dabble in more electronic beats.


dibia$e1 June 25, 2010 at 9:14 pm

yeah i feel u, but thats redbull decision for the cdj’s. alsothe reason why i had a backpack on many people ask why baffles me i had my sp 404 in there, and down to sequence my beats live on the spot which wouldve been a first for redbull battles at least. definitely wouldve treated that battle like one of my live sets


undertow June 25, 2010 at 8:14 pm

Gotta say these comps are a pretty good idea…we need em in NZ.

Does anyone know if Captain has a myspace account or a soundcloud etc?



dibia$e1 June 25, 2010 at 9:15 pm

twitter/urcaptain is his contact


BOSSMAN818 June 26, 2010 at 2:13 am

The Beats Bang much Props To dibia$e1 you get Down West Coast up in here

Supabad June 27, 2010 at 12:37 am

Juney June 27, 2010 at 7:46 pm
Illiam D July 3, 2010 at 4:49 pm
