Derrick Anthony Brown II is a Producer/Dj known as dAbII (pronounced dabtwo) from Albuquerque, NM in the US. He had always been into Electronic music, from being introduced to it at young age by his mother, but never tried going anywhere with it. After going to his first rave at the young age of 14, he was introduced to the Electronic scene of New Mexico but still producing music or becoming a Dj never crossed his mind. During his teenage years he grew up around the Hardcore Metal scene of Albuquerque but still attended raves as the rave scene was growing quickly. Even though he was very into the Hardcore scene and was also good at “screaming” he never made a real attempt at joining a band. He was more into the “breakdown” aspect of metal. At the age of 19 in 2008, he was introduced to Dubstep by a close friend and producing partner named Craig Ford that produces under the name cFo. That was the first time he had ever thought about doing something with music. But, at that point it was still only a thought. That is when he started watching the Djs, started to pay attention to who was producing what, who was spinning what, and became very familiar with the Dubstep Scene obtaining at around 2 weeks worth of Dubstep. Then finally, at the beginning of 2010 he decided, it was time. In February of 2010 he purchased Fl9’s Signature Bundle. At that time he said to friends and family," Just give me one year and i’ll make it somewhere. Making a couple beats a week with no prior producing experience, he just spent time learning the insides of Fl9. November 8th of 2010 he released the track I Love Justin Bieber as a Free Download on Soundcloud and that is when he just started to be noticed by listeners. The track was promoted on Youtube channels TurnThatDamnMusicDown and DubFuckinStep. The very next month his girlfriend Markie Wood, purchased NI Massive for him. He released multiple tracks over the next 2 months including Making the Magic Happen, The Bad Guy, and 3 Excision Remixes. Then mid February he created the track Pure Creation. Somehow off that one track 6 other tracks were produced creating the MindFuck’d EP. Only the track Samara was released as a free download on SoundCloud and the others waited for a label to possibly want to pick them up. Exactly one day later he was recieved a message from Karen from TwistedBeats saying she may know some labels that may be interested in releasing some of his tracks off the MindFuck’d EP. The following day he received a message from Matt Whittet, the Label Manager of Twisted Energy offering to release track on his label. Now officially being signed by Twisted Energy, he has no intention of slowing his roll. His SoundCloud is quickly growing, he’s being promoted by Youtube Channels from around the world, and constantly producing new tunes. Give him another year. He just wants to mind fuck the shit out of you. With his unique, heavy, glitchy, hardcore dubstep, described by FadeCounty as, “BABY-KILLING, PRIEST-RAPING DUBSTEP GENOCIDE,” be sure sure to catch him at dub show near you in 2011.
