DON’T SLEEP: Dibia$e “Sound Palace” [NEW UPCOMING PROJECT]

Back in May when we did SFS #43 with Dibia$e we discussed the forthcoming reissue of “Sound Palace”. “Sound Palace” began as a CD he & Nas Rockswell sold on tour and direct to the fans via hitting up his email. At the time we weren’t at liberty to discuss the label involved back then but it was Fat Beats. The re-issue of “Sound Palace” now comes with 18 tracks as opposed to 14 and it has worldwide distribution. It drops December 13th so pre-order your copy of “Sound Palace” through UGHH & Fat Beats right now. Be on the lookout for “Swingology 101” and his beat on Fat City’s “Producer #3 Part 3” 12 that drops on January 16th, 2012. Support 10thirty Records & Green Llama Music. DON’T SLEEP!
