Dday One was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. 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’s thrift shops and record stores. Without a sampler at the time his first compositions were made by engaging in sessions of “dropping the needle” 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.
Loop Extensions represents Dday One’s debut long player, and what a debut it is. Dropping fluid beats and incorporating eclectic sounds, he builds a canvas of warm instrumental beats that catch both your ears and your feet.
When Dday first completed this album, he pressed up a few vinyl copies to spread the word. Within a month he’d had LA’s hip hop’s true underground king Mike Nardone playing tracks regularly on his radio show (We Came From Beyond / KXLU 88.9) and Cut Chemist requesting copies.
