Download Mixtape For Free
Dave Cirino, DJ Statle, and DJ Kool Kid present Dragon Theory to the world to hear. Dragon Theory is a mixture of hip hop, new soul, and alternative music over creative lyrics and hooks, and is a true representation of the lane that Dave Cirino is creating. Dragon Theory is a metaphor for alternative hip hop and for the style in which Dave Cirino operates; not conforming to any rules or limits, rather making music from the heart. Dave Cirino rhymes over beats produced by J Dilla, 9th Wonder, Daft Punk, and Nero, along with production by himself and DJ Statle. What makes the album interesting is its lo-fi grass roots sound, in which Dave Cirino himself engineered going for more of an underground, "punk rock" mix tape feel. Throughout the process of recording and engineering Dragon Theory, Dave Cirino was listening extensively to "Brothers" by The Black Keys and "Thank You Happy Birthday" by Cage the Elephant. Dave Cirino states that the records gave him inspiration sonically to where he was trying to go. Dragon Theory is available as a free download on datpiff.com and an original version of Dragon Theory is available on iTunes Japan, consisting of the original tunes off the tape as well as 3 bonus tracks.
