Donell McGary (born ????), known professionally as Dibiase, is an American alternative hip hop producer from Watts, Los Angeles, California.[1]

Career[edit]

Dibiase released his debut album, Machines Hate Me, on Alpha Pup Records in 2010.[2] Pitchfork Media gave it 5.8 out of 10,[3] while Resident Advisor gave it 4 out of 5.[4] Before doing music, he made a living as a graphic artist.[5] Unlike most hip-hop producers who use the Akai MPC and SP-1200, he primarily utilizes the SP-303 and SP-404 installments, for they provide a gritty lo-fi sound.[6][7]
