Two-fisted funk from Dwele, who not only releases his long-awaited album Greater Than One today (cop it like it's hot) but also apparently felt moved to bless his fans with the 11th hour (25th hour) release of a free mixtape called Dark Side of The Mic. Possibly D from the D felt the need for a two-fer simply so he could have an outlet for all the guilty pleasures--Zapp-style autotune, rapping a Slick Rick tribute in faux-British accent over the infamous "Fall In Love" chords, messing with the possibly expensive-to-clear breaks like "Look Of Love" and "Footsteps In The Dark"--that maybe you want to leave off your official joint. Consider this 7-track mixtape (stream or download below) to be the extremely enjoyable DVD extras to the LP. To watch the feature presentation, go purchase Greater Than One on iTunes now.
