Recently featured in Under Armor advertisements, recording artist, AraabMUZIK has his own signature style, putting a unique spin on the world of hip-hop. His preferred style is to create songs with fast rhythmic touches; an interpretation of hip-hop that is unheard of and loved by listeners. Consequence of Sound says AraabMUZIK’s “2011 debut, Electronic Dream, bridged gaps among various strains of rap and EDM plus the outskirts of indie-ville.” The album was also featured on Pitchfork’s “Best New Music” list, describing his sound as a mix of “freelance beats that hint at a fully developed personal aesthetic.” His mix of rhythms and carefully chosen samples provides for an awesome, unforgettable performance, both in studio and live.
Brooklyn-based Das Racist is known for their use of humor, obscure references, and unconventional style. Featured on the cover of Spin Magazine in 2011, this self described Hare Krishna, hard-core rap, folk-music trio has established themselves as one of the most interesting groups in music today. In 2011, after releasing their album, Relax, the group was named in many year-end “best of” lists, including Rolling Stone’s and Spin’s lists of “Fifty Best Albums of 2011.” It was also landed fourth on Spin Magazines’ “Rap Albums of the Year.” Das Racist’s distinctive style makes them one of a kind, defying all previous notions of rap and hip-hop.
