Legend is a word that gets thrown around quite a lot when it comes to music, but it's one that we're happy to use to describe the amazing AraabMUZIK. If you are a fan of early-mid 2000s U.S. hip hop and R&B, then you have most certainly heard his work. AraabMUZIK has produced hits for Busta Rhymes, Dipset, Fabolous and Cam'ron, and a quick scan of YouTube proves that he is an absolute monster on the MPC.
AraabMUZIK is playing a live show at The Glasgow School of Art on December 2nd.
It's an early show, as the union venue shuts at 12 due to a lack of a late license, but that won't hamper the atmosphere. If you are a fan of live electronic music, there's no reason to miss this live set. Whilst most hip hop producers garner a wealth of samples from soul, jazz and funk, AraabMUZIK takes a heavier inspiration from more recent electronic styles, making him not just your average hip hop producer.
We strongly recommend you check him out at his December 2nd show. See you there.
