AraabMuzik, Electronic Dream
2011 | Label: Duke Productions / The Orchard

AraabMuzik makes hip-hop that, heard from any other vantage point, sounds nothing like hip-hop. He made his name as a producer for the credentialed likes of Cam’ron and Jim Jones, but the tracks on his own debut album sound more like…trance? Phantasmagoric pop? Accidental overlays resulting from different YouTube-playing browser windows fighting to be heard, at once? It’s a strange sound. But it’s also immensely appealing and approachable, as evidenced by an opening track, that… read more »

he's just a live act

elrod

this album would be cool if it wasn't for the voice overs, tracks cut short and the cheezy beats towards the end of the album. First track is sick, but it's cut short like a promo album. The whole thing is promo tracks, not worth buying. He needs to put out a solid album and maybe he would blow up, but this is ridiculous. The whole schtick of araabmuzik is his wicked fast hands on the MPC.

Just sounds like grime

Anyone who listens to british electronic music will place this firmly in the grime and post dubstep world. Kind of hilarious that the 'official' review missed that completely. Trance? uh.... no! Grimey instrumentals at danceable BPM's.

Nice music and I gave it four stars. Would have been five, but I got tired of hearing, "You are now listening to AraabMuzik" on every song. Mr. Muzik, I don't think that we need to be told that on every track.

nice record but...

This edition is missing the key track #2 Streetz Tonight (as does thedeluxe version listed on emusic). It's rather disingenuous to change the track count (this is very likely the label's decision here and not emusic's fault at all) to make this look like it's the full release. However, the main release of the record has 11 and not 10 tracks and track 2, the most highly regarded track, is just absent.

Six Degrees of Rusko’s Songs

By Philip Sherburne, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

New This Week: Lana Del Rey, Leonard Cohen & More

By J. Edward Keyes, Editor-in-Chief

Hey, have you guys heard anything about this Lana Del Rey person? I feel like no one's talking about her. What I wouldn't give to find out any information on her. Seems real mysterious. Well, whoever she is, we have her record and a whole lot of others today. Let's go! Leonard Cohen, Old Ideas: Seriously, I think we all just need to take a pause and revel in the fact that there is a new… more »

Hip-Hop’s Future Shock

By Hua Hsu, Contributor

Thumb-tacked to the wall of my room in my parents' house is a list I printed out in the year 2000. Hiphopsite.com, an online hip-hop record store had produced a list of the 100 most anticipated releases for the upcoming year. I've left it on my wall partly out of laziness and partly because of how chastening it is to recall the days when an N.W.A. reunion album or a DJ Premier-produced Terror Squad album… more »
