Biography All Music Guide

All Music Guide:

A producer capable of using the Akai Music Production Center (aka the MPC, a drum machine and sampler) on the fly, AraabMuzik was inspired by the likes of Dr. Dre, Swizz Beatz, and Just Blaze but is known to incorporate samples from high-gloss trance singles into his output. The Providence, Rhode Island native creates hard-hitting beats swathed in dramatic strings, spiked with repetitive piano and synthesizer vamps, and switches between stripped-down and layered arrangements to equal effect. During the latter half of the 2000s, he broke into the Dipset camp, where he contributed productions to tracks by the Diplomats, Duke Da God, Jim Jones, Cam’ron, and Vado, and he went outside the crew to assist Capone-N-Noreaga on 2010’s The War Report 2. The same year, he issued a mixtape of instrumentals, a volume in the Instrumental Kings series, and followed it in 2011 with Electronic Dream -- a dance album featuring samples of tracks by Jam & Spoon, Ian van Dahl, and Kaskade.

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.

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 »
