Starting April 10th in Brooklyn, NY and ending April 26th in San Francisco, CA AraabMUZIK will be showcasing his inconceivable MPC skills across the US. With the backing of hip-hop icon Duke Da God and his imprint Duke Da God Productions , an overwhelming response to his last mixtape and a follow up to Eletronic Dream Pt. 1 on the way, AraabMUZIK remains to be one of the hardest working DJ/Producers of the year. Check out his brand new track “Motion Picture” and newest live version of the “The Prince is Coming” video that premiere on Billboard today, brought to you by TrillHD.com and L-R-G; a stripped down, mind boggling feature of AraabMUZIK on the MPC to help you gear up for the dates.
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, andKaskade.
