AraabMuzik – Electronic Dreams [NEW MUSIC]

araab muzik electronic dreams

So I know most of you on here know of The Diplomats. You know, the harlem hiphop group started by rappers Cam’Ron and Jim Jones. Well I heard the new single “Streetz Tonight” as my first AraabMuzik song and was just completely blown away by the killer composition and transitioning between hip-hop and dance with such ease. Turns out that Araab’s been rollin’ under The Diplomats for quite sometime and definitely making his mark as one of the illest producers in the game on an MPC. Having only been in the spotlight for a few years he is really starting to make a name for himself with the recent release of his solo debut album Electronic Dreams. Here’s the first track I heard and one of his top singles so far, “Streetz Tonight”

After hearing that track you sense that heavy hiphop influence throughout the rhythms and drums, while incorporating that ever popular trance synth the modern party scene looks for in a dance hit. This Providence, Rhode Island native has definitely bagged a new sound and something with much room to build on. I’m excited to have heard such an amazing album in Electric Dreams and I encourage you to check it out. This second track builds beautifully off the ecstasy of female vocals dropped into a sick hip-hop breakdown suitable for any listen experience. Here is “Golden Torch”

Sacred Animals : Welcome Home EP [NEW MUSIC]

Released Oct 1st 2010
Welcome Home Cover Art
Sacred Animals’ native Wexford to Dublin along the coast is a straight road, but veer a few miles off it and you find yourself up in the mountains. From the Sally Gap you can look out across Lough Tay hundreds of metres below and see the wind carving its way through the hills. “The energy is incredible – so primal. You realise life is pretty fleeting. But that’s kind of precious in a weird way.”
And the music’s precious too. It draws on the rich tapestry of styles and sounds that make this such a compelling time to make music but also draws from those hidden places – Darragh’s is not a completely clear vision of what the music is and might become. “It’s about everything that makes artists we love, people like Thom Yorke, Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) and Ed Droste (Grizzly Bear) create and then go back and explore. I’ve written songs for years and have always loved doing it. But when the songs start coming out like this, from somewhere I couldn’t always reach, that’s something really exciting.”
