Featured Araabmuzik stories

Usually, especially during the weeks where I liked a K-pop video or two, I do my best to explain what, exactly, I enjoy about the videos I list here. This week, though, Scott and I are on our way out the door to Stereogum’s Range Life party, which is about to start. That means I… More »

It’s finally come to this: The first straight-to-Spotify Stereogum Monthly Mix. It’s the end of an era, and I’m a little sad about it! But it’s a necessity in 2013, and one that will serve this feature well. In theory, over the past three years, this mixtape has functioned to spotlight and memorialize the month’… More »

Last year, right around the time summer turned to fall, we at Stereogum published our list of the 40 best new bands of the year. The idea of a “new” band is a pretty nebulous one, since many of the kids we listed were probably planning out their musical ventures in their basements since they… More »

Sleigh Bells – “Never Say Die (AraabMuzik Remix)”

It just makes sense that Sleigh Bells and AraabMuzik are spending their autumns touring together. Both of them bring to live some combination of pop, dance, and horrible, scraping noise. And both have sweaty, intense, physical live shows. And for some sense of the epic heaviness these shows might bring, here we have Araab chopping… More »

Azealia Banks – “Succubi”

For such a new rap-scene face, Azealia Banks certainly loves throwing darts at her more-established forbears. She’s had a ton of icy words for T.I. already, and on her new song “Succubi,” Banks throws snarls at Dipset capo and fellow Harlem native Jim Jones. (They’d already been Twitter-beefing over which of them called him/herself a… More »

Danny Brown & AraabMuzik – “Molly Ringwald”

As part of Yours Truly’s Songs From Scratch series, Detroit rap firebreather Danny Brown and MPC-bashing producer AraabMuzik recently linked together, banging out a hard-as-fuck new track called “Molly Ringwald” on the spot. And it’s a real testament to how talented these two guys are that a song like this can emerge in such impromptu… More »

Over the long weekend Detroit hosted the Movement Electronic Music Festival, an event that featured people like Public Enemy, Major Lazer, SBTRKT, Araabmuzik and many more in the city’s Hart Plaza.

DJ Kay Slay – “60 Second Assassins” Video (Feat. Busta Rhymes, Layzie Bone, Twista & Jaz-O)

Usually, a new commercial track from New York rap scene fixture Kay Slay would not be a thing you’d need to notice. Kay Slay, for all his mountains of credibility, is a man with some bad ideas. He is, after all, someone who permanently attached himself to Papoose’s career and who convinced Fat Joe and… More »

Araabmuzik – “I Remember”

Earlier this year, Providence MPC wizard Araabmuzik released his solo album Electronic Dream, on which he co-opted and grime-ified some of the moment’s most cheesed-out Euro-house uplift anthems. Today, he releases a deluxe edition of that album. It features six new tracks, and we’ve got one of them below. Listen to “I Remember,” Araab’s reworking… More »

Cam’ron – “Motivation”

Before he found renown an an MPC-smashing producer-auteur, Araabmuzik got his start crafting diamond-hard bangers for the wizened Harlem rap weirdo Cam’ron. And the two are still at it. “Motivation,” a track from Cam and Vado’s forthcoming Boss Of All Bosses 3 mixtape, finds Cam spitting dense tough talk and threatening to make a sequel… More »

CMJ 2011: Class Superlatives & Our Finest Photos

We’re on the other side of CMJ now, which you could probably tell by the uptick in the music news cycle, or by some bloggers’ (could be any bloggers, no way to know who I am talking about) bleary eyes and corresponding level of risibility. Stereogum threw a couple of parties early on, then shifted… More »

The Big Pink – “Stay Gold (Araabmuzik Remix)”

Last month, we posted the video for “Stay Gold,” the latest blearily anthemic single from British duo the Big Pink. The Dipset-affiliated, MPC-abusing rap production auteur Araabmuzik has new remixed the song, pulling it into a noise-rap universe that’s not really all that far away from the Big Pink’s usual wheelhouse. These guys have some… More »

Fool’s Gold Day Off (A-Trak, Araabmuzik, Juicy J, Et Al) @ City Winery, NYC 9/5/11

Though the sound system was never totally en pointe, or though the fact that many of the featured rappers didn’t do much actual rapping, yesterday’s Fool’s Gold day off was a pretty fun scene punctuated by many interesting moments, ranging from bizarre to stupendously entertaining. The day’s events featured sets from pint-sized beat banger Araabmuzik,… More »

Araabmuzik – “Streetz Tonight” Live Video

Those familiar with Araabmuzik’s tendency to go apeshit on an MPC might be a little underwhelmed with the video for Electronic Dream’s “Streetz Tonight,” but for those not as familiar it still serves as a fitting primer. Araabmuzik goes about his business, holding down a hotel room in this surveillance cam-style clip for Pitchfork’s SurveillanceMore »
