araabMUZIK Takes On Sleigh Bells

I'm not sure how the @araabMUZIK and @sleighbells fall tour came about, but what I do know is we're all better off as a result of them touring together. I've seen Sleigh Bells open for LCD Soundsystem and I can confirm that they are one of the more raucous acts I've seen live. As far as araabMUZIK, his talent speaks for itself and I've tried multiple times to catch him putting on display his wizardry with the MPC.

Touring together is one thing, but araabMUZIK decided to take it a step further by mixing Sleigh Bell's latest single Never Say Die. Maybe it's because I'm a DJ or it could be because I've always had as much admiration for pure instrumentals as I do tracks with vocals. All I know is mixing loud dance-pop with a MPC driven Hip Hop beat is beautiful and something I never thought I'd hear. Genre-bending music is something I'll always be a fan of and this is the poster child for why.

If you're eager for some newness from araab, check out his latest track Runaway Bass. Oh and if you're in the area later this month, I'll see you at the show...#Bluebird
