AraabMuzik is an MPC savant. I’m not sure how many hours of my life have been spent YouTubing clips of this dude doing crazy things with a sampler, but it’s too many to count and I regret none of it. Amazement is an underrated emotion and I’m not going to spend my life getting bored like Dunbar. Ten points to whoever names that literary reference. I can’t post every video AraabMuzik does, but you should watch all of them and buy his debut album Electronic Dream, which is getting rereleased today. Here, he demolishes three Skrillex tracks.
I’m not going to write disparaging things about Skrillex. I personally don’t like his music, but he is very, very popular. Even if I can’t find the reason for that, I’m sure there is one. I’m sure he received five Grammy nominations for reasons other than said popularity. I’m sure of it.
If you’re a person that does enjoy Skrillex, feel free to lay out why in the comments section and enjoy his typical remix of “Levels” by Avicii!
