Concert: AF the Naysayer
Amahl Abdul-Khaliq is AF THE NAYSAYER – a flourishing producer in the electronic and instrumental hip-hop world. Within the last two years this New Orleans-based, Los Angeles-bred producer has dispersed his atmospheric productions across 70 cities and at over 300 shows in the US alone. His sound has been categorized as “electrifying soul-hop” whose core is best described by Atlanta producer DISTAL as, “Layered, intelligent design with a simple and easily digestible delivery.” His collaborations in New Orleans have led him to become the ambassador for Red Bull Music Academy, as well as the founder of beatmaker showcase Dolo Jazz Suite. AF has toured with artists such as Durazzo, Prism House, and Sports Coach, and has opened for Glitch Mob, Om Unit, Quantic, Lapalux, Young Fathers, and the 2016 Mad Decent BUKU Party (feat: Yellow Claw, NGHTMRE, Louis The Child, and Jazz Cartier).
AF has also kept busy by lending production on “Mackerel Sky” (feat. RoQy TyRaiD) from Mega Ran’s Billboard-charting album “RNDM”. Within the past year, AF has remixed Taiwanese hip-hop group Juzzy Orange, Brooklyn R&B/hip-hop outfit Phony Ppl; and earned a spot on Spotify’s 2016 Fresh Finds playlist with his edit of Boyfriend’s, “Company Ink”. If you havenâ€™t jumped into AF THE NAYSAYERâ€™s world yet, now is the perfect time to become part of the experience.
This concert runs from 11:55pm-2:30am.
