Since catching mainstream ears as the skinny Providence transplant behind the Diplomats’s reunion track, “Salute,” AraabMuzik has been at the forefront of recent efforts to mash dance music and hip-hop. His latest solo release, For Professional Use Only, includes the type of bass-heavy club joints that had ravers going wild at last week’s Ultra as well as the creeping beat he contributed to Swizz Beatz and A$AP Rocky’s underrated “Street Knock.” And, he’s even better live, turning his MPC into a Pandora’s box of sounds, synths, samples, and (most of all) drums. Tonight, he comes to Output, Williamsburg’s newest dance venue, for a party promoted by MeanRed Productions.
