"SLS artists go for ‘pure’ hip-hop" - Worcester Magazine

"Audio: AraBlak, The Deed"

Last week, I mentioned this free EP/sampler from the hip-hop collective Social Light Sounds. Afterwards, AraBlak sent me the complete version of "The Deed" (produced by DJ Manipulator) and, oh man, it only gets hotter when he brings the fire-breathing on the second verse. Check it out. -

"WYDU's Top 20 Chart (#1)"

Our first track to be at number one for back to back weeks. Props goes out to Arab Blak and DJ Manipulator, your plaque (read: construction paper made into a trophy) will be in the mail. What can I say about this track though? I was talking about that authentic hip hop sound a few tracks up, and this track embodies that spirit as well. The spirit of '94? Quite possibly, yet it still sounds fresh. DJ Manipulator laces a blaring horn sample over boom bap drums. Oh, and there is some nice scratching. All that doesn't sound like anything unheard of before, which it isn't, but it just sounds doper than most. Arablak sounds like someone else, who I can't quite put my finger on yet, but it's a good thing. He has mic presence, commanding respect and delivering his rhymes with the utmost confidence which just adds to the whole overall auroa of the track. I've been jamming track since first getting it a couple weeks ago. I'm definitely going to be checking for Arablak, Manipulator and the whole Social Light Sounds crew in the upcoming year. Props goes out to Manipulator for the full track. -

Writing lyrics since the age of 12 (approx 1991), Arablak is a well seasoned veteran in the art of emceeing. He grew up listening to and mimicking artists such as KRS One, Ras Kass, Wu Tang Clan, Onyx, EPMD, Redman, Bootcamp Clik, Nas, The Roots, Pharoahe Monch, Common, as well as numerous others...

A fan of hip-hop music primarily, it is his priority to make music that is exceptional, in a market where being average is the new standard.

Born and raised in Worcester, MA, he grew up fast, self educating himself in the perils of low income society, while still maintaining a healthy fascination for science, math and language skills. The "bright kid" in the back of the class, displayed constant disdain for authority and normality. Refusing to blend in, and made it a point to be different from his dress code, to his style of walk and speech... Arablak was Hip-Hop… A creative soul, drenched in the blossoming culture surrounding him. From the early to mid 90's, he was fortunate enough to grow amidst hip-hop's famed ‘boom-bap’ era.

Now a well rounded man, with experiences ranging from low income housing & early fatherhood to corporate America & middle class life, he is eager to unveil his art to any and all ears thirsty for some fresh, energetic music, created with quality in mind, and passion in the heart.
