It's easy to be dazzled by Araab's outrageous skill with an MPC. Sure, the guy knows his way around the buttons and knobs, but Araab's greatest skill is the precision with which he matches his samples to drums. There's no other way to put it, the man is a musician's musician. We were lucky enough to catch up with Araab after our show at Pop Montreal 2011 and spend some time with a producer who is surely only at the start of a long and successful career.
