+Aziz's RMDN Goes Global with the Start of Ramadhan

+Aziz is a Kuwaiti songwriter residing in New Orleans.

His first work SoHo Spirit, is a collaborative work synthesizing the experience of becoming immersed in the energy of Manhattan’s West SoHo neighborhood, which is accentuated by the presence of high-end brands like La Colombe and Rick Owens. Although trips to the Arabian Peninsula (Khaleej) region were frequent, the bulk of the album was performed and recorded in 250 Hudson St. where +Aziz built a near-idyllic lifestyle for a period of time stretching between 2011 and 2013.

He interweaves alternative rock guitar tones inspired by southern folk music against a backdrop of contemporary Middle Eastern percussion and beats. With an identity that oscillates between Arab-American and native Khaleeji, +Aziz is working across vocabulary from 90’s alternative rock and folk music.

His debut EP offers a uniquely textured voice, robust melodies, boisterous rhythms, and a variety of musical styles. He sings in English, Kuwaiti dialect and formal Arabic.

Kicking off with the Islamic holy month of Ramadhan, his debut single “RMDN” is in English and will be released June 17th. The single is inspired by the feeling of fasting alone and comes across as an ode to the inherent hierarchy of social media.
