Categorizing Shabazz Palaces is nearly impossible. The Seattle group led by Palaceer Lazaro (aka Ishmael "Butterfly" Butler formerly of Digable Planets & Cherrywine) has surpassed all genre confines and captured the imaginations of spectators.
Containing a sublime mixture of funk, jazz, dubstep and structures un-echoed by the typical style of 16 bar hip-hop. Shabazz Palaces quickly gained critical admiration following an unprecedented string of epic performances across their home city.
Shabazz Palaces' music is defiant in the face of musical norms both in terms of sheer musicianship and lyricism. Experimental, innovative and irresistible, "Of Light" is sure to be heralded by listeners not satisfied with the status quo.
