TrapJazz Showcase Vol.1: Ma*Jid Khaliq’s TrapJazz And Game.Set.Trap


Sunday August 25th Doors @ 8 Show @ 9

game.set.trap is jazz music for today’s generation. hip-hop is becoming a big part of the sound of jazz culture, a music that grows and develops with each generation as an expression of their struggles. Upholding a tradition from swing music featuring tap dancers, game.set.trap keeps elements of jazz aesthetic while finding innovative approaches to play trap hits, trap-soul, and golden-era classics with arrangements on trap hits, classic hip-hop, and modern soul music.

Three time Downbeat Rising Jazz violinist @Ma*JiD ecstatically celebrates the release of his newest album, Sound of a Flower. The culmination of an eight year journey, Ma*JiD will perform selections from the album joined by special guests Squala Orphan (Brooklyn MC/Guru’s Jazzmatazz Alum), Sfumato Symphony Orchestra, and Cyrus Aaron (acclaimed Poet/ Activist/TV Personality).

Ma*JiD’s music is defined by its angelic string sounds, aboriginal electric bass grooves, lush harmonic textures layered with a combination of acoustic/electric sounds and its heavy hip-hop influenced drums. The album itself is music that chronicles the development of jazz music from a New Orleans juke joint, a highly technical musical view of a modern city, a gospel bound violin with orchestra in a great hall and a socially conscience street anthem with the trap music swag to match.
