For over a decade, Shafiq Husayn has been making his way through the alternative LA hiphop scene. Gaining prominence with the Sa-Ra Creative partners, the hiphop-, soul- and r&b-producer later produced an album for Erykah Badu, and even won a Grammy for his work on Robert Glasper’s “Black Radio”. A first solo record arrived in 2011, and 2018 finally saw the release of follow-up “The Loop”. It’s a further exploration of the mix of hiphop, jazz and soul that Husayn introduced to the scene all those years ago. He invited a quite impressive guestlist to join him on the album as well: Flying Lotus, Erykah Badu, Thundercat, Anderson .Paak and Kamasi Washington all add their own unique talents, which are given space to shine thanks to the great production. The show at Botanique promises to be a psychedelic trip through past and future, that could have only come from LA.
