1173800_862655060861_197749184_nWith full swing, AF THE NAYSAYER’s debut solo release, “Imagerial Denouement,” broadcasts what the producer does best: innovative, thought-provoking beats.

An ode to Japanese hip-hop producer Nujabes, “Imagerial Denoument,” – with its A-Side featuring lyrics by Myka Nyne (of Freestyle Fellowship, Project Blowed and Haiku D’Etat) and the crisp instrumental on the B-Side –builds on a bluesy jazz base and taking a page from the musicians that fill New Orleans jazz clubs, expands to explore the space until the listener is left with a deep pool to sink into.

A native of California, Amahl Abdul-Khaliq, now splits his time between the towns of Lake Charles, La. and the boisterous New Orleans where he’s become an indispensable part of the Crescent City’s burgeoning electronic producer scene.

Despite flying under the radar outside of the New Orleans and Baton Rouge areas – except music featured in a string of BMX videos – Abdul-Khaliq has produced laidback, funky beats for several years,
always eclectic and never sacrificing tonal complexity or elaboration in search for rhythm.”

The “Imagerial Denoument” 7 inch vinyl single was released physically and digitally via ReSERVED Records on March 19, 2013.
