Shabazz Palaces

Shabazz Palaces

Curated by Shabazz Palaces

Shabazz Palaces have always drawn inspiration from the heart and human instinct; the Seattle-based hip hop voyagers produce transcendental albums from an intuitive frame of mind. ‘Black Up’ was fiercely poetic, whereas ‘Lese Majesty’ felt as spiritual as the free-form sci-fi dreamscapes of Sun Ra and Alice Coltrane. With their two upcoming ‘Quazarz’ releases on Sub Pop, Ishmael Butler and Tendai "Baba" Maraire are set to embark on their biggest celestial quest yet.
