The Jazz Café, Cam­den 

We are excited to present the UK debut of Shafiq Husayn – musi­cian, pro­du­cer, song­writer, and record­ing artist who has worked with some of the top artists in R&B, hip-hop, soul, funk, and bey­ond.

Best known as one third of innov­at­ive Los Angeles music­al col­lect­ive Sa Ra Cre­at­ive Part­ners, Husayn has pro­duced for the likes of Erykah Badu, Andre 3000, John Legend, Kanye West, Jur­as­sic 5, Bilal, and many more.

In recent years, Shafiq has helped launch the careers of some of the most influ­en­tial new artists to emerge from L.A., serving as a ment­or to Ander­son .Paak and work­ing with Ty Dolla $ign before his rise to fame.

His solo debut Shafiq En’ A‑Free-Ka drew wide­spread crit­ic­al acclaim, and he earned a Grammy for his work on Robert Glasper’s break­through album Black Radio. Now, Shafiq Husayn is back with The Loop, the long-awaited fol­low-up to Shafiq En’ A‑Free-Ka.

The eclect­ic album fea­tures an all-star cast of Shafiq’s most prom­in­ent col­lab­or­at­ors, includ­ing con­tri­bu­tions from Erykah Badu, Ander­son .Paak, Hiatus Kaiyote, Robert Glasper, Thun­der­cat, Bilal, Fly­ing Lotus, N’Dambi, Coultrain, Jimetta Rose, Miguel Atwood-Fer­guson, and more.

Blend­ing lush live instru­ment­a­tion with futur­ist­ic synths and oth­er­worldly vocals, The Loop is a genre-defy­ing opus incor­por­at­ing spaced-out funk, raw neo-soul, free jazz, hip-hop beats, and elec­tron­ic ele­ments.
