Categorzing Shabazz Palaces is nearly impossible. The Seattle group led by Palaceer Lazaro (aka Ishmael "Butterfly" Butler formerly of Digable Planets & Cherrywine) has surpassed all genre confines and captured the imaginatioons of spectators. Containing a sublime mixture of funk, jazz, dubstep and structures un-echoed by the typical style of 16 bar hip-hop. Shabazz Palaces quickly gained critical admiration following an unprecedented string of epic performances accross their home city. Shabazz Palaces' music is defiant in the face of musical norms both in terms of sheer musicianship and lyricism. Experimental, innovative and irresistable, "Of Light" is sure to be heralded by listeners not satisfied with the status quo.
