I would like to take the time to mention an accomplished producer and friend – Ahmed Sirour. For those who are not aware of Ahmed, now is the time to expand your music horizons and take a listen to what Ahmed Sirour has to offer for the soul heads.
Ahmed is a composer, arranger, producer and sound Engineer from Brooklyn, NY. He has worked with an impressive list of DJs, producers and singers, with names such as DJ Spinna, Rich Medina, DJ Kemit and many others. His remixes have covered songs by the Foreign Exchange, Robert Glasper, Jill Scott and so on. He has even worked with vocalist Cleveland P. Jones.
Ahmed’s instrument is the piano / keyboard. I had the honor of him playing the keys in my house as he is currently here in Japan. Ahmed Sirour is a self taught pianist and what he may lack in theory, is certainly made up for in inspiration and originality. He is able to put together deep soulful chords that seem to build tension and resolve without the knowledge of any complex theory.
Please make sure you check out some of his compilation albums (Snippets below)[bandcamp width=100% height=120 album=3625296672 size=large bgcol=ffffff linkcol=0687f5 tracklist=false artwork=small track=999913204] [bandcamp width=100% height=120 album=1064444891 size=large bgcol=ffffff linkcol=0687f5 tracklist=false artwork=small track=673506033]
