Amahl Abdul-Khaliq is AF THE NAYSAYER - a flourishing producer in the electronic and instrumental hip-hop world. Within the last two years this New Orleans-based, Los Angeles-bred producer has dispersed his atmospheric productions across 70 cities and at over 300 shows in the US alone. His sound has been categorized as “electrifying soul-hop” whose core is best described by Atlanta producer DISTAL as, “Layered, intelligent design with a simple and easily digestible delivery.” His collaborations in New Orleans have led him to become the ambassador for Red Bull Music Academy, as well as the founder of beatmaker showcase Dolo Jazz Suite. AF has toured with artists such as Durazzo, Prism House, and Sports Coach, and has opened for Glitch Mob, Om Unit, Quantic, Lapalux, Young Fathers, and the 2016 Mad Decent BUKU Party (feat: Yellow Claw, NGHTMRE, Louis The Child, and Jazz Cartier).
After playing FOCUS Wales 2017, I caught the eye of an agent for Zandari Festa. At the time, I was traveling with my buddy Iwan, aka BAHR. We both mention to him that we worked with D'Light People out in Seoul, South Korea. The agent proposed the idea of having Bluechan (of D'Light People), BAHR, and myself perform to diversify the line-up of the festival. The overall goal is to represent New Orleans electronic music scene as well create music with my German and Korean brothers.
