Abdel Aziz (aka Madz Abubakar) a renowned electronic producer and a genius live beats programmer for Nyko Maca + Playground. (http://www.m-audio.com/artists/en_us/NykoMacaPLAYgROUND.html) Hailed as, “one of the most talented Electronic Dance Music producer in the Philippines” - Rogue Magazine 2007.
An evident name in the LIVE electronic music culture in Manila, he is a remixer, an arranger and a producer; an Ableton user and an Akai APC pusher. He performs a solo live-electronic act as Abdel Aziz, and also the third musical head of PLAYgROUND.
It was in 2005 that Abdel Aziz was cast as the bassline/beats programming caballero for NM+PG (NykoMaca+PLAYgROUND); alongside Alvin Cornista & Rick Sanchez, they created a live yet smooth, crisp and clean electronic music. Their sound is their OWN. A unique style that ranged from lounge jazz to jacking beats where the boundaries of musical genres can't contain. As the members went on their separate ways in 2010, Abdel Aziz went on to relive his solo live electronic act.
As a forward-thinking live artist using new technology, he has earned the credence and respect of local artists (and promoters) in the urban music scene. His musical styling’s, (hammering buttons and cross-faders) (muse) around soulful sounds of the 70s to the most trendy, on-front dance genre, triggers voluntary arm and hip movements from both Manila hipsters and partyphiles.
Currently, Abdel Aziz continues to take part on frequent collaborations with various artist and DJs. He continues to evolve, blending the organic with the electronic and helps reshape, outstrip and create new aural experience for audiophiles all over the Manila and the rest of the islands.
Now, he is back with a new collaboration with another renowned electronic music producer Silverfilter, with singer/ songwriter Nyko Maca and a multi-awit awardee singer songer writer I-DREN ARTSTRONG. Together they are called, SINYMA https://www.facebook.com/sinymasound . The 4 have been in the SILVER SWITCH studio for some time now, churning their new sound.
