In Stores Today – Mustafa Akbar – Trust

Mustafa_Akbar_SpinSpinNYC

Mustafa Akbar is known across the globe as one of the best funk and modern soul singers and he possesses an amazing ability to deliver music from the heart. We first heard Trust featuring members of Akbar’s band Nappy Riddem playing over a tiny smartphone speaker after wrapping up a party at the ESL mansion in Washington D.C. Once Nutritious & Commodore produced a moody, storming vocal house remix and dub, B.C. beat-chef JPOD delivered a signature bass bending break mix and reprise.

Mustafa Akbar debuted in 2001 on the Thunderball album Scorpio Rising singing on ‘Heart Of The Hustler’ released by Thievery Corporation’s record label ESL Music. Since, Akbar’s been featured across numerous house, break, soul and funk records. In 2003, Akbar released his first solo music with the album Natural High. In 2006, Thunderball featured Akbar again, twice, on the album Cinescope (‘Return Of The Panther’ and ‘Elevated States’) released by ESL. In 2008, Fort Knox Five debuted their first album Radio Free DC featuring Akbar on four tracks, ‘The Spirit Of 75,’ ‘How To Start A Band,’ ‘Uptown Tricks’ and the successful ‘Funk 4 Peace.’ By 2009, Akbar released his second solo work, a soulful album titled That Day out on Kizum Music.

In 2011, Akbar debuted his reggae band Nappy Riddem with the release One World Sovereignty on Fort Knox Recordings. Then, in 2013, Akbar forged a relationship with Europe’s Basement Freaks, singing on three tracks on the album Funk From The Trunk (‘Gimme More,’ ‘Bedroom Stories,’ and ‘Dancin’) out on Jalapeño Records. In 2015, Fort Knox Five released the album Pressurize The Cabin with Akbar taking center stage on both ‘Whatcha Gonna Do’ and ‘Keep It Poppin,’ including a set of remixes by Worthy, DJ Dan, Mike Balance, and Wes Smith of the latter. In 2016, Akbar performed again with the Basement Freaks on the album Time Machine (‘Move Your Body’ and ‘Little Red Afro’)–’Little Red Afro,’ a tribute to the late Jon H, a long time friend and founding member of the Fort Knox Five.

This project is years in the making and we look forward to highlighting Akbar’s musical prowess on SpinSpinNYC.

Nutritious Shares How to Prepare for Your Next Party via Insomniac

“A great festival experience doesn’t start when you get to the grounds; it starts in the days and weeks leading up to the main event. One way comes really naturally, and that is to spend some time looking forward to the party, which builds up anticipation and makes you more likely to remember it for life. Another and more vital way to help ensure that you have the best possible festival experience is to take care of your body inside and out. Perhaps you’re already operating at optimum health levels with both diet and exercise. You’re a star! The rest of us could probably use some tips from someone who understands the festival lifestyle.

Enter Nutritious, a DJ, producer and graduate of New York City’s Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts. He has a passion for beats, as well as for food’s impact on society. If you’ve got a week or two, or even just a few days, to make some healthy food changes before the party, Nutritious suggests first cutting out as much caffeine and sweeteners as you can. While coffee can give you the temporary illusion of having more drive, “excess sugar and caffeine can stress the system and zap your energy,” he says. Your sweet tooth might not like to hear all that, and if you are not ready to go totally cold turkey on sugar, Nutritious suggests using dates to sweeten smoothies and dressings…”
