HANNI EL KHATIB AND FRANK LEONE SHARE NEW SONG “SOLID GOLD”
Before Hanni El Khatib ever picked up a guitar and explored rock n’ roll, he was making beats in his bedroom on a MPC 2000 & SP-1200. This love affair with hip-hop has been ubiquitous throughout his career including collaborations with the likes of GZA, Aesop Rock, and Freddie Gibbs. On “Solid Gold,” Khatib returns to his roots on a new collaboration with rising star Frank Leone who hails from the woods south of Chicago. It’s a mix of vintage synths, MPC drums and drum machines that gives it a Bay Area meets Windy City swagger complimented by Leone’s sleek flow.
“Solid Gold” arrives on the heels of Hanni releasing “Power Struggle” a new song with LA disco-not-disco duo De Lux, two songs with first-generation Mexican-American singer/songwriter Rudy De Anda, and LA duo Pinky Pinky’s raw and exhilarating debut album Turkey Dinner, which El Khatib co-produced.
Hear “Solid Gold” above and stay tuned for more from Hanni El Khatib coming soon.
