DJ Art Beatz is a producer, DJ and remixer whose creativity and passion for music keeps him working around the clock.
“I wake up in the middle of the night to compose a beat,” he says.
The Baghdad-born, Worcester, Massachusetts based 24-year- old creates a sound all his own by bringing together the music of his homeland of Iraq with the current sounds of house/ techno, rap, reggae, reggaeton, and R&B. He also draws inspiration from the work of past masters.
Art’s brother Bassam, who learned to play music on a church organ in Baghdad, taught him to play music by ear. Art now composes beautiful pieces whenever he sits down at anything with keys, be it a baby grand piano or a Korg Triton keyboard in his home studio. His mastery of Logic and Pro Tools allows him to create music in nearly any location.
In addition to recording at the Art Beatz Studio, Art recorded with acts at the prestigious Long View Farm Studios, which has hosted greats such as the The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith and Mos Def, as well Cybersound in Boston.
Beatz is responsible for producing rapper Ariez’s song “Wat U Gonna Do,” which gained airplay on Boston’s JAM’N 94.5 at the end of 2005. Art Beatz has also produced beats for major rappers J Millz and Nicki Minaj, as well as reggae artist Pritty Boy.
Art is the current resident DJ at the Boiler Room and was formerly the resident DJ at Amsterdam Lounge and Canal Lounge, all in Worcester, MA. He also currently plays in Boston clubs. Some of his past gigs featured DJs like Clinton Sparks, DJ Skribble, DJ Enferno, Boris and Crooklyn Clan’s DJ Sizzahandz as well as Celebrity DJ Samantha Ronson. He has numerous mixtapes, including his most recent release, Boiler Room (January 2010). His remixes of songs by artists such as Lil Jon and Britney Spears span several music genres.
