My name is Zaid Abdulrahim from Long Island, NY. I am the DJ/founder of Soulful Horizons Music which started in 2014 throwing its first parties in Harlem USA. My style of music is soulful and Afro House music that touches the spirit. As Louie Vega once told me his first advice to any DJ is to "Play from the heart". From the humble beginnings of throwing my own events in order to get exposure we are excited to establish Soulful Horizons Music.
The story starts at about age 5 being blessed with a natural gift of dance. Being able to feel the music unlike others around me and interpret that into a dance motion that was considered very smooth and fluid. I continued to use that feeling to determine what is good music to my soul and what is not but what makes me move. I started off as a rapper at age 12 surrounded by Djs such as Biz Markie, Diamond Jay and Diamond Shell thus the introduction to beat production and studio exposure was given to me at a very impressioonable point in my life and has stuck with me ever since.
My family has been in music production for many generations. Starting with Thom Bell who produced for the Stylistics, Delfonics, Elton John, Dionne Warwick and James Ingram to name a few. Followed by Ron Bell who is one of the founding members of Kool and the Gang. Also, Jerry Bell from the Daz Band, Archie Bell of Archie Bell and the Drells and Leroy Burgess the lead singer and producer from the group Black Ivory.
As time passed I gravitated more towards the positive energy of House Music and the Love I saw in the culture. I have been blessed to meet many beautiful people. In 2015 I teamed up with the Are You Afro? Movement in the WMC Miami 2015 Conference. This was a major breakthrough for me because I was given an opportunity to open for Anane and Louie Vega at the Nulu Party along with playing three dates with Are you Afro? I am very thankful for those chances to shine and I am using the momentum to take advantage of a bright future. My goal has always been music production and we have finally reached that stage.
