Under the Basmala banner, HA's Control Room album is Post-Modern Hip-Hop, JazzHop, Beats and Jazztronica. Culminated by instrumental hip-hop or beat art.
With a precise collision of styles, since the late 2000's HA uses heavy influences of Hip-Hop. While focusing on the art of beat-making (beat art) or instrumental hip-hop. Not confused with Theme music or Beats (sub-genre). Which signifies a producer is selling or licensing one-off tracks. Which he also does for his Urban Sufi Music (SESAC), Ghadaqan Music (BMI) and So Amusing (ASCAP) publishing. Licensing content to muzak esque companies such as Mood Music and RX Music in Canada.
Moving into 2023, HA built up his current repertoire with a few albums and EPs. "I was working like a bulldozer from the beginning of 2021-2023," he explains. "It was a progressive upgrade including enhancing my engineering skills," added HA.
Well into the jazztronica rhelm, HA Works his sound also releasing projects as HA Ya-Ali & Rahmatika. Weathering many phases of music since his deep dive into beats in early 2010.
HA has fine-tuned his compositions with a new schedule of releases from 2023-27 (iA). From his concept based album series Practice (Rahmatika) and more original material for licensing.
