Alap Momin Wikipedia
Alap Aman Momin (born 25 June 1974), professionally known as Alap Momin and Oktopus is an American musician, composer and producer. He is a former member of Dälek and MRC Riddims.
Alap Aman Momin was born to Indian parents and grew up in New Jersey. From a young age, Momin developed an interest in music and took up playing guitar at the age of 12 and began to join local bands. Gradually his interest shifted to engineering and he started his first recording studio in 1993 in his parent’s basement in Parsippany, New Jersey.
In 1995, while at William Patterson University, Alap met Will Brooks and Joshua Booth. The three started collaborating as experimental hip hop group Dälek. The group has been described as hip-hop revolutionaries. Dälek released seven albums and embarked on a number of tours.
In 2010, Alap left Dälek and moved to Berlin, where he lived for two years. Momin began work on a solo project entitled BKGD Audio as well as Third Culture Kings, a collaboration with Jan Johanson from Glorybox.
Momin has engineered and produced: Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, The Black Hollies, Miss TK and The Revenge, Lifetime, Dälek, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Rye Coalition, All Natural Lemon and Lime Flavors, Charles Hayward (This Heat), Faust, Jets To Brazil, Yael Naem, Will Oldham, David Byrne, Yann Tiersen, Alan Vega and Mark Mulcahy.
MRC Riddims is the DJ/production team of Alap Now and Merc Anthony. In 2009 Alap began collaborating with longtime friend Merc, who was a member of the shoegaze band All Natural Lemon and Lime Flavors. The two began exploring a sound that sought to fuse Jamaican Dancehall and House music.
In April 2016 Alap released his first solo record "Round One" as BKGD Audio on NY label Internet and Weed.Fluid City EP (2016)
