Creator & Director of Nightworks, Rah Zen, is a beatmaking polymath at the vanguard of the city's burgeoning beat community. His rich sound consisting of vibrant sample chops, textural percussion & pulsing bass woven into off-kilter, swinging drums, always goes beyond the beat to tell the stories found in his projects Upon the Apex, Midnight Satori and most recently, In Rah Form Vol. 1. Upon the Apex received honours at the end of 2019 such as Bandcamp's Best Beat Tapes of the Year, WBUR The ARTery 15 Best Albums Out of Boston, and XLR8R's Best Releases. His debut, Midnight Satori, was listed in Passion of the Weiss Best 50 Albums of 2017 right under SZA, Tyler the Creator and Jay-Z. Rah's relationship with music feels innate, pulsing through his bloodline in an easily traceable way, but also readily apparent in his thought process. Between his beatmaking craft and Nightworks, Rah Zen is dedicated to the creative business of world-building.
