San Luis Obispo, CA. (Top40 Charts/ Universal Records) - Critically-acclaimed independent pop artist Tajddin releases his solo debut EP with "Rock that Beat."

The emerging pop star has been creating a buzz in the local entertainment and club scene with his edgy blend of genre-defying pop, dance, urban and world music.

"Rock that Beat," the title of his independently-produced debut EP, which has started to hit local radio, has been greeted with great fanfare and critical acclaim, even garnering the attention of Universal Records.

"I grew up listening to everything from Prince and Michael Jackson to Arabic and Latin greats like the Gypsy Kings, and I think that broad range of influences shows in my music," says the 21-year-old about his album. "I certainly nod to my Cuban-Moroccan heritage throughout the album."

Take for instance the middle-eastern inspired, "No Stopping it," which combines arabesque vocals and instrumentation with modern synth-pop, or the Romeo and Juliet-inspired "The World and Time Stop for You," which blends classical symphony with modern hip/hop delivery and pop melody.

Equally as impressive is that all tracks on the album are produced, arranged, composed and performed by Tajddin, a feat that is a rarity in the modern music landscape. This command of the music-making process definitely shows throughout the record:

"The album tells a story from beginning to end, chronicling the process of falling in love - from love at first sight to being cheated on and then finding the courage needed to move on - and as you move forward on the record, the tracks get a little more eclectic and spiritual."

About getting approached by record labels, the 4-octive vocalist says, "I'm not desperate for a deal, and as long as I'm performing and inspiring people, I'm happy - In time, it'll all come together."

With everything from symphonic hip hop to Middle-Eastern inspired synth-pop, "Rock that Beat" makes for a thrilling ride from beginning to end.
