Product Details
Hanni grew up in San Franscisco, California. The son of Palestinian and Filipino immigrants and the first American in his family, he became obsessed with classic Americana and pop culture of the 1950s and 60s. Influenced by pioneers of early rock and r&b (Johnny Burnette, Sam Cooke, Johnny Cash), El Khatib created a musical aesthetic to match his vision. The multi-instrumentalist serves as singer, songwriter & producer for his one-man band (live he is joined by a drummer) that is part blues, part garage rock, part soul, part folk & part doo whop. As the creative director for HUF and lifelong skater, El Khatib professes to a love for well-crafted objects: classsic cars, cans pomade and stiletto switchblades. This craftsmanship carries over into his music, where El Khatib is inspired and informed by the specificity of a guitar tone or the fuzziness of an amp sound .

The second 7 inch vinyl single from his upcoming debut, "Build. Destroy. Rebuild" is an anthem that speaks to a current generation that has lived through abundant times, has recently lost it's footing, but has the optimism to persevere. Armed with a guitar and the lyrical proclamation of a preacher, El Khatib takes to the pulpit to declare the cycles of change that exist in society. The b-side "Loved One" is a rambling ode to a femme fatale who has that "vampire look tonight." Both tracks are a magnificent prelude to what the debut LP "Will The Guns Come Out" has in store.
