Initially, The Recipe began as a project designed to bring talented Hip Hop artists in the United Arab Emirates together to record a compilation album and help promote the culture. As the project grew and began generating regional interest, the collective began receiving invites to perform at live events. Upon completion of the mixtape the collective launched the project under the name “The Recipe” with a sold out event, the first Hip Hop show headlined by regional artists. The Recipe would eventually evolve into an independent label acting as a vehicle to launch solo projects from members such as Young Vaughn’s “New School Cool,” and Perfect Storm’s “The Calm Before”, Kaz Money’s “The Ridicule/ The Opposition” as well as Swerte’s “The Quicktape” series. They have also released multiple mixtapes as a group. As a group or individuals, The Recipe have performed at clubs, art shows, exhibitions, festivals, charity gigs and concerts, either as the main act or in support of international artists such as: Snoop Dogg, Macklemore, Xzibit, Fat Boy Slim, Akon, Fat Joe, 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, De La Soul, Marcus Houston, Omarion, Lloyd, Prime Cuts, Foreign Beggars, Pendulum, Karl Wolf and Mobb Deep. Today, The Recipe is a group that consists of 3 MC’s striving to push the boundaries of regional hip hop achievements, they have recently completed an official studio album with their first commercial track ‘DEATH TO GET HERE’ released on iTunes on August 17th 2015 going to #1 on the UAE Hip Hop chart. Following the success of ‘DEATH TO GET HERE’ The Recipe released ‘Throwback to The Future’ a mixtape dedicated to the old school, hosted by the legendary DJ Hurricane of Beastie Boys fame. The project went on to be selected for Album of the Year by Infusion Magazine. Gearing up to the Official Album release, "Place To Rest" was chosen as the first single from the project to be released exclusively on HIPHOPDX.com which features legendary rapper, Talib Kweli and Spark Master Tape. The Song and video has received numerous high reviews helped prepare everyone for the following single off the album, "Bandana".
