Since their highly acclaimed debut album, Mind Over Matter, Oakland Hip-hop standouts Zion I have stood at the forefront of progressive hip hop, foreshadowing the merging of electronic music and Hip-hop years in advance. For the first single off their upcoming Bomb First mixtape collaboration with J.Period, Zion I take on Swedish electro-pop for this dub-style J.Period dubplate of Little Dragon’s “Ritual Union.” Look out for the full-length Zion I X J.Period Bomb First mixtape featuring Kendrick Lamar, SBTRKT, Azelia Banks, Action Bronson, and more.
J Boogie steps into a new realm with an exclusive edit of Little Dragon’s “Crystalfilm”. Blurring the lines between deep house, moombahsoul and techno, his version bumps along at 111 BPM with sexy percussive accents, big boom toms, and a Detroit 909 feel.
Kosha Dillz links up with Ducky for his take on “ritual reunion” from Little dragon in hip hop form. This is part of the Jet Lag Ep. Beat provided by Nate G.
