Zion I’s Amplive has been on a remixing bender as of late. Starting with his reworking of Radiohead’s In Rainbows album, and continuing with a spree of remixes of the likes of Santogold, Jamie Lidell, Public Enemy, Tokyo Police Club, MGMT and more.
Here’s a couple of my personal faves to check out. You can find more at his Myspace.
Amplive remix of Jamie Lidell “Out Of My System”:
Amplive/Zion I remix of Santogold’s “One” ft. The Grouch:
Zion I will be releasing a long-awaited new album, The Takeover, in January via Gold Dust Records. In the meantime they will be releasing a mixtape – and by mixtape, I mean an actual cassette tape, called The Search & The Seizure mixtape which sees the duo re-working and re-interpreting a range of hip-hop classics on the A-Side, with the B-Side focusing on electro and indie-rock favorites. The Santogold track above is taken from this release. Also from this release is Zion I’s version of “Gotsta Chill” feat. Talib Kweli.Grab that one HERE
