Z-Trip Unveils Obama Mix
- Words: Jennifer Marston
Z-Trip's been hard at work on the Obama support trail, most notably in his collaborative event series with Shepard Fairey. The two have made a mission of educating fans on the importance of voter registration, and Z-Trip continues on that track with his new "Obama Mix."
The L.A.-based DJ apparently spent months working on the mix, which he's now made available as a free download from his site. It's a mash-up of samples, speeches, and songs, and Z-Trip is encouraging fans to "burn copies, share it with friends, family, co-workers, strangers, and especially anyone you know is on the fence about this election." He's also prepped a radio-friendly version of the mix.
He'll continue spreading the message via tour dates happening throughout the rest of the month, then on into November.
