Here comes another remix courtesy of Amplive. This year alone, the Oakland, CA-based producer has dropped a Radiohead remix record, mashed up MGMT and Of Montreal, and turned over remixes of The Jealous Girlfriends and Tokyo Police Club. The latter featured a guest appearance by Aesop Rock, and Amplive had pulled a similar tactic with this reworking of Jamie Lidell's "Out of My System." Zion I–whose new album, The Takeover is slated for a January release–was kind enough to spare group member MC Zumbi for the remix. Zumbi threw some raps over Lidell's crooning, and the resulting product is a funky, danceable number that's brimming with soul.
