Bring me the REMIX of Zilla Rocca
Front man of the superb underground (for lack of a better word) label Beat Garden Entertainment, my man Zilla Rocca is back with a complete follow up to his excellent mixtape "Bring Me The Head of Zilla Rocca." If your memory needs a freshening, I had the rare opportunity to interview Zilla over at passionweiss.com a few months back. Since then, beyond releasing Nico The Beast's "Dinner is Served," he's compiled and produced remix after remix, each one more aggressive than the last. Not convinced? The press release from the record says it all:
In the fall of 2008, Clean Guns emcee Zilla Rocca released the album Bring Me the Head of Zilla Rocca. Described as, "A loose, funky hodgepodge of battle raps, musings on strip clubs, falling for older women, and reflections on the city of Philadelphia," the album served as Zilla's debut as a solo artist. Shortly after its release, Zilla reached out to several of his favorite producers and asked them to remix each song on the album. Over the course of three months, each remix made its debut on 33jones.com.
All of the remixes have been collected into a new album, Bring Me the REMIX of Zilla Rocca, with bonus material that has never been released before!
In addition to the release of the mix, 33Jones is also sponsoring a remix contest of their own in conjunction with Zilla's release. Included on the download of the mix are one instrumental track and one acapella track primed and ready for your remix! So head over, check out the contest rules, download the mixtape and create!
Otherwise, keep a mean eye out for Zilla, he's sure to be blowing up on the scene soon. And wouldn't you like to say "I knew him back in the day?"
