Zion80’s Warriors RMX is a reworking of songs from 2017’s Warriors EP. The 10-piece band’s signature groove-heavy sound of out-front horns, organic percussion, electric guitars and keyboards lends itself very well to the art of the remix. The album kicks off with a mix of “Pardes” by Curha (aka Curtis Hasselbring), adding a dose of quirky electronica to the song’s Latin-jazz groove (think Eddie Palmieri meets Autechre). The album’s only vocal track is a mix of “In Our Youth” by producer Smoke M2D6, featuring indie rapper/poet ePHRYME and some added guitar work from Zion80 bandleader Jon Madof. Madof takes the reins on a dub-heavy mix of “Wandering Stone,” with nods to producers Bill Laswell and King Tubby. London-based producer and multi-instrumental wizard Koby Israelite runs “Holy Brother” through the mashup meat grinder, adding blast-beat drums and chaotic jump-cuts along the way. The album finishes with an instrumental version of “In Our Youth,” bringing the album to a close and hinting at things to come from a live band who, after eight years and four studio albums, has only begun to expand their musical horizons into uncharted territory. Available as a limited edition CD with hand-painted digipak cover »

Holy Brother – Koby Israelite RMX

The new single and video from the upcoming Zion80 Warriors RMX album is here! The amazing multi-instrumental wizard and producer Koby Israelite threw our song ‘Holy Brother’ into the mashup meat grinder, adding blast-beat drums and chaotic jump-cuts along the way. We then used a super fun music video generator to match the musical insanity of the song.

Ruthless Cosmopolitans

Ruthless Cosmopolitans is a collaboration between Zion80’s Jon Madof and underground rapper, poet, and performance artist Eden Pearlstein (aka ePRHYME of Darshan). The band also features Zion80 members Frank London, Greg Wall, Yoshie Fructher, Brian Marsella and Marlon Sobol. Ruthless Cosmopolitans is a cathartic/parodic/prophetic response to the spiraling state of our nation, and the world. Music, poetry, performance and imagery are the mediums employed to spread this synaesthetic form of sympathetic magic.

Stay tuned!

We’ve got some new music coming, along with new projects from Zion80 bandleader Jon Madof. Stay tuned, and while you’re waiting you can watch our video for ‘Pardes’
