MC ZULU, a Panamanian now based in Chicago, has achieved worldwide acclaim for his off-brand variety of Electro-driven Reggae. With a wealth of material dating back over ten years, he has worked with producers and collaborators like Poirier, Maga Bo, Kush Arora, DJ C, Chrissy Murderbot, Aceyalone and Kool Keith. His latest projects include his own full-length, Electro Track Therapy, plus collaborations with DJ Kentaro (Contrast released by NinjaTune); Poirier (Alert Riddim EP on Man Recordings); and Maga Bo (Quilombo Do Futuro on Post World Industries).

About MC ZULU:
" This impressive, extremely well-produced album laces pounding hip-hop beats with ethereal background strings and atmospheric enhancements interwoven over Zulu's impeccable flow ." - Global Rhythm

" After listening to Call Red Alert, we really think MC Zulu and Poirier should start a riddim collective called Tha Supa Socas." - RCRDLBL

" Paired nicely with dub or dubstep music, Zulu took performances that were already awesome and gave them a glossy veneer of lyricism." - MXDWN -

" If you want a sneak preview of what dancehall reggae is likely to sound like ten years from now, this may be as good a guess as any." - All Music Guide -

It's been 16 years of madness in San Francisco for KUSH ARORA, and the party has just started. Throughout his diverse, ten-record discography, Kush has been sculpting cultural sound in San Francisco and beyond, branding his own signature imprint on bass-driven music. With a hefty discography with collaborations and remixes featuring Elephant Man, Cutty Ranks, Lady Chann, Balkan Beat Box, Eight Frozen Modules, Zion I, Nickodemus, and collaborations alongside Stereotyp, Jahdan Blackkkamoore, and J. Boogie, his sound has been sought after by futurists worldwide. All shades of dub, garage, dancehall, and Indo-Caribbean influences merge into his unique "Dread Bass" sound that has found him compared with future riddim makers like Stereotyp, Muzlimgauze, The Bug and even Adrian Sherwood. Kush’s releases can be found on labels as diverse as Top Billin, Crunchtime Recordings, to J Dub and ESL. Kush’s most recent productions include remixes for Cutty Ranks and dr. Israel, and a just-finished EP with Baile Funk vocalist Zuzuka Poderosa. Dropping at the end of January on Little Owl, it features remixes by Sonora, Negro Mozambique, Jubille & Burt Fox, Chrissy Murderbot, CEE (Christian from al haca), HXDB. Whether spinning bashment at a dubstep party, or working on Angolan riddims with Jamaican vocalists, Kush always slays any dance floor he sets foot on.
