    He’s remixed Radiohead and MGMT and appeared as a playable character in a couple of NBA2K video games. He’s made conscious hip-hop as one half of Oakland duo Zion I for a decade, gaining widespread respect for his production in the Bay Area and elsewhere. Now beatmaker Amp Live has prepared a solo album, Electrowonderland vol. 2: Murder at the Discotech, which is described on Zion I’s website as a mix of hip-hop, dubstep, electro, and indie. The album will feature guest vocals from Zion I frontman Zumbi, Grouch & Eligh of Living Legends, and a slew of other rappers and vocalists. It is set for release March 16th via Child’s Play.

    Until then, listen to his remixes of five tracks — one of which features Zumbi — from Why?’s latest album, Eskimo Snow. They are available for download here. Also take a gander at the video for the single “Gary is a Robot”, which features a very Flight of the Conchords-style dancing robot and a provoking obituary.
