Do you want to hear some good music?  Are you into Hip-Hop, electronic, mashup, turntablism? And do you want to hear an Obama Mix?  Well you can download it from here. This mix will move you and make you think.

It is all by DJ Z-Trip.

DJ Z-Trip (born Zach Sciacca) hails from the mashup school of hip hop, yet is fluent in many types of party DJing, such as techno and classic rock. A Phoenix, Arizona native, DJ Z-Trip became widely known over the internet when his collaboration with DJ P, Uneasy Listening Vol. 1, was released in 2001. Only 2000 copies were made of this illicit mash up session recorded in a San Francisco nightclub by Future Primitive, but the album was soon distributed over the Internet in MP3 format. Z-Trip was later officially commissioned by Rush to remix Tom Sawyer for the Small Soldier’s soundtrack, and he was featured in the DJ film & DVD of Doug Prey’s “Scratch”. DJ Z-Trip’s most recent release, Shifting Gears, marked his major label debut. Released on Hollywood Records in 2005, the album features guest artists Supernatural, Murs, Lyrics Born, Luke Sick, Aceyalone, Mystic, Prince Whipper Whip, Busdriver, Chester Bennington (from Linkin Park), Chuck D (from Public Enemy) and Soup (from Jurassic 5).

A new collaboration with Lateef was released in May 2007 called “Ahead of the Curve”. A preview track “Mass Hysteria” is currently posted on Z-Trip’s website, along with the preview track “Doin’ It Like This” from the All Pro soundtrack.
