2008 album by the Hip Hop duo from Oakland, California. The duo consists of producer and DJ AmpLive and emcee Zumbi. The two are highly respected and acclaimed underground artists, famous for Amp's futuristic production techniques, using a mix of live instrumentation and samples, and Zumbi's poetic, positive and socially conscious lyrics. Almost ten years after their debut album, the duo continues to create "sponge music" that soaks up any beat worth taking. 15 tracks including the first single 'Juicy Juice'.

To say the Oakland Duo came correct with this album is understated.
Where to begin? First Lets start with the production, if AmpLive isn't already regarded as one of the best producers in ALL of hip hop, heck all of music, (This guy's done remixes for Radiohead, yup Radiohead), then this will change some minds. Make you say, Kanye whooo?
From innovative futuristic tunes like "Antenna", which touches everything from electro rock to house fused with hip hop, to the break beat old school vibed out "DJDJ" or the syrupy "Country Baked Yams" wich features Devin The Dude.
"Geek to the beat" & "Juicy Juice" are straight Oakland/SF out the caddy slappers, while "Radio" is just a good time get up and boogie joint.
On the the Rappin side of things, MC Zion, or Zumbi, comes tight with the flow. He has always been a dope lyricist, but he's became more multi dimensional on the latest. From playful singing, to the classic cali vibe flow, to clever witt, to bay area flows, to insightful, to straight....
"Geek to the beat", "DJDJ", "ANTENNA", "Country Baked Yams" & "Radio". But they are all excellent. If you ever get a chance to see these guys live, do yourselves the favor, it will change your mind on what a live hip hop show is.
