Z-Trip Will Barack You

Mashup pioneer DJ Z-Trip’s posted a free mix on his site that includes speech/interview comments from Barack Obama and several left-leaning, politically oriented tracks by Public Enemy’s “Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos,” Saul Williams’ “Not in Our Name (The Pledge of Resistance),” DJ Vadim’s “The Terrorist,” Bob Marley’s “Get Up, Stand Up,” the Doors’ “Tell All the People,” the O’Jays’ “Give the People What They Want,” Eric B. & Rakim’s “Eric B. Is President,” Chemical Brothers’ “Leave Home,” Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come,” the Five Stairsteps’ “Ooh Child,” something by Gil Scott-Heron, a Jello Biafra rant (of course), and more.

So, you know, if you were planning to vote for the McFailin ticket, this mix might just sway you to a pro-Obama mindset.

About the mix, Z says: “The only thing I ask in return is that you spread this link everywhere…. Blogs, forums, emails, MySpace, Facebook, everywhere. We’ve only got a month left to really make some noise, and it’s crucially important that we get things right this time. Please download this mix and PASS IT ON!”

That mix is a long one, but worth listening to from start to finish. I hope Z-Trip comes up with another one that incorporates McSame's "That one" comment from the last debate.

Glad to see you're still bloggy, Dave! Come visit us in SF!
