Chicago based Dancehall-fusion artist MC Zulu has built a reputation on the experimental nature of his music. Since the 2005 release of Ransom The Senator, an EP which merged his gruff, SingJay style with an early form of Grime-infused Dubstep, he has been a leading voice on the worldwide EDM scene.
Punctuating MC Zulu's unique take on the genre is the full length "Electro Track Therapy". The ambitious project touches on many of the itinerant, offshoot genres which comprise Global Bass Music, with Zulu's almost Protean vocals serving as a common denominator. Offerings from MC Zulu are generally well received, as they routinely spend time being among the Top 100 Reggae sellers for many distribution outlets. This one was no different.
Aiding the success of MC Zulu’s album are several spinoffs from the project, which have taken on a life of their own. Chicago producers Searchl1te and Radiohiro have recently released EPs related to their contributions. Kush Arora’s “Gunshot Riddim” also features Trinidadian Juakali and Dancehall legend Mega Banton. Additionally for the end of the year, MC Zulu has lent his voice to a number of experimental World Music projects. They fall within the realm of fusion, but their origins are far beyond the influence of Reggae.
