Back to the old school.

Zion I

The Bay Area group Zion I is known for infusing hope and positivity into old school flow and live instrument sampling. The group is touring in support of their latest studio offering Shadowboxing—an album that brings dark sci-fi inspired electro-beats into the mix with MC Zumbi’s Q-Tip inspired vocals.


With two decades of recording under their belt, Zion I works early hip hop styles including breaks into their forward thinking beats, which on Shadowboxing include a guest appearance by electronic group Bassnectar.
