      Zion I & The Grouch & Eligh

      Zion I Zion I are a hip hop duo from Oakland, California. The duo consists of producer DJ AmpLive and MC Zumbi. The group is known to its followers for Amp's futuristic production techniques, using a mix of live instrumentation and samples, and Zumbi's positive and socially conscious lyrics. Zion I debuted in 1997 with the locally distributed cassette-only EP Enter the Woods. Their first single on Indie label Ground Control Records, Inner Light paved the way for an album deal. In 2000, they released the critically acclaimed Mind Over Matter. In total, they have released eight studio albums, Mind Over Matter (2000), Deep Water Slang V2.0 (2003), True & Livin' (2005), Break a Dawn (2006)—a Japan exclusive, Heroes in the City of Dope (2006)—a collaborative album with The Grouch: The Take Over (2009), Atomic Clock (2010), another collaborative album with The Grouch: Heroes in the Healing of the Nation (2011), and most recently ShadowBoxing (2012) featuring Bassnectar, Collie Buddz, D.U.S.T., Goapele, and The Grouch & Eligh,. The Grouch The Grouch is one of the founding members of the internationally infamous crew, The Living Legends. Humbly beginning on a 4-track recorder nearly 15 years ago, The Grouch has steadily grown into one of the prominent figures within the independent hip hop scene. Known for captivating his listeners with his down to earth and truthfully poignant raps and production, The Grouch has successfully released over ten solo projects, independently. In addition to his solo career, The Grouch has played an integral part in building the Living Legends brand, sound, and image. A consummate workaholic, The Grouch also has numerous groups outside of his solo career and LL collective, most notably: The Grouch & Eligh, Zion I & The Grouch, and The CMA with Living Legends crewmate, Luckyiam. Eligh Eligh, a self-described “genre-breaking, obsessive bass fiend” has continued to sustain himself as a salient figure for over fifteen years within the increasingly fickle and rapidly revolving world of hip-hop. The Los Angeles native has maintained his respected status by fearlessly veering from a the traditional trajectory which is often limited to beats and rhymes. Instead, Eligh has chosen to fabricate projects that incorporate the gritty sounds of the UK dub scene, the unorthodox styling of indie rock, the lush guitars and honesty of folk music, and the complexity of jazz, all without losing the listener in a musically esoteric composition. As a producer, he has provided music for notable acts such as Living Legends, Murs, Rass Kass, El-P, wrestler John Cena, and continues to be a sought after producer by his peers.
