#CivilRightsMixtape EP

by D'BI. & THE 333

/
  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    #CivilRightsMixtape is a 4 track EP of protest songs reverberating in a digital age while keeping sacred the wisdoms of the past. It honours the 12" record's 33 1/3 revolutions per minute through radical dub-musical anarchy and insists that we dance, sing, organize, protest, strategize and love our way to equality and emancipation. A lullaby to our dead behind us.
