Z-Trip is one of the biggest DJs of our time. Doing over 100 shows a year, every year, he is also known as the founding father of the mash-up movement. His early independent releases have become highly sought after collectibles.

No other DJ can claim playing to 500,000 people opening for the Rolling Stones at Sars-Stock in Toronto, playing the Bonaroo main stage to over 70,000 people two years in a row, in addition to headlining a tent at Coachella twice. He’s also been busy around the world doing the Good Vibrations Festival in Australia 2006, as a headliner. All of this in addition to his US and international headlining sold out shows, and multiple club residencies.

Z-Trip’s major label debut “Shifting Gears” was given 4 stars by Rolling Stone – it’s highest honor. The first single “Walking Dead” went Top 20 and featured Chester Bennington of Linkin Park. The album also had two Number 1s on the college chart. “Listen to the DJ” featuring Soup of Jurassic 5 and “Shock and Awe” featuring Chuck D. He’s also a master of the remix, with a stand out re-working of The Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back” on “Motown Remixed”.

Z-Trip can be seen in the movie “Scratch” (and “Scratch Live”) alongside Q-Bert, Mix Master Mike and originators of the art form like Afrika Bambaataa and Jazzy Jay. In addition, he’s appeared in “Brainfreeze” and “Product Placement”, two live concert movies, both of which feature friends DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist.

DJ Z-TRIP “ALL PRO”

Decon and 2K Sports are pleased to announce the release of the latest “All-Pro Football 2K8” video game soundtrack, Z-Trip’s “All Pro”. One of the world’s most celebrated DJs and producers, DJ Z-Trip’s latest release showcases 13 original tracks, remixes, and mash-ups featuring top-notch hip hop artists like Slug of Atmosphere, Rakim, Dead Prez, Chali 2na, Aceyalone, and rock favorites like Deftones, Rush and Chevelle to name just a few.

On “Locked and Loaded” Dead Prez provide an all-new rap over a rousing Deftones track. Any hard rocker or hip hop head will appreciate “Let the Rhythm Hit Em”, where Z-Trip mixes hip hop legend Rakim over alternative rockers Chevelle. Finally, in trademark Z-Trip mash-up style, he ends with a remix of the classic Rush track “Tom Sawyer”.

“Working with Z-Trip for the “All Pro” soundtrack was the ideal scenario, his mash-ups and crate digging skills are legendary. He gave the game a unique soundtrack while simultaneously creating a great production record”, explains Peter Bittenbender, CEO of Decon. “The minute we decided to do rap/rock record he was our top choice as the producer.”

“One thing I really appreciate about 2K Sports is they take chances when it comes to their music selection, and I’m all about that”, notes DJ Z-Trip. “Working on the “All Pro Football 2K8″ soundtrack gave me the opportunity to really mix things up. The music fits perfectly in the game, making you want to nod your head and tackle someone at the same time.”

The critically acclaimed 2K football series will feature an authentic next generation gridiron experience that showcases legendary gameplay, innovative features, and the outstanding visual quality sports gamers have come to expect from 2K Sports.

“All Pro” is stirring and pioneering, but most importantly maintains the party vibe Z-Trip is famous for.
