Audio: J Boogie ‘No Freedom ft. Afrolicious & MC Zulu’ (Kush Arora Remix)

On the tails of his disgustingly danceable LargeUp Mixtape Monday feature, J-Boogie (“SF’s Best Club DJ” according to SF Weekly and your favorite artists’ favorite opening act)  is prepping the release of his latest album Undercover. In true J-Boogie fashion, the album combines the best and catchiest from genres as varied as classic soul to bhangra to dread bass.

On this “No Freedom” remix, the final single from the forthcoming collection, Kush Arora weaves dream-like horns under a steady stomping 808 for a club-ready burner while MC Zulu uses the uptempo jam to make a statement on freedom of speech and expression. We’re having a hard time not dancing to this one. Download and make your neck work.
