OKP Audio: Zulu Guru (Jesse Boykins III & MeLo-X) "Black Orpheus"


Zulu Guru is the name of a new project involving Jesse Boykins III and MeLo-X. The two boundary-pushing musicians will join forces for an entire LP on Ninjatune, set to be released on October 15th. If you put those pieces of information together, you might have a rough idea of what their first track "Black Orpheus" might sound like. And yes, it's afro-futuristic, mellow, progressive and just pretty mind-blowing generally, blending rap and r&b effortlessly into a washed-out stream of aural bliss. Dip your toe below and grab the track over at NT.
