Animals in the Median
A Different Animal

The first track released from that album—revealed today at Life+Times, the blog curated by some dude named Jay-Z—is a remix of Animals in the Median single "Zombies" by G_Force, a.k.a. Calvin Valentine, with his TxE groupmates Tope and Epp rhyming over churning 808 drums and the original's pulsing organ as Lizzy Ellison's ice-chilled vocals floats in between them. It's a revelatory melding of two disparate scenes that, even in a tight-knit music community such as Portland, doesn't happen often.       

Want to know how this collaboration came together? The short film below reveals how G_Force and Radiation City first entered each other's orbits.
