We recently spoke with Zilla Rocca about his many collaborations in the electronic music realm in anticipation for his forthcoming Neo Noir mixtape, which finds him letting loose lyrically on leftfield loops, many of which come from electronic producers and acts like Clams Casino, who teeters on that hip-hop/beats fence perfectly. On this Neo Noir track, a Clams Casino instrumental is the basis for Zilla linking with Dose One, a famed underground emcee who’s also a part of cLOUDDEAD. They both do what comes naturally to them over this heavy beat. Don’t expect any chants or club rocking on this one; this is way more cerebral and soul-steeped. For the thinkers out there. Neo Noir is out tomorrow (October 29).
