    Product Details

    Summary

    The Burnerz are a new duo consisting of Zumbi of the hip-hop group Zion I and the Houston-based Trackmasters producer, The Are. Now, after a year of scratching out rhymes, making beats, mixing, and mastering, The Burnerz-who met on tour in Europe in 2003-just completed one of the most energizing independent hip-hop albums of the year. The Burnerz recruited The Grouch, OneBeLo, Martin Luther, and C-Holiday for the album. "Instead of going through layers of editing (like we do for Zion I)," explains Zumbi of his approach, "We tried to capture the raw emotion of both lyrics and beats for this album."

    Zumbi has always set a new standard for socially conscious hip-hop and this album is no exception. The track "The Edge" where The Grouch and Zumbi spit rhymes about snatching victory from the jaws of defeat. "It's about feeling hopeless and fearful, but having just enough strength to turn around and confront one's demons," explains Zumbi. As the charismatic emcee of Bay Area group Zion I, Zumbi has released six critically acclaimed albums along with numerous EPs and mixtapes. Zumbi contributed to the Grammy-Award winning group Linkin Park's album Reanimation as well as the BassNectar album, and mixtapes for the Roots, K'naan and Q-Tip. Currently, Zion I are touring with reggae sensations Rebelution. Their seventh album Atomic Clock drops Nov 9.

    Veteran producer, The Are, hails from Houston, TX but his production style is more drum-heavy east coast in sound than southern. He began his career with the trio K-Otix in the mid 90s, touring Europe and releasing the 2001 LP, Universal, and produced two tracks for EMC (Punchline, Masta Ace, Wordsworth, and Stricklin). But, it's been within the last couple years, that The Are has flourished: After signing with the production team the Trackmasters, he produced singles for Keisha Cole ("Where this Love?"), Lil Kim and Lords of the Underground, as well as many others. His Michael Jackson instrumental remix CD, Dem Damb Jacksons, became an online collectors item in 2007. Finally, he produced the first single off the forthcoming Keisha Cole album.
