Ok, so for some artists, the mix of politics and music is a terribly preachy combo. But the Obama fever is so infectious -- and frankly, I'm so excited to watch the VP candidate debates tonight (come to Nickies, at Haight and Fillmore, with a crew of us if you want a spot to watch on big screen TVs) that I have to post this Z-Trip "Obama Mix." It pulls in a little of this (Pink Floyd) a little of that (Public Enemy), some Obama speech samples, and a lot of rhetoric for positive change. The track is a cool little marker for our time, and for how far-reaching momentum for this Democratic candidate has spread. Download the "Obama Mix" for free here ... and here's to Biden kicking ass tonight (without seeming, ya know, all cocky about it). -- Jennifer Maerz
