D'bi & The 333's Civil Rights Mixtape is a 4 track EP of protest songs reverberating in a digital age while keeping sacred the wisdoms of the past. It honours the 12" record's 33 1/3 revolutions per minute through radical dub-musical anarchy and insists that we dance, sing, organize, protest, strategize and love our way to equality and emancipation. A lullaby to our dead behind us. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE ALBUM
