[Performance starts at 5:13]

Oakland production duo G-Koop and O-Man are kicking off season 3 of their new, ingenious and avant-garde beat making documentary series with a bang.

You may know the duo from their work with The Game, Drake, Funkadelic, Atmosphere, & Future, as well as soundtracks to video games The Last of Us, Journey, and Bloodborne. Even more recently, they delivered their Lost In the Game EP, while G-Koop lent his talents to G-Unit’s “Boy Boy” alongside !llmind and Jake One.

In volume 54 of the series, the pair, working alongside Ant (of Atmosphere) and Brother Ali set out to create the track “Ya Mawlana,” including bass contributions from Ben Wright (of Sweet Pro).

The outcome is a crazy collaboration with Brother Ali even doing some singing in Arabic. You can pre-order “Ya Mawlana” through iTunes now. Purchase the Ya Mawlana EP – including instrumental and dub – also on iTunes.
