download "when will the time come?" from the upcoming a song for ourselves mixtape

I recently heard from DJ Phatrick, who informs me that he's been working on a mixtape for Tad Nakamura's new short documentary A Song For Ourselves, looking at the life of artist/activist Chris Iijima. The film will make its world premiere screening on February 28 in Los Angeles.

For the mixtape, DJ Phatrick is arranging Chris's music along with Blue Scholars, Bambu, Kiwi, and Native Guns songs, interwoven with sound bites from the movie. They're also doing exclusive remixes which sample Chris's music and feature verses from Geo, Bam, and Kiwi. The mixtape drops in late January.

In the meantime, they're offering a free download of the first track, "When Will The Time Come?" The beat is produced by Will Bracy, and samples "Jonathan Jackson" by Chris Iijima and his fellow A Grain Of Sand members, Nobuko Miyamoto and Charlie Chin. Learn more about the film here.
