THE PHAT ONES
We have had our far share of remixes over the years but this one was a real beautiful challenge.

With a soft yet aggressive guitar to set in the background as a solid foundation. Then we took it back to our South African roots by adding a spiritual, raw, jungle, soulful incident vocals.
