"The Marc Brauner Remix of 'Yobalema' was meant to give the original a classic house touch with 909 drums, a bumpy Bassline and a spheric pad sound rising throughout the entire song.
While using percussion parts and other bits from the original I aimed to give the remix a more laid back and relaxed vibe picturing it being played at a beach party at sunrise."

"When I first listen to 'Yobalema', the live instruments and energetic vibes got my attention. I wanted to keep the original flow of the track and make it even more unique with sounds I use on my live sets.On the technical side,
I was inspired by every piece of the band. I kept some of them, such as djembe, drum hats, shakers and vocals. On top of that, I recorded the steel guitar and brought a techno-ish synth with an extended breakdown for the dance floor. I hope you enjoy it!"
