about

For Good.

Everybody fucks up sometimes, but we rarely talk about why and what the consequences are. I was a bad man and I felt like a piece of shit for stepping out. For Good is a step-by-step ‘Outcomes of cheating on your lady'. Much love to my sister Sampa The Great for blessing the track with soul and perspective. Every collab on this record is special to me, and Sampa was the first one who showed me just how dope this record could be with some outside involvement. Her passion for music, her people and social change is addictive. I’ve never met someone so untainted by bullshit and so in touch with what is actually important. I’m proud to call you cousin, cousin. – Remi
 
I wanted to do a track where I would actually want to play out when I dj, so kept it simple, 4 to the floor, played some afrobeat esq guitar….. full disclosure, I had to get Remi to help "mute" the strings while I was "playing" the guitar, cos that strum is bloody tricky for me OK! Beatmakers out there, I programmed the kick and snare on the MPC, did some live claps, and added live hi-hats and crashes to make it seem like the whole track is on a drum kit. SECRETSSSS.  Simon Mavin graciously re-played my crappy Rhodes playing, and added his own touch and crazy-ass sounds. PS Sampa I love you. - Sensible J


F.U.B.U.

A brief interlude telling you how it is. I’m not alright, I’m not Ok, I’m fucked up bout u. FUBU. - Remi
 
The music is just some live shit I was messing with one day.  Started with the drums and keyboard       stabs and went from there… Thank you to our backup singers on this one. Whoever was at the House Of Beige that night jumped in the booth. Jelena Nikcevic, Jovana "emo voice" Nikcevic, Syreneyiscreamy, Lucas Barbuto, myself and Big Rem. - Sensible J
