Bless up, I'm watching you two keep keeping on don't let anyone ever tell you EDM in kenya is a myth the only way to bring change is by making it happen and we do that with efforts like this.

    @glitch-fix: Thanks bro, I was on my Rick James mode when writing and performing it in the studio with shades on. For some reason I always have to record with shades on weirdly enough I feel leaked if I don't have a pair and lack there of can ruin a session.
