On the remix, Anna Lunoe boasts: “BOLD! This remix is packed with bold choices, my favourite production trait there is. Tseba bodied this, added a whole new dimension to the song!”. The excitement was mutual for Tseba, who said:Anna Lunoe and Genesis Owusu are two of my favourite Australian artists, so naturally I jumped at the opportunity to make this remix. Excited to have something out on NLV records! I hope people enjoy this club-friendly remix.”

Tseba is the new anonymous project released through Future Classic. Taking inspiration from legends like Todd Terry and Kerri Chandler the project is an attempt at capturing the sound of House music as it pivoted from being underground music from urban centres in the USA to being an internationally celebrated commercial phenomenon. It is a balance of cryptic, esoteric ideas from nascent electronic music contrasted with approachable, familiar sounds and global pop and dance.
