Press Release :
The 3rd single from UK soul burners Ok_Ma is a slice of heaviness with illicit drums that once more feature the beautiful vocals of Lea Lea Jones, (previously featured on "Sister" and "Go-Flo"). A certain headnodder that continues the Uk soul tradition of Loose Ends through Soul II Soul, Basement Jaxx and Yam Who. This is future Boogie that gets arses on the floor!

The first remix is courtesy of Lanu who has had a busy year with the release of his album with The Bamboos dropping on Tru Thoughts and his own productions getting caned everywhere from Co-op to house nights at the Cross. This remix is a killer, heavy live bassline, keys and horn section. Lanu takes the track into 80's dancefloor territory, Lea Lea showing she has the credentials to be a soul diva of tomorrow. Opolopo is the man from Sweden, and those in know rate this cat very highly. This year he has recorded for the Sick Trumpet label and has done many an illicit booty for the undergound. This mix is some mad futuristic broken hustle coming on like Bugz trapped in a Swedish whore house!

For the bonus cut we have a sick remix of 'Make Me Cry' from BBE's D'nell. which comes on like Sa-Ra stuck in Ladbroke Grove drinking a pint of Stella. Its raw, it nods to the US, but is UK all the way. Vocals come from NY Shu, who won this year's John Lennon songwriting award. Fire!
