Cherub – “So What (Back Talk Remix)”

And just like that Back Talk are back at it again. This time remixing The Burning Ear’s old friends and Nashville superstars Cherub. Back Talk really bring this track to life with their sparse, yet very choosey production style. This track went from a laid back groover to a full out dance floor assault.
