Nostalgia 77 Grant Phabao Remix feat Marco Benevento

Nostalgia 77 - Simmerdown feat. Josa Peit (Grant Phabao Remix feat. Marco Benevento)

Some of you might remember the reggae remix our resident producer Grant Phabao did on N77's Seven Nation Army cover with Alice Russell… It was high time to try and rework a new Nostalgia 77 track and we had the chance to get a visit from Marco Benevento, one of our favorite keyboards players along with John Medeski and Jackie Mittoo. Well you put musicians in a studio, what happens? They play together, so Marco ended playing organ and then clavinet for a reggae remix of Simmerdown Phabao was working on... You won't hear this kind of artists combination anywhere else so we hope you'll enjoy the unique groove & spirit in there.
