Included on the official remix pack is Moti, Owen Norton, Said the Sky, Sneek, Total Ape, and a standout Rusko performance that plays as a deep/future house track with hard house elements. Brooding drums, futuristic synths, and interesting vocal edits mark the sonic space of Rusko’s re-imagining of the pair’s single.
