Andy Van (Madison Avenue / Vicious Co-Founder) comments:
“We wanted a cool techy remix for Don’t Call Me Baby for Vicious 30 and when Joshwa said yes we were incredibly stoked… and then, 2 weeks later he delivered an awesome Tech house groover taking DCMB to another level, ready to engage clubland once again.”
“I remember hearing this when I was a kid! Such a dope tune to flip and I love seeing it go off across the world at every party I’ve played it. Buzzing to have been asked to put my own touch on this classic!”
