We were luckily enough to chat with DJ Pope to go through the album in depth, track by track.
Over the years, Get Physical have consistently remained a source of forward-thinking underground House music. Headed up by M.A.N.D.Y. Booka Shade and DJ T, there was no way this couldn’t work.. Their label has been nothing short of influential, responsible for unearthing some of the finest electronic talent in the game today, the likes of Dixon, Catz N Dogz, Azari & III, SIS, Flashmob, Blond:ish,- the list goes on.

We caught up with Jazzuelle to dive into the album in depth.
