With strong remix treatments from Sir LSG, Jonathan Meyer and Rune this song ought to repeat the success of the duos previous singles.

UK born singer / songwriter Joseph Junior grew up on a musical diet combining Classic Soul, Disco, Afro Beat and some Jazz, too.

Invitations to work alongside big guns such as Omar, Roachford, Mica Paris, Jocelyn Brown and Gwen McCrae followed. When he started to work with MAQman on Soulful House Music, a whole new world for him opened which he ever since enriches with his meaningful songs.

MAQman is an eclectic music producer and DJ residing currently in Vietnam. He started out with soulful down- and mid-tempo tracks, but soon focused on House Music. Next to his regular cohort Joseph Junior he worked with vocalists like Selina Campbell with who he landed in the USA Dance Top 40 instantly with their first release some years ago. The debut release of MAQman on GOGO Music named "I Don't See Love", was a seductive and meaningful vocal tune, which scored the rare and most wanted 10/10 mark in the renowned House Magazine 5 (Chicago). His second outing on GOGO Music "No Better Love" came in August 2012 and Spirit of House (Switzerland) stated: "Another definite moment in Soulful House history".

Since then he managed to replenish the scene with his unique style, which is a perfect balance between groove and dance floor energy, expanding itself from house music to tribal sounds and refined stylistic solutions.
