ABOUT OPOLOPO:
The man behind the genre-crossing and ground breaking house remix of Gregory Porter's "1960 What?" in 2012 continues to move from strength to strength with his impeccable production prowess. He recently owned the #1 position on Traxsource for his stealth remix of Rapson's "Heat" on Defected and shows no signs of slowing down.

*Opolopo Remix - Opolopo strips things back on his remix of "WE RISE" and takes a minimal, tribal-esque approach that is both deep and soulful. Sprinkle in a lil' bit of his trademark quirkiness and voila - you're left with a masterly crafted mix that delivers on all fronts!

ABOUT MIKKI AFFLICK:
C.E.O. and head of A&R for her own digital label Soul Sun Soul Music founded in 2009. She's produced a string of highly charted and critically acclaimed releases such as "Dream Catcher," "Black Coffee," "Woman Rising" & "Afro Sun" and can boast support from some of house music's biggest International DJ's. Heavyweights such as David Morales, Louie Vega, Tony Humphries, Joe Clausell, Ron Trent, Danny Krivit, John "Jellybean" Benitez, Black Coffee and many more have all dropped Mikki's music to packed dance floors and with great success! Mikki's star continues to 'rise' with each new release and we are thrilled to welcome her to our extended MoHo fam.

**Mikki Afflick AfflickteD Vox Mix - When Solara first approached Mikki to do a remix she said "I want that stank AfflickteD Afro Sound. I want to hear Mikki Afflick!' And she delivered just that! Her mix is deep, yet Afro, but also has a soulful feel. 'Live' musicians worked around her signature sound. Her clever editing of the sessions, coupled with sly usage of sound effects capture the essence of the song, and serve as a perfect back drop for Solara's beautifully executed vocal.
