Taking on Earth, Wind & Fire’s renowned track “Boogie Wonderland“, the infused veil energy certainly packs an infectious punch.
Keeping the old school disco vibes alive, Mr. Belt and Wezol explain why they chose to re-work such a disco classic:
Sam (Wezol): “After re-working 60’s rock classic ‘Somebody To Love’ by Jefferson Airplane and after reworking 90’s house classic ‘Finally’ by CeCe Peniston it was now time to re-work an old disco classic.. and when you say disco you say Earth, Wind & Fire’s ‘Boogie Wonderland’. As with every re-work I do I really tried to stay humble and keep the old school disco vibes throughout the whole track. I think I quite achieved that.”
Bart (Mr. Belt): “The first response on the track in the clubs was really good as well; a lot of people tend to know the vocal; although it’s mostly before their time.”
Sam (Wezol): “We now did the 60’s, 70’s and 90’s.. Our next re-work should be from the 80s, haha!”
