Putting out a quality product was the driving force behind the project. As such, the initial track for the single was laid at the world renown, Tuff Gong Recording Studio by Oniel “Mondays” Smith. The band also worked with one of Jamaica’s top industry talent, Mr. Grub Cooper of Stage Recording Studio who arranged and sung harmony vocals on the track with additional recordings done by Douglas “Doug” Flanigan. Courtland “Gizmo” White was also a key player in getting the sound quality up to industry standards.

The band has made the business decision to independently release their own work. They are managed by a former Universal Music Group Finance Manager with extensive knowledge in the business aspect of the music industry. The team works extremely well together fostering trust and respect all the way around.
The project was well received by prerelease sampling groups. Mikey General stated “The dub mix tuff! We have a good product to run with”. Another reviewer stated “The video mix is a hit for sure!”.
