An Afro-House Remix Of Drake's 'Know Yourself'

Netherlands-based producers DJFasta & Kid Kayne drop a stomping afro-house remix of Drake's 'If You're Reading This It's Too Late' standout.


Netherlands-based producers DJFasta and Kid Kayne recently posted this stomping afro-house reworking of Drake's If You're Reading This It's Too Late standout "Know Yourself" as a free loosey on Soundcloud.
