John Wizards 'Muizenberg' + Seiji & The 2 Bears Remixes

John Wizards 'Muizenberg,' receives remix treatment from Seiji and The Two Bears as a part of the Planet Mu single.

UK producer Seiji runs the original earthy hodgepodge through an MRI– the result being a synthetic new lifeform with lasers and snares. Taking things to the dancefloor, London-based duo The 2 Bears add spiritual repetition to churn out an even foot friendlier product than the original ball of vibes. Listen to the original "Muizenberg" and its remix treatment below.
