A producer of rising acclaim, Mwansa has proven himself time and time again as a resourceful and hard-working creator, his latest production demanding the expressive talent of Lauren-Joy. Together, across considerable distances, they’ve connected through the power of song, Lauren-Joy beguiles as she channels the energy of the universe in a mesmerising and enduring performance. 

‘At first I was pretty nervous, when I eventually received the track, I followed the same process that seems to work for me. Blasted the track with my body stretched out on the floor. Immersing myself in the track, reaching for the words and images it throws my way. What I love most about my process is that, as much as the process remains the same almost sacred, the words and images that every song gives me is a new story to tell. A story you can relive to your hearts content.’ - Lauren-Joy
