You can’t beat a cover if it’s done well and this one actually hits the spot, as Vienna’s Mannix joins forces with VillaLife and vocalist Andre Espeut to breathe new life into Junior’s much loved 80’s classic, "Mama Used To Say".

Packed with live instrumentation from infectious guitar licks, powerful live bass to a beautiful trumpet performance, this classy ditty has been done properly!

Andre Espeut delivers a soul drenched vocal performance, very respectful of the original, yet putting his own creative vibes on it. And continuing the feel good story, Brazil’s Disco House veteran DJ Meme offers a superb 80’s flavoured Disco remix, rounding off this sing-a-long slab of happiness. Well done guys!
