“Everyone suddenly started wearing masks because of Covid-19 and loads of people connected it with us having masks as part of our image. I thought let’s try and do something good out of this, and the ‘Top One, Nice One, Get Sorted” hook on the track has been replaced by ‘Top One, Nice One, self Isol-8’. The message is to be careful out there and let’s raise money for a good cause”, said Mark.
All monies the release gener8s will go to the Meals For The NHS Fund. The group, record label Network and distributor Above Board will also pass all earnings on to the charity.
The remix has been rush-released for streaming services from Friday 17th and available on digital download platforms from Friday April 24th. Recently garnering support and rotation from BBC Radio 1 and global DJ’s and media.
