“Following their promising debut remix of ‘Everything Is Under Control’ (featured on the B side) that got the thumbs up from the mighty Pendulum who included it in their Essential Mix for Radio 1, the Qemists are are back reworking ‘Tru Skool’ for the drum and bass dancefloors.

Starting with Roots Manuva’s distinctive delivery that punctuates the track throughout, Qemists switch beats effortlessly to deliver a floor killer that juggles with style the flavours of the original version. Supported by Andy C and sitting perfectly in his highly-fuelled sets, ‘Tru Skool’ confirms the Qemists as a young crew to watch out for.”
