SUPAFLY '60 MINUTES OF SUPAFLY' HOSTED BY JERMEALE
Jermeale speaks to the talented 'Supafly' from New York to London and Ghana.
They discuss almost working with DMX before the legendary hiphop artist was admitted to New York hospital after suffering a heart attack on Friday, April 2nd 2021. They also chat about sampling a little Phil Collins and him loving their track and giving them the green light.
Supafly is best known for 2005's "Let's Get Down", which was a club hit around the world and used by the Australian television network FOX8 as their summer theme song; and for "Moving Too Fast" in late 2006, which sampled the Phil Collins' hit "Another Day in Paradise". Supafly picked up the Best Newcomer Award at the 2006 Urban Music Awards.
Supafly's sound is a blend of reggae, hip hop and dance. Their success has led them to sold out tours, performing to crowds of up to 25,000.
Now London based, the essence of their sun-filled sound developed partly from Mister P and wOne's stint in Australia. Inspired by the sunshine and the live music scene in Melbourne, their time away proved to be an inspiration for Supafly's signature tune, "Let's Get Down". It was written on one of the hottest days in Australia's history.

Fly With The Angels (Imanbek Remix)
Imanbek has burst onto the scene in a way most young producers can only dream of. His remix of Saint Jhn’s ‘Roses’, which he produced while holding down a day job at his local train station in Kazakhstan, now has over a billion streams on Spotify, reached #1 in the UK singles chart and #4 on the US billboard chart, catapulting the relatively unknown producer to stardom. Now he makes his D4 D4NCE debut remixing London based duo Supafly’s ‘Fly With The Angles’ featuring Canadian songstress Kiesza. With its thick, rubbery bassline, atmospheric builds and irresistibly catchy melody, once again we see Imanbek’s Midas touch remix abilities.
