You may remember this banger from 2021! Now SoCal-based MNTRA comes out swinging with his genre-bending remix of Wolfgang Lohr’s “Keep On Smilin”.
In 2021 Wolfgang Lohr, Emma Lea and Ashley Slater have dropped a classic Electro Swing banger that invited us to dance and celebrate life.
Equipped with unique talent and originality in his blueprint, MNTRA flings that track between on-the-grid groovesand and that classic electro swing rhythm, taking you on a musical journey through bigband samples and an intoxicating bounce that transports you back to a dancefloorset in the 1920’s.
His psy-swing approach has brought upon a more than worthy remix that is likely to keep us moving this year. Stay tuned for round two of “Keep On Smilin”!
