Berlin-based, by way of Washington, DC, Zulu Pearls is pleased to share "Not Like The Others (Young Marco Remix)." "Young Marco was the first person I thought of when we decided to flesh out this release with remixes," explains Zulu Pearl's creative force Zach Van Hoozer. "We've known him for a long while now and he's been friends with my guitarist from Amsterdam since forever. It's been great to watch him keep upping his DJ/Producer game and create a vibe all his own, which is a victory in itself. I was really excited we could get him on board, since he feels like part of our extended family."
"Zulu Pearls are the best dudes and seriously one of my favorite bands, continues Young Marco. This is what I listen to when I'm travelling. I don't listen to dance music on a plane, only douchebags and gym freaks listen to dance music on a plane. Anyway, I was listening to a lot of proto kwaito and african bubblegum stuff while I was making this remix and I think that inspired some bits of the remix. I'm pretty psyched on it cause its a totally different thing than the awesome OG, but I think it works without sounding like a lame clubby band remix."
