The EP was recorded by a collaboration of producers.
Blakk Productions, Lightstain Studios and Vlagskip Productions worked on selective tracks.
The EP contains the signature MMM strong chorus together with an ensemble of other instruments. The EP design was done by the talented Peter Crafford. The EP consists of eight tracks. Hit songs like ‘Mooirivier’, ‘Vuur teen Vuur’ and their new single, ‘Deurnag’ are all part of the release, together with a first time English track, ‘Rosemary’.
“It took us two years to compile and record a handpicked bunch of songs. Every song on this EP speaks about the tough, but enjoyable journey that we had the past two years. I hope that when people listen to the music, they’ll engage in their own journeys with hope.”
