In a automobile like this, what could be the primary music you’d play? For 50, it was Above & Beyond. Yup, that’s proper. More particularly, it was “Cold Feet“, which options vocals from “Alright Now” collaborator, Justine Suissa. He even says himself, “that is the music you play within the Maybach”. It’s invigorating rhythm blended with Justine’s soothing voice is actually good by itself. Imagine listening to it in a Maybach?
What makes this story even higher is Paavo’s reply to the tweet saying, “good music style mate :)”. Does this imply a potential collaboration sooner or later? Probably not, however this made our, and positively Paavo’s, day. We applaud your style in music, 50.
