When Poland based reggae producer xROB BLACK reached out to Happy As A Lark wondering about a collaboration, we immediately fell in love with an instrumental track he sent ominously titled 'Majestic 12 Underground'. The song has a distinctive soulfulness that resonated strongly with our musical tastes, and it wasn't long before a lush vocal melody began to reveal itself - but who to sing it? In our musical escapades we've been fortunate enough to meet and work with many legendary artists - and it wasn't long before the obvious choice came to mind in the form of Chicago soul legend Renaldo Domino (who we've been trying to fit into the right project for quite some time).

And while falsetto vocals over a reggae track are nothing new (i.e. Junior Soul aka Junior Murvin amongst many others), the distinctive sweet-soul style of Renaldo's voice (see 'Not Too Cool To Cry' on the Twinight label) tilts this track definitively into a bubbly summertime, topdown, cruising kind-of-jam.

But why stop there? What if the track also featured a top-shelf veteran deejay toasting in fine style? As Lone Ranger would say ... "riiiiiiight!"
