Doperoot's very own Lenny Emery collaborated with 4AM's DJ Phresh to turn Sarah Charness & The Discokillerz shimmering pop anthem "Grip" into a deep, tropical, floor-smasher. The tune originally features vocals from Naughty Boy's Vocalist Jem Cooke and strings from Sony's violinist Sarah Charness, but with Lenny and Phresh's mix, you can feel the deep bass inspired by Lenny's recent European Tour and housey piano-stabs inspired by Phresh's DJ gigs all over the states.
