Esta brings out his entire team of skillfull and magical producers made up of Jarreau Vandal, Mr. Carmack & Sam Gellaitry to deliver this soon to be hit. These established and even more talented producers come together to remix Vic Mensa's hit "Down On My Luck", which was released in June of 2014. The steady bass and the unique sounds of water and bells has the finesse and subtlety of Mr.Carmack written all over it. This isn't the first collaboration between the two California natives (Mr.Carmack and Esta), last year they released "Géometrik" which sky rocketed up the charts and became proof that these two are the real deal. The energetic beat is complemented perfectly with the lyrics and catchy melodies of Mensa. It is rumored this song was dropped to commemorate Mensa on signing with Jay Z's record label, Roc Nation. Its nice to see bigger names like Esta and Mr. Carmack working with Jarreau Vandal and Sam Gellaitry. Vandal and Gellaitry both have the talent, but the exposure and fan base is just not the same. This song is classified as a banger, with the dynamic duo of Esta and Mr.Carmack, this song screams success.
