5.8.19 | Pop, Rinse, Repeat review 

The recently announced Skynem GT Remix of "Real Good Fight" has received its first review from music blog Pop, Rinse, Repeat, and it couldn't be better! 

"It takes skill and a mastery of your instrument to not overshadow the original work and Skynem GT has done just that. It's a much easier interpretation to the track all the while building and swelling into a hopeful anthem that just makes you feel good. Music has a way of reaching those parts of you that you didn't know you needed to be touched until it happens and Robert is doing a damn good job at that".
