Madrid-based hip-hop, jazz, funk, DJ and producer AL-X ROCKS teams up with up there Cleveland rapper Replife, who makes his second appearance on a Lovemonk slab o' wax after his collaboration with the mighty Boohgaloo Zoo. The defiant head-bopper that is “Get´em Up” comes in two versions: the original is a straightforward hip-hop beat supporting a sturdy guitar riff, while the flipside may be its laid-back counterpart.
