After the success of the tune last year, I thought it might be cool to upload the instrumental of Naive to the public domain. You can stream the beat via SoundCloud and/or download it there too. Would be cool to hear (or even see) some different versions – singers/rappers/dancers/musicians, show me what you got. Send your versions/videos to info@cynikalmusic.com.

I wrote this a little while ago and got Naye to jump on the hook in a session at Zee Breezy’s studio. Strangely enough, I never ended up recording my vocals, but I felt too strongly about the song to let it just slide so I recorded them a few days ago, packaged them and here we are! This is “Just Friends”, a refix of Musiq Soulchild’s classic Neo Soul anthem (one of my favourite tunes!)
