Popular rock act Maroon 5 will release a remix disc entitled Call And Response on December 9th 2008, albeit a Blue Schooler short of a masterpiece. Kno was hand-picked to rework one of Maroon 5’s previous tracks, and along with notable producers Just Blaze, ?uestlove, DJ Premier and others went about the task of re-working the vocals of lead singer Adam Levine (Kanye West’s "Heard Em’ Say" & Alicia Keys’ "Wild Horses") and studio stem files for a track of their choosing. Unfortunately, Kno’s contribution to the batch had to be left off of the final tracklisting by A&M Records at the last minute due to a sample clearance issue, although there is still a chance the track will find an official home if the problems are worked out. Thanks to Brandon Phelps, Adam Levine & the band and everyone at Octone for the opportunity, hopefully this will lead to more great music in the future // www.QN5.com.
