Kuartz: Smile

The latest release from Village Live went on sale last night and to coincide with the drop, they put out a new video too. Kuartz was responsible for one of 2017’s instrumental gems in the form of Shurikens and now he looks set to continue the brilliance with Kuartz FM.

Kuartz FM is available to buy now.
