Undeniably funky and sonically cohesive, ‘When U Get Back’ is the brand new music video from N8N.
Originally written and performed by Funk and R&B musician Jon Cleary, the track was produced by Deaf Ears: a production duo from Belgium who have collaborated with N8N live on stage and in the studio using a combination of vintage gear and plugins to recreate the quintessential production style of the 80’s new jack swing era.
Inspired by Bruno Mars’ Finesse, Michael Jackson’s Remember the Time and Bobby Brown’s My Prerogative, When U Get Back is the second single from N8N’s 5th album. This concept album is a throwback to N8N’s youth, and the eighties funk he grew up listening to.
