The Sunburst Band's 'Rough Times' has been one of the most enduringly popular vocal tracks on the house scene over the last few years. Of course this is partly because its a fantastic song, written by no other than Ashford and Simpson, one of the greatest song writing teams of all time. Unfortunately the lyrics are just as pertinent now as when the track was released in 2008, right at the beginning to the economic downturn. Sean McCabe has done a fantastic job of reinterpreting this anthem giving it a new lease of life. Firstly his Club Mix gives the track an old MAW feel, whereas the Nu Disco Mix is reminiscent of the Joey Negro version of 'Backfired', while his Real Deal Dub is pure timeless up-tempo garage and sure to get played for many years to come.
