We had some extra songs laying around that are not going on the new project so I said, lets package them up with the 20/20 EP, make it a Full Album and release for retail. He thought it was a good idea so we went with it. I love working with my brother Focus… He and I have a great chemistry when it comes to creating music but we are also great friends who get together with our families over dinner and hangout as well”. – Fokis
