The remix job for this track was entrusted to the world famous artist Rhadow.

Rhadow’s rework of ‘Roots’ reserves a deeper touch and harder beat when compared to the original. Dabbling into the Deep House and Chill-Out genres, his remix is led by a laid-back groove, whilst unleashing clean melodies as an accompaniment. Radu Remus, the man behind the Rhadow moniker, takes full control on dynamics, making it one of the strong points within his remix.
