The new remix holds special significance for TekNoNo, as “Alone” was the first track he championed as label manager at KMS Records.

When TekNoNo initially signed the original version, he was navigating a rough patch, feeling disconnected from both others and himself, echoing the song’s theme of loneliness. This emotional journey fueled his creative process, leading to several versions before ultimately crafting the final Afro-house remix. 

 “Transforming my personal challenges into this remix has been a profound journey. This version of ‘Alone’ not only represents a new musical direction but also my own process of healing and letting go.” – TekNoNo
