To celebrate the release of QuESt‘s new LP “The Reason – A Defence Mechanism” I was passed a leaked track called “If You Wanna”. The single was produced by A.I(ICE) who is QuESt‘s in-house producer, and is a taste of what’s to expect on the album. In conjunction with the release, QuESt has also re-launched YesIAmQuESt which is the official website for new music and updates. You can listen to QuESt – If You Wanna on the player below.
