27 years later, The Cranberries iconic hit gets SA dance remake

DJ Cosher is back with a new single… and much like some of his other recent releases, this Cape Town-based producer has taken inspiration from the past.

Teaming up with Oshri, DJ Cosher has taken on a song that was first released in 1994 by the Irish group headed by Dolores O'Riordan: The Cranberries. The song in question has been described as "a masterpiece of alternative rock" and won the Best Song Award at the 1995 MTV EMAs.
