GreatGrandpa, 78, with long experience as a drummer and as a musician for decades in all genres from jazz and onward, who started a career as a producer at 70 years of age, thought the song should be recorded wen he first heard Identity. 
SplitVision had more songs that he liked and the result is a CD "What's The Matter With U?" with 13 original tracks. Every song has its own style: Native Chant Reggae, Native Reggae Pop, Punk Rock, Bluegrass Calypso, Reggae Pop, Grunge, New Orleans', Jazz Afro Reggae, Samba Reggae (in Spanish with Rap), Blues Pop, Ballad, Roots Reggae DUB. 
The duo has released 11 digital tracks on the web (iTunes, Amazon, CDon.com and many more)
Slowly but constant the curves are rising on the internet. A lot of good words from fans, colleges, promoters, Dj's etc has come their way. SplitVision & GreatGrandpa has gained top chart positions both locally and in Sweden since the start 2011 and now they have over 30 000 fans from all over the world. 
This is a low budget high quality production with skilled guesting friend musicians, carefully picked for each song, if needed.
