Pierluigi Giombini said:
"I recorded this track at "Titania" studios in rome, using the Piano as the only acoustic instrument, along with an oberheim and my beloved minimoog for the different sounds. The drum sounds were generated by a mix of the linn drum machine and the simmons drum sinth. Contrary to what some people might assume, all the keyboard sinth sounds were played in real time by myself, not a sequencer."
