We built the track with drums programmed at the beginning and then Mike exeter I did a bass and keyboard demo, and added my guitar solos, just to give us an idea of ​​what it would sound like. Then we add the strings. I worked with string sections in SATURDAY albums before, but this was a whole new experience. “

I’ve had the main part for a while and just added a few new parts to it. Then I added these other more somber riffs to blend in with this perfume idea. I really liked the idea of ​​using some violins and cellos and stuff, and we did it on this track. “

I met Sergio through another friend of mine, and Sergio he kindly sent me a box of his fragrances and asked if I’d be interested in creating my own, which I certainly wasn’t expecting. Sergio He suggested that I create a list of things that I like to smell. He developed a few different samples from my suggestions and I chose the one I like. “
