Citizen Kain: D-Formation is a good friend, we already worked together several times on tracks or myself as a producer for Beatfreak, so when he asked me to remix the track with him, I accepted without hesitation. I’m also an old fan of the music of D-Nox, it was a pleasure to remix him and his friends.
