This song was written at the end of 2011, I remember it was just before christmas time...I was back from Berlin with a couple of ideas running an arpeggiator from the Waldorf Micro Q and working on it until I got this rhythm that eventually developed in the song itself.
At that time the sound of this track was a bit different: very much ItaloDisco-oriented with an heavy use of 80´s pads...moreover I had this idea to break the song in the bridge with a 70´s disco music piano (just to dislocate a bit the listening switching from a decade to another) and sing something regretful, just because it was fucking freezing.

However, as of 2012 the mood of that piece of synths was still a mixture between pure synthpop and mediterranean melodies in the choruses, then at the beginning of 2013 Davide mixed it definitely and worked in remote on the lead synths: finally we had something we liked, and as always we had it thanks to my buddy´s dedication and patience to stare in front of the pc screen for more than 3 hours in a row.
