Two-track single, B-side features a C2 (Carl Craig) edit. "Sebastien San grew up with the sounds of Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder, Prince, and Serge Gainsbourg. In the early '80s, he got into the new wave and industrial scene and was heavily inspired by Depeche Mode, Cabaret Voltaire, Fad Gadget, Human League, Front 242, and Severed Heads, amongst many others. The emerging club culture of the mid-'80s, as well as the birth of Detroit techno and Chicago house had an even greater impact on him. He consequently landed a job at a local record store where he could get his hands on all those great records. It also helped him to launch his own party series where he could play those fabulous tracks. By the mid-'90s, Sebastien founded his own (and now defunct) record label called Shield Records. During that time, he had the chance to collaborate with artists such as Kirk DeGiorgio, Kevin Saunderson and Fabrice Lig, to name a few. 'It was Fabrice who really turned me into the production side of music. He convinced me to buy synthesizers and drum machines.' Another key factor was Sebastien's meeting with Mad Mike of Underground Resistance in Detroit at the infamous Submerge building. As Sebastien became more familiar with production techniques and studio equipment, he decided to concentrate full-time on music production. He developed his very own style which combines deep atmospheric strings, sweet melodies, and funky beats and rhythms, releasing records on Gigolo Records and Planet E, among others."
