“How the track was put together:

The original Chakakhan version is extremely over produced, so it took me a while to get the same sort of result.

The machine drums at the start, which keeps on running throughout the whole track, was originally done using a DMX, Linn and TR808. All these can now perfectly be recreated inside Reel Machines by XLN-Audio.
I wasn’t really pleased with Reel Machines initially, but having given it a second chance it’s rather convincing and pleasant to work with.
After the rap intro Addictive Drums kick in, to put another layer of drums ontop and to give it a live feel, which I do with all my tracks.
My aim is always to find the middle between the original recording and a live feel.

I could have left Melle Mel rap out, unless I had the original isolated track, but no one has that luxury, so I did it myself.
Only then I realized how difficult that rap was. Not having an American accent and of course Melle’s deeper voice makes it somewhat sound silly, but it’s effective enough (I hope?).

A lot of Prophet-5 and Jupiter-8 was used, especially all the brass sounds.
The harmonica was another difficult thing to replicate.
I used a sample from my TR-Rack.
The Minimoog is completely unprocessed.”
