Toxic, written by Jewly and produced by Moon Pilot, has been recorded and mixed (analog) by Peter Deimel (DE) at the legendary Black Box studio with a remarkable team: Romain Lejeune (F) on guitar, Vincent Lechevallier (F) on drums (ref: Pony Pony Run Run, HollySiz,…), the violinist Richard Bourreau (F), the cellist Jean-Baptiste Noujaim (F) and guests like the guitarists Justin Adams (UK) (ref: Robert Plant, Sinead O’Connor,…), Axel Bauer (F), Pascal Danaë de Delgres (F) and Phil Spalding (UK) on bass (ref: Mick Jagger, Robbie Williams, Mike Oldfield…). Toxic has been mastered by Mike Marsh at The Exchange (UK).
