An industry executive friend of Basement Jaxx named Nick Worthington helped spark the idea for this song. Simon Ratcliffe of the duo recalled to Edge of the Net
: "For this album, we employed the services of an A&R guy, who A&R'ed our first two albums. We had went our separate ways and he went on to form his own company. We asked him for his opinions on a freelance basis. He said, 'Yeah, you should do something that's on that tip... that sort of deep house vibe that's going on at the moment.'"
"So, after that meeting, I went immediately in to the writing room and I played the chords and I played the bass line, the strings and the beat," Ratcliffe continued. "I got the whole thing and felt this feels cool. Then, Felix (Buxton) heard it and he started singing some melody and came up with the words."
