The album features several talented singers. The lead single ‘Travel In Time’ features Pascal Finkenauer on vocals. Other collaborations include urban-folk artist Joseh, Sarah Blackwood of Client and Dubstar, the multiple award-winning Greek vocalist/composer Marietta Fafouti, Berlin based but Australia made Eliza Hiscox and German singer Marian Gold, co-founder of legendary synth-pop band Alphaville.
