“Lover Motion” included production by Gus Franklin and Haima Marriott (Architecture in Helsinki) who re-effected and mixed the recordings, with Franklin and Lachlan Dickie (one half of film directing duo Krozm) also providing live-drums to some of the original tracks. As well, Cut Copy’s Dan Whitford reached into his collection of vintage synths to provide keyboard programming, producing some of the classic keyboard parts.
