Besides being a full- time jazz musician, Gampl always loved 80s stuff, The components and the special sounds (Synths) that were used. Always striving to get a perfect 80s sounding record. Inspirations come from rock: Michael McDonald or Kenny Loggins, or the disco era: Michael Jackson and his Master Quincy Jones, Chaka Khan, D'Train or just the very convertible Herbie Hancock.
"I think they left enough ideas to work with.
Its just the same with jazz, I like the old because it sounds old."
