Song Production Information

The fashionable DIMITRI FROM PARIS remixes Motivation from legendary fusion band ATMOSFEAR.
The trick to this song is playing the brass, guitar, and bass in a refined manner.

Video Production Information

When I first heard the song, I imagined a smiling girl holding a rectangular airline company bag, so I went along with the idea and gave the backgrounds airport colors.
It feels like the days when I longed to travel overseas... I'm still young, though.
