"I always had the documentary in mind, but the turning point was deciding to make music based on my DNA," Residente explained in a feature from Billboard's latest issue.
"Each sound, each word, even the track order has a reason. We began in Siberia because that's the birth place of everything. War is in the middle, as well as 'Apocaliptica,' which we recorded in Beijing, and talks about the end of the world, because the pollution makes it seem that way... It's an album that needs to be discovered many times."
