album version and its instrumental produced in full by Jesse Dangerously;
remix version and its instrumental produced as friends by Shael Riley and Ty Guenly of chip-pop outfit the Double Ice Backfire;
Audra Williams wrote and performed her own raps and tapdance in full! She also was the little kid you hear sampled, saying "Nuts to that, Spazmodeus!" It's from an episode of The Littlest Hobo (season 3) about little kids LARPing. She played "Princess Theaella." That's her, in 1983.
Bad DJ Budget Cuts is just Jesse, but he's embarrassed.
album version and instrumental mixed by Dave Plowman, and presumably Shael & Ty mixed their version I DON'T REALLY KNOW.
Scratches used without permission from records by Cadence Weapon and Boogie Boys.
The music video that comes delightfully with the album was directed by Charlotte Wolfe and cinematographed by Tyson Burger.
