Opening the track and setting the scene for what is to come, an excitable crowd can be heard lapping up the voice of an energetic performer. The duo make full use of a range of instruments, from the sophisticated piano keys, rhythm infused drums and increase of excitement throughout resulting in a triumphant crescendo. This is music to make you dance. Dennis explains that “it was so nice to collaborate with Josh on this one, we have shared many moments together. He sent me a tribal Latin idea that he was working on and I loved it, he then sent me the project and we started to work on it together. I’m so happy to release this on Crosstown Rebels”. Dripping in atmosphere, industry heavyweights Gorgon City are on remix duty and create a track reminiscent of the euphoric big stage shows.
