  • This song features the voices of Javeon and Nikki Cislyn. Clean Bandit met the latter vocalist through the group's studio space which is part of a council project in London where they take on trainees in music production from the local area. Cellist Grace Chatto told HMV.com: "Some of the trainees we had turned out to be incredible singers, Nikki Cislyn came to us that way, she's on three songs on the album and she's now writing for other people."
  • Clean Bandit wrote this with Nikki Cislyn and Nigerian-descended production whiz Uzoechi Emenike (a.k.a. MNEK), who scored his first UK #1 hit in April 2013 as a co-writer on Duke Dumont and AME's club anthem "Need U (100%)." The song deals with the theme of being in a club.
