  • songfacts ®
  • This bass-laden carnival track samples the song "Dibby Dibby" by the Moombahton St. Louis producer Jay Fay. (Moombahton is a fusion genre of house music and reggaetón. The name was coined by American DJ and producer Dave Nada as a blend of Dutch house DJ Chuckie's track "Moombah" and reggaetón).

    According to the press release, having decided that he wanted to give Jay Fay's original "Dibby Dibby" a carnival vibe, Fresh, "conducted exhaustive, encyclopedic research into traditional Brazilian drum beats to re-create an authentic carnival sound, re-playing and re-creating individual drum beats and sounds himself."
  • The song features additional vocals from the UK Garage legend Ms. Dynamite, who is best known for her 2002 Mercury Prize winning album, A Little Deeper. She also was a featured vocalist on Katy B's 2010 hit single, "Lights On."
  • The song's music video was directed by The Sacred Egg, who also worked with Breach on their clips for "Jack" and "Everything You Never Had (We Had It All)." The visual, which was shot in Middlesex, ends up with a house party featuring Fresh and Ms. Dynamite.
