Songfacts®:

  • Sub Focus told MusicRadar.com the story behind this song: "I've been doing a lot of sampling from the early '90s," he said. "There are quite a few acapellas that you can find; I'd really geek out and find out which versions of the original releases had the acapella on them, then try and buy the vinyl or CDs online to get the highest quality versions possible."

    "That's how this track started - by chopping these up, and coming up with ideas from there," he continued. "It ended up with me getting session musicians in to recreate some of the samples, which really freshened up the song."
  • The vocals are performed by Yolanda Quartey, who is a member of the Bristol country/soul band Phantom Limb. She also sung on the chorus of Chase & Status' hit single, "Blind Faith."
