  • Lyrics
  • This samples Outlander's rave anthem "The Vamp," which Liam Howlett (Keyboards, producer) told Time Out Dubai, "was a "huge influence on me."
    The song also samples "I Just Wanna Get Along" from The Breeders' 1993 album Last Splash. Another song from Last Splash, "S.O.S.", was sampled on The Prodigy's 1996 hit record, "Firestarter."
  • MC/vocalist Maxim told Time Out Dubai: "We started working on this about eight years ago. It's had about 30 versions since then. None of them seemed to work, but we kept going back to it. I was always on Liam's case about it."
