The Original Mix intros with a seriously thumping kick drum that leave a trail of low end in its wake. Sharp claps sit over a cool rhythmic percussions section as a rumbling bassline bubbles up from below. A dark and sinister vocal comes through demanding to get on the floor as the beats pound you into submission. A top notch cut no doubt and a must have track.
