After the standard kick drum and bassline introduction, a hard hitting melody on a classic square lead reminiscent of arcade games, paired with an infectious vocal hook from Donae'O leads into Lethal Bizzle spitting lyrics across the track and the drums build. Up until now, the track is merely a well engineered but fairly generic club build up, but on the phrase 'No Retreat, No Surrender,' all hell breaks loose!
With fat basslines beats that sound rubbery and synthetic as they hit (in a good way) and a mutated, snarling synth riff the song explodes, with high notes that reference classic Dutch house and a sense of groove that drives the song forward with relentless energy. As things drop off, the kick drum helps lead into the second build, with a snappy snare that heralds a little more Bizzle, combined with a transfer of the riff to a Marimba like sound that cools things off just for an instant before the track drops into another fantastic dance segment.
What makes this song so delightful is the combination of very refined production and an absolutely enormous low end thanks to the kick and basslines, with melodies that draw on the late 2000's Dutch House scene and re-imagine them, bringing them bang up to date. The lyrics from the original song are a sideshow, merely another instrument that Gonzalez utilises to lead into the drops, the real focus of the song and rightly so, cause if they don't get a dancefloor moving, nothing will!
Have a listen here and expect to hear the bassline coming at you from a big club subwoofer very soon!
