No offense, but seems like everyone nowadays listens to the track to know if it has mashup material, instead of actually enjoying the sound...
no offense taken :D but its just my opinion and I really like the vocals and beginning but not sure about the drop but its much better then their latest tracks

offtopic, but i fcking hate mashups. I'm in a club, dancing at Resurrection, and then suddenly crappy vocals of Human appear... wtf? Or Calling, also a brilliant instrumental, and then vocals of Leave the World Behind start. I mean those vocals are good in their own songs, but I don't see the point of adding vocals to such amazing instrumental tracks. Or In the Air with Rolling in the Deep... wtf? In the Air has its own vocals which are great, why removing great Rudy and adding much worse Adele?

I don't understand the mash up mania these days... Every live set you look at, the track list is something like this:
1. First song w/ Second song w/ Third song (acappela) w/ Forth Song (acapella)
2. First song (original) w/ First song (Someone's remix) w/ Second song (acapella)
etc.

Just play one song and then other and then third etc. Ok put one or two mashups, but this is too much

The breakdowns are really in the spirit of the original track, but meh drops...
Maybe one of their most unknown remixes.

Pretty good remix. The original is quite nice but I hated these electro bridges, now HRS gave it a good treatment. Love the vocals as well, 'what happens after dark' stays on your mind for hours.

Dis is really catchy shit. I like it a lot. :) The refrain/main hook could have been made differently... with some other instruments and maybe a little bitty different chord progression, but it's still ok.
