With minor tribal influences, what this track really devotes itself to is techy enervation, complete with stutter-type edits, a slightly old-skool electro-sounding bassline, a peaking, drawn-out quivering noise right out of a 60s sci-fi B-movie, and cute synth stabs that come in near the end to keep things interesting as the hooks begin to wind down. Those jocks looking to make sure their audience are wide-awake and on their toes could find the A-side edging into their set as they start to wind the tension up.
On the flip we have Guy Gerber (of recent "Stoppage Time" on Bedrock fame) laying down tight, layered, catylistic percussion over the also tightened up electro bassline, with sparing use of the many and varied original elements, including the main vocal samples "it's time for" and "revolution", which refreshingly not once get put together - but then maybe that's up to you!
Techy fills and a dynamic synth line, along with well-placed edits, a short breakdown, and subtle techno hats later in the piece create energy and drive, without sending the audience to the hardware store looking for a decibel meter. A cool track to keep the the night rolling once you've got it up to speed, or to head in a techno direction, I could get into this kind of revolution.
