Piñata’s beats are sim­ple com­pared to some el­e­ments of the track, but get­ting them sound­ing right was ex­tremely im­por­tant to Rob­bie. “All this stuff is re­ally, re­ally sim­ple sounds. Some of it’s from the KSHMR pack, a lot of it’s from old Vengeance house packs, and things like that,” he re­veals. “It’s just about com­bin­ing the right sounds, that’s what I strug­gle most with. Then we have this Ma­jor Lazer Lean On

style per­cus­sive loop, and that’s it for the drums. I’ve lay­ered two kicks which I usu­ally don’t do, but since this was an EDM idea, I re­ally re­ally needed that crispy top end. The main kick is al­ready punchy as it is, but I added this knock­ing kick on top just to give it some more punch. The main kick is go­ing through a bit of OTT, a bit of Sat­u­ra­tor – noth­ing crazy – and the top kick is just a ba­sic kick I’ve sliced all the low-end out of.”
