He has preserved the moody feel of the original track as well as some of the emotional elements, while at the same time adding in a seductive house feel to the track that brings a lot of energy and emotion to it. Daithí goes on to say,
“I guess when I came across the original song the first thing that hit me was the vocal melody, it has a really strong rhythmic aspect to it, which I could really see sounding good with a house beat. I like house music with a lot of feeling in it, so I wanted to make the track feel kind of melancholy, but with a lot of energy. I wanted it to sound like dancing through the pain of a break up, in a dark room full of people. It’s one of those tracks that just fall into place really naturally, I had the first cut of the track done in one day at my studio in Galway, with all the lights off.“
