The more I listen to it, the better it gets (as it happens every year). Nice anthem tbh, the melody albeit slightly generic, gives the track a lot of summer feeling. The track does feel rushed at some points and the pitch shift of the second climax sounds lazy. But the mid-intro and the climax are pretty good.

After reading it, I agree with a guy saying this fits more the DQ1 Australia style... Still have to get used to it

Love this. Very decent anthem :) has the proper summer feeling. I just hope it wont take months to release the extended mix. Still doesnt beat the DBSTF anthem :P

just one tiny thing bothering me, i kinda wish producers would finally stop making these 2nd climaxes in a different key, its getting soooooo overused, really. But hey, rocking tune anyway.

Wow, strange thing that it suddenly popped up on Spotify just without any announcement on the Q-Dance socials or whatsoever.

OT: very decent anthem! Not the best ever, but it fits the Defqon feeling very well!

The kick in the midintro is beautiful, not sure what I should think of that screaming vocal actually. Kinda gives the track its purpose but not sure if I like it. Midintro is really cool.
Definitely not a fan of the melody for now, its just a scale which is going down, doesnt appeal to me whatsoever. Also the keyswitch can be a beautiful thing for me when its built up, not when it just suddenly happens.
I feel like the keyswitch in here just gives the track artifical variation, not a real one.
Production quality is topnotch as always, but it feels like a filler track.
But such anthems tend to grow on me.

I actually feel bad for expecting more from them, because I can imagine how much of a pressure they got on their shoulders with all the attention HHZ gets, P1 gets and a Defqon.1 anthem usually gets.
Sometimes something beautiful can happen out of pressure, but definitely now always. I am not disappointed, I am absolutely okay with the fact that this probably won't go in the history books as best defqon.1 anthem ever. That should be allowed.

Really really random fact but i've just been listening back to old Defqon anthems and the 2005 anthem, The Prophet - Emergency Call (Masochist remix at least), has the Maximum Force vocal sample in it. This won't improve your life in any way but i just noticed it :rofl:

Awesome anthem! I just kinda wished that there was the old defqon 1 voice, but other than that, great track!

Sounds much better in HQ, I am completely satisfied with the melody. Mid-intro is majestic!
I'd give it like 9/10 just because it sounds kinda like the closing track
