"Adapting to the Lazarus camp's late-night formula, Sontag tapers his electro bombast to little more than a whisper of metallic cackles that adds a subtle texture to the track's soft-edged thump. Tiga has a reputation for exuding electro sleaze, so his adoption of lyrics from Prince's "When Doves Cry" makes for a natural fit, but even with the Purple One's lyrics in the mix, Sontag has chosen to tone down his sexed-up swagger as well."

"Birds chirp in the distance and broad-stroke atmospherics lift the mood, as Alexander's own musings—"I feel so good right now," "I'm lost in the music"—put the track's sentiment into words. Ambient elements swirl around the rolling drum-machine rhythms with a cotton candy lightness, imparting a dream-like quality that drifts back in time to a different era of underground club sounds."

"Much like early Mark E or The Revenge, [The Dead Rose Music Compnay] displays an uncanny ability for splicing up dusty dancefloor gems from the '70s and reconstructing them into hypnotic, loopy groovers. He makes the sort of tracks that wrap listeners up in the fuzzy warmth of vintage R 'n' B and reverb, but still command attention at the discerning club nights that the Let's Play House collective is known for organizing."
