The off-time syncopated lead rhythms create during the break down satisfies the overall structure as it counterbalances the main melodies.
Gansta rap-inspired “4 O’clock” has a powerful melody that channels anger and frustration. This hip-hop driven melody over a steady EDM beat blends the two worlds and creates a powerful instrumental piece which will release the dancer into a maniacal rage.
