Listen To Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike & Nicky Romero’s Single “Everybody Clap” Here:
The song introduces us to a repeated line of the title remixed in a club-heavy track, it’s clear from the get-go that these DJs are here to bring it. Soon enough it turns into a full-on house track with a few techno beats thrown in, taking us right to the dancefloor at Tomorrowland whilst CO2 cannon blasts out cool air. Throughout the song, they mess around with the vocal which just uses the song’s title as its lyrics, giving us different versions and spins. As we near the halfway point, though, we start to actually hear people clapping, turning that sound into part of the beat of the track. Although it reminds us slightly of football chants, the clapping is a unique twist on the times that artists encourage an audience to clap to the beat of the song – now club-goers can get involved. We can so imagine everybody on a dancefloor clapping in line with the beat of the track.
“Everybody Clap” is available to download and stream right now, via Protocol Records. The extended version of the track can be heard above.
