The crowd is eagerly anticipating that decisive and rhythmic thump to get the place literally hopping. Then just as the music reaches its peak and the bass is about to blast through the venue, BOOM. The track is purposefully interrupted by "True" by Spandau Ballet. It was a trick that DJs used to pull all the time, which has often gotten mixed reception from audiences.
