His track remix features jacking baseline warps and twists beneath the powerful vocal utterance "right about now, the funk soul brother here," with percussive components pushed by a four-to-the-floor kick drum. An exhilarated mood of high intensity disco groove is created by the ensemble of conga drums rattling alongside signature Todd chops.
