Robert Copsey of Digital Spy gave the song a positive review stating:
Nobody does elusive DJ/producer better than Eric Prydz. Not only does he take yonks between albums singles, but he also goes by no fewer than nine separate monikers - our favourite being the oh-so macho 'Dukes of Sluca'. However, three years after his hypnotic instrumental hit 'Pjanoo', Prydz is returning under his familiar guise, seemingly eager to regain his place amidst today's Eurodance boffs.
After beginning in jangly electronic fashion, 'Niton' soon becomes a suitably uplifting techno-house rocket powered by a piano riff not too dissimilar to 'Pjanoo's'. Thankfully, the addition of bassy synths, thrilling electronic whooshes and surprisingly thoughtful lyrics ensure that this not only sounds bang-on-trend - but, just as importantly, nothing like a certain Gallic knob-twiddler with a very public affection for party jams.
