With jungle bongos, clapping beats and a killer bass hook, L.A. production duo Classixx turn up the heat with their latest track ‘Holding On’, from their forthcoming debut, Hanging Gardens.
It’s a brilliantly uplifting piece of disco dance bound to cheer up the elongated winter we’re struggling through. The classic 90s chord progression is wrapped up in a funk-fueled rhythm and impatient vocal sample that scream Summer anthem – let’s hope it hangs around for the sunshine.
If Classixx’s original track feels like the accompaniment to a hedonistic rave, then fellow Los Angeles resident, Jerome LOL’s remix is the soundtrack to the more laid-back, heady results that follow.
With crisp percussion and sparkling synths, its slower pace but maintained warmth, takes the track from disco to lounge and is an entirely enjoyable comedown from the original. Think laying out by the pool with this gentle remix – listen below.
