French producer Dombresky brings back the heat, as he drops a vigorous remix of BLOND:ISH & Nico De Andrea’s widely acclaimed hit “Hold Tight” (feat. Darla Jade). A fluid, progressive styled vocal tune in its original shape, the Frenchman takes the song straight to the club, with lively piano rhythms, electrifying strings and a tantalizing oldschool house beat. From it’s beautiful, vocally driven vibe to a high energy DJ weapon, better “Hold Tight” as this gem is out now on Spinnin’ Deep.
Released earlier this year to critical acclaim, “Hold Tight” brought a progressive tinged beat and deep clubbing groove, courtesy of Canada’s finest BLOND:ISH, one of deep house most treasured tastemakers, alongside French DJ/producer Nico De Andrea, known for his blend of melancholic pop with afro house and techno rhythms.
Following its spring release, the record gained traction throughout the summer, receiving widespread DJ support from tastemakers like Pete Tong, Claptone and Vintage Culture to headliners like Tiësto, R3hab and Yves V. A popular club tune, “Hold Tight” is still making waves on the floor, steadily building DJ support and streams, reached over 1.5 plays on Spotify alone.
Which paved the way for a powerful remix treatment, delivered by one of the best in the game. French producer Dombresky already delivered stellar remixes for the likes of Armand van Helden, A-Trak, Claptone and Anabel Englund, and has created a stir with his radiant house sound for over a decade already.
“Hold Tight” sees him dive deep into club euphoria, as he lets piano chords roll through an oldschool house beat. While the original song matched the cadence of Darla Jade’s tender vocals with equally poignant productions and delicate melodies, in Dombresky’s world she’s drawn into an uplifting context, emphasized by fierce percussion, upwinding drum crescendos and those powerful, rhythmic piano chords.
Dombresky keeps his eyes steady on the dance floors with this one, allowing the beat to lead the vocals, maintaining a sharp and punchy groove, turning the record into a destined DJ crowdpleaser in this revitalized new version. Better “Hold Tight” once again, cause this record leaves no doubt about its ecstasy inducing intentions.
