Acclaimed producer Jack Back and Afro house pioneer THEMBA unite for ‘Give Me Something To Hold’ on Defected, joining the London label’s extra special 25th anniversary series Together. David Guetta created the Jack Back alias to return to his house roots, quickly building a strong relationship with the London label thanks to the chart-topping Defected hit ‘(It Happens) Sometimes. ‘ Then, in 2024, he released a highly anticipated remix of label staple Dennis Ferrer’s ‘Hey Hey,’ showcasing his fresh Afro-inspired sound.

Now, the French titan joins forces with THEMBA, a prolific South African DJ who has brought his unique take on electronic music to the world since 2018. From explosive early releases like ‘Who Is THEMBA?’ to remixing works from Vintage Culture, Kerri Chandler, and Bob Sinclar, THEMBA’s meteoric rise to success has culminated in sets with Black Coffee at Hï Ibiza – cementing him as one of the biggest touring artists out of the continent.

Now, in 2024, the two powerhouses come together for the hypnotic club cut ‘Give Me Something To Hold’ on Defected, as THEMBA’s modern, Afro-electronic rhythms work with Jack Back’s melodically engaging production, complete with arresting vocals that build tension in all the right places.‘Give Me Something To Hold’ is available now on Defected.
