Mo' Funk - Hold It Back: Jon Silva Remix out now

Just recently finished a remix for my serbian buddies from Nish, also known as the label Balkan Connection.

This time, I was asked to rework "Hold It Back" by Mo' Funk. My remix still features the same deep tech Jon Silva sound you'd expect from me but you will surely notice a little update soundwise. At this moment, I have a weakness for those stomach-punching basslines laid out on a solid beat. The groove evolves and a slow build-up takes you towards the break. The energy level is brought down, the main vocal of the original is being introduced, the pad sound elevates your conscience to a higher level, just to unleash that bass drum right into your chest again. You cannot help but just move - at least that's the way it works my body.

Please make sure you also check out the other great tracks and versions on Balkan Connection 082:

If you want to hear the mix in nearly full length, you should check out untitled music's UM54 mix, downloadable from Soundcloud. It also contains my remix for Berny's "Shplatten" track, to be released through Aenaria Tech on 4th October (more on that remix later).
