VINYLMATT MUSIC drop their first release of 2022 with Sirrah & Eli James’s Hold On, backed up by a trio of stellar remixes from Vanilla Ace, Narda and Dalston Lane.

Eli James and Sirrah came together through their passion for House Music, Djing and beatmaking. Their energetic sets, tight productions and eccentric personality has earned them bookings at several festivals and venues including Outlook Croatia, Bassfest, 02 Academy and XOYO.

Similarly, they have shared stages with artists such as Bicep, Skream, Low Steppa, Solardo and have already landed releases on labels such as Goodside, Houz, Deepfake and Wyldcard between them.

Having experimented with several underground genres, their dance-floor ready track ‘Hold On’ focuses specifically on powerful and uplifting piano chords coupled with a Groovy bassline and mesmerising vocals reminiscent of the early 90s.

Remixes come from Vanilla Ace, Narda and Dalston Lane. Vanilla Ace deploys his trademark chunky drums and crisp percussion for a full-blooded techy version that still retains some of the soulful quality of the original. Narda’s remix is warm, uplifting and effortlessly positive, while Dalston Lane completes the super strong package with a thunderous rave-appropriate reimagining complete with fizzing synths and a hand-in-the-air piano line for the ages.

Hold On is out 01 April
