Diplo is back in solo-mode with two absolute screamers,’Hold You Tight’ & ‘Bubble Up’. The tracks, released on his own Mad Decent imprint, hear the mega-producer revert back to creating dancefloor-ready house bangers after some time away focusing on his LSD and Silk City side-projects.
‘Hold You Tight’, a deep and groovy number with emotive chord progressions, hears Diplo drop a nifty UKG throwback sample, courtesy of KP & Envyi’s iconic classic ‘Swing My Way’. Meanwhile, ‘Bubble Up’ on the flip-side, is a stripped-back percussive number with an unbelievably hefty, groove-laden bass line. Panned beats wrap themselves around a raw, round bottom end, alongside tweaky vocals and light synth work. This track is all about the communication between the bass and percussion, and it works perfectly bound to get you moving on the floor.
