Few acts in dance music are as hot and happening as Vintage Culture is right now. The Brazilian tastemaker has been cultivating a considerable presence within electronic music over the past few years with a slew of singles, collabs and high-profile remixes, and now reinforces his spot alongside the scene’s finest with this fresh take on Kasablanca’s 2020 single ‘Hold Me Close’, which was part of their six-track ‘Human Learning’ EP.
Vintage Culture’s remix of ‘Hold Me Close’ is a cut designed to supercharge the dance floor. With the gliding synths of the original soaring over a delectable mixture of crisp percussion loops, raw bass and radiant piano chords, this rendition shows exactly why the Brazilian hit machine is currently one of the most sough-after creators around.
“‘Hold Me Close’ by Kasablanca is a beautiful song”, Vintage Culture says. “When I first heard it, I was touched by the emotion of the vocals and the lyrics. I’m flattered to remix ‘Hold Me Close’, and I hope you guys enjoy it!”.
