Complete with remixes from Lee Coombs and Calvetron, this is an impeccable package but let’s kick off with the original mix – a tweaky mass of electronic drive which sounds like very little else out there. Constantly evolving and changing tack, “Gotta Hold It” is the Hyperion sound to down a tee as blends techno, electro and doffs it’s cap to breakbeat within it’s all too short 6 minute 45 lifespan.
US based Londoner Lee Coombs needs no introduction and is the perfect remix choice for such a beautifully unruly release. In typical style Coombs fuses early 1990s acid house and hardcore sounds with a bang-on-the-minute groove which results in a pounding peak time re-interpretation.
Despite having a gig schedule that reads like a lonely planet guide, new talent Calvertron has been drafted in for the final remix. 808 percussion drives the track but those expecting a fully “minimal” outing will be wrong footed as the original tracks synth onslaught is teased into the mix to create a peak of epic proportions.
