Music Review: Hold Yuh - Gyptian

Speed: 101 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 100 to 105 bpm

The DJ’s Take: This track is a perfect example of beauty in simplicity. Simple keyboard-driven melody, simple shimmering synth underneath (like the one at the beginning of Young Forever), simple bass, and simple drums. I’ve gotten a couple written-on-a-napkin requests for this one, and most importantly, you can make a pretty sweet 4 song mix with it (see below; use key adjust).

Amazon: Hold You

DJ’s - mix this with: No Letting Go (Album Version), This Is How We Do It - Montell Jordan, Get Busy (Album Version)
