LISTEN: Kilter ‘Hold Me’ ft. Youth (Young Franco Remix)
Both KILTER and YOUNG FRANCO have the world at their feet. KILTER, who has just finished touring with THE KITE STRING TANGLE, is now playing spectacular sets of his own across the country.
The Sydney producer has created stellar remixes including his extremely popular adaptation of SNAKADAKTAL’s track ‘Fall Underneath’, and has had huge success with his debut original ‘Hold Me’ in 2013.
YOUNG FRANCO is on a similar trajectory. After we premiered his debut EP ‘FUTUREFUNK’ back in December, the 19-year-old producer from Queensland has toured Australia and played a variety of shows including Brisbane’s own Valley Fiesta.
‘Hold Me’ features YOUTH and was one of the most popular dance tracks of 2013. The original mix was quite slow and had light vocals dance over very deep synths and percussion. With a tropical tone, ‘Hold Me’ is quite vibrant, and YOUNG FRANCO has turned this up by ten with his remix.
Utilising beaming synths and deep distorted vocals, very light marimbas hold the tropical modes in place whilst also adding a piece of smooth funk with a melody that gets you grooving from the first listen.
There hasn’t been much word on what will feature on YOUNG FRANCO‘s EP, or when it will be released, but keep your eyes peeled.
