F*CLR 30th release makes you want to be transported to Chicago house loft roots, so much so, you'll need to 'Hold Me Back'.

Kid Enigma's last couple of releases have been on Tech House label, Sink or Swim; 'Run It Back' and 'Out Of My Mind' but this new release is very him but back in the day with Chip E.

'Hold Me Back', in all it's five versions, is in ya face, no holds barred jackin' 'n' a-rockin' hip-house.  Any rap with the line, "smell the coffee, push that cup of tea aside" has my vote.

Long enough for a long a speedy turbo trainer workout (Ed. could do with 20 minute version?) but I really like the heavy organ on the original mix.

Chip E has been an influence for a very long time ago being at the start of house and jack with Joe Smooth and Frankie Knuckles; 5 years ago, his Xmas party was supporting Marshall Jefferson!  Kid Enigma has been a kid since he was DJing at 15 years old and his peace and love message on this track is infectious, especially as we've got remixes the team of DJ Paul Funk and Quinten De Rozario going above and beyond.  Love the DJ Paul Funk 'Dubstrumental' and  'Voacuda Mix' (I do hope that there's a full on instrumental take me to Rio batucada coming our way) and Quinten's mix is as bouncey as any old skool classic.

Hot on the heels of the label's Andrew Sant/Kameelah Waheed monster, 'Love Honor Respect' there's a huge positive vibe at F*CLR that we all need right now; so don't get on your bike, don't hole back, DANCE!
