Ohio-born/LA-based producer obli continues to make his mark on the electronic scene his brand new infectious single ‘Hold It’, the latest gem from his forthcoming EP ‘Change’ due out this December via ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective that packs in plenty of groove and vibrancy throughout its duration.
It’s hard not to fall in love with ‘Hold It’. Whether it’s the catchy hook vocal that cements itself in your brain, the highly spirited natured of the keys or the crunchy combination of the guitars and bass shaking up the mix, obli produces a stunning mix with plenty of life and uplifting colour that is sure to get you moving.
“It feels weird to be making dance music during a pandemic as often when I’m working on it I envision a group of people dancing to it at a show or at a club. Obviously that hasn’t been the case this year. About a month or so into the lockdown my now wife and I started hanging with one of my really good friends and we would have these super fun dance nights with just the three of us. It felt so good to put on playlists or sort of DJ and just let loose for a couple of hours. ‘Hold It’ was sort of born out of those nights – wanting to hear something that just felt good and that you could dance to.” – obli
