3Bridge Records presents “Hold On To Me EP” by Eric Shans

We’re happy to present one of the 3Bridge Records label heads, Eric Shans‘ new release- the ‘Hold On To Me EP‘. And proudly, we welcome the fantastic producer Riccicomoto (aka Enrico Regini) to the label offering 2 amazing remixes, as well as vocalist Uliya who’s featured on the track ‘Move’.

Hold On To Me‘ is a real exercise in the melody-driven deep house. Analog chord sequences, rhythmic vocal snippets, and a slick bottom end are the main drivers here. It’s a track that’s meant to be played for sunset, desert sunrises, beach days, or at a crystal blue pool. The main vocal hook is a Persian-type chant, which is what the title is based on. Eric’s trademark approach to composing ethereal, melodic grooves is in full throttle here making you dance and at the same time dream. Riccicomoto’s mix slows down the pace and creates a beautiful cavernous tapestry of sound with deep, dubbed chords, effected voices, and stellar sound design.

‘Out Of My Mind’ ups the tempo a bit and it is simply captivating in its’ wistfulness and endearing sounds. Both new romantic and melancholy (often a trademark in Eric’s productions), it layers melody with grace and effortlessness along with a driving beat and bass line with vox samples that strike through the heart. Riccicomoto’s version takes the song and adds even more vocals and classical type instrumentation and it has an almost neo-soul approach with an absolutely beautiful Balearic atmosphere; one of those songs that would be perfect for lazy mornings and nights with a lover or friends, or late night drives with starry skies. Distant violins, fuzzy arpeggios, and outer space synth sounds fly in and out of the mix slowly and effectively.

Balancing the new romantic and melancholy (often a trademark in Eric’s productions), the track layers melody with grace and effortlessness along with a driving beat and bass line with vocal samples that strike through the heart. Riccicomoto’s version takes the song and adds even more vocals and instrumentation, delivering an almost neo-soul approach with an absolutely Balearic beautiful atmosphere; one of those songs that would be perfect for lazy mornings and nights with a lover or friends, or late night drives with starry skies. Distant violins, fuzzy arpeggios, and outer space synth sounds fly in and out of the mix slowly and effectively.

To conclude on a groovy note ‘Move’ features the vox of Uliya and it’s a funky tech house romp. It will get you up and on a dance floor as dirty bass lines, big house hits, and subtle melodic riffs play off each other while the shuffling tough percussion and a simple vocal refrain that tells you to move, and to not overthink it.

This is a stunning new EP from one of the 3Bridge Records captains, one you won’t want to miss.
