Boomkat Product Review:
Brooklyn's Holy Ghost! Are a duo born of DFA-produced outfit Automato, and here make their debut 12" with three different versions of disco pop nugget 'Hold On', which forms a hybrid of trad '70s American disco and more synth-heavy Italo shapes. The original version is a top quality, typically DFA outing with an effortlessly en vogue helping of pop, but if the vocal's a bit too much for you, there's always the instrumental version to fall back on. Maximising the disco presence is the Blackjoy 'Mazego Groove' remix that spans the entirety of the B-side, which piles on percussion and modulating funk gestures from the bass and synth tracks while dropping some sugar-coated stringa into the bargain. Quite delightful.
