4 years after the conception of Heist Recordings with the 'Break up to make up' EP by label heads Detroit Swindle, they deliver their 4th solo record and release #26 for the label. On the 'Can't hold it' EP, the guys showcase their love for lush disco, analogue basslines and leftfield musicians, bringing in NYC native Willie Burns for a remix that shows you the darkest side of Heist yet. The title track and EP opener should feel like a warm welcome to those who enjoyed last year's 'Howsmusic' so much: warm subs, galloping hi-hats and an exotic synth loop that'll get stuck in your head for hours and hours. 'Just not Norma' goes on in a similar manner, this time built around a few simple but effective keys chops and the lovely solo work of Mark de Clive-Lowe, adding a dash of emotional P-funk to the groove. The B-side takes a jump into more electronic territory with both versions of 'Tamarindus hollandicus". The original evolves around a bell-like percussion loop and a roaring Moog bass, with synth, strings and piano loops exchanging their spot on center stage. Willie Burns gets all dark and trippy on his excursion into electro territory. Machinegun-like claps and haunting strings accompany the breakbeat-not-breakbeat and ruthless bassline to give the EP a thrilling finale. These 4 tracks show you a wide variation of dancefloor moods and hopefully will make you fist pump, strip, get down, jump, scream or do whatever it is you do when you're releasing your energy at a party.
