Taking a step back from his usual slow house structure, Figgy’s latest remix of Justin Bieber’s “Hold Tight” falls somewhere between woefully nostalgic and perspective-altering re-imagination. As we’ve noted before, pitching down R&B isn’t exactly a new science at that point, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be done in a functional, effective manner. Figgy’s turning down of Bieber’s vocals works in tandem with twinkling synth work and refreshingly bouncy percussion, never settling down for a simple “screwed” effect. It’s not the most innovative remix on the block, but we’re glad Figgy took the reigns and not another less-gifted producer.
