Throwback EDM Sub Focused on Holding On

I was lucky enough to have chosen @skrillex as my gateway drug to Dubstep last year. He's without a doubt one of the best in his lane right now and a solid bridge for those who enjoyed electronic music before Dubstep. Now that I've gained a little more familiarity with the genre's landscape, I'm starting to pick new favorites like @subfocus. In an attempt to turn back the clock two years to a time where Dubstep and EDM didn't really exist in the US, I felt compelled to share a throwback favorite from 2010 tonight. Before you hear Sub Focus's version of @ruskoofficial's track Hold On featuring the beautiful @amber_coffman of the @dirtyprojectors, check the original below...

First off, I'm going to go out on a limb and opine that Amber Coffman has a great 90s hook voice. I mean that as a compliment too because she sounds alright on the original version of Hold On, but when Sub Focus injects some heavy synths into the original, it completely transforms the track into something brilliant. The build up that gives way to the electronic symphony of awesomeness is EDM at it's finest in my humble opinion. That should mean more than it did a couple months ago when I only started scratching the surface of EDM as a whole.
