Man! You ever just have one of those tracks that speaks to you on all levels? I’m talking about the type of track that whenever you heart it, you just get lost in the song and forget about reality. Nothing matters except for the beats and the adrenaline rush creeping into your veins.
Well, a track that has always done that to me is the timeless 1987 Ralphi Rosario & Xaviera Gold track “You Used To Hold Me.” That track is such a powerful dosage of classic Chicago house, and the lyrics are filled with so much sass! I especially love the section of the song around the 3 minute marker when the vocalist starts dissing this other female and begins talking about how nobody can satisfy her man but her…he’s hers, all hers.
The track will always remain one of my favorites and of course, a highlight in the career of Chicago DJ Ralphi Rosario. But in the tradition of what makes music awesome, we have been served up with a new remix.
Yesterday while listening to an SS Radio UK podcast, I heard the new remix of the classic Ralphi Rosario track “You Used To Hold Me.” The remix comes from Spiritchaser and it was recently released on Cha Cha Boom! Recordings.
A few remixes were released, including the Stephan Grondin remix & the Alain Jackinksy remix. But by far, the Spiritchaser Vocal Mix happens to the best. It’s a superb fusion of soul, bass, and sexy vocals that made the original such a hot sound.
Peep the remix Spiritchaser remix below and if you’d like, download it (it’s not free) from Traxsource.
